Honda’s Jazz is 100 per cent engineered for pensioners — it makes life simple – Bukipress

I’M not being mean here – I’m being kind.

I’ve printed this review in big letters so older readers don’t have to guess every other world.

The Honda Jazz makes life simple for pensioners

Well done. You spotted it. That’s a typo.

I’m still the fresh side of 50 and cooking instructions in low light might as well be in Russian.

So hopefully this easy read is doing you a favour.

And to be honest, that is exactly what Honda does so brilliantly with the Jazz — it makes life simple.

Chunky dials and super-thin windscreen pillars give great visibility

This is a car that is 100 per cent designed and engineered for pensioners. And why not?

Honda makes the Civic Type R for space cadets, the CR-V for families and the Jazz for people who have done all that and now want some-thing small, safe, dependable and, above all, affordable.

With Honda you’re covered from hip-hop to hip op. Rave to grave.

Now let’s start by having a poke inside this clever little Jazz. Nice big speedo. Chunky dials. Comfy seats. And those super-thin windscreen pillars give you more visibility than a greenhouse.

Honda’s trademark Magic Seats turn the Jazz into a mini Tardis

Then, in the back, the trademark Magic Seats. Which fold up like a cinema seat and also lie flat, allowing Geoffrey to carry home the pot plant he’s just bought from the garden centre — or nip to the tip with his recycling.

In other words, those rear seats turn the Jazz into a mini Tardis. I can’t believe other manufacturers haven’t copied Honda here. Also worth noting is that every new Jazz is a mild hybrid.

So it does good numbers in terms of fuel economy and CO² and there’s no faffing about with a plug.

Even better, it is super smooth, with one forward gear, and is impossible to stall. 

The Jazz also comes in a Crosstar version (blue) that rides a little higher

Around town at low speed, it spends most of its time in EV mode.


Other observations. Nice light steering. Doddle to park. Easy 9in touchscreen has all the connectivity you need. But pay a little extra for the heated seats and heated steering wheel. You deserve it.

If you think the regular Jazz needs, er, jazzing up a bit there’s also a rufty-tufty Crosstar version that rides a little higher and has blobs of plastic and roof rails but otherwise is the same.

In summary, then. Well thought out. Perfectly executed. Sensible car at a sensible price. It’s a B-I-G yes from me.
