It may be small, but the All-New Jazz is fun to drive! With dimensions that are truly deceptive, the new 2018 look is bold and assertive on the outside, with so much room on the inside it's hard to believe it's a city car. But that's not the only thing that will surprise you; there's a new Sport grade available with a responsive 130PS 1.5 litre i-VTEC engine.
The new-style Honda Jazz has never been in better shape; you’ll be surprised at how much you can get from so little! Stylish on the outside with a roomy interior, the Honda Jazz has never been in better shape.There are 7 colours to choose from including the popular White Orchid Pearl and Sunset Orange, all finished with sporty black alloys which bring a whole new lease of life to the Jazz. It's also been redesigned with added attractions including subtle red accent lines on the rear bumper and LED daytime running lights too. In the New Jazz, you're sure to stand out.
The Honda Jazz has incredible amounts of head and legroom, and if you really wanted to stretch out, Honda's pioneering Magic Seats quickly fold down to accommodate your lifestyle and everyday needs. But the beauty of the New Jazz is that the interior finish hasn't suffered either. The fascia controls offer a premium feel and the Sport's interior trim is designed with a unique pinstripe and orange line stitching which adds some extra detail.
The new face of the Honda Jazz stands out with its sporty lower grille, new side sills, a tailgate spoiler and Berlina black alloy wheels. The rear bumper adds a sporty touch and underlines the supremely practical, large boot and when coupled with Honda's staple magic seats, this offers a truly enormous load space. All together, the new appearance creates a big impact for Honda's smallest and smartest looking car.
Inside, Honda CONNECT keeps the things you love, like your music and your friends, close to hand. Using the 7” touchscreen, everything you need to stay connected is within easy reach, and the Bluetooth and USB functions offer added driver convenience.
The New Honda Jazz now comes with a choice of two great i-VTEC engines; the economical and proven 1.3 litre is complemented by an all-new 1.5 which you’ll find it under the bonnet of the latest Sport grade. It’s a really energetic engine that’s perfect for zipping around town or for pushing on beyond the city limits – we call it fun-injection!
A precise 6-speed manual gearbox will reward you with a spirited drive, but if you prefer an automatic option, our advanced 7-speed Continuously Variable Transmission brings with it seamless gear changes, higher economy and lower emissions. You can even exploit the Jazz’s sporty character by switching automatic modes and using its racing-car inspired paddle shift too!

Honda has taken its hugely successful Jazz and given it a welcome update. PA gets behind the wheel to put it to the test.
Welcome to a new take on a hugely successful idea. Honda has shifted more than 300,000 Jazz models in the UK since 2001 and it’s still a firm favourite with older buyers.
This one, with its more aggressive styling, faster steering and more direct chassis setup, improves its trademark incredibly clever interior space but adds just a little more verve from behind the wheel.
Underneath the bonnet of the Jazz sits a 1.3-litre petrol engine with 101bhp, with power sent to the front wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox. Performance figures aren't dazzling; the sprint to 60mph takes 11 seconds, and all in you'll be doing 118mph. Economy figures are good too, with Honda claiming 56.5mpg on the combined cycle.
Let’s make one thing absolutely clear: the Jazz is not a fast car. Fitted with the CVT gearbox it’s a real struggle to get it up to A-road speeds, which defies its fuel-saving point. The manual gearbox makes better use of the new 1.3-litre engine and benefits from a 10% shorter throw and a 25% lighter action than the old one. The steering ratio is now faster, which transforms the directness of the front end.
Drive incredibly gently at urban speeds and the CVT shines, keeping fuel consumption low (I achieved 62.8mpg on a quiet urban/suburban run), but it performs badly in busy conditions because traffic simply moves too quickly.
It rides very well for a car on such small wheels, though, absorbing lumps and bumps with impressive composure. It’s comfortable, with seats that find a nice balance between the supportive and the soft.
Personally we're not much of a fan of the new car’s looks. It’s all a bit fussy and over-designed for my tastes, but you’ll notice the familiar one-volume silhouette even though the new Jazz is longer, with a longer wheelbase and more interior space.
You could argue it has a humble readiness about it, especially on 15-inch wheels; the smaller of the two fitments. It’s like a little robot friend who’s always ready to help, and it comes in some interesting colours like this burnt orange and a flattering metallic blue.
This is the real reason to buy a Jazz. There’s an improbable amount of space inside the car; Honda claims more rear knee room than you get in a Mercedes S-Class, improved shoulder room for everyone, a boot that’s larger than a Ford Focus’s (and almost as large as a Golf’s), and of course the so-called Magic Seats.
Lift the bases lift up in a jiffy to leave a yawning space behind the front seats, or pull a lever to fold them down flat in one motion. Fold the front passenger seat down as well and you can fit loads of almost 2.5 metres long inside, although the elderly folks likely to buy the car probably aren’t going to copy Honda’s example of stuffing a surf board into it.
On top-spec EX models the keyless start and digitised air conditioning control panel give a sense of premium quality and solidity, but without them there are ugly switch blanks and dated-looking rotary dials. Adding the CVT gearbox costs a fairly steep £1,100, but as a manual the Jazz offers seriously impressive usability and everyday practicality for a very reasonable price.
The average age of a new Jazz buyer is 61, but Honda hopes the new connectivity features on the latest model will help to bring that down a little. Impressive safety features are a selling point for everyone, and people in need of maximum load space in a sub-four-metre car should walk this way.
