Fun or frugal?

You won't have to choose between fun and frugality when you buy a Jazz Vibe, but you will have to decide between a 1.3 litre i-VTEC engine in the Vibe, or a 1.5 litre in the Vibe-S.


Eco-friendly engine. Ego-boosting looks.

With clear blue headlights and a chrome blue finish front grille, the all-new Jazz Hybrid has unique design features for an even sharper look.


Vehicle stability assist (VSA)

AUSTRALIA'S MOST AFFORDABLE HYBRIDBased on Recommended Retail Price. Source: JATO, February 2013.
With Honda's clever IMA technology that pairs a petrol engine with an electric motor, the all‑new Jazz Hybrid uses just 4.5L per 100km. The fuel consumption figure is based on ADR81/02 combined test results. You may experience different results depending on driving conditions and the condition of the vehicle.



Honda hybrid diagram – idling


The electric motor delivers maximum torque from zero rpm to assist the engine for strong acceleration and reduced fuel consumption.

Honda hybrid diagram – acceleration


While cruising at a consistent low speed, the Jazz Hybrid's cylinders close, combustion halts and the electric motor takes over.

Honda hybrid diagram – cruising


Petrol engine efficiency is relatively high during gentle acceleration and high speed cruising. So the electric motor deactivates to save energy and the engine powers the vehicle alone.

Honda hybrid diagram – deceleration


When the petrol engine is in 'high speed valve timing mode' the electric motor assists to produce high output and powerful acceleration while limiting fuel consumption.

When the car slows, travels downhill or brakes, combustion stops in all four of the Jazz Hybrid's cylinders and the battery charges. The recovered energy is stored until electric motor assistance is required.

6. STATIONARY (idle-stop)

In optimum conditions the engine automatically enters 'idle stop mode' to cut fuel consumption and exhaust emissions to zero. An indicator light lets you know that the Jazz Hybrid is running on battery power and despite the engine being off, it's still all systems go. When the brake is released, the petrol engine comes to life, with the assistance of the electric motor.

At the heart of the Jazz Hybrid is its Integrated Motor Assist (IMA) system which partners a 1.3-litre i-VTEC 4-cylinder petrol engine with a light and powerful electric motor. It's a pairing that gives both power and the efficiency in equal measure.
