Honda Jazz

(2015 - present)

The Honda Jazz is a five-door supermini-class small hatchback. The current model was launched in the summer of 2015 and was most recently updated at the end of 2018.

The Jazz has received generally average reviews from the UK motoring media, with a few outstanding scores from some consumer titles like Honest John. Based on 20 reviews as of September 2019, the Jazz has an overall Expert Rating that places near the bottom of the supermini class.

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