Honda’s Idle Stop now standard on Jazz 1.2 i-VTEC SE in Europe

Honda has introduced its fuel-saving Idle Stop (start-stop) technology to the Jazz 1.2 i-VTEC in Europe. The Jazz 1.2 SE with Idle Stop delivers a combined fuel economy of 54.3 mpg UK (45.2 mpg US, 5.2 L/100km) and CO2 emissions of 120 g/km, representing an improvement of 3 g/km.

For UK drivers, this drop in CO2 emissions means the car now sits in tax band C and costs only £30 a year to tax.

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 restarts as soon as the clutch is depressed.
