I got this car mainly for safety first, everything else close second, since I having a child around the same time we decided to get a new instead of a used car.

Honda has not disappointed me at all. :)

Same considerations here Chan! Although we loved the visibility, functionality and style of the 2009 Jazz, it lacked the rear end collision protection the City offered. We thus ended up with a 2009 1.5L City.

Averaging 90-100 kms/hr, 80% Highway, I'm getting 15.5 to 16 km/l (measured). The meter seems to be too optimistic though...typically 2 to 2.5 km/l more than what I actually measure.

Except for the new rims and rear tail light, I'm envious with all the MMC interior enhancements they made (e.g. chrome door handles and trim, gunmetal painted panels) =)
