And i couldn't understand if you have driven the car a lot or not. If not please do and you will understand
Your post is self explanatory. You are habitual at changing gears at 2000 rpm whereas in Jazz gear shifting can be delayed beyond 3000 rpm.
About engine pick up beyond 2500 rpm, you missed my point regarding momentum and 2nd gear.
Further, I agree that i10 engine is optimised for 2000rpm but one can not extrapolate the same to all other engine, specially the rev happy Honda engines. BEP (best efficiency point) is a engine specific characteristics.
I tried my best to give you a proper perspective and you may or may not give a heed to that.
But what I wish that readers here get a view from both ends and may not swayed away by your struggle and corresponding deduction that the engine is pathetic.
Your driving style does not suit the engine and hence you may feel the engine pathetic. I respect your view point but its not portraying the complete story.
