At Johnsons Honda, we were excited to hear about the latest addition to the iconic Jazz range: a hybrid twist on the iconic supermini. Ahead of its expected release, Honda has announced more information about the new 2020 Jazz, including its new powertrain and the new adventurous Crosstar variant.
The next-generation Honda Jazz arrives with dynamic, modern
looks and will be the first model in the marque’s European lineup to wear the
new e:HEV powertrain badging. The Head of Car at Honda, UK Phil Webb, described
the Jazz as: “The embodiment of the brand’s commitment to a fully electrified
range and is another symbolic step towards our electric vision.” Indeed, Jazz
is a key part of Honda’s plans to bring forward their target to have a fully
electrified vehicle lineup in Europe to 2022 (previously 2025).
Smooth hybrid performance
All Jazz trims will gain a two-motor hybrid powertrain as standard for the first time, combining a 1.5-litre petrol engine paired to two electric motors, developing a total of 109PS. The next-generation e:HEV Hybrid technology provides a dynamic, electrified driving experience, blending high performance with economy and low emissions. It is capable of returning 62mpg while emitting 102g/km (WLTP) of CO2.
The new Crosstar trim
The new Jazz range has been designed with a seamless aerodynamic profile. A new addition to the hybrid Jazz range is the new ‘Crosstar’ variant, with its rugged SUV-influenced design and a selection of new body colours including two-tone options, plus increased ride height, a unique front grille design, black plastic cladding, water-resistant upholstery and integrated roof rails.
