For nearly two decades the Honda Jazz has been a brilliant choice and unquestionably, the latest fourth-generation Jazz is arguably the boldest yet, highlighting a more distinctive kei car-like design, mandatory hybrid powertrains and an overhauled interior. However, this time, the Japanese automobiles manufacture, Honda, has broadened the range of the Jazz model, to include an exclusive and fashionable new Crosstar version.
Honda are aware that small-car buyers are increasingly tempted by baby SUVs, and the firm is trying to cater for some of them with the Jazz Crosstar. This exciting version adds a touch of SUV appeal to the Jazz formula, with raised-height suspension, body cladding and roof rails. Like the Jazz, it’s offered in hybrid form only.
The New Honda Jazz Crosstar 2020 is on its way to Malta, to the showrooms of GasanZammit Motors Limited in Mrieħel. No doubt, the previous models of Honda Jazz have always been popular with the older generation and the new Jazz Crosstar stands out with its sporty crossover looks. A new range of two-tone finishes complement the distinctive style. The increased ride height, distinctive front grille and integrated roof rails give the Crosstar a more rugged, SUV inspired appearance.
What makes the Honda Jazz Crosstar inimitable and attractive is the brand-new design philosophy that it follows. The Japanese automaker has taken inspiration from everyday life and objects and coined the design philosophy “Yoo no bi”. According to Honda, there is beauty in everyday things, and this beauty further boosts itself with the passage of time. The Honda Jazz Crosstar flaunts a dual-tone appearance with a long roof-line, increased ride height, water-resistant upholstery, short nose, black cladding all-around, two-tone roof rails, and a sporty shark fin antenna.
The Jazz Crosstar is marginally larger than the standard Jazz – height increases 30mm to 1556mm, width goes up 31mm to 1725mm, and length is boosted 46mm to 4090mm. The ride height itself goes up 37mm thanks to a marginal increase in suspension travel.
