With a focus on reliability, practicality and versatility, the new Honda Jazz is getting lots of attention. From the numerous features that come as standard to impressive economy figures and running costs, the Honda Jazz is an all-round small family hatchback with a great deal to offer.

Performance

Seeing as there are several petrol engines available, every driver’s requirements are catered for. All models return over 50mpg on a combined cycle and produce low levels of CO2 emissions, meaning no Honda Jazz owner has to pay out for UK road-tax. What’s more, these punchy drivetrains deliver responsive acceleration and plenty of power.

For those truly concerned with economy and environmental impact, the range of Honda Jazz hybrids produce just 104g/km of C02 and are capable of 62.8mpg.

All hybrid models come with automatic Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) as standard, which guarantees optimal performance and efficiency. With this clever gearbox adjusting to the owner’s driving style, you can be assured of a comfortable and smooth ride.

Design

Although the Honda Jazz is pleasing to the eye, various styling features have an additional purpose. The rear combination light with red lens draws attention the curved body, so the car remains visible at all times. Low-rolling resistance tyres also improve looks while reducing drag.

In spite of its small form, the Honda Jazz has been designed as an all-purpose vehicle with space and functionality in mind. Featuring a tight-turning circle and a short nose and rear end, parking is an effortless undertaking. Its compact size with a low centre of gravity also means the Jazz remains planted and stable on the road and in the corners.

On high-end versions, a stunning glass panoramic roof that opens at the touch of a button is available. However, all models still benefit from a great deal of natural light, thanks to a specially designed windscreen and thin pillars.

Interior

Providing more space than you would think, the Honda Jazz’s interior is incredibly roomy. Perhaps the most striking and innovative feature is the magic rear seats, which lift up, fold over and lock down in one movement. With over 180 seat combinations, any storage problem is solved.

All models also come with electric front windows, electric adjustable and heated door mirrors, remote keyless entry, a multi-information display and a stereo CD tuner with RDS and MP3 connectivity.

Safety

Having received a maximum 5-star safety rating from independent crash test organisation Euro NCAP, the Honda Jazz is one of the safest cars in Europe. As well improvements to the body structure, technology systems and interior features, additional safety precautions that come as standard include ABS brakes, electronic brake-force distribution and brake assist.

Front, side and curtain Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) airbags, front seatbelt pre-tensioners, ISO Fix child seat restraint mechanisms and Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) enhance the Jazz’s safety credentials further.

Overall

Therefore if you’re in the market for an affordable, economical and safe hatchback with countless additional benefits, look no further than the new Honda Jazz.
