Summary


The Honda Jazz is a five-door supermini-class small hatchback. This model was launched in the summer of 2020, with the only engine option being a 1.5-litre petrol-electric hybrid.

The Jazz is also available as a faux off-road version called the Jazz Crosstar, which sits a little bit higher and has big grey plastic trim pieces but is no better at crossing the Sahara than an ordinary Jazz.

As of August 2021, the Honda Jazz has an overall Expert Rating of 65%, which puts it right in the middle of a large and very competitive field of small cars. It has been praised for its practicality, with more room for both passengers and luggage than similarly sized rivals. The hybrid system also makes it economical for urban driving. The regular Jazz usually scores better than the Crosstar when tested separately.

Eco rating


Three-and-a-half stars

The Honda Jazz was awarded a 3.5-star eco rating from Green NCAP in July 2021. We are currently updating our Euro NCAP database, as the organisation changed its rating system and we need to change our database accordingly to be able to display the new scores.

Green NCAP said: “The Honda Jazz 1.5 i-MMD Hybrid represents the latest in petrol-hybrid and diesel technologies, and performs well. It achieves high scores for Energy Efficiency and also does very well for Clean Air. The Greenhouse Gas Index is the weakest of the three areas of assessment, but the Honda emerges with a solid 3½ star rating.”
