Honda Jazz wins the ‘Small Car of the Year’ at the What Car? Car of the Year Awards 2022

Honda Jazz wins the ‘Small Car of the Year’ at the What Car? Car of the Year Awards 2022

The Honda Jazz Hybrid continues to prove its credentials, in one of the most sought-after accolades in the automotive industry, winning the title of ‘Small Car of the Year’ at the What Car? Car of the Year Awards.

To be eligible for a What Car? Award, a car has to have been tested back-to-back with its rivals, both on UK roads and at What Car?’s dedicated test track.

Beating off competition from some big names, the Honda Jazz is a small car that’s big on features, including anti-fatigue seats, a large carrying capacity of up to 1205 litres with ‘magic seats’, and an infotainment system with seamless smartphone integration via both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Steve Huntingford, What Car? editor commented: “The Honda Jazz is a small car that feels like a big one, not only because of the sheer amount of space you get, but also because of the comfort and refinement that it offers. The interior is incredibly thoughtfully designed, too, with lots of clever touches to improve practicality. Plus, the Jazz is an easier car to see out of than many rivals, and its hybrid technology allows it to sip fuel, particularly around town.”

Rebecca Adamson, Head of Automobile at Honda UK, commented:  “To begin 2022 with an award win is a great achievement for the Honda Jazz and being recognised by the UK’s biggest car-buying brand is a fantastic badge of honour. The Honda Jazz is very important to us and our top-selling model -  I very much look forward to seeing its success continue”.

The Jazz’s winning combination of comfort, convenience and connectivity is coupled with sophisticated technologies such as Honda’s unique three mode e:HEV powertrain that delivers a full hybrid experience with efficient and responsive performance. Comprising two electric motors, a 1.5-litre Atkinson-cycle petrol engine and an innovative fixed-gear transmission, the Jazz Hybrid plays a key role in Honda’s commitment to achieving 100% electrification of its mainstream model line-up in 2022.

The Honda Jazz is available from £19,910* OTR (inc. VAT) for the 1.5 i-MMD Hybrid SE Grade. T&Cs Apply.
