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.

Entry-level SE trim is fairly well equipped, featuring automatic lights and wipers, LED headlights, climate control, power-folding door mirrors, electric windows front and rear, adaptive cruise control, and a whole host of safety equipment including automatic emergency braking. We’d upgrade to SR trim, though, because for a modest premium this brings a better infotainment system, parking sensors and alloy wheels in place of the SE's plastic wheel trims.

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.
