2006 Honda Jazz Sport 1.5 petrol from Australia and New Zealand
Have just replaced a 2003 1.3 manual with a new Jazz Sport 1.5 VTEC with CVT and 7 speed manual option.
Already much livelier than the old model. The new instruments are great (I like the way they light up when you open the doors), and the steering wheel stereo controls and gear option change are great and easy to use.
The car came with nasty 9 spoke 15" mag wheels, which have been changed for 17" wheels (8 thin spokes) with tyres up to 205 from 185. The car isn't run in enough to try out the handling yet, but the ride and steering are better than the old model.
Only thing I missed at first was a foot rest, but I don't notice it after owning the car for 7 days.
It's bright metallic gold and has had charcoal metallic stripes added. Will have the windows tinted and the headlights covered in gold contravision just to complete the effect.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
