ehm.... depends on what's your expectation lor... if u talking abt power for chionging.... i must say it's not that powerful lah.... but also not that bad too... especially if you go for the manual version... but you are going for Auto...
For normal day to day driving... i must say that it is definitely sufficient and comfortable.... :thumbsup: If want power for chionging... go for the more powerful version 1.5Vtec... :thumbsup:
Anyway.. the current pricing for Jazz is very attractive.....
Doesn't the Jazz have a 1.4L engine, while the Fit is a 1.3L?
I have a Jazz and don't find it underpowered, then again I don't have expectations for a car in that class to perform like a Ferrari. It's comparatively zippy, especially when placed against other cars like the Suzuki Swift and Toyota Altis. Great fuel consumption too... especially in these times of high fuel prices. And it's especially roomy for a small car. The interior space is well thought out and seems a lot bigger when you are inside the car. The rear seats and front passenger seat folds down to accomodate odd sized loads. The lower cushion can be folded up to accomodate tall objects... really versatile.
I had a Jazz 1.4 before trading in for my van. It's pretty nippy for the roads here - so much so that I got three speeding tickets. So easy just to put the foot down and by doing 100km/h. To me, the Jazz was a great little car. Good trunk space, excellent interior (not clunky like cheaper cars) and great drive. I miss it but at least I still have my license.
I have the Honda Jazz, the body is very light, so it can actually pick up speed very fast, I feel the power is good enough, only that due to the body is light, so if I stop at slope going uphill, there is a tendency the car will slide backwards, and another problem is the body is light so when I press the foot on accelerator, it is very sensitive.
