The Japanese compact car Honda Jazz is currently in its fifth generation since 1991. The Jazz has also been sold in Germany since 2002 and became a Honda bestseller in the first few years. The new self-charging electric hybrid is equipped with the hybrid system i-MMD (intelligent multi mode drive). In the current version, the body has become noticeably more rounded and has been given clearer contours with the new front. For the starting price of 22.250 euros, Honda relies on a comparatively high level of technical equipment and low CO2 values in everyday life. During the test, we focused on suitability for everyday use.
The latest edition of the Yaris continues a concept that has been tried and tested for 22 years. An internal combustion engine continues to serve as the basis for the small car with full hybrid drive.

The full hybrid version is currently the best-selling model. A look into the modifications of the fourth generation of the Yaris.
With the current CR-V in its hybrid version, Honda relies on a combination of a powerful electric motor with 184 hp and 315 Newton meters of torque, which is coupled with an in-line four-cylinder internal combustion engine with 145 hp. This drive system is coupled with a continuously variable CVT transmission and is controlled by the i-MMD (Intelligent Multi Mode Drive) used by Honda. With three driving modes, all everyday requirements are to be regulated automatically.
