God, its ugly though

You know something's wrong when the old 2009-ish model looks better than this one.  Simple, chiselled, modern.   It was a very good car too.  Can I have the 10 year old bodyshell with the new pokier VTec motor please.   Better still, can someone shoehorn the old 2.0 VTec in it ;-)

Honda 'Lack of' Design.

After seeing how the Civic is going in the looks department perhaps settling a bland Jazz is no bad thing!

Strange spec decisions

The Jazz is one of the least sporty car on the market, so why on earth have they created a Sport model and then limited the much needed 1.5 engine to this spec. It could be argued its to encourage people to buy the top spec model, but I suspect it is more likely to drive people towards competitor's vehicles. Offer the 1.5 in mid range SE spec and you've actually got quite a useful little car.
