Theis the successful compact model with huge spaces, practicality, rich Honda technology. The addressed to lovers of excursions outside the urban fabric.
The designers rightfully claim the credit, having finally managed to “further modernize” the appearance of the new Honda Jazz. And they did it in a very clever way…
THE Crossstar version it is distinguished by the increased height of the body from the ground (+29 mm, a total of 152 mm), by the black plastic surrounds of the car as well as by the roof rails.
Its characteristic silhouette and the unique Magic Seats remain among the elements that strengthen its spatial talent, but – at the same time – even more advantages are added in terms of technology and design.
This is clearly the car that… puts the glasses on the competition. The fresh set is completed by the particularly playful graphics of the front LED daytime running lights as well as the intense two-tone.
The quiet and quality ride as well as the pleasant feeling it offers to its passengers are elements worth mentioning and the… icing on the cake? The Crosstar version, which gives the Jazz a more dynamic and crossover touch.
Honda put all its talent into the interior of the Jazz Crosstar. The center of the dashboard was covered with fabric – of a different shade – offering a more “warm” and welcoming feeling to the passengers. The fit as usual fluctuates at a top level without a trace of a blemish.
From the inside and at the top of the console there is the sharp 9-inch Honda Connect touchscreen. The software that “runs” is simple to get used to and fast thanks to new processors, while the upgraded navigation – compared to the rest of the brand’s models – is remarkable.
The response speed of the user commands have been reduced to zero and at the same time the connectivity capabilities have increased, which is easily understood by the protocols Apple CarPlay and Android Autowhich are also activated with WIFI connection.
The Honda Personal Assistant activated via voice commands, can maintain a natural conversation, using content-based understanding to learn how to offer relevant recommendations.
Now, if one wishes to be instantly informed about the weather or to find one’s favorite music or a restaurant, personal digital assistant is always there to serve.
The hybrid and very advanced set of Honda is called e:HEV. Under the hood of the Honda Jazz Crosstar nestles a 1,500 naturally aspirated gasoline engine, which is combined with an electric motor.
The total power is 109 hp and 253 Nm of torqueallowing the car to reach the first 100 km/h from a standstill in just 9.9 sec.
The result is of course apart from the very good performance of the Jazz Crosstar e:HEV, the welcome ultra-low fuel consumption, but also the civilized operation. You literally don’t need anything more…
