A next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure features our highest-grade steel yet. This exclusive Honda body design utilises a network of connected structural elements to distribute frontal crash energy more evenly throughout the front of the vehicle. This helps reduce the force transferred to the cabin and more evenly disperses the forces transferred to other vehicles involved.
Vehicle Stability Assistance (VSA) is another active safety feature on all new Jazz derivatives. It operates in conjunction with the Honda’s throttle control and ABS to optimise traction and control during acceleration, braking and cornering. Using data from wheel rotation, vehicle speed, steering input, lateral acceleration and yaw rate, it applies braking force independently to one or more wheels and modulates acceleration to help retain control of the car under extreme manoeuvres.
Passive safety features include dual-stage, multiple-threshold front airbags (SRS). These inflate at different rates depending on crash severity, seat-belt usage and other factors, supplementing the seatbelts to reduce the likelihood of head and upper body injuries in a collision. The side curtain airbag helps provide protection for front and outboard rear occupants in the event of a side impact.
When it comes to the peace of mind of keeping your car secure, the Jazz doesn’t disappoint. Standard security features include alarm/immobiliser, remote central locking, and auto door lock with selective unlocking.
Standard across the entire range are three-point inertia reel seatbelts with height-adjustable anchor points and child seat anchors in the rear.
The new Jazz range is still as safe as ever thanks to a host of active safety features. Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD) and Emergency Braking Assistance (EBA) help towards keeping you in control during an emergency situation. The hazard lights are also activated in an emergency braking situation thanks to Emergency Stop Signal (ESS) technology.
