In tough times like this, all one will ever ask for in a car is practicality, excellent fuel economy and a car that's fuss-free. Is the new Honda Jazz all that?

Introduction

Earlier this year, we did a comparison test between three highly-popular compact hatches – the new Chevrolet Aveo5, updated Suzuki Swift and multi-award winning Mazda 2. And the results that followed at the end of it all were rather surprising. The Aveo5 was out on its own and got our thumbs up all thanks to its good value for money, practicality and best of all, spaciousness. Between the Swift and 2, however, it was a tough call. They both are so good in that particular area of price, spaciousness, practicality and build quality. We gave it to the Swift though – as it is priced cheaper than the 2, but comes with significantly better build quality and more goodies.

But what if the Honda Jazz was put into the equation? Could it have been the one to be our overall winner? We didn’t include the Jazz back then as we manage to, beforehand, gather insider news of a new model that is coming.

So, if we had included this new Jazz, could it clinch the “overall winner” title? Collectively, we still think it will be a tough fight.

Nevertheless, read on to find out what The Ed, Jarvis and Jeremy each has to say about the Honda Jazz 1.5 Skyroof version – top of the range in the model line-up – after a whole week with the car…

Good response and support from Angie at One Shift when I wanted to sell off my old Camry which was due to be scrapped in early February. Would recommend this platform for those wanting to buy or sell their cars.
