The is one of the most sensibly packaged on the road. The secret lies in its flat floor at the back, which allows the rear seats to be configured in all manner of ways. This feature is makes the Jazz stand out against the rest of the superminis on offer.

With a 1.5-litre engine, the Jazz is perfectly capable to mix with larger traffic out on the open road although it fares better in busy traffic where the wraparound windscreen offers great visibility ahead. It’s very nimble darting through traffic and small enough to squeeze into even the tightest of parking bays.

To increase the driving thrills around town you can use the steering wheel-mounted paddleshifts to change between ratios on the five-speed automatic gearbox – it’s the only car of its size to offer such a big-car feature. Unlike many other small cars in the market, the Jazz feels very perky when driving around town as the gearbox has been designed to give plenty of power from the engine at low speeds – perfect for in-town manoeuvres.

The latest model was introduced into the market in 2009 and is a development of the first edition of the Jazz, which became a worldwide hit finding more than two million buyers since its launch in 2001. Though looking very similar, the 2010 model is longer and wider than the previous version – giving more interior space and improved road holding. And if you find the Jazz a little to sensible in its styling, the local dealer can supply more aggressive bumpers to give your Jazz a little bit of an edge.
