The most efficient Honda Jazz is the Elegance trim, which gets 62.8mpg on the WLTP combined cycle. Advance and Advance Sport spec models achieve 61.4mpg, while the heavier Crosstar Advance model will return up to 58.9mpg.

We tested an earlier 106bhp version of the Jazz in now-superseded Sport trim as part of our twin test against the Toyota Yaris Cross, and found the Honda achieved an excellent 58.5mpg, which was significantly higher than the 48.7mpg we got from the Toyota Yaris Cross. Keep to lower speeds around town, and we reckon you could easily blow past the 60mpg mark in the Jazz.

The jacked-up Jazz Crosstar also proved to be very efficient when we tested it, returning 55.4mpg when we pitted it against the Dacia Sandero Stepway. That rival managed 44.3mpg in the same conditions.

The hybrid tech also ensures low emissions, with CO2 levels ranging from 102g/km to 108g/km, making the Jazz a more affordable company car choice than a traditional petrol supermini. The Toyota Yaris, with its lower 92g/km figure, is several Benefit-in-Kind (BiK) tax bands lower than the Jazz, though.

Insurance groups

Insurance premiums will potentially be higher than those of its supermini rivals. The Jazz range falls into either groups 21 or 22 (with the Advance Sport and Crosstar Advance in group 22), while for comparison, the recently facelifted 143bhp Renault Clio E-Tech will be cheaper to insure because it sits in group 15.

Depreciation

Residual values for the Honda Jazz are relatively strong, the car retaining between 51 and 53 per cent over a three-year/36,000-mile ownership period, according to our expert data. That’s on par with the Renault Clio, but if you want a supermini that holds on to its value even better, go for the Audi A1 – in particular, the 30 TFSI S Line, which maintains 60 per cent of its value.
