Updated September 11, 2013
Honda – a name synonymous with finely engineered Oriental vehicle manufacturer that has always come up with some superbly engineered cars over the decades. Honda Jazz, with its incredibly clever folding rear seats and spacious cabin brings to you to offer a kind of functionality that is found in conventional small cars. Read the car review in details here.
Design: The name itself will lift your spirits up if you have got the blues and even otherwise. Honda Jazz with swept back headlights, discreet bonnet and a slim grille gives it that typical Honda look. The sharp styling coupled with subtle curves allows it to glide through. The headlights blend nicely along with the lines of the sloping bonnet Measures 3.8 meters long but the overall design and the overall look of the car is sure to make heads turn. It maybe a small car but it surely carries itself with élan.
Performance: Honda Jazz is that perfect car for you if you want to take it out on a spin on the open road or through bust streets. The two petrol engines a 89bhp 1.2 and one 99bhp 1.3 plus a hybrid. The manual gearbox is has a great shift. The 94lb ft hits 62mph in less than 12 seconds to a top end of 112mph. The steering is easy for parking but slow witted on winding routes. Also the faster you go, the wind noise and the road noise somehow make their way in the cabin and it totally ruins the quite ride.
Styling and Interiors: The car may look small but pretty spacious inside. The swivels seats allow the passengers to get in and out easily, even from a wheelchair. The rear seat allows the cargo system to be expanded with a flat floor. The car fits up to 5 people comfortably. You get boldly colored door mirrors. The boot is however the masterpiece – it has a multi functional parcel shelf that can be stashed vertically or horizontally in four different ways. The Interiors of the Jazz is solid built and the driver’s seat is mounted a little high. A well thought out dash board design and the audio controls are easy to use. Bluetooth and cruise control are standard.
Reliability and safety: In a 2011 survey, the Honda Jazz came in 12th in terms of safety and reliability. It scored 5 stars in Euro NCAP crash tests. Every model of the Jazz series comes with 6 airbags and active anti-whiplash head restrains along with a Vehicle Stability Assist System.
The improved styling has resulted in both front and rear bumpers to be redesigned, that gives it the sporty look. The suspension, ride and the handling also has been improved. The air-vents have chrome rings; leather upholstery is available for instruments and climate controls. The comfortable seating allows long distance journeys.
