The Honda Jazz is the small car to beat for passenger and luggage space, and its unique and incredibly flexible rear seating only adds to its practicality. It’s not the most fun car in the class (that’s the Ford Fiesta) or the most comfortable riding (that’s the Peugeot 208), but with excellent visibility, it’s definitely easy to drive. Its hybrid power also makes it really cheap to fuel and combines with strong predicted resale values and good equipment levels to at least partially offset its rather high list prices.get the best price

Entry-level SE is surprisingly well equipped, featuring automatic lights and wipers, LED headlights, climate control, power-folding door mirrors, electric windows front and rear, a front USB port, a DAB radio, Bluetooth, clever ‘Magic’ rear seats, a front centre armrest, adaptive cruise control, and a whole host of safety equipment including automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assistance and traffic sign recognition. 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.

The only engine you can have in your Jazz is a 1.5-litre petrol-electric hybrid. With a total output of 108bhp, 0-62mph takes a respectable 9.4sec, and it has enough poke for most situations. However, you do need to work it quite hard on the motorway, where it sounds a little coarse. Drive it sensibly, though, and it’ll average around 60mpg, with very low CO2 emissions to boot.
