    The new Honda Jazz is bigger than ever thanks to a new chassis and longer wheelbase. We test it on UK roads to see if it's better to drive, too The Honda Jazz is something of a non-conformist in the small-car world. It’s always felt more like a mini-MPV rather than a traditional, zippy town car such as the Volkswagen Polo or Skoda Fabia. However, what it lacked in nimbleness, it made up for with supreme cabin practicality.This latest version is no measly refresh; from the ground up it’s all new. There’s a new chassis using Honda’s Global Compact Platform, with new front suspension that’s claimed to improve both ride and refinement – a bugbear of the old Jazz. It also allows for a longer wheelbase, so the engineers have eked out even more interior space.You can only order a 1.3-litre petrol at the moment, but that’s new too, as is the infotainment system and the raft of extra safety kit on offer.
