On the road: Honda Jazz Hybrid

‘It comes as no to learn that the average age of a driver is 65. A Honda Hip-Hop surely appeal to a wider Photograph: Simon Stuart-Miller

In to break up the tedium of a recent walk with my girlfriend, I a game. It’s called Named After Music you simply have to name as as possible. So I began.


Volks Wagner.

Clever, but on two counts. A, there isn’t a car a Volks Wagner; and B, Wagner a music genre. Plus you a turn, my go, Honda Jazz.

Oi, you told me about that this is a stupid game, not playing any more. So that was the end of it, a 2-0 for me, and we walked on (and on) in silence.

seems a strange music for Honda to have named supermini after. To me it says old with beards. Or porn. of which is good.

It comes as no surprise to learn the average age of a Jazz driver is 65. A Hip-Hop would surely to a wider market. Or a Honda if it’s the youth they’re but that’s probably going too far in the direction

It doesn’t deserve its moniker, though. The Jazz is an car, bright and sunny in temperament and – with the panoramic sun I’ve got on this one – literally. quality and handling aren’t but load space and versatility

We drove to the garden centre we’re 65 in spirit) and, by the back seats, we managed to get quite big plants in, upright. now a greenhouse on wheels. Perfect for if you’re towards the Jazz end of the or industrial-strength skunk if you see the car as more of a Dub Reggae.

That’s it, it’s because by carrying around a car of plants – which if I remember biology produce oxygen and use up CO2 – you can possibly bring down the by 5g to get it under the 100g/km free tax threshold. (I’m not sure how the conversation at the post office go, though.) 104g/km isn’t bad – but not fantastic for a hybrid. Likewise consumption of 62.8mpg. Compare with a Toyota Auris which goes 12 miles on a gallon. Plus there are of non-hybrid eco diesels that less than 100g/km of dioxide. Cheaper non-hybrid eco

And that’s still the problem hybrids – they’re too expensive. one may be the cheapest hybrid family but it’s still around more than a standard Jazz. It makes sense for the but not for the pocket; 1,500 quid is a lot to pay for a easier conscience, and some that glow on the dashboard you drive economically. Leaves I’m afraid, my girlfriend has noticed. Honda Greensleeves, she

No, on counts A and B, plus several She just doesn’t get it.
