I've had my Mk4 EX for nearly 5 months and have not seen another one, or a Crosstar, actually on the road, in the West Midlands area.
It certainly looks as though sales are not going well.
That's a shame, since I regard mine as the best Jazz yet, out of the 5 I've owned.
As others have said, where's the Honda advertising?

There is a Toyota dealership about 3 minutes walk from my house. They sell a lot of cars. I've seen loads of the new Yaris hybrid and other models as well. Everything I read about the new Jazz, including people on this forum, indicates that the Mk4 is by some distance the best Jazz yet - maybe price a factor?

I've only seen one black Jazz near Southall and no Crosstar.
My car was parked in Tentelow lane between the Three Bridges and Norwood Green, (outskirts of Southall) last Tuesday. The car is Midnight Blue, so in the torrential rain, may well have looked black. I live in the Midlands but we were visiting our daughter. While my wife and daughter were shopping I did a nostalgic visit to my childhood haunts.

My only spot was quite a few weeks ago and near the Western International Market.
Let's be careful out there!

Looking on autotrader there are around 310 21 Jazz for sale and 380 21 Yaris for sale, so there are cars are out there for sale.

Prices seem quite similar too, but the Yaris is much more heavily promoted.

(There are 745 21 VW Polo for sale so perhaps production/delivery of the Jazz and Yaris was slower this year)

I wonder if there might be a lack of new cars available at the moment?

Ive seen second hand EX Jazz up locally for more than list despite a couple of thousand miles.

Also, one Crosstar at a main dealer with over 2500 miles on it up for sale for 24,500!

At those prices people are likely to choose something else.

There was an article in the Times at the weekend saying the same.

There was a list of used car prices across a lot of manufacturers costing more than new.

Crazy times.
Let's be careful out there!

See post below 'HONDA EUROPE'
Perhaps they are getting worried at the lack of sales!

Assuming that post is genuinely linked to Honda Europe.

I was in a Honda dealer yesterday enquiring about a Crosstar, if I ordered it now, they would expect delivery around December or January.

If you want a Crosstar, don't bother to order and wait there are plenty of new unregistered ones on Autotrader, many at ridiculously discounted prices, for immediate delivery.
Don't forget that you can buy a cor on line anywhere in the country and if too far for you to go they will deliver for a nominal charge.
I have bought many cars like this, even before the 'plague' took hold. If you have a P/X it is even simpler as they will deliver your new car and drive your old one back. You both agree a price for your old one with a full and frank description and photos of your car and the agreement is that as long as the car is as you have described , the deal is done. If not they simply discuss an adjusted, agreeable P/X allowance or they drive away.
Looky here, below. Don't be tempted by some greedy dealers who are charging MORE for their ex demos than you can buy a new one for!
Good luck.

Plus a selection of ex-demonstrators at https://usedcars.honda.co.uk/en/used-cars/approved-cars/all-brands/all-models?country=gb&unitSystem=imperial&currency=GBP&currentSearch=honda&price_type_switch=price&reg_date_from=2020&manufacturer=21&model=2139&hybrid=1&zip=W1+1AA&radius=5000&warrantyProgram=22&sort=price:DESC#result-tools-top .
These prices seem incredibly high. There is usually at least 1000 discount off the price of a new car.
And as for the APR finance rates? Much higher than the 5% (which in my opinion is still high) on a new Honda.

I bought my Jazz through carwow, the first time Id used them.

Several of the local dealers were offering similar discounts on the list price for brand new cars to the spec Id requested.

It was an easy process as the price was already agreed before I took the test drive just to confirm before placing the order.

At our Polish Honda dealer, we closed the deal with a discount of 9% plus delivery on Vredestein Quatrac all-season tires. Total discount about 1900. We happy, dealer apparently also satisfied.
