Introduction

I don't have to persuade people into buying a Jazz. They love it anyway, for all of the sensible reasons I'd have used in my sales pitch.

So it's not an emotional decision based on looks alone, as it might be for a Fiat 500 or a MINI. It's the whole package: a car that's going to do everything you want, never let you down, and not cost a lot to run.

The 2008 Jazz takes everything people loved about the old Jazz. Then takes it all a couple of steps forwards.

You get an even more versatile interior. Better performance. Improved economy. And they've also made it handle and ride better, the two less than brilliant aspects of the old car that buyers tolerated because the rest of the car was so good.
