High efficiency crossbar is always efficient and becomes the champion of urban consumption
The Honda Jazz has been a pioneer for nearly a decade in the compact category of vehicles with full hybrid engines, rechargeable batteries on the road and electric for short distances.
In the fourth generation, Japanese compact cars with the soul of minivans are also aimed at cross-border car enthusiasts, and the improved version of Crosstar is the target, which is the protagonist of the real consumption test of Rome Ford. The new Honda Jazz hybrid, with an outstanding performance of 3.95 L / 100 km (25.32 km / L), ranks among the top 10 tested full hybrid vehicles with a travel cost of 20.18 euro.
It is right in the top 10 of "complete" hybrids. In fact, just rolling through the actual consumption level is enough to discover that the new Honda Jazz hybrid (3.95 L / 100 km, thanks to its 109 HP 1.5 gasoline + electric engine) is only the average of the modern IONIQ hybrid, and I just had a little rest. The new Toyota Yaris hybrid stands out from the queen of compact cars, weighing 3.60 L / 100 km (27.78 km / L).
Not far away is the Toyota Corolla 1.8 hybrid (3.90 L / 100 km - 25.6 km / L), which is at the same level as the new Opel Corsa 1.2, with an accuracy of 3.95 L / 100 km.
Besides, it is as practical as a van, and it has a cross look. The new Honda Jazz is almost unique in the market with its 4.04m compact size and MPV set-up, its outstanding appearance visibility is amazing, and its separated front pillar solution ensures sufficient height space. And the internal brightness, as well as in the tested version of crossbar.
The slightly elevated attitude, roof rail and some cross and slightly off-road finishes give high travel comfort, great ease of loading and use, multiple compartments and easy driving, especially in the city. The suburbs are quieter.
Only those who seek sportiness from this 109-horsepower primary electric traction may be disappointed that even by "pressing" the accelerator pedal, both engines can make the most of it and allow relatively quiet overtaking. The output and speed of E-CVT can't meet this demand for performance.
There are also state incentives
The test car is a premium executive two-color version of surf blue, with full led front and rear lights, leather steering wheel, front and rear parking sensors, waterproof fabric inside, ADAS Honda sensing including maintenance. Active lane and adaptive cruise control system, navigator and Honda are connected by 9-inch touch screen.
The price (excluding sales promotion) is 28500 euro, and the price is in the range of 61-90 g / km due to its carbon dioxide emissions of 89 g / km, and the car enjoys the National Award (as of December 31) reduced from 2000 to 3750 euro and scrapped.
What's really surprising is that the consumption of this new Honda Jazz hybrid has always been very small. In short, even if you're focused and don't pay special attention to driving, you won't always be thirsty for gasoline.
It's almost a record breaking, and only the defeat of the Toyota Prius plug-in hybrid is the result of urban driving. The incredible number is 4.1 L / 100 km, which is equal to the level of urban hybrid cycle outside the city. On expressways, fuel consumption has increased, but this is not important, thanks to the 40 litre tank, which is always sufficient. For more information, please visit Wapcar.
