Practicality & boot space Rating

4.0 out of 5

The Honda Jazz has always been about practicality and this model is no different. Versatile seating, loads of interior space and a big boot mean it's still one of the best hatchbacks for those who prioritise carrying capacity.

Honda Jazz interior space & storage

There's loads of adjustment in the driver's seat and steering wheel, so you can quickly get into a comfortable position. There are also plenty of storage spaces, with two large cup-holders in front of the gearlever and another by the steering wheel being the most obvious. The door bins are a little small, but the glovebox is a good size and there's a small lidded bin behind the handbrake.

For back-seat passengers, the Jazz offers absolutely loads of head and legroom. In fact, Honda claims there's enough rear legroom to rival a typical luxury saloon.

The Honda Jazz's best feature is its versatile 'Magic Seats'. You can fold them completely flat for maximum luggage space or flip their bases up (like a cinema seat) to store tall items in the rear footwells.

Boot space

Compared to hatchbacks, the Jazz has 354 litres, beating the Ford Fiesta by 62 litres and the new Peugeot 208 by 43 litres. When you fold all the rear seats completely flat, the Jazz's boot volume jumps to 1,314 litres.

The boot lip is low and the opening is nice and square, so you shouldn't have any problems lifting and placing awkwardly shaped or heavy items inside. You also get a couple of anchor points and a luggage net so loose bits and pieces don't roll around inside.
