New Honda Jazz variant is cheaper to tax than the standard car thanks to the addition of stop-start
14 June 2012

Honda has added the Honda Jazz 1.2 SE ‘Idle Stop’ variant to its Jazz line up, which sees the model drop one road tax band to the £30 per year tax band C (saving new owners £70). 

The new car achieves a claimed 54.3mpg and 120g/km CO2, which is a 3g/km improvement over the standard 1.2-litre model without stop-start technology. 

Standard features of the most efficient Jazz include automatic climate control and body coloured door handles and mirrors.

The Honda Jazz 1.2 SE adds a £1265 premium over the entry-level 1.2 S, with prices starting from £12,870. 

By contrast, the five-door Vauxhall Corsa S 1.0 ecoFLEX (55.4mpg, 120g/km CO2) is £820 cheaper at £12,050. 


Our Verdict

Honda Jazz

The Honda Jazz is a super-practical supermini that’s a doddle to drive and own, but lacking in excitement

I hope Honda's upcoming 1.6 turbodiesel unit finds its way into the Jazz. That would make for a cracking little motor.
