What is it?
The Honda Jazz has always been something of a Tardis in the supermini market. Its exterior size is pretty standard for the class, yet opening the door reveals a frankly cavernous interior.
It’s this unrivalled level of practicality in the supermini segment that has enabled Honda to sell more than seven million examples of the Jazz since the model was first launched back in 2001.
This emphasis on spaciousness has been carried over with this, the facelifted, 2018 model year variant.
In the past, the Jazz has stereotypically been the reserve of, erm, more mature drivers, but Honda has treated this updated version to a range of sporty exterior tweaks in what we can only imagine is an attempt to make it more appealing to the 'yoof'.
That means gloss-black 16in alloys and contrast stitching in the cabin, among other changes. The most notable update, though, is the availability of a 1.5-litre i-VTEC petrol engine, which was under the bonnet of the car we sampled.
