Looking forward to giving it a test drive and see how different it is to the 1.3.

If it is configured the same as the 1.5 engine in the HR-V without the Atkinson cycle at the lower revs then it will provide smoother, more progressive, performance as well as more overall power at the high end. I have found the HR-V to be a much more pleasant drive than the Mk 3 Jazz for this reason. However, it's possible that Honda might retain the Atkinson cycle for the Jazz to provide better economy but the longer stroke of the 1.5 should still give proportionally better torque than the 1.3.

No prices given in the article in this week's Auto express mag.

The Auto Express article states that the facelift 1.3 Jazz will have a five speed manual gearbox.

IMHO 6 speed box is much better than 5 speed and Honda are making a mistake staying with a 5 speeder,  especially at price of Jazz.  Basically the smaller the engine the more gears you need...............

Indeed. I have an infinite number within a given range ;)

The bigger engine is not available across the range but only in the 'Dynamic' which has lots of other bells and whistles and will obviously cost lots more.

I agree with that. I find myself reaching for the gear lever, thinking I am in 4th, when I am actually in 5th. A 6th gear would be great. And as many of you know, I have already made room for it in my box!

You still have to select your own gears? How quaint.  ;D

The current 1.3 manual has a 6 speed box!

6th is only useful on the motorway and you have to change down to go up hills or overtake.  No torque at the low end of the revs.

Surely its not so hard to understand that a lot of drivers prefer to interact with the car and not just be a bystander while it does everything for you.  I drove auto boxes and CVT for a lot of years,  just not everybodies cup of tea,  they are useful in towns and cities,  but I have very little reason to drive in those places.

Personally, I much prefer an automatic to a manual transmission, but I have no inclination for a CVT, or a DSG for that matter (though I do like the BMW version).

Nothing better than an automatic when stuck in heavy traffic on the M25 parking lot and any busy motorway or congested town driving, after driving manual and occasional auto cars for many years changed permanently to an auto fifteen years ago and would never go back to manual, people that say there is no control with an auto don't know how to drive one especially a modern auto car with paddles, if they are good enough for Lewis Hamilton they are good enough for me. ;D
