Used Honda Jazz for sale
The Honda Jazz is a small hatchback that offers class-leading levels of versatility and practicality as well as renown reliability, making it an ideal alternative to the larger Honda Civic hatchback and HR-V small SUV.
Now in its fourth generation, the latest Jazz was released in 2020 and continues to be a popular choice for many thanks to a range of great features, such as:
- A user-friendly infotainment system
- An efficient hybrid powertrain on offer
- Two bodystyles to choose from
- A well-built interior
- Low running costs
Discover the benefits of the Honda Jazz in more detail below.
Engines and Driving Experience
If you opt for the latest generation, you'll have a simple choice of engines as only one is available. The 1.5-litre hybrid system produces a total of 97bhp, allowing the car to go from 0 to 62mph in 9.4 seconds in its standard hatchback form or 9.9 seconds in the crossover-inspired Crosstar model.
The intelligent bit about the hybrid system is that it will automatically switch between three driving modes to maximise efficiency and enhance your driving experience. This allows the Jazz to achieve up to 62.8mpg combined whilst you enjoy the refined ride.
However, if you're not quite convinced by hybrid power and want something more traditional, previous generations offer an economic 1.3-litre or 1.5-litre petrol VTEC engine that can achieve up to 56.5 and 52.3mpg combined respectively.
Practicality and Running Costs
Very few of the Jazz's rivals can match its versatility inside. Boot space in its standard setup comes in at 304 litres (298 litres with the Crosstar), but folding down the 60/40 split-folding rear seats increases overall capacity to an impressive 1,205 litres of space. Another handy feature is the much-loved 'Magic Seats', allowing you to fold the bases up like football stadium seats to make loading larger items easier.
Head and legroom is very generous, leaving taller occupants with little to complain about no matter where they're sat in the cabin. 5 doors as standard also allow for the easy installation of car seats onto the ISOFIX mounting points.
Getting insured to drive the Honda Jazz is fairly inexpensive, ranging from group 13 to 19 (out of 50). All Evans Halshaw dealerships are also well-equipped to deal with any servicing or maintenance requirements.
Interior, Technology and Safety
The interior is built to a high standard and features a well laid out dashboard that possesses physical buttons and knobs to control its various functions. The driver can also control different features through the minimalistic two-spoke steering wheel, allowing for maximum focus to be kept on the road.
Adaptive cruise control, Bluetooth connectivity and a 5-inch infotainment system come on entry-level models, but opting for a higher specification may see you receive extra benefits such as a larger 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system, Apple CarPlay and a heated steering wheel.
Euro NCAP awarded the Honda Jazz with the full five-star safety rating when it underwent their rigorous testing procedure thanks to a range of available safety technology, such as:
- A rear view camera
- Parking sensors
- Lane departure warning
- Hill start assist
- Forward collision warning
Is the Honda Jazz right for me?
If you're after one of the most practical and versatile small cars the used market has to offer, then the Honda Jazz is right for you. Low running costs and high levels of technology also help to make it a great used buy.
Alternatives such as the Ford Fiesta and Vauxhall Corsa are also good value for money and offer a decent amount of room. If you value style over practicality, the SEAT Ibiza and Volkswagen Polo are good options.
