The Jazz is great value if you’re after a practical city car. It seats four adults in comfort and swallows luggage, courtesy of its box-shaped body and flip-folding “Magic Seats”. It has a good infotainment interface, surprising turn of speed and frugal 1.5-litre engine. Pick of the bunch is the base-spec VTi auto at $16,990.
Pros: Roomy, versatile cabin; polished interior; five-year warranty.
Cons: Ordinary handling; busy styling; no auto braking.
