introduced its fuel-saving Idle Stop technology
to the Jazz 1.2 i-VTEC to further demonstrate
the company’s commitment to reducing emissions
and improving efficiency.
The Jazz 1.2 SE
with Idle Stop delivers a combined fuel economy
of 54.3mpg and CO2 emissions of 120
g/km – representing an improvement of 3 g/km.
This drop in CO2 emissions means the
car now sits in tax band C and costs only £30 a
year to tax.
The Jazz SE with Idle Stop is available to order
now for £12,870 OTR and sits above the S grade
(with air con) in the model line up. It also
benefits from the addition of Auto Climate
Control and body coloured door handles and
technology is already a standard feature in all
Honda’s hybrid models – CR-Z, Jazz Hybrid and
Insight – as well as across the new Civic range.
The Idle Stop system improves efficiency by
automatically switching off the engine when the
car comes to a stop and is put in neutral with
the foot off the clutch. The engine springs back
into life as soon as the clutch is depressed.
