Honda Jazz Hybrid

The fusion

Testing a hybrid isn’t a very pleasurable for a motoring journalist and/or I would imagine it feels a food critic having to an instant diet meal the media alleges that getting too fat and we’re running out of

The car fanatic inside me wanted to put a fat scratch down the side of new Jazz Hybrid but there was a I love the Jazz. The motoring part of me wanted to slate the batteries, dirty construction and issues but there was another I like Hybrids.

Like. Not I don’t think that are the future but I do believe that a wonky step in the right As soon as the poisonous battery has been solved, I’ll remove the word “wonky”.

I don’t mind electric as long as I can keep my internal engine for occasional use.

like its bigger Insight mate, the Jazz offers an mix of new-age hybrid witchcraft by good old-fashioned versatility and with some clever tactics. In short, two days my weekly test I was driving the slower and more carefully any senior citizen.

This alarmed most of my friends. A demonstration put their minds at as to why I had been crawling around at 44km/h: the Jazz (just the Insight) encourages economic by means of multiple consumption and displays.

A consumption memory read-out your last three then there’s a hybrid display, instant consumption various averages and that little screen with plants in it. Drive like a and they gradually die. like a saint and they back.

These items are in a multi-function display inside the which changes colour to the inclination of your right In close proximity sits a dial whose needle to “charge” or “assist” depending on momentum and prevailing battery

It sounds like kid’s but trust me, even yours with 95 Unleaded in his veins resist pressing the ECO button and the five plants back to The cherry on top is, as mentioned before, the Jazz is a great product and it like any other little

With the possible exception of its CVT variable transmission) automatic I could complain about the response or diabolical noise but the of the matter is this: the one-gear-fits-all suits the Hybrid Jazz

There are paddles behind the multi-function steering wheel, but simply simulate gear and lose interest after a few The real advantage here is the small 1.3 petrol motor a helping hand from the electric motor to provide a forward shove.

75kW of combined power and 121Nm of torque is enough to gently along at 1,500rpm while else is furiously stirring in box of cogs. Once the petrol is warmed up, it will also down at traffic lights due to its / Stop system.

This means that use an average of 4.4L/100km (we managed and only emit 105g 0-100km/h takes 12.2 (we managed 10.9) and top speed around 175km/h. Our figures their own story: the Hybrid was slightly faster and thirstier we expected.

You could argue a small Turbo-diesel will or better those figures, and be right. But a small cluck-cluck be as smooth and emissions-wise as the little The tractor motor might more torque, but you’d be at how brawny and instant the Hybrid’s delivery is. no turbo hole.

As for the actual car and interior, I’m not going to with it much as I’m running out of The Honda Jazz is unbelievably well spec’d and well It’s much bigger than you imagine, the steering is and fluffy, it turns 180 degrees in 5.4 meters and has good road

The Hybrid Jazz is unfortunately as expensive as its siblings and just to be S.A.’s cheapest Hybrid at Included in the price are a three-year warranty and a four-year 60,000km plan with 15,000km

To sum up, the fusion of instant torque, gear and hearty Jazz won me quite quickly. Plus, I around for a week on half a so it wouldn’t take long for hybrid purchase to make and environmental sense. Just add and a Greenpeace sticker.
