I had one as a courtesy car whilst the Civic was being MOTíd last week.
Really impressed, responsive engine, 43mpg average and so much easier to live with than the civic for me as getting in and out is a doddle just like the previous Jazzís.
It did feel quicker than my Civic and pulled up a steep hill near me without me knocking it down to 3rd like I have to in my car so itís definately got some torque unlike the 1.3.
Handling wise itís sure footed, hardly any body roll and fantastic brakes.
0-60 feels quicker than the specs suggest and the engine sounds good under heavy throttle and begs to be revved hard although itís no hot hatch by any means they certainly arenít a slow car.
All in all they are better than youíd think although the interior build quality doesnít have the chunky more solid feel of the Civic and the touch screen is fiddly at first but we got used to it pretty quick.
Look great too especially in white, our courtesy car was grey and looked ok but a bit bland.
Iím seriously thinking about trading mine in, already had a quote and various deals offered.
Time will tell.
