Very fair review from a young reviewer!

Maybe he is too young have developed the prejudices so prevalent amongst older Journos, maybe his young age means German car companies and Ford overlooked him when choosing who to 'sponsor' so far LOL.
Some people will only consider you an expert if they agree with your point of view or advice,  when you give them advice they don't like they consider you an idiot

A helpful report but I'm going to nit pick.  What, no locking wheel nuts, is this a bit more penny pinching or simply because it is a press test car ?

Vic.

Why do we only ever see that colour? I do hope Honda have a decent selection this time round as I am very tempted with what I see.

From the Honda press release:-

The 2015 Jazz is available in three metallic paint finishes (Alabaster Silver, Tinted Silver and Brilliant Sporty Blue), three pearlescent finishes (White Orchid, Crystal Black and Attract Yellow) and two solid colours (Milano Red and Sunset Orange). Brilliant Sporty Blue is a new colour for Jazz, while Tinted Silver, Sunset Orange and Attract Yellow are all-new paint finishes introduced for the first time to the Honda range in Europe for new Jazz.

Easyjet have a new design with more white so I guess they had a lot of orange left over!  ;)

Re Vic's comment about no locking wheel nuts I believe these are a post production item fitted by dealers in the UK. That is why when you buy a new Jazz you get four "spare" wheel nuts - these are the ones that have been replaced with the locking ones by the dealership.

I didn't check the registration plate but wonder if all the reviewers have been taking turns to drive the same car.

I like the orange colour.  :) I've admired the orange Jazzes on the two trips I have made to New Zealand. IMO it's a colour that makes the car visible to other road users and should be able to get quite dirty before it needs cleaning. Plus there's the bonus of the car being easier to find in the car park and it's plain paint so shouldn't be an extra cost.  I'm not so keen on the yellow.
