Mpg stands for miles per gallon, and is used to show how far your car is able to travel for every gallon (or 4.55 litres) of fuel it uses. The combined WLTP fuel economy figure provides a general overview of a car's fuel consumption over a variety of speeds and road types.
Insurance groups range from 1 to 50 and dictates the cost of the vehicles insurance. The higher the group, the higher the insurance will be for the vehicle.
BHP rates the engine performance of vehicles and stands for the brake horsepower.
CO2 is the amount of carbon dioxide emitted by the vehicle in grams per kilometre travelled, the lower the CO2 emissions the cleaner the vehicle is for the environment.
Number Of Seats
The total number of seats in the vehicle.
Road Tax is based upon the CO2 emissions of the vehicle and is split into 13 bands from A to M. The higher the letter the greater the cost of tax paid to drive the vehicle on public roads. In addition to the road tax detailed below, any vehicle that had a manufacturers retail price in excess of £40,000 when first sold, attracts a road tax supplement of an additional £320 per year. This is charged until the vehicle is 6 years old.
An astonishing number of Honda Jazz owners buy another and the MK4 model we're looking at here aims to keep them loyal. But the Japanese brand also needs to attract new converts to its clever little supermini, hence the decision to switch exclusively to full-Hybrid powerplant for this latest model. The good news is that despite all the new battery technology, the passenger compartment is still as flexible and practical as ever.
This Jazz supermini is the first car in Honda's current line-up to go hybrid-only - but it won't be the last. The brand's i-MMD full-hybrid system, first seen on the CR-V, has been more compactly packaged for this installation. And the designers have worked hard to ensure that it doesn't impinge upon the flexibility of the 'Magic seat' interior design package that has given previous generation versions of this model a supermini-sized car with much of the greater practicality of a larger family hatchback. Honda accepts that it might take this typically older clientele to get on board with the hybrid concept but expects that to happen pretty quickly. So what's on offer here? Let's find out.
The Jazz comes only with one engine - the brand's e:HEV powertrain. This is a full-Hybrid unit - so properly electrified like a Toyota Yaris Hybrid, rather than being only mildly electrified like the MHEV unit you can now have in a Ford Fiesta. The difference is important because a full-Hybrid can have far more reliance on battery power, especially in urban conditions. In this case, it's a 1.5-litre unit putting out 108bhp which uses two electric motors and a compact lithium-ion battery pack. The combustion engine sends drive through a clever fixed-gear auto transmission which Honda reckons is smoother and more efficient than the type of belt-driven CVT set-up the Jazz had before (and the one that Toyota uses in its hybrids). Basically the whole set-up is a downsized version of the 2.0-litre electrified engine used in the CR-V Hybrid and as there, you get selectable drive modes. Most of the time at the wheel of this Honda you'll be in 'Hybrid Drive', which combines the engine and the battery pack in the most efficient way possible while recovering electricity from deceleration and storing it for future use. 'EV Drive' forces the Jazz to run in electric-only mode (though it can only do that for very short distances). And the 'Engine Drive' setting combines the petrol engine and the electric motor output for maximum performance. In this mode, the e:HEV powertrain gives the Jazz a 0-62mph time of 9.4 seconds and a maximum speed of 108mph.
With this generation model, Honda has changed just about everything possible on the outside but it's a Jazz and you know what? It still looks like a Jazz. Slightly bulbous and unthreatening it remains but some of the detailing is now a bit sassier. At the front, the split A-pillars are designed to improve forward visibility and there's a pair of larger headlights and a chunkier bumper compared to the old model. It's still pretty compact though, measuring in at about 4-metres in length. At the rear, the previous model's vertically-stacked lights make way for more conventional horizontal units. It certainly still feels very spacious when you take a seat behind the wheel in the clean, minimalist cabin, with plenty of head and elbow room. A mini-MPV feel is much in evidence here - the high seating position, the panoramic windscreen and the A-pillar quarter lights, which give an exceptionally wide front three-quarter view. That's also aided by the slim, low-set instrument panel, which features a thin-rimmed two-spoke steering wheel borrowed from the smaller Honda e. Through this, you view a somewhat low-resolution 7-inch TFT screen offering a wide range of information that can initially look somewhat randomly displayed until you figure out what everything is and why it's there. Everything else you'll need to know can be found on the centre-stack display, which will be a 9-inch 'Honda CONNECT' touchscreen provided you've avoided entry-level trim. This includes 'Apple CarPlay'/'Android Auto' smartphone-mirroring and voice control via a 'Honda Personal Assistant', which offers the potential for instruction-based conversations. The seat design is much improved thanks to 30mm of extra padding. And there's plenty of space to store things thanks to neat touches like this double glovebox design. Perhaps the best news though, is that Honda's clever 'Magic Seat' design remains in the rear, giving owners the option of either folding the rear bench flat or flipping up the seat bases to create a taller load space. Boot capacity is 298-litres with the rear seat in place - or 1,203-litres with it folded.
Prices start from around £21,000 for the 'SE' variant. You'll need around £22,500 for plusher 'SR'-spec, around £24,000 for 'EX' trim and around £27,000 for the top 'EX Style' variant we tried. Across the Jazz range, standard features include adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist and automatic headlights, plus there's 'Apple CarPlay' and 'Android Auto' smartphone-mirroring. Black paint will be the default cost-free option while six other paint shades are also available. The Crosstar version is exclusively available in two-tone combinations with a gloss-black roof. Infotainment and connectivity benefit from a much improved voice command system, the Honda 'Personal Assistant', first seen on the little Honda e. This is basically a next-generation voice control system in that it can respond to multiple commands: for instance "OK Honda, find me an Indian restaurant with WiFi and free parking". The set-up would then display suitable options on the fascia's central touchscreen before plotting a route to the chosen destination. With this car, Honda is also offering the latest version of its Honda+ smartphone app, which includes remote vehicle locking and unlocking, plus 'intelligent geofencing', which alerts an owner if the vehicle breaches a pre-set 'geofence' zone. Plus there's the ability to send journey information from the app to the car's navigation system.
You'd hope that with all that hybrid technology on board, this Jazz would be a frugal thing and, by and large, it is. The standard model has claimed WLTP-rated combined cycle economy and emissions figures of 62.8mpg and 102g/km. For the top 'EX Style' variant, the figures are 61.4mpg and 105g/km. Many customers will want to budget ahead for scheduled maintenance with fixed-price scheme called 'Five'. It includes five years' worth of maintenance, an extended warranty for this period and roadside assistance breakdown cover should the unexpected happen. This can be transferred to a new owner if you sell the car before the service plan has expired. Residual values are expected to be significantly better than most other supermini segment rivals. And the three year 90,000 mile warranty is better than the package you get from many competitors too. In addition, surface corrosion is covered for three years, exhaust corrosion is covered for five years, chassis corrosion is covered for ten years and structural corrosion for twelve years.
