The Honda Jazz, a car that has been somewhat stereotyped for the last few years, has ths latest variant got what it takes to break this?

Well in a word, yes - let us explain

The new Hybrid Jazz has a 1.5 iVTEC DOHC engine, an electric motor and an eCVT, it'll pull 0-60 in around 9.5 seconds and offers around 65mpg.

It's not the fastest ca, yet it's engaging and fun on a backroad, and the hybrid system works very well, seamless transition betwen all 3 modes, we managed around 45mph on pure electric, and the B mode on the transmission really works with recharging quicker.

There are 3 trims to choose from and the Crosstar which will follow this.

Our model retails for around £22,000, we have the EX trim which builds on the SE and SR which include Active Cruise Control and Honda Sensing - the EX has additional Blind spot monitoring and Cross Traffic alert.
