The Honda Jazz hybrid will sell on its fuel economy and CO2 emissions figures alone: compared to conventionally powered rivals, the latest model is very competitive indeed in this department.

Honda Jazz hybrid MPG & CO2 emissions

In isolation, the Jazz is impressive. Average fuel economy of up to almost 63mpg is claimed, along with CO2 emissions as low as 102g/km. On our test drive – conducted on a mix of motorways, A-roads and city streets – the Honda consistently displayed figures of over 70mpg. That’s enough to blow just about every conventionally powered supermini into the weeds – only (increasingly rare) diesel models are likely to come close.

If you plan to use the Jazz primarily in an urban setting, it’s more likely that the car’s electric motors will be able to cut in, thereby increasing that figure. Honda quotes figures as high as nearly 81mpg, which is very encouraging. The Jazz misses out on London Congestion Charge exemption by some margin, but its emissions are low in the grander scheme of things: cheap first-year road tax and reasonable company-car Benefit-in-Kind rates will help its case against purely combustion-engined rivals, too.
