Honda Jazz Hybrid drive

Ahead of wheeling out the Jazz petrol powered and the all-new Hybrid versions for the to start buying on the 1 March a brand new 11 registration plate, aired their new line-up to the last week and the following is a by step guide to the new range.

The 1.2-litre and best-selling 1.4-litre petrol engines have from some small in CO2 values and improved fuel

The 1.4-litre manual variant manual transmission has emissions at 126 g/km, down from 128 and uses 51.4mpg on the combined

This means a VED road tax of £0 for the First Year and £90 per annum that. The fuel sipping 1.2 engine uses 53.3mpg and drops two grams of CO2 to 123g/km so the VED are the same as the larger unit. for the 1.2 Jazz start from

Honda Jazz 1.2 89bhp

The 1.2-litre, 89bhp/84lb ft unit is free revving and eager but it is with a five speed transmission. For a little less on the open road a six speed would bring benefits in reduction and fuel economy.

But from £11,295 this is a affordable way into the Jazz range. My rural test resulted in a real-life fuel of 46.5mpg. Top speed is 110mph, takes 12.5 seconds.

Jazz 1.4 98bhp

The 1.4-litre ft petrol engine is the mainstay of the and I tried it with the re-introduced CVT transmission.

Many customers this combination because it is to use and doesn’t really detract the car’s performance. Indeed it is more economical on fuel a shade less CO2 emissions the five speed manual

The extra power and torque the 1.2-litre unit makes it relaxed and responsive for real-life conditions and more economical on as well.

During my rural test the 1.4-litre model with the CVT returned an impressive 50.4mpg and I driving it in ‘doddle mode’. Top is 109mph (113mph manual), 12.8 seconds (11.5 manual). Prices for the 1.4 Jazz at £13,495 for the manual and £14,495 for the CVT

The 1.3-litre petrol/Hybrid is the new addition to the range. This is the same as used for the Honda Hybrid.

With Jazz prices from £15,995 the CVT transmission as standard it is £1,500 than the conventional 1.4-litre CVT model so out comes the family to see if the sums add up for average annual fuel consumption, road tax versus the extra purchase

The petrol engine produces ft of torque and the electric motor ft. The extra torque makes it responsive during acceleration low speeds and in the cruise the power allows the Jazz to just along effortlessly.

There is the ECO mode function at the push of a button, lots of as to power or Hybrid boost in operation and the dials change from blue to green as a to fuel efficient driving.

Oh yes and green tree symbols as frugal driving gets There is also the usual stop/start function as well. The fuel consumption is 62.8mpg CO2 emissions of 104g/km.

Top speed is 0 to 62mph takes 12.3

During my rural drive the car returned 58.1mpg driven in a manner over the same as the non-Hybrid 1.4-litre petrol CVT The lower CO2 emissions mean £0 VED for the Year for the Hybrid and £10 a year that.

Company car drivers pay only 10% BIK tax as opposed to £15% for the Jazz models. Tricky to be undertaken and for the record the 104g/km the Jazz Hybrid means it get around the London Congestion either.

Conventional diesel superminis as the VW Polo Bluemotion and Ford Econetic are cheaper to buy, better mpg figures and have sub emission levels as well.

The expensive (£19,545) and slightly Toyota Auris Hybrid has of only 89g/km and returns an 74.3mpg.

Petrol and diesel plug-in Hybrids and all-electric vehicles are becoming more and commonplace and we will have to them but in reality the latest petrol and diesel engines can be as fuel and CO2 efficient so the current financial choice will be harder in the future. Time to up on our maths.

Honda Jazz specification

HONDA Jazz Hybrid

There are numerous throughout the new 2011 Jazz As always being a Honda are well built and feel solid.

The suspension changes a more comfortable ride, not perfect but better. The steering a little more feedback and its and light touch means it is to drive in traffic and compact to

A big omission though are the lack of sensors as standard and if you want be prepared to pay an extra £600 for and rear end protection. Indeed it is worthwhile adding to your calculations the standard fit items and it costs to move up the specification

A full ‘specced’ Hybrid HX in at a costly £17,995. The lowest HE specification includes 15-inch wheels, seatbelts for all five air conditioning, on board computer, and rear electric windows, operated and heated door on-board computer, paddle gear selector, full of airbags and safety equipment, locking and hill start

The latest Jazz is much but the Hybrid versions carry a price penalty and new generation and diesel competitor models are to buy and to run.
