Besides the Hybrid version, Honda also offers a European-spec Jazz gasoline engine. It is powered by either a 90HP 1.2-liter or 100HP 1.4-liter gasoline engine. The refreshed small car comes with redesigned bumpers said to reduce drag, new grille and headlights, rear lights with modified lenses and a choice of two new exterior colors Deep Sapphire Blue and Ionized Bronze.

The “Magic Seats” system is part of the standard equipment list, while the boot features a secondary underfloor storage compartment, boosting the total load capacity to 399 liters or 19 liters more compared to the previous model.
The revised Jazz is once again available with a CVT automatic transmission complete with torque converter and paddle shifters, while engineers upgraded the suspension as well.
2011 HONDA JAZZ HYBRID EUROPEAN
European-spec Honda Jazz Hybrid comes in two choices of fuel, Jazz gasoline and hybrid. The Jazz Hybrid is said to be the first B-segment car fitted with a petrol-electric powertrain and it does it without compromising the cabin space and luggage compartment.
The Jazz Hybrid managed to retain the Jazz’s flexible “Magic Seats” configuration, while offering a respectable 300-liter boot space that can be extended to a maximum of 1320 liters (measured to the roof), by mounting the battery pack under the boot floor.
Thanks to the “Magic Seats” system, the seats fold entirely flat, while their bases can be folded up in order to create more space for tall objects. The eco-friendly version comes with a reclining rear seat that can be tilted back as well, further increasing the cabin’s flexibility.
2011 Honda Jazz Hybrid’s interior is offer boasts a darker color theme, in contrast with the blue lighting of the instrument panel and center console. For the first time in Europe, the Jazz Hybrid can be also specified with leather upholstery.
