Honda Jazz Wins Best Small Hatchback
The Honda Jazz has picked up the Best Small Hatchback at the 2016 Telegraph Cars Awards.
Reflecting the best new models on sale today across a broad range of categories, the winners have been selected by the Telegraph's expert road test team, who over the last 12 months have put hundreds of cars through a rigorous review process including everything from early first drives to a detailed 10-point test and living with the cars on a long-term test basis.
With the third generation launched last year, the latest incarnation of the Jazz builds on the strong reputation of its highly successful predecessors. The global car, also known as the 'Fit' in some markets, has sold over 5 million units worldwide since the first generation model was introduced in 2001 and it is currently being manufactured in seven countries.
What the judges said: "Many have tried to copy the Jazz's formula for success, but nothing does it quite so well. For a small car interior space is impressive, and Honda's reliability record is superb."
Phil Webb, Head of Cars at Honda UK, commented: "Being recognised by one of the foremost motoring teams at one of our national newspapers is a fantastic accolade for both the brand and the Jazz. The Jazz is a very important model for us, with an extremely loyal following, so we look forward to seeing this success continue."
