New Honda Jazz 2021 review: it WILL surprise you!
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!

      @Sithu Kyaw ; push belt type CVT are inherently unreliable, can’t hold any decent amount of torque and are essentially scooter/snowmobile transmissions scaled up to fit passenger cars. They only gain less than a 5% increase in fuel economy over the more reliable transmissions, like the manual, the torque converter automatic, the DCT/DSG, or Toyota’s E-CVT do a search for JATCO CVT (most common in Nissan vehicles) and see how much they suck The transmission choice has minimal impact on fuel economy and a huge impact on drivability, reliability, and fun

      @MacTechG4 do you mean anything without a good fuel efficiency? Regular people most important aspect of the car is its economy

    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,,

    The car does not have a cvt gearbox if I am correct. It has two electric motors and a clutch. No belts, no gears.

    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.

    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.

  • India592

    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.

    I’m old (66) and have a 2006 Jazz as a second car. My other car is a 2019 BMW X1 but I find myself jumping in the Jazz over the Beemer. Despite the Honda’s age it has no rattles or squeaks and drives like a much younger car. Cheap to run and insure.... what’s not to like ?!

    Looks like a great little car. Shame on Honda for discontinuing it in the US. Yes, I know it has not been selling well here, but if you go and fix all the flaws of the previous version which they appear to have done, and then say, "oops, every other country gets it except you", it's kind of a nasty little cosmic joke.

    Actually i like how it looks. Hondas on general are ugly (crv 2017 is probably the nicest) but this Jazz is quite ok. It will outlive majority of other cars.

    I got orange Jazz from 2016 and I love it, also for the look. But I wouldn't buy it again because of the new front face. It's just ugly..

    I often borrow a 2005 Jazz for trips. It's not fun to drive and it's not properly maintained so it ocassionally has problems. However, it's the most car you can get for that kind of money. It can fit loads of stuff on the back. We use it for music gigs and we often carry 2 12' speakers, amp, mixer, guitar and violin, stands for everything, plus a weekend's worth of clothes for 4 people, and it can fit all that stuff easily. It's also comfortable for everyone inside. With any other brand, this amount of stuff would need a step-up into the 4.5 meters segment. As a driver, I'm not the happiest person in the world when climbing motorways with 4 people inside. You often need to stay on the slow lane and drop a gear or two. But it can do so much stuff to get you, your friends, their bikes, and 3 elephants from point A to point B.

    The gearbox in the hybrid should be cheaper to produce than a regular automatic as it mainly consists of an electric motor and generator. It might even be cheaper than a manual transmission. Nice video explaining the gearbox here:

    I honestly couldn't care what the car looks on the outside. I'm inside most of the time.... I have the 2007 jazz and it's never faulted me in 8 years. Reliable as ever. Fuel efficient and I've moved homes twice using it's flexible seats. Only complaint is the engine needs more grunt and i have the 1.5L

    These Carlow reviews get more & more annoying - facts not relentless quips PLEASE & what's with the ads from Google for this Jazz video? 15 ad breaks at two ads a time = 30 ads in less than 17 minutes............ content over promotional profit & business gone to dealers without Carlow as a result - hope the ad payments make up for the loss of car sale commission! As the T-Shirt says... "stick to the truth" - not the ads - subscribe? You must be joking, there are better reviews & better content out there without all the gimmicks & ads, just search for the car of choice & you'll find them in a few clicks.

    Why cars in UK don't have a spare wheel? In India, every car should and must gets one.

    • Devadutt Nair
      Devadutt Nair

      I think it's because of the emission standards. Adding a spare wheel will make the car slightly heavy which will require more fuel and increase emission so manufacturers opt out of spare wheel and meet the emission criteria.

    This new Jazz looks like the car the elderly people buy, boring besides previous model. Honda will not get a different buyers market with this model. A Big Mistake or a Educated Guess? It is pricey for a rather dull car, Technoligy maybe perfect, but for looks dont go to the Honda dealership
