    Has anyone had the chance of driving either of these? With the 1.5 hybrid i-mmd?

    It could be a CVT that actually ticks the boxes when it’s in conjunction with their direct drive thingamabobs. Malaysia already has the HR-V version as well, I’d certainly like to see that on the scheme.

    Hi,

    I believe it is a smaller version of the CRV Hybrid drivetrain so no CVT. The engine drives a generator when required that both charges the small battery and powers the primary drive which is an electric motor. At higher speeds the engine can become the primary drive using a single Speed drive. There are no gears, only an automatic clutch. Clever and seamless to the driver.

    Yes this looks very interesting and I would think very economical ?

    You’re absolutely right, but they’re still calling it ecvt on the site. Probably running out of initials! Lol. Certainly looks interesting though on got crv and jazz, hence interested if anyone has tried it yet?

    Yes, most I found on the toob tended to be by Honda dealer employees and thus were rather, unsurprisingly, positive. As a 2020 car I think public reviews are somewhat delayed, understandably, by the impact of you know what!

    Looks good to me in mid trim, got everything you would want in a compact size.

    Can’t seem point of Crosstar and it has a smaller boot.

    Bassets Honda in Swansea and Bridgend are offering £500 off the deposit of an Honda. Makes the £499 version nothing to pay. I’m in the north of Scotland sadly too far for me.

    Shaine that’s a fantastic review on the cross star it’s higher than the civic and love the magic seats can put my rollator there ! Does the civic have magic seats too ?  His mpg was fab on the road test getting 64 mpg ! And faster than a Toyota CHR too and great visibility is it in HONDA SHOWROOMS NOW ?

    Would have considered it but due to difficult parking chose a car half a metre shorter and 100mm narrower, whilst still easy for my disabled partner to be comfortable.  So as you put it, the Honda was blown out of the water for us.

    We all have to compromise unfortunately.

    Not really, seems to suit our needs well  for front space ( passenger and over 6ft driver). Boot space for folded wheelchair which is used on every outing. Auto air conditioning. Rear parking camera and sensors. Sat nav and DAB radio on large screen etc etc

    Crumbs,

    I only posted that the Jazz looked good , but wouldn’t suit us. The mpg is somewhat irrelevant on our car due to the amount it is used due to health issues.

    I hope you are as happy with the car you get or have got, we all have different requirements.

    let’s get back on subject.

    Yes of course but just a warning of the mpg to buyers who use it more I’m shocked that’s really poor but then isn’t a hybrid etc yes let’s get back on subject

    Honda cars have build quality, and that Jazz crosstar car is quite different, good visibility all around high and small. It will tick all the boxes for some people. It looks very much like a city car, it is indeed very quirky.
