Honda Jazz 1.2i

  • Honda Jazz 1.2i
  • The front threequarter view - a particularly fetching colour this one!
  • A little plain "two boxy" for me - but offers a huge interior.
  • The "Little Big car" - Thanks Honda Chiswick for the loan.
  • Even the boot is acceptably big for a small car.

WHAT IS IT? The Jazz is Honda's entry into the highly contested and ever popular "supermini" market. It is a five door hatchback, a very simple range to choose from as there are no variants; saloon, convertible etc, all Jazz models therefore share the same "two box" styling. For those of you to...

“Love me - Love my Jazz”

ProSmall exterior - Large interior - Economical

ConsEvery body wants to drive it.

Introduction Due to the 'credit crunch' and on-going media banter about carbon-footprints, fuel economy and costs. I thought I had better do my bit and replace my old and thirsty 1.6litre car with smaller engine vehicle and seeing as it might be the last car that I would purchase ( well they do...

Prospace, comfort, flexibility, fuel economy

Consabsolutely none for me

Having endured a horrifying M5 breakdown in my 5 year old Escort not long ago, I decided the time was right for a new car. And I wanted brand new, in the hope that I would be guaranteed a few years trouble-free motoring (and hopefully no sudden expenses) with a good warranty and some peace of...

ConsLow gearing means high revs at 70mph

The Honda Jazz manages the nearly impossible task of giving both my wife and I what we wanted from a car. Unless you're looking for a pure motorway cruiser or something sporty, I'd recommend it wholeheartedly. This review was written in 2004 - see the last paragraph for a 2007 update. It replaced...

Consexpensive for a small car

Having been a Big Car driver for many years, I decided a year ago this week to become more environmentally friendly. Looking for something a little less staid than the Saab, Merc and Rover 75 that had been my previous three cars, the five door Honda Jazz caught my attention by jumping up and down...

ConsFew will boast they have owned one.

It may not be the most aspirational car in the Honda fleet, but the humble Jazz 1.2 is one of the most practical small family cars I’ve driven, and having owned several, I can vouch that they’re almost maintenance free. A long time ago, Japanese vehicles were a byword for shoddy, poorly designed...

“A Jazzy little number”

published 01/09/2008

ProEconomical, fun to drive, good looking

ConsSlow to accelerate, stiff steering

The last time we went car shopping we decided to go for a car that had enough room for a buggy and car seat, was cheap to run and maintain, wouldn't depreciate too quickly and - most importanly - was good too look at and fun to drive! We took a Honda Jazz for a test drive and I immediately fell...

The subject of "Jan’s new car" is always a bit of a thorny one in our house. You see, Jan doesn’t really care that much about cars, or so she would have you believe. Trouble is, she does really but she hates making decisions so she makes me choose ‘cos then I can take the blame...

Thanks to the Jazz, Honda has proven itself more than capable of taking on Europe's best super-minis. Although only having one model in the range has limited buyer's choice. So as part of its recent mid-life revamp, the Jazz is given a new 1.2 litre engine to broaden its appeal. At £8,725, it...

I'm not going to regurgitate all the specs - you can read them at http://www.honda.co.uk Basically, we needed a family car that was flexible enough to handle our needs and be economical and fun in the process. We found that car in the Honda Jazz. Initial impressions are that it looks a lot like a...

I have had my Jazz for three months now, and am still thrilled to get in it and drive. When I changed my car I was looking for one that was small and easy to park, had to have five doors because I often take my grandchildren in it, was reliable but still fun. It also had to be automatic, as I do...

This is the car that i learned to drive in, and so, for me i will always have fond memories of it. It is a small but compact four door car that is quite spacious for four people although five can be squeezed in. It is a really fun car to drive because it is small and nippy!

I have just traded in my 2006 Honda Jazz (1.4) after only six weeks ownership. I wanted to love the Jazz, but I was sorely disappointed. I loved the look of the car and was looking forward to being able to use the good visibility and neat size to help me manoeuvre the car easily, and I wasn't let...
