Honda Jazz Hybrid

Fuel: Hybrid

Fuel economy 62.8 mpg

Green-Car-Guide rating:

Petrol-electric hybrid technology is now to smaller cars – and the Honda hybrid is the first supermini to use technology to improve its fuel to 62.8 mpg .

This makes it the economical petrol-powered supermini – and the one the lowest emissions, at 104 g/km CO 2 .

this great economy the fact that the Jazz has packaging for its size, and with excellent reliability record, and this car must be a winner.

the Jazz is a supermini-sized car, it has to be a people carrier. No, it doesn’t a third row of seats, but it has an unbelievable of space inside the car, and a of storage areas – ranging drink-holders at each end of the dashboard, are very convenient to accommodate phones, to a large amount of under the seats.

Even the themselves are clever – in fact calls them ‘Magic No, they don’t disappear a secret command, but they are versatile; the rear seats can back, stow upright to a deep storage space, or flat, and the front passenger can also fold down to fit items such as dreaded furniture.

Despite the extra hybrid this version of the Jazz has the seating capability and total luggage space, at 883 litres, as the version, because the IMA system’s pack and power control sit under the boot floor than encroach into the space.

While we’re the interior, if you’re looking to to a Jazz from a car in this with more basic of equipment, when you see the dashboard of the you’ll be like a child new toys on Christmas day. are lots of switches and controls, on the dash and on the steering wheel, as as lots of different displays and almost to the extent that all a bit overwhelming.

On the green side of there’s an ECON button changes the car’s settings to tease out maximum miles per There’s also Eco Assist which glows green you drive economically. And there are that grow as you drive which may be a gimmick that’s not to tastes.

The launch of the hybrid coincides with a mid-life refresh for the Jazz range. The end looks better than the old and the front is also an improvement, the front of the hybrid model slightly more fussy.

The IMA hybrid system is identical to the one in the Honda Insight a 1.3-litre engine combined with a CVT with an electric motor between the two to create a parallel system. The hybrid system economy and brings CO 2 emissions to the best diesel models – but the has much lower NOx and zero emissions, so it’s better a diesel in terms of local air issues.

Having a hybrid mated to a petrol engine means that the Jazz is quiet – most of the time. In with most cars CVT transmissions, if you accelerate hard the revs will rise, with the engine noise, yet will not necessarily be any direct in your rate of progress.

hybrids are therefore best slowly and gently, and by doing so you be rewarded with a smooth and drive, and also with fuel economy.

If you do need to get in a hurry, the Jazz does a useful trick up its sleeve – you can gear with paddle behind the steering wheel to manual control of the ratios. unlikely that most will use this feature much, but if you need to overtake, down using the steering controls really helps. the paddles are used in ‘D’ mode can bring the car into a lower for a kickdown effect; in ‘S’ mode give full manual

Apart from the CVT transmission, the of grip are another reason why you make a habit of driving too in this car. Although very narrow width with ease of driving and economy, the tyres don’t huge amounts of grip fast cornering – and the light and steering combined with the tall and narrow shape of the car help to provide a feeling of stability. Compared to the Honda the Jazz feels more and better damped – but it is engineered to it easy to drive rather for a direct driving feel.

So the hybrid system make in this car? Well it offer improved economy if you it carefully. And it enhances the quiet, and easy nature of the car around – where it’s likely to most of its time.

The Jazz can on electric-only power under low speed conditions, but the IMA system a full hybrid system as in cars such as the Toyota This means that you drive for any distance in electric-only But it is simpler and therefore cheaper the rival Toyota system, and in cases it still cuts the when at a halt, which complete sense from a CO2 and local air quality point of – so much so that most are now going down this with some form of system.

Despite the Jazz being a it is not exempt from the London charge, or from the other tax that sub-100 g/km enjoy, because its emissions are 104 CO 2 . However you still get free tax for the first year and pay just 10 per thereafter.

Interestingly, Honda happy to proclaim that the age of a Jazz customer is 56 years it is hoped that the hybrid which is expected to account for 10% of total Jazz sales, help to attract a younger base.

If you’re still not about the hybrid, the Jazz comes with 1.2-litre and i-VTEC petrol engines. The returns 53.3 mpg along 123 g/km CO 2 . so the hybrid definitely an advantage in the area of economy and

While we were testing car, we noticed a huge of other Jazz models on the This happens with car you’re driving, but never to the that we experienced with the And this really sums up the car – it about its business in a quiet, way that may not get noticed, but lots of obviously think it is an ideal car for – as proven by its consistent placing the top of new car sales figures.

The Honda Jazz hybrid a great deal of sense if you to minimise your fuel and emissions around town. electric cars, you can drive the far out of city limits but that’s not it’s at its best.

If you like then you probably won’t the CVT transmission. If you prefer manuals the indirect nature of the CVT may not be to your but the steering wheel-mounted paddles help to give you more

The Jazz is more practical most superminis, and if you have who insist on taking lots of toys into the car, the Jazz, with all of its storage is ideal.

When NOx and particulate emissions are taken into the overall emissions of the Jazz are than diesel models, you have to drive carefully to get the fuel consumption and even it can’t match the fuel of the best diesels.

At 15,995 it is expensive for a supermini, but it is advanced, well equipped, and much guaranteed to be reliable.

The Jazz hybrid gets a rating of 8 out of 10. It has excellent packaging, easy to drive, and it has low emissions – in terms of CO 2 and emissions that upon local air quality.

It be excellent if Honda could get the of the Jazz hybrid down to 99 CO 2 . and so benefit from exemption for the congestion charge and other g/km tax incentives.
