Unfortunately I had to rule out jazz/crosstar after driving on a motorway with velocities around 120km/h (limit 130km/h). Too much bothersome noise from the engine. And when comparing available parameters between HR-V and Jazz I'm afraid it'll be same with the bigger car. I run 1/3 of my driving on a motorway.

Would like to buy Honda but will have to turn to Toyota CH-R probably which has a stronger engine.
I'm surprised that engine noise is the issue at those speeds.  I would have thought wind and tyre noise would have been more prevalent.

I have to agree. I have a MK1 Jazz but even at 80 mph the tyre and wind noise drowns out my engine. Once I am above 30 mph the engine is the least of my noise concerns.

Under hard acceleration the engine can rev furiously with the CVT box but, in my Mk3, once you've achieved cruising speed, the revs drop right back (2500 ish at 70). This makes for a relaxed cruise and I agree that the main issue then is road and wind noise.

I see there is no height adjustment for the passenger seat on any of the models.  Will wait to see what it is like in the flesh but could be a deal breaker for me (or I should say, my wife).

No, it probably can't climb trees...

The Puma used to be a great little Fiesta-based coupe. Now it's a small crossover. Is nothing sacred anymore?

If Ford ever make a BMW X4-style coupe/crossover and call it...Kapri...then I'll be really worried.

Have you seen what they have done to the Mustang?
