If you’ve ever owned a Honda Jazz or even been in a passenger in one, you’ll know how comfortable the car is – but don’t just take our word for it. The Jazz is a great all-rounder and has been popular since it was launched back in 2001. Now in its third generation, the Jazz was awarded Most Reliable Small Car in What Car? Awards 2017 and has just added another piece of silverware to its trophy cabinet.

In fact, Honda recently bagged three of the top awards in this year’s Honest John Awards – hosted by the popular motoring website – with the Jazz winning the gong for small hatchback of the year.

Even in larger classes, Honda came out on top with the Civic and HR-V winning the Small Family Car and Small Crossover of the Year accolades respectively.

Phil Webb, head of cars at Honda UK, said:

“This is the third year in a row that Honda has picked up trophies at the Honest John Awards and we are delighted that the Jazz, Civic and HR-V have triumphed this year; especially in an awards ceremony where it is simply down to the mass appeal of the cars and the number of people searching for them on the Honest John website.”

Held in London, the Honest John Awards are chosen by the website’s users – the reviews which create the most interest among users are the winners.
