Jazz is the Which? Car best used supermini
The popular Honda Jazz has another accolade to add to its growing trophy cabinet - it has been named best used supermini by consumer champions Which? Car.
The annual Which? Car survey is the largest of its kind and results are based on reliability and owner satisfaction, plus a high score in the Which? Car model road test.
Experts praised the Jazz’s class-leading space and versatility, bullet-proof reliability, strong resale values, and the fact it is easy and safe to drive. The results also took into account positive feedback from Jazz owners.
Richard Headland, editor of Which? Car, commented: “Buyers looking for a nearly new supermini should make a beeline for the Jazz. Owners love its blend of class-leading interior space, smart looks and excellent reliability.
“It is a sought-after second-hand, so not the cheapest choice, but you'll also find buyers willing to pay good money when you come to sell it later.”
This result follows hot on the heels of the Jazz success in the 2012 JD Power owner satisfaction survey where it remained the supermini category leader for an impressive ninth year running.
It has also reinforced Honda’s efforts to excel in customer satisfaction. The 2012 Warranty Direct study into the most dependable family-sized cars saw Honda dominate the top three with the Civic and Accord awarded second and third places respectively.
The Jazz is available with two i-VTEC petrol engines – 1.2 and 1.4 litre and all models qualify for Band B tax of €225 per annum. There are six models in the range with different levels of standard specifications and the 1.4 model is also available in CVT automatic.
New car prices start from €16.195 ex-works for the entry level 1.2 litre SE to €20,470 ex-works for the top of the range 1.4 litre i-TEC EX CVT.
