This Honda Jazz was one of the first small hybrids. In addition to a very favorable size-habitability ratio, it shines with its excellent reliability.
From 2011 to 2015, from € 8,500
Appeared in 2011, on the basis of the second generation, this first Jazz hybrid is distinguished by its great smoothness of driving and its particularly reasonable consumption: less than 6 liters per 100 km, or even 4.5 liters light foot. If its continuously variable transmission tends to thrill the mechanics (88 cumulative hp) in the event of frank acceleration, its paddles on the steering wheel allow you to adjust the engine brake. Son compact size (3.90 m) and its maneuverability make it an accomplished urban, even if his very rigorous behavior also allows him the road stages. Its modularity is particularly successful with a retractable 40/60 bench, freeing up a flat floor, which can also be folded into a portfolio, while its roominess is also very flattering for its size. It remains to deal with cushioning lacking softness and hard plastics, well put together, but poor looking.
Reliability even higher than that of the thermal version, which is already among the references in its segment. Most of the deficiencies having been corrected before the launch of the hybrid version.
