Honda Jazz Overview

Refinement is ok when driving around town, but wind and road noise starts to increase at higher speeds.

The Jazz’s smart and stylish exterior is emulated inside the cabin. In addition to a driver’s seat which is supportive and adjustable to maximise comfort, interior space is excellent. Head and legroom is plentiful throughout the car, despite its small size. The boot is also very roomy, and is equipped with a multi-functional parcel shelf to aid storage.

A favourable level of equipment is provided, including steering wheel-mounted stereo controls, and the Jazz represents very good value for money.


The Honda Jazz was introduced in 2001.

The first generation model was released in many countries across the globe and sold very successfully. It was popular for its spacious interior and large boot. The car scored exceptionally well in crash tests and received a four star rating from Euro NCAP.

The Jazz has been produced in its second generation since 2008. The 5-door hatchback is slightly larger than its predecessor and boasts improved handling. The latest model also offers a smoother ride and more favourable fuel economy.

The second generation model received excellent crash test ratings and has been recognised for several awards.


The Honda Jazz offers reliability and practicality in abundance. Its spacious interior makes for an excellent family vehicle, and the car boasts great fuel economy.
