I think some people here and in some other forums are over exaggerating the driving dynamics of petrol jazz. Some casual reader will think that we need a bullock cart or something to make the Jazz get moving. Almost all the cars in this segment have 1.2 l petrol engine and the engine response at lower rpms are more or less similar. Also, everyone is cursing Honda for not providing 1.5 liter engine as if every other manufacturer is offering that engine. I have also test driven Jazz for about 6-8 kilometers with 5 people on board and didn't felt the sluggishness some are describing. But I wouldn't say that it was super responsive at lower rpms. Its somewhere in between. For a daily city commuter I don't think this is going to a deal breaker. If low end drivability is 'the benchmark' for buying a car, the Nissan micra would have sold like hot cakes. I don't think any other car is better tuned for city driving.
