MPG, running costs & CO2 Rating

3.0 out of 5

The Honda Jazz is impressively economical, but it's not quite good enough to compete with the most efficient diesel versions of the Peugeot 208 or Volkswagen Polo. Road tax and insurance costs are both reasonable, though.

Honda Jazz MPG & CO2

Even though there is now only one engine available, the Honda Jazz's fuel economy changes depending on which gearbox you choose. It's also affected by which specification you go for due to the additional weight of the extra technology in the more expensive SE model.

The 1.3-litre petrol engine is at its most efficient when connected to the CVT automatic gearbox in entry-level S trim. Under the latest WLTP testing procedure, the Jazz can return up to 60.1mpg with the automatic gearbox and its CO2 emissions of 106g/km mean a lower Benefit-in-Kind (BiK) band for company-car drivers.

Insurance

With just one engine available, most versions of the Jazz find themselves in insurance group 13, which is fairly low compared with rivals.

Warranty

Honda provides a three-year/90,000-mile warranty on all its new cars. The brand also offers to extend that for a fourth or fifth year, but this costs extra.

Servicing

Honda publishes fixed pricing for servicing on its website. For the Jazz, the first year's service costs around £250 and the second will set you back just over £300. Honda also offers a five-year service plan for around £900.
