New to our showrooms this summer, you'll find the all-new Honda Jazz and Jazz Crosstar. Both models provide an effortless driving experience with efficient and responsive performance delivered by advanced e:HEV hybrid technology as standard. Jazz e:HEV has been engineered to deliver a compelling blend of strong performance and impressive efficiency to complement its class-leading levels of interior comfort and usability.
An evolution of the timeless Jazz shape, the design of the new Jazz introduces smooth contours which follow the short nose and cabin-forward style of previous generations. The result of this design evolution is a new emotional appeal to add to the class-leading levels of comfort and practicality for which Jazz is renowned.
For the first time, the Jazz will be sold exclusively across Europe with an advanced hybrid powertrain. The e:HEV system is newly developed for Jazz and engineered to deliver enjoyment to the driving experience. It comprises two energy-dense electric motors, a 1.5-litre i-VTEC petrol engine, a lithium-ion battery and an innovative fixed-gear transmission, which all work harmoniously together to deliver the best ratio of fuel economy to acceleration in its class.
To deliver such a highly-rewarding driving experience and exceptional efficiency, the advanced e:HEV hybrid set-up seamlessly selects from three interchangeable drive modes:
Intuitive technology and seamless in-car connectivity integrate with occupants' everyday lives with ease, supported by a comprehensive suite of infotainment services, including Honda Personal Assistant and My Honda+ app (not available
on all grades). Featuring the most comprehensive suite of advanced safety features and driver aids in its class, the Honda Jazz and Jazz Crosstar are fitted with active and passive Honda safety technology designed to make driving both easier and safer.
To broaden the appeal of the model, the rugged Jazz Crosstar variant presents a more SUV-style proposition, orientated toward those with active lifestyles. The model's increased presence comes from a bold front grille design, black cladding around the wheelarches and stylish side sills and roof rails. The Crosstar-specific silver and black alloy wheels create an increased sense of stability and enhance the overall robust visual effect. To further differentiate from the standard Jazz model, the Crosstar variant is also available with its own unique Surf Blue paint colour, plus customers have the opportunity to specify a contrasting Crystal Black roof.
Creating a comfortable, feel-good interior
The uncluttered, user-focused dashboard incorporates a slim instrument panel that sweeps horizontally across the cabin, with no visor effect restricting the field of vision, further enhancing the sense of exceptional spaciousness. With Honda placing ultimate usability at the core of the design ethos, the central HMI 9-inch touchscreen - standard on SR and EX grades - and 7-inch full TFT instrument cluster - standard across the range - are simple and easy to read. Convenience features and controls are easy to reach and use, contributing to a stress-free driving experience.
The luggage capacity (with rear seats up) starts from 298 litres and increases to an impressive 1,199 litres (to the roof with the rear seats down). This was achieved through the clever packaging of hybrid drivetrain components into the chassis and within the engine bay.
