The brand new Honda Jazz Crosstar has been alongtime coming courtesy of global events, but was it worth the wait?
This is not your stereotypical Jazz, and may well attract a younger audience with it's funky looks and impressive styling and of course the addition an offroad style bodykit.
It's a bit of a beast and looks quite a bit different to the standard Jazz.
It's powered by the same powertrain, yes like the Jazz there is one to choose from the e:HEV which comprises of a 1.5 iVTEC engine, 2 high energy electric motors -one to charge and one to propel and an eCVT.
It does have a range of additions for the extra price including water repellant funky interior, 30mm higher ride height allowing you to be alittle more adventurous on your extreme picniccing and of course uprated infotainment system.

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.
