I have a large garage but it would need the junk cleared out first. The junk has increased to fill the space left behind the Jazz. When the Volvo was in the garage it was relatively tidy!

The rolling radius is very similar, not the same,
That' why I said "to all intent and purpose". For all the effect it has in the speedometer it is not worth bothering about. Especially when you consider the wheel/tyre diameter changes with tyre wear anyway.
1,1% is small for tachos, big for other devices.
ABS ECU, used by the whole car CAN Network to get the speed (data sent to many other ECU such as power steering, door locking, instrument panel, engine ecu, infotainment and others) usually have a parameter to be set when you change your tire size, called Speed Index: in my old Clio I had to update it when I replaced OEM 165/65R15 with  optional 185/60R15, even if the circumference difference was about 1,3%. The circumference affects the tachometer, but also brake power: the max brake efficiency, lowering brake lenght, is obtained by keeping the  wheel speed at about 1% less than the vehicle  real speed (1-1,5%% for dry road, 0,8-1% for wet road), so the ABS ECU must know as better as possible the real diameter of the wheel, also because the time spent by the wheel to re-gain speed after the caliper release is used by the ecu to get  the scratch coefficient (dry, wet, snow, mud,...), and this coefficient will change pressure-increase laws of the ABS hydraulics.

Will it fit in the garage?

Personally, I wouldn't go the diesel route. Even though new vehicles claim to be cleaner than old ones I still notice some nasty smells coming out the back end of diesel vehicles, probably when the engines aren't properly warmed up.

Hi There, Swapped mine from 16" rims to 15" and then changed tyres from 185/55/16 to 185/60/15.After my warrenty had run out. speed checked with sat nav and also online with tyre comparsion.Take a look at drivers piller door you will see 2 different sets of tyres for your car.

The main issue for me is the one mentioned by csp below. I hate having to sit with my foot on the brake. There is also the issue of dazzling drivers behind you (brake lights don't bother me when I'm sat behind a car with them on but they do bother some people). The other issue is it is uncomfortable. In a manual I was into neutral, hand brake on, both feet and legs relaxed.

Overall I'm glad to have an automatic but this issue is an annoyance.

Mine is being repaired after being taken last week, a bill for 360 for parts and labour awaits me.

Kwik Fit currently list tyres for it from 52.50 to 209.50, but the cheapest "quality tyre" is 172.50. Bruce recently fitted four new tyres and it cost him 900. Makes your eyes water.

MT jazz owner here so this maybe a silly question but does the engine restart if the gear lever is in park?

Yes - it's a pita and I think the way stop start operates on many automatics is insane. There must be a reason for it. To give you an example - I pull into my drive, brake and the engine cuts out, move the shift into any other position and it starts again so I have now got into the habit of disabling it before I pull in.
That's utterly bonkers design.
