Honda has a long history devising clever urban runabouts like the City, Today and Logo of the '80s and '90s, but it wasn't until the GD Jazz arrived in 2002 that Australians really had their first taste of what the Japanese carmaker could achieve with baby cars.
Central to the compact Honda's classless appeal was its incredible packaging, brought about by boxy proportions and the relocation of the petrol tank from under the rear seat (like most cars) to a more forward location.
With a trick seating arrangement, the resulting available cargo space was cavernous, making for a massive little panel van if required. This continued with 2008's GE series, as well as the 2014 GF/GK series. The cheapest grade started from $11,500, rising to $25,740 for the most expensive version.
Unfortunately, Honda Australia dropped the Jazz in 2021, meaning we miss out on the all-new, hybrid-optional fourth-gen version. A real pity.
