Honda fuel-saving Idle Stop technology on Jazz 1.2 i-VTEC

13 June 2012


Honda has 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 mirrors.

Idle Stop 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.
