To early for a review but one week on and I am a very satisfied owner this little engine is amazing plenty of torque and a strong performance also very quite on the motorway the handling is also very good and the ride quality excellent really copes well with bad road surfaces I have arthritis in my lower back but find the seats very comfortable I know the fuel tank holds one gallon less than the G9 but I cant remember the last time I used a full tank in a day not having a hard parcel shelf I can live with that it only covering up what in the boot anyway no magic seats I can live with that to because if I buy a car from another manufacturer it still wont have magic seats .

Until it gets 1000 miles on the clock it is not not really worth monitoring the mpg and like I said in a the other post I am a smiles to the gallon guy not a mpg guy .
I had a drive in a 1.0 auto tonight, was really impressed by it. It is even making me think is manual really the right option for me now. So much easier to drive in traffic.

It can only get better as the miles accumulate ;-)

I picked up my 1.0 EX + tech pack CVT in polished metal yesterday and love it. Just turned 100 miles over a mix of country lanes, B and A roads and average mpg hovering around 33mpg which I am hoping will improve as the 8G 2.2 diesel I've left behind averaged 43 and the Honda spec reckons 50. Just scratching the surface on the new technology but a least you get a printed manual and what a tome it is!
