The Honda Jazz is a super-practical supermini that’s a doddle to drive and own, but lacking in excitement
Still don't think it will sell with that 104g/ km co2 figure given nearly all the eco-diesel models in that class and the small family car class will undercut it at sub-99g/ km levels. 5g/ km may not sound like much but its the difference between free road tax/ congestion charge and having to pay, and it affects the company car tax band.
[quote Autocar]but that the Honda’s 104g/km figure is now on a par with that of the VW.[/quote]
No it isn't, the Polo Bluemotion 1.2 TDI achieves 91g/ km, and the 1.2 TDI SE gets 102g/ km.
If the price is right it is cheap for a small hatch with an auto box.
This "review" reads like an advertisment for Honda - it's full of superlative quotes and focuses only on the positives of the car (masking the negatives as "they recognized and fixed this or that"), and even heaping praise on the shitbox that is the Insight. Shame on you Autocar!
£13K? That's the Japanese domestic equivalent price?...it's not made clear in the article.

A what now? Where?
Like someone said already, this reads more like a Honda add than a test drive.
I normally get annoyed at the "Autocar is biased" diatribe you sometimes find on here and think it's mostly a lot of nonsense, but in this instance I agree that this article doesn't seem particularly balanced. And like others have said: 104 g/km is NOT equivalent to Volkswagen's 91 g/km Polo BlueMotion.
I do like the Jazz, though, and the mechanical changes are welcome. I even like the 'facelift'.

Surely the 'final piece of the puzzle' would be a diesel engine for the Jazz as every one of it's competitors in Europe has at least one in the range.

We are frequently reminded that the days of small diesel cars are coming to an end , as the cost of making diesels meet emissions regulations becomes unsustainable for cheap cars.
Japanese domestic equivalent price is ¥1.59 Million which is £12,289. Not bad for the 80+ mpg Jazz
Honda UK should Import the 6 Speed manual 1.5L i-VTEC 120 ps Honda Fit RS http://www.honda.co.jp/Fit/rs/. I guess it Wont happen because like the watered down civic type R Honda UK favor the swindon built cars.
