The Jazz is the small car to beat for passenger space, and its unique and incredibly flexible rear seating only adds to its practicality. It’s neither the most fun car in the class (that’s the Ford Fiesta) nor the most comfortable (that’s the Peugeot 208), but with excellent visibility, it’s definitely easy to drive. Hybrid power also makes it really cheap to fuel, and slow depreciation helps make up for high prices.

The Crosstar EX is essentially a more rugged version of the standard Jazz and features bolt-on roof rails, two-tone paint, a unique front grille design, elevated ride height and black plastic cladding around its wheel arches. The interior also benefits from water-repellent fabric upholstery and an eight-speaker sound system with a subwoofer. It's very expensive, though, so we don't recommend it.

You don't need to worry about choosing an engine because there’s only one: a 1.5-litre petrol-electric hybrid. With a total of 108bhp, it allows the Jazz to accelerate quicker than our favourite Volkswagen Polo, and it's very economical in real-world driving, too.
