Hot Car Deals – Honda JazzBig savings on the popular supermini

IMPORTANT: Read the information at the bottom of this page before going ahead with any car purchase.
The latest Honda Jazz is a miracle of packaging, offering lots of interior space and flexibility. It's a decent drive and the introduction of the 1.3-litre IMA engine to the range last year ensured Honda had the first hybrid supermini on the market.
The trouble with the Jazz is that it's a relatively expensive car to buy new. So here's the good news: we've found a cracking deal on the Jazz Hybrid supermini to save you over £1,500. We've also found good savings on a top-end petrol model with the 1.4-litre engine - our pick over the smaller-capacity 1.2-litre.
Honda Jazz Hybrid for £15,200
The Jazz Hybrid comes with two powerplants: a 1.3-litre 88bhp VTEC petrol engine and a 14bhp electric motor, linked to Honda's tried-and-tested CVT automatic gearbox.
Practicality is the Honda Jazz's middle name, although it's worth bearing in mind that the Hybrid version loses around 100 litres of bootspace due to its batteries sitting under the boot floor. Still, a total capacity of 260 litres isn't bad by supermini standards.
We'd opt for the HS spec level - it's normally only £500 more than the entry-level HE spec but through Discounted-new-cars you can get it for just £15,251 - that's £1,559 off the list price.
£1,270 off petrol Honda Jazz
Although it averaged a modest 42.8mpg in our fuel economy test (some 18mpg worse than the Hybrid), the 1.4-litre petrol Jazz continues to be a favourite with buyers. It feels smooth and refined and offers better performance - accelerating from 37-62mph in a sprightly 6.9 seconds.
We've found a tempting deal on the 1.4 EX through Justclick4cars, whose £1,270 discount means you'll only pay £14,725.

Hot Deal hunters please note:
- The car brokers and deals featured are not vetted, endorsed or recommended by Which?. Always check the specifics of the deal so you know exactly what you are getting and who is supplying the car. Make sure all aspects of the deal are confirmed in writing before committing to buy.
- Not all brokers deal in UK-sourced vehicles, and this may have an impact on standard equipment and warranty levels.
- The term ‘pre-reg’ or ‘pre-registered’ refers to vehicles that are brand new but already registered with the DVLA. This means that you will appear as the second owner on the V5 registration document.
- Beware of unscrupulous brokers who tell you they will have to retain the V5 registration document for a period of time after your purchase of the car. Vehicles sold this way may be cheap, but there are legal implications, including the risk that you the buyer could be committing a criminal offence when you drive the car, so they should be avoided.
