The Honda Jazz has always been a winner among motorists. But recently Honda took a big leap with the powertrain and gave us a hybrid version that promises better fuel consumption and overall lower running costs.
So what provoked the change? Honda knows that Motability customers are just as concerned about the environment as everyone else. So it wanted to make a car that offered all of the seating and visibility advantages of the old Jazz combined with an eco-conscious semi-electric powertrain. The new vehicle gives modern drivers the ability to make trips into town without emitting potentially harmful exhaust fumes.
The Honda Jazz Hybrid provides high levels of comfort and spaciousness that you would get from the classic Jazz but with a smooth, responsive and direct driving feel thanks to the new Hybrid powertrain.
Honda Motability cars come with all the usual perks, such as full breakdown cover, servicing and insurance all covered for you. But that makes Jazz cars on Motability so special?
Perhaps the most important feature is the Magic Seat setup which allows the rear seats of the vehicle to fold completely flat to the floor, expanding the interior luggage space from a regular 304 litres to more than 1,204 litres.
The new Honda Jazz Hybrid on Motability also comes with an automatic gearbox which takes some of the complexity out of driving. Plus you get a collision braking system, adaptive cruise and auto high beam headlights, reducing the total driver overhead. While the Honda Jazz Hybrid isn’t the swiftest vehicle in the world, great fuel consumption and practicality make it a good choice for anyone on the Motability scheme.
