Buy a new Jazz now or wait for the new one?

I bought a 1.4 petrol CVT-7 Jazz in 2006. It has been a great car for my purposes, and apart from brake replacements there have been no problems to date. It gets an annual oil change and biannual transmission fluid change. I read your slightly scary bad points both for my model year and for the new ones.

I am thinking about replacing it, but wonder if I ought to wait for the completely new ones coming in 2014/15? Or should I go for another brand with similar space, etc. before something major goes wrong? The Jazz replaced many Volkswagen Polos, but with AC, all electric mirrors, etc. Honda gave more bang for the buck!

I wouldn't swap for the current Jazz unless you can get a huge discount. Mixture of pictures of how the new one will look on Google. One version shares the styling of the current Civic. The other looks more like the current Jazz.
