Honda Jazz

Honda Jazz 2015The Honda Jazz is a little less boxy than its predecessor with a high window line and sharp body creases and a practical and logically laid out interior.  Built on a new platform, 95mm longer and a wheelbase increased by 30mm, leading to more cabin space for all, particularly rear passengers that have 115mm more legroom over the outgoing model, boot space is 17 litres up on the old model up to a near class leading 354 litres. Like before, all Jazz models get Honda’s brilliant Magic Seat setup, allowing the rear bench to fold completely flat in a swift and easy-to-operate single motion. It’s really handy and makes the Jazz one of the most practical cars in its class.


2015 Jazz motability carThe Jazz is available in three trim levels, S, SE and EX, the option exists to add a Sat Nav to the SE and EX for around £2-400 added to the advance payment as apposed to £610 at retail. All cars get Bluetooth, DAB, cruise control and auto lights, air-con and all round electric windows. Upgrade from the basic S to mid-spec SE and you’ll benefit from 15″ alloy wheels, a seven-inch touchscreen and all-round parking sensors, forward collision warning and lane departure and traffic sign recognition. The flagship EX adds 16-inch alloys, a rear view camera, climate control and a leather steering wheel.


Honda Jazz 2015The sole engine choice is a non turbo charged 1.3-litre petrol with 101bhp paired to either a six speed manual or CVT automatic gearbox and it performs very well, smooth and quiet with ample power, 0-62mph time of 11.2 seconds when connected to the manual gearbox. The CVT automatic takes longer to reach 62mph, hitting the speed in 12 seconds. It’s reasonably economical too offering 56.5 mpg as a manual or 61.4 miles per gallon as an automatic.


2015 Jazz
The Honda Jazz competes in a tough class, the Renault Clio, Hyundai i20 and Ford B-Max are all excellent but the Honda Jazz offers space in abundance, it drives very well and is designed with comfort and practicality in mind, it is the near perfect all rounder. The Honda Jazz has brand loyalty that other manufacturers can only dream of as 80% of owners have previously owned a Jazz. Says it all really.
