New Honda Jazz 2021 review: it WILL surprise you!

8 096
Need help buying your next car? Click and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!
This is the Honda Jazz! It's an all-new model of Honda's small hatchback, and it's received upgrades across both the exterior and interior! Sure, the changes aren't HUGE, but as with any small car when a new model is launched, you can probably guess where most of the changes will be made. However, there's one change you may not have been expecting - the new Jazz is only available as a hybrid!
For us UK viewers, you’ll only have the one engine to choose from - a 1.5-litre petrol engine along with two electric motors, producing 109hp and a claimed economy of 61mpg! But with a rather large price of £19,000 for this rather small car, is the new Jazz the standout little legend of 2020? You’ll have to join Mat for his latest review and find out!

Suzuki Swift Sport, Honda jazz GD AND GF series (definitely not this ugly crap), Hyundai i30, Kia Cerato hatch, Kia Rio, MG3 Excite, Ford Focus, Ford Fiesta, Toyota Yaris, Toyota corolla are all the good better small cars, especially comparing to this piece of crap

After seeing this Honda Jazz I am afraid I like my current model much better.
Simon Alexander Critchley
A few too many old person gags,and sexual innuendos Mr Watson, If you like like it does that mean you are becoming an old person? Good review in any case.But I prefer the styling of the old model,preferably the RS with 6 speed manual,even if it was a bit unrefined.

Get fed up of his wee digs about it being old folk, pretty insulting actually. Maybe he can afford the best with his money but for ordinary folk a good solid reliable car with practicality like the Jazz is perfect. Grow up Mat. Went off him after this a bit, a wee joke is enough but there was something downright nasty to this

Your starting comment is the opposite of your review....this new version is even more granny focused and dull.... [btw I owned a Jazz so not hating for the sake of it]

i bought honda jazz hybrid 2017 on 2019, seems like nothing changes to engine on honda jazz hybrid 2021 except the cosmetic/design and prolly new features, that malaysian honda wont adapt bc it will be too expensive, so far im loving my honda jazz hybrid. i got everywhere with it. since it has a lot of space, i might go to camping and sleep in my car ehehe

I had one of these new Jazz's for the day recently with 5 miles on the clock when my 1.5T Civic was having a service. Its got a better entrainment system than the current civic and worked really well with apple car play and it drove so smooth and easy to drive. I would love some of the tech it has in my civic. Great little car.

Jazz is always copying Mercedes Benz A Class since the first model (Especially on 2008 Model) now A-Class become hatchback & sedan and Honda is confuse what car model to copy,,

I've got one of these. Mine never moos, but then I don't drive it like a hot rod. Also in a fairly even mix of urban, rural and motorway driving, I can get over 70 Imperial MPG (a US gallon is smaller). I've now done 1500 miles, and I really like this car. My only real criticisms.The boot is a bit on the tiny side, and I hate all this tech for lane assist etc being on by default. It would be great if you could set up driver profiles so that certain features are either enabled or disabled.

Too complicated for old farts

The most important question is have they fixed the speedo issue that causes all jazz to be driven at 20 mph below the speed limit? Or is a faulty speedo an option just for coffin dodgers?

Honda gives cheaper quality model in India. This is hopeless policy for Indian people.

besides older people, families with kids, especially young kids, the Jazz is without doubt the perfect car. Extremely reliable (Made in Japan, unlike others *Polo*), very efficient and one of the safest cars on the road with safety features not found on most other cars of this size. Besides when it comes to practicality the Jazz is by far the best in class, the magic seat system is very useful!

You can tell a good car and brand by the amount of old ones about, I mean do you see many 2006 and older fiats about?
I have a 03 jazz 1.4 and had it for 12 years, got it at 50000 miles,it's now got 158000 on the clock. Had to replace exhaust, battery and tyres and a wheel bearing for an MOT 3 years ago.
It's been a brilliant car and I would swear by the Honda brand - their reliability is top notch.
