Should you buy a used Honda Jazz Mk3?

If you want a small, practical and – above all else – reliable used car, and don’t mind paying a little more than average for the experience, the Honda Jazz Mk3 is absolutely the place to start. The interior may not be the last word in style and some elements may already be starting to feel outdated, but no rival can match it for dependability or flexibility.

The Magic Seats are genius, the engines are great (unless you want to go fast), and the build quality is almost above reproach if you can overlook the use of some hard and shiny plastics. While things do go wrong, they only do so very occasionally and there are no disasters in waiting lurking to catch out the unsuspecting buyer.

The image may be a little on the older side because of all of the above, and ultimately many families may be better served by a larger vehicle. But if you want a no-nonsense runabout that’s unlikely to let you down there isn’t a better contemporary used car for sale.
