Honda Jazz wins Sunday Independent Car of the Year 2016
The all-new Honda Jazz has been named the Sunday Independent Car of the Year 2016.
Honda’s popular supermini beat tough competition from the many new cars launched throughout the past year in Ireland to take the award. The Sunday Independent Motoring editorial team judged the awards, featuring some of the most well-known motoring journalists in the country.
The Honda Jazz was a popular choice with the judges for the space, reliability, value and class-leading equipment which it offers.
The "Tardis-like" interior came in for particular praise, with the innovative design of the Jazz meaning it offers the space and flexibility of a much larger car within a very compact package.
The long-running virtues of all Honda cars are present in the new Jazz, and so the quality and reliability for which Honda has long been renowned was also a factor in awarding Jazz the title.
Finally, the judging panel commented on the new level of big car specification features and a competitive price in awarding Jazz the overall Car of the Year title for 2016.
Emmet Kavanagh, Marketing Manager at Universal Honda Ltd., was delighted with the award for the Jazz. He commented, “Honda are very proud to win the Sunday Independent Car of the Year Award 2016. The new Jazz builds on all of the strengths of previous Jazz models, such as space, versatility and reliability, while now adding class-leading equipment, safety and connectivity technology, all for a retail price that represents excellent value.”
The Honda Jazz retails from €17,395, or €189 per month on PCP finance, and offers a class-leading level of standard equipment with Air conditioning, City-brake active system, Auto lights and wipers, Bluetooth and Cruise control on every model. CO2 emissions start from 106g/km (annual road tax from €190) and combined fuel consumption is from 4.6l/100km (61mpg), thanks to the new ‘Earth Dreams Technology’ 1.3 i-VTEC petrol engine.
