This is the all-new Honda Jazz which will be reaching the UK from September with prices starting at £13,495.
The popular subcompact hatchback retains its distinctive shape but gains a new face and contemporary styling.
The new Honda Jazz is slightly longer than the model it replaces thanks to a new platform and the dimensions inside are also bigger too.
For instance, despite its small size, the boot space measures 354litres and with the rear seats folded flat, that increases to a useful a 97litres.
Indeed, the boot space and passenger space are unrivalled in the segment.
Equipment for the Honda Jazz
There’s also a lot of equipment for the Honda Jazz base models including cruise control, air conditioning and dusk sensing automatic lights.
All models come with the firm’s City Brake Active which helps the driver to avoid low speed accidents.
Other models in the line-up come with parking sensors, 15 inch alloy wheels and the firm’s driver assistance safety pack which has five extra safety aids.
Top of the range models come with smart start and entry, six speaker audio system and automatic climate control.
Most models also come with an in-car infotainment system called Honda Connect which features a 7-inch touchscreen and an Android-based system to enable entertainment plane.

The entertainment system comes with a number of pre-installed apps but others are also available to download to enable real-time traffic information, web browsing, news and weather as well as Internet music and social media.
Honda have also opted to include its new 1.3 litre i-VTEC petrol unit for the Jazz which is highly efficient and responsive and will deliver 102PS.
Even though the engine is slightly smaller than the unit it replaces, there’s just as much power and economy is slightly better than Honda’s 1.2 litre unit.
In the CVT transmission version, the Honda Jazz should return around 61 mpg while emitting 106g of emissions.
There’s no doubt that the Honda Jazz has been a huge success for the carmaker since its launch in 2001 – the firm has shifted 5 million units around the world and it’s now a ‘global car’ so the versions available here are very similar to those found in other countries too.
