For a while now, Honda has insisted on trying to conquer the small-segment with a small MPV while everyone else builds hatchbacks. So, they introduced the new Jazz. A small MPV that has been on the market since 2000 and it is now on its 4th generation. The draw of the Honda Jazz city car has always been its ability to swallow luggage, courtesy of its box-shaped body and clever flip-folding seats, and the 2020 version is no different.
In fact, this latest version is no refresh; from the ground up it’s all-new, with a new chassis using Honda’s Global Compact Platform and new front suspension that’s claimed to improve both ride and refinement. This 5-door hatchback is also powered by a new 2-motor petrol-hybrid powertrain.
The Jazz’s talents are centred around its cavernous interior, which is far more spacious and practical than those offered by the Ford Fiesta, Volkswagen Polo, or Seat Ibiza. In addition, in the world of small cars, there is nothing more reliable than the Honda Jazz.
“The all-new Jazz range has arrived with an advanced e:HEV hybrid engine and dynamic, modern looks. Spacious on the inside and compact on the outside, it really is the complete, clever car. You can choose between the sophisticated and stylish Jazz hatchback or the new, active lifestyle Jazz Crosstar with its SUV-influenced design and a selection of new body colours including 2-tone options.”
