The All-New Jazz Hybrid

Technology Inside and Out

The all-new Jazz plays a key role in Honda’s commitment that 100% of our mainstream European sales will feature electrified powertrains by 2022.

Providing an effortless driving experience, the all-new Honda Jazz comes with e:HEV Hybrid technology as standard – delivering a performance that's efficient and responsive.

The compact car offers the most compelling package in its segment – combining increased comfort and intuitive technology, with seamless in-car connectivity and remote services that seamlessly integrate with your everyday life.

THE ROAD TO THE FUTURE

For the first time, the Jazz will be sold exclusively across Europe with an advanced hybrid powertrain. It comprises two powerful electric motors connected to a 1.5-litre DOHC i-VTEC petrol engine, a lithium-ion battery and an innovative fixed-gear transmission via an intelligent power control unit, which all work harmoniously together to provide a smooth and direct response.

Powerful and compact, the combined system can push the Jazz from 0-60mph in just over 9 seconds with a top speed of around 108mph. The result is an enjoyable and comfortable journey, whether you’re travelling through urban areas or cruising at a high speed on motorways.

Its fuel-efficient hybrid system produces low CO2 with exceptional fuel economy – up to 62.8 mpg (WLTP) – ensuring you’re really feeling the long-term benefits in your back pocket.

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:

EV Drive: the lithium-ion battery supplies power to the electric propulsion motor directly.

Hybrid Drive: the engine supplies power to the electric generator motor, which in turn supplies it to the electric propulsion motor.

Engine Drive: the petrol engine is connected directly to the wheels via a lock-up clutch.

In most urban driving situations, the Jazz gets the most out of its fuel load by seamlessly transitioning between EV and Hybrid drive.

For driving at motorway speeds, Engine Drive is used, supplemented by an on-demand peak power ‘boost’ from the electric propulsion motor for fast acceleration.

In Hybrid Drive, excess power from the petrol engine can also be diverted to recharge the battery via the generator motor. EV Drive is also engaged when the car is decelerating, harvesting energy through regenerative braking to recharge the battery in much the same way as a modern Formula 1 car.

By focussing significant efforts on minimising lag during transitions, our engineers have made switching between the three driving modes unnoticeable for you and your passengers.

The high-speed electric motors have been developed in-house by Honda to be as lightweight, compact, efficient and power-dense as possible, with the electric propulsion motor spinning at up to 13,300 rpm to generate a high torque for substantial low-speed acceleration.

Rather than using a conventional transmission, a single fixed-gear ratio creates a direct connection between moving components, resulting in smoother acceleration as well as enhanced ride comfort due to the low friction suspension and rigid body.

 

CLEVER PACKAGING FOR UNRIVALLED SPACE

When developing the all-new Jazz, our engineers worked closely with the design team to ensure the car retained the class-leading levels of interior space that was the hallmark of previous generations – accentuating its safe feeling.

The luggage capacity (with rear seats up) starts from 298 litres...

...and goes up to an impressive 1203 litres (rear seats down, to the roof). They achieved this through the clever packaging of hybrid drivetrain components into the chassis and within the engine bay.

Significant developments to the engine intakes, transmission and motors has allowed the new Jazz to make the most of its cabin room – this enables the Jazz to retain the exceptionally versatile rear Magic Seat configuration that offers both fold-flat and flip-up seat flexibility, depending on load space required.

So, whatever you fit into your life, will also fit into your Jazz.

LIFE IS BETTER CONNECTED

The all-new Honda Jazz provides seamless in-car connectivity that allow you to connect to your everyday life with ease.

The simple-to-use LCD touchscreen interface is designed to minimise driver distraction; operation time for the most regularly used controls is reduced by 58% compared with the previous model, providing a safer and more ergonomic experience.

The system interface offers a familiar smartphone-style usability, with swipe controls to scroll through pages and lists. The display can be configured to suit any usage requirements, incorporating customisable shortcuts to frequently used functions and audio sources.

Connected infotainment services are accessed via the touchscreen or are voice-activated, including parking locations, music, navigation, location finding, and telephone services. The comprehensive suite of in-built apps can be supplemented by smartphone mirroring, via built-in Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, available via wireless connection or by using a USB cable. A Wi-Fi Hotspot is also available on the all-new Jazz for the first time.

The car’s interior designers paid great attention to detail when creating the uncluttered dashboard and interface, with physical controls for key functions and tactile, precise-feeling dials for heating and ventilation settings.

Connected services and applications accessed via the advanced touchscreen interface can also be activated using voice commands, through the Honda Personal Assistant.

First seen in the Honda e, the intuitive Honda Personal Assistant is a smart artificial intelligence (AI) facility – using natural, smart instruction-based conversations and contextual understanding to access a range of online services.

You can easily activate the Honda Personal Assistant by saying “OK Honda”, followed by your question or instruction. An abstract face animation will then accompany the humanised response and visually acknowledge your interaction.

Context recognition allows you to converse naturally with it, with the AI understanding the context of follow-up questions and responses. It also enables real-time search function, with context, to locate services that are available at specific times. So, if you need to check the weather or find your favourite music or choice of restaurant, it’s always there to help you.

WHERE SAFETY COMES AS STANDARD

The all-new Honda Jazz comes complete with an upgraded suite of advanced safety features and driver aids as standard, thanks to a newly developed front wide-view camera that enhances the field of vision.

Honda‘s Collision Mitigation Braking System has been improved with night-time operation to detect pedestrians and cyclists, plus it now applies the brakes to avoid a collision when the car cuts across or turns into the path of an oncoming vehicle.

For the first time on the Jazz, Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Keep Assist System are available as standard. As is Road Departure Mitigation System, which assists the driver to not stray from the road by alerting them when the system detects that the vehicle may be crossing a detected lane marking, approaching the outer edge of a pavement or oncoming vehicles.

Blind Spot Information, complete with Cross Traffic Monitor, is standard on EX grades.

The Intelligent Speed Limiter recognises traffic speed signs and sets the speed limit. If the traffic sign shows a slower speed compared to the actual vehicle speed, an indicator on the display flashes with an alarm sound and the system gradually decreases the vehicle speed. Auto High-Beam Headlights and Traffic Sign Recognition also remain part of Honda SENSING’s offering on the all-new Jazz.

Passive safety is equally as important to Honda as active safety. To help protect you and your passengers in the event of accident, the all-new Jazz now features ten airbags, including the introduction of a new front centre airbag. This innovative centre airbag is integrated into the centre of the driver’s seat back and expands from the side in the event of a collision, protecting the occupant’s heads from colliding.
