Honda Jazz hatchback - Practicality & boot space

A tall roofline and boxy proportions mean there's lots of room for passengers

Practicality & boot space Rating

4.0 out of 5

The Honda Jazz has always blurred boundaries, being the first supermini with an MPV-like design that really promoted interior space. It's a trait that's become key to the Jazz's success, and the latest model sticks with it, with a tall roofline, short bonnet and vertical boot.

Clever thinking is abundant, from the A-pillars that have been halved in thickness to reduce dangerous blind spots, to the smartphone pockets found behind the front seats for those sitting in the back.

Honda Jazz interior space & storage

Four six-foot tall adults can sit comfortably inside the Jazz, which boasts class-leading rear legroom according to Honda. Headroom is generous too, and the Jazz still features its famous ‘Magic Seats’, where the bases flip-up like cinema seats, providing a tall and uninterrupted loading space behind the front seats. This can be handy for items like small bicycles, potted plants and pet carriers.

Boot space

The boot measures a decent 304 litres, expanding to 1,205 litres if you fold down the back seats. It's more than a Fiesta or Yaris offers, but a Renault Clio has a bigger boot, which may be surprising given the Jazz's shape.

Towing

We don't have official towing figures for the Jazz but we suspect it won't be the most suitable candidate for towing a trailer because of its hybrid powertrain.
