If the new Jazz is one of the models that you’re considering, you’d likely be more interested in it now that the costs will be lower since it comes with three years’ complimentary servicing and a range of competitive finance options. Buying the entry level Jazz 1.2 S will make you eligible for a £800 customer saving with prices from £10,495.
Customers who are upgrading to the 1.2 S (with A/C) will only have to pay £10,995, standing for a £1,000 saving. The others in the range, including the Hybrid, will benefit from Honda’s three years’ complimentary servicing. Honda also offers the 50/50 12 month finance plan on Hybrid and 1.4-litre petrol models.
Under this plan, customers avoid monthly payments by paying half on collection and the other half a year later, with 0% APR. The last time that this offer was made on the Jazz, about 45% of customers grabbed it. A variety of flexible finance options is offered throughout the range in order to break the cost of a new car into manageable monthly payments.
With a 25% deposit, customers can already receive a 5.9% PCP over three years, while those with a smaller deposit of 10% can secure a 7.9% PCP over the same duration.
A two year 0% HP is available on 1.4-litre and Hybrid variants. The revised Jazz supermini has earned a lot of praise for its reliability and practicality and this has led to excellent residual value figures. According to CAP estimations, the Honda Jazz will be able to keep up to 37% of its value after three years/60,000 miles.
The redesigned Jazz supermini continues to receive acclaim for its practicality and reliability. It is mainly because of this that its residual value figures remain to be appealing. Estimates made by CAP reveal that even after 3 years, or around 60,000 miles, the Honda Jazz will still carry around 37% of its value, which is about £6,727. That makes this top-of-the-line HX model have the highest value retention of any hybrid vehicle after three years or 60,000 miles.
Insurance groups have also assigned the new Jazz, especially the 1.2-litre variant, under insurance group 13. All the others in the line-up are under insurance group 16. Honda UK Managing Director Dave Hodgetts shared that a lot of people love the Jazz and this latest incarnation is on the way to achieve that same popularity. The company, he added, managed to increase the appeal of the car by adding CVT transmission plus introducing leather upholstery.
However the brand made sure to keep the features that customers have grown to love on the outgoing version like the large boot and the Magic Seats, he continued. Meanwhile, nothing was compromised on the Hybrid version even when running costs and emissions had to be kept low as this version continues to have everything offered in the petrol variant, Director Hodgetts said.
There is indeed no compromise. The brand will be launching an introductory offer that will reduce the cost of owning a Jazz, related Director Hodgetts. Those who buy the hybrid will get free road tax during the first year with only £10 every year thereafter, in addition to getting three years of free servicing, he added.
