I hope they give me a CVT Jazz. May shift, or confirm, my suspicions about CVT gearboxes.

Jocko, what are your suspicions exactly?

Basically, that I wouldn't have one in a gift. I have never driven one or been in a car with one, but from what I have read and seen on the net, it is not something I'd like on a car. Fine for a milling machine.
For me a hydraulic automatic transmission with torque converter, Borg Warner style, is the way to go.

On another thread I mentioned a trip, as a passenger, I had taken in a CVT Jazz. In short they seem well suited to driving in an urban setting but I felt it struggled elsewhere and was a bit whiny. I am pretty sure I wouldn't have one although I guess you need to drive it rather than just being a passenger.

I notice Toyota are having a big advertising campaign for the latest Yaris Hybrid (also CVT) and it seems very heavily slanted towards urban driving.

More than ever, and I guess it's a good thing, we have cars aimed at specific situations and markets. The choice out there is better than ever.
