Impressive versatility and load capacity. Much improved steering and handling. Easy to drive with manual or CVT auto.
Only one engine choice. No hybrid variant. Breathless on the motorway.

Introduction

The Honda Jazz has always been one of the most cleverly designed, Tardis-like cars on sale - and the all-new model is better than ever. With a larger boot, higher quality interior materials, even more rear passenger space and lots of clever little touches, it has the versatility of a much larger car but with compact dimensions and lower running costs.

All cars get useful standard equipment including DAB radio, cruise control and air conditioning, but if you want alloy wheels, parking sensors and a touchscreen system you’ll need a mid-grade SE model. Top-spec EX models get keyless entry and start, climate control and a parking camera, while Navi variants of SE and EX gain a Garmin navigation system.

As seems to be the vogue these days, the Jazz comes with various active safety systems. All cars get emergency city braking, plus mid and top-spec models come with a package including a collision warning system, auto dimming headlights, lane departure warning and an intelligent speed limiter that adapts to the current speed limit, using traffic sign recognition.

With a list price of £13,495 for the basic model, rising to £17,425 for the top-spec automatic, the Jazz isn’t cheap – you could get a plusher Volkswagen Polo for less. But there is nothing on sale to touch the Jazz for practicality except perhaps the Nissan Note – but it doesn’t have Honda’s ‘Magic’ seats. The only other alternative is a less wieldy estate car. In fact the Jazz is probably the most practical small car on sale.
