Superb looking car. No doubts about it. But looking at the small nagging issues you have mentioned seems that Honda has cut corners at this price band. I would try to compare Jazz quality to probably ANHC quality interiors/exteriors/ride and I find it annoying that Honda has missed out some basic stuff.
Still Jazz is leagues ahead of competition in terms of quality. Enjoy your car to maximum.

Having seen both cars in the showroom, I thought that the Jazz looks better finished than the City, to be honest. The City probably has a better ride, but for the city, the Jazz is the better car, in my view. Where it will fall short is in highway ride, handling and safe overtaking. Maybe the names should be interchanged!

Congrats Bijujj on getting a new jazz. It is a good city car.

Even we got our Jazz 2 days back, haven't driven it much just 100km..But initial experience is good, easy maneuverability in city, good mileage, excellent build quality, light steering is good for parking in tight spots.

The things that I didnt like - slow pick up and need to constantly shift down to extract power, found bit of a body roll at speed above 70kph.

Will post a detail review with pics soon..

I recently bought a i20 1.2 after test driving it along with the jazz. Curious to know the basis for your preference for the jazz, whether or not you checked the i20 out at all. Not too many Jazz owners take the trouble to post their reasons for preferring the Jazz as a buy, so this may be of value to many here.

1000 KM report
-----------------------

* Overall fuel efficiency- In city I get 12-13 and on highways 15-17
* No rattles or niggling issues so far
* Practicality is amazing. Last week we had a small get together for which I had to rent out 20 chairs, which could be comfortably stacked into the car. That too with the front seats in the normal position.
* Drove continuously for 9 hours with a 3 hour break in between and was quite comfortable.

I think some one looking for an estate car should consider this one seriously.

Congrats on your car. Considering how little actual drivers have reported on the Jazz, I think you're doing yeoman service to us all here. Keep writing!

those are good figures bijju, surelywith that engine honda does promises of those figures, keep going.About space thats what jazz is all about, no fuss no folds just keep and move with space inside.about your drive was it u alone with those chairs or had other peoples inside too, if so how was drive with occupancy and those chairs along with, how was engine power and overall ride experience if you can share more.

Jazz is of course new. But the CRV looks amazing. Is it new. If not, what do you do to keep the car looking even better than new.

20 stackable plastic chairs weighs less than 2 adults, so cant say that the car was loaded :-). Me and my son in the front seats. But as I wrote, in Jazz you can fold the rear seats flat even with the front seats moved back.

Have driven with 4 adults on a hilly road. Lower end torque is less say compared to my opel 1.6. So one needs to downshift as required. Once you are mentally adjusted to that fact, it pretty much driveable. Handling is sharp at normal speeds (havent driven it beyond 90-100Kmph)

Thumbs up

@bijujj, you have made the best decision - nothing comes close, if your option include petrol.

BTW, nice to hear that your are best utilizing the acres of space inside. Any other hatchback, then a Tata Ace would indeed following your car .

In Kerala, when you hire a Tata Ace, you get three or four union workers free :-). So we try to do maximum ourselves.

Another good thing worth mentioning about Jazz is its small turning radius. You can wriggle out of any tight situation, with ease.

Booked my Jazz. Likely to be delivered in a week - ten days. I read responses on tyre upgrade - should you get MRFs. The showroom people could not tell us what would i finally get. So, should i positively change if I get MRF and no bother if my ride comes on Michelins?
