From what I've read (not my personal experience) 1.2 manual is more pleasant to drive than CVT. But then again, I personally know lots of people who hate shifting gears all the time while driving in a city :)

You have made the right engine/gear choice.
I find the CVT is better because it always takes the right gear in relation to the torque that is needed so you have always a good accelation. Especially in Sport Mode.
In practice, you will usually be a little faster than the manual. That's the experience I've got with my 1.2 CVT so far.

Not sure on the merits of the 1.2 or the Hybrid but I'm completely sold on the CVT box.

It's made driving a pleasure again, especially in cities. Sport mode is very quick and the cars excellent handling only improves the experience. Yes it is a bit noisy on hard acceleration but I wouldn't go back to a manual any time soon.

I personally was in doubt too. I drove an Auris Hybrid... but the 1.2 CVT was a bit cheaper... but after doing some math I found out that even with the lousy 8000 km a year I would earn back the 1200 euro's extra for the Hybrid in about 2.5 years. So in the end I went for the hybrid. Also there were no 1.2 CVT available for a test drive. A drove the manual... but that reminded me that I don't want to shift manually if not necessary... The hybrid was superb.

But I assume that the will drive fine too, it is a great car and the manual was snappy, so the CVT will also be snappy.

I really hope you like it, I've just spent two hours in rush hour traffic trying to navigate the ring road around Manchester. I had my music on the USB and the CVT hybrid on Eco mode, I got 69 mpg and honestly felt so relaxed I was sorry to get home!!
