New Honda hatchback to start at £9990
1 September 2008

Honda has announced UK prices for its Jazz hatchback. Starting at £9990 for the entry-level 1.2 S, the Jazz will be pitched against rival superminis like the new Ford Fiesta and Renault Clio.

The 1.2 SE model, with air-con and larger 15-inch alloy wheels will cost from £10,990, but Honda is predicting that the majority of Jazz sales will be the entry-level 1.4-litre ES model that starts at £11,490.The 1.4 ES is just £180 dearer than the base 1.4-litre it replaces and comes generously equipped with a refrigerated glovebox, the double-trunk boot and Honda’s Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA).Meanwhile, the top-spec 1.4 EX also gets larger 16-inch alloys, automatic headlights and windscreen wipers, cruise control, climate control and a panoramic sunroof. All that kit doesn’t come cheap; the EX costs £12,790. Both 1.4 variants can be specified with Honda’s I-Shift automatic manual transmission, but it’ll add £800 to the price.Manual versions of the Honda Jazz go on sale in October this year, with the automatic I-Shift versions available in January 2009.

Honda Jazz

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

Looks like cracking value to me.

Like the last one looks like it will be hard to beat on price, whilst it looks quite expensive for a supermini, if you want a polo/fiesta/mazda2 etc with a 100hp engine, air con, alloys, and a few other extras they will cost more. Baring any disasters I'm buying one. Probably the 1.4SE or 1.4ES.

Why on the main news page does it say “New Honda hatchback to start at £11,490“.


Then, when you click on the link to the full article, it says “Honda has announced UK prices for its Jazz hatchback. Starting at £9990 for the entry-level 1.2 S, Honda has announced UK prices for its Jazz hatchback. Starting at £9990 for the entry-level 1.2 S”.


Autocar, PLEASE be consistent and get your facts correct! This will no doubt be a cracking buy though, and a great little car.

The 1.2's gone up a bit in price! You do get aircon though I suppose... would like to have seen the 1.2 at 9k and the 1.4 at 10.5k, as Honda don't do discounts like your french car makers!

Yes, but unlike French cars, you are paying for top notch build quality and reliability, and much better residuals. I know which I would have!
