Honda Jazz 2014 - 2015
The Honda Jazz 2014 - 2015, also known as the Fit, is a blend of versatility, economy, and fun. The 2015 model is slightly bigger, and has a bigger engine and slightly more horsepower, than last year’s models. For such a small car the Jazz has plenty of cargo capacity, and all but the largest passenger will find the interior spacious enough to ride comfortably. The Jazz’s interior layout might compete with larger Multi-Purpose Vehicles for practicality and versatility.
Brand New For 2015
The Honda Jazz 2014 - 2015 redesign brings a whole new platform, engine, and transmission for this best seller. By pushing the wheels even further towards the corners of the car, and lowering the amount of glass in the design overall, the Jazz looks bigger even though it’s almost two inches shorter than last year’s model. The extra steel is part of Honda’s plan to make the Jazz perform better in a crash, especially offset-frontal crashes which were a sore point in the past.
Big Changes Inside
The increase in wheelbase doesn’t just affect the look of the exterior. Honda was able to move the rear seat over four inches back because of the bigger wheelbase and improvements in the rear suspension. Rear seat passengers now have as much legroom as Honda’s much larger Accord sedan.
Some cargo space is lost by the increase in seating area, but the versatile folding seat arrangements make it easy to regain room for your things if you’re not carrying a full load of passengers. It holds 17 cubic feet of stuff, down from 21.

It Rides Like A Compact
The changes to the rear suspension and the small size of the Jazz overall makes it shudder a bit when it hits a pothole, but in general it delivers a smooth ride on the highway. Even though the amount of glass has been reduced considerably over structural considerations, there’s still a better view than in most super-minis because the driver sits fairly high for such a small car.
Lots of headroom for all passengers because of the high roofline, and even the rear seats recline, which is somewhat unusual. It’s performed well in European crash tests, and comes with airbags.
There’s a hybrid version available with a Lithium Ion battery that will stretch gas mileage to 63 MPG.
