Honda has unveiled the all new Jazz, featuring an advanced two-motor hybrid powertrain technology as standard for the first time.
The new Jazz will also sport a Crosstar variant, with an increased ride height for those seeking a more crossover-esque design The new Jazz will introduce the efficiency benefits and performance of hybrid power to the mass market and accelerate Honda towards achieving its ambition of having all its European mainstream models featuring electrified powertrains by 2022.
For the first time ever in Europe, the Jazz will only be available with an advanced two-motor hybrid powertrain, which will provide an exceptional blend of strong and effortless driving performance, and impressive fuel economy. The system is newly developed for the Jazz and provides a smooth, responsive and direct driving feel.
The next generation Jazz will also be the first model in Honda's European lineup to wear the new 'e:HEV' powertrain badging. Short for 'Honda e:Technology', the new branding that will feature across all future electrified products.
The new Jazz retains Honda's Magic Seats Another addition to the range is a new 'Crosstar' variant, designed to appeal to those seeking a more crossover-esque design.
Available with the same hybrid powertrain and interior features as the standard model, the new Crosstar features an increased ride height, a unique front grille design, water-resistant upholstery and integrated roof rails.
The all new Jazz also retains the class-leading levels of interior space that was the hallmark of previous generations, through the clever packaging of hybrid drivetrain components into the chassis and within the engine bay.
Key to maximising cabin room is the positioning of the fuel tank in the centre of the chassis beneath the front seats, which is unique in this class. This enables the Jazz to retain the exceptionally versatile rear Magic Seats that offer both 'fold-flat' or 'flip-up' seat flexibility, depending on cargo space required.
Sales of the next generation Honda Jazz is set to start in mid-2020 for European markets.
