Performance is not a gimmick in Honda's newly arrived Jazz Sport Hybrid. This time, they've even included their latest 7-speed dual clutch box which is integrated with a more compact electric motor at 30ps / 160nm. This hybrid system is now twice as powerful compared to its predecessor and when combined with its petrol 1.5L I-VTEC engine, makes a total of 137ps! and yes, it will come with paddle shifters!

I-DCD 7-Speed DCT & Drive Motor

Honda calls it the I-DCD, short for Intelligent Dual-Clutch Drive Hybrid system. This is essentially a combination of drivetrain and electric drive assembly, powered by a lithium-ion battery with 1.5X the energy capacity or 50% more than its previous IMA (Integrated Motor Assist) powered predecessor, as seen in the previous Jazz or Civic Hybrid.




Drive in Full EV Mode

Yes, the Jazz Hybrid can now be driven in full electric mode where applicable. This is finally possitible with its independent positioning and functioning of both its electric motor and engine. Even at standstill in traffic, its air-con continues to blow chilled air, retaining cabin temperatures. This is possible via new motor driven air con compressor which wasn't available back in the IMA hybrid days. Gone are the days of stale air during traffic jams then.



Tried, Tested and Tropicalized


Guess what, Malaysia is the only country outside of Japan to get the Jazz Hybrid, which is known as the Fit Hybrid. With our scorching temperatures, immense humidity and peak hour traffic, it would be imperative that these JDM continue to perform here. That's exactly what the engineers at Honda Malaysia's R&D facility were busy with in the recent 2 years.

They've tested the I-DCD Jazz Hybrid out on real world local roads worth over 7000km, which consists of heavy traffic, windy road and uphill routes. They've not only deemed it feasible here, but have made adjustments to perfect the Jazz Hybrid further to cater to Malaysian needs.



Only the Hybrid Get These


Shift By Wire

Unlike conventional automatics before, there's no longer a shift gate for P,R,D in the Jazz Hybrid's gear shift console. Instead it gets the Shift by Wire which means the knob acts like a joystick, pivoting in place to your desired gear position. Much like today's BMWs or Porsches.



*ignore the Mugen shift knob, refer to the photo above to see how different and compact the Shift by Wire console typically look.

3D Speed Meter Design

The Jazz Hybrid's instrument cluster gets Honda's 3D Speed Meter multi function display which displays various details such as Energy Flow, Sport Meter, Fuel Economy, Drive Info, Customization and Eco Display

Cruise Control

There's also cruise control function in the Jazz Hybrid which should contribute to fuel efficiency.

Well nobody drives paper. And in Malaysia, the money is always on Honda because of the resale value. :rofl:

Yes less weight is always better, and the unfortunate event of using it seems so rare at least within my normal routes, hence I took it out. I just carry an electric pump.

I'm also getting old ma, already reaching what Malaysians called 'uncle' age. Eyes already cannot read the small fonts!

Usually for tubeless tyres, if kena nail the leak is slow, so if you check tyre pressure regularly should not be a problem. Unless kena cut or big holes....:smokin:

Yes, that's why I just carry an electric pump, so can temporarily handle a slow puncture, enough for me to get to a tire shop or go home first. :biggrin:
