Summary


The Honda Jazz is a five-door supermini-class small hatchback. This model was launched in the summer of 2015 and was updated in late 2018. Production of this model ended in 2019 ahead of the arrival of an all-new Jazz in the summer of 2020.

The Jazz received generally average reviews from the UK motoring media over the course of its production cycle, with a few outstanding scores from some consumer titles like Honest John. Based on 20 reviews by the end of its model life, the Jazz had an overall Expert Rating that placed near the bottom of the supermini class.

The Honda Jazz was universally praised by reviewers for its practicality and spaciousness compared to similarly-sized cars, however it was criticised for poor levels of ride comfort and refinement compared to the best cars in its class.

In a 2020 What Car? survey of the 50 most reliable cars in the UK up to eight years old, the Honda Jazz ranked equal 27th. In its 2021 survey, What Car? rated the Jazz seventh in its list of the most reliable small cars.
