Honda Jazz Crossover

Posted on  by admin

The Honda Jazz has been an Honest John favourite ever since the original model arrived in 2001, with its big-car versatility, low running costs and a reputation for reliability. It’s a car that’s always been popular with the older generation but the latest model, launched in 2020, ought to have a broader appeal. If you want a sensible, comfortable and practical small car, for nearly two decades the Honda Jazz has been a brilliant choice. But this latest fourth-generation Jazz is arguably the boldest yet – featuring a more distinctive kei car-like design, mandatory hybrid powertrains and an overhauled interior. The Honda Fit (Japanese: ホンダ・フィット, Hepburn: Honda Fitto), also marketed as Honda Jazz, is a five-door B-segment supermini or subcompact car manufactured and marketed by Honda since 2001 and now in its fourth generation.

The Honda Jazz is the small car to beat for passenger space, and its unique and incredibly flexible rear seating only adds to its practicality. It’s neither the most fun car in the class (that’s the Ford Fiesta) nor the most comfortable (that’s the Peugeot 208), but with excellent visibility, it’s definitely easy to drive. Hybrid power also makes it really cheap to fuel, and slow depreciation helps make up for high prices.

The Crosstar EX is essentially a more rugged version of the standard Jazz and features bolt-on roof rails, two-tone paint, a unique front grille design, elevated ride height and black plastic cladding around its wheel arches. The interior also benefits from water repellent fabric upholstery and an eight-speaker sound system with a subwoofer. It's very expensive, though, so we don't recommend it.

You don't need to worry about choosing an engine because there’s only one: a 1.5-litre petrol-electric hybrid. With a total of 108bhp, it allows the Jazz to accelerate quicker than our favourite Volkswagen Polo, and it's very economical in real-world driving, too.

Honda still insists on trying to conquer the small-segment with a small MPV while everyone else builds hatchbacks.

So, they introduced the new Jazz/Fit. A small MPV that has been on the market since 2000 and it is now on its fourth generation. The previous generations were available only as city-vehicles.
This time, the Jazz also comes with a cross-over variant, called Jazz Crosstar, which features some plastic overfenders and SUV-inspired details, although underneath it is still a Jazz. But just remember that the crossover Honda HR-V also used the Jazz/Fit platform.
If the previous generation had a hybrid version, the 2020 Jazz has only hybrid units under the hood. An 98 hp gasoline engine is helped by an electric motor and the total output goes to 109 hp. Honda didn't specify any performance data, but we will update the info on the way.
Inside, the MPV shape helps in getting a big interior room. The Magic Seats system for the rear seats was maintained. Also, the foldable rear seatback is still available. This means that the gas tank is still under the driver seat, leading to a higher driving position. The dashboard is in the Internet and connectivity age, with a big TFT as an instrument panel and a 9” touch-screen for the infotainment unit. The 2020 Jazz has Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
