Review

The Honda 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.

get the best price

EX models are quite pricey, but if you don't mind splashing out, this trim level brings 16in alloy wheels, keyless entry and start, front heated seats, a leather steering wheel (that’s also heated) and gear knob, LED front fog lights, privacy glass, blind spot monitoring, a rear-view camera and sat-nav.

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.
