Really? I thought they're the same car? Anyway, it probably has to do with the fact that in Japan and Europe (I think...) the Gasoline quality (octane numbers) are a bit higher than in the United States. So which MIGHT equate to better gas mileage... Secondly, looking at Wikipedia, Europe and Japan offer the smaller 1.3L engine compared to the more powerful 1.5L engine in the United States.... This could be the determining factor for the gasoline consumption... Other than that they're essentially the same car...

It's smaller and weighs less, and it's a different shape. That's probably doing it.

The way that the US writes it's emmision standards causes the fit to get less mileage. The US is more concerned with Carbon Monoxide and NOx emmisions, the EU has a strict standard for SOx emmisions. Slightly different CATs and EGR systems. Also the Jazz is offered with a smaller engine package as well.
