High prices may not make their minimum expenditure profitable, but sometimes everything is not an equation. Honda Jazz and Toyota Yaris Hybrid conquer by much more than saving those who practically live in their cars in the strict city.
Jazz Honda and Toyota hybrid Yaris are added as long as electrical supply to an internal combustion engine. But that, and their gasoline engines are Atkinson cycle, just like all. Sling again resorting to electrical module intercalated disk between engine and transmission response back to the concept of IMA technology, while Toyota While you could say that miniaturizes the entrails of a Prius / Auris (On power module, converter, transmission, batteries, etc.) to add the name to the Yaris Hybrid.
Different forms, same goal
So, while the Jazz just adds 14 hp and 8 Nm of torque to push its excellent gasoline engine, the Yaris can contribute up to 60 and 17.2 mkg. Performances that combine Not exactly align with their motors térmicos- to actually have two cars with a hundred horses in smaller format utility -something that more than enough average-, a priori, exquisite urban operation and performance for short breaks outside the city.
Besides the huge electrical difference (In engine and battery power, storage capacity and energy management) should also be noted that while the Yaris completely nullifies its 1.5 VVT-i when moving all-electric mode (Transmission disengages) The Jazz only nullifies the injection, keeping the internal displacement of all mechanical parts (Closing the distribution to preserve temperature in the chamber). So there are their friction and inertia that impair development "sailing"; flows more and better Yaris and using llanea, descents and approaches to traffic lights without having to rectify a gas blow, providing more savings in this way, although its main source is the ability to move in power. Up to 50 percent of the time eminently urban path can roll the Yaris with its gasoline engine off, mainly in periods of casting rolling or make it at low speed, where more "suffers" heat.
Enough power and torque, energy storage and rapid recharge capability and allow just the limitations that make in the Jazz, the electric supply is very timely and concrete, but also "sassy". Only 14 CV you really feel when present, because they are able to reduce accelerations within two seconds and recovery when you have batteries of which "feed"As these smaller and slower recharge, often leave the 1.4 i-VTEC quite often.
IMA module improved, with involvement and very favorable terrain, we see in the energy indicator which both hard to see in other Honda hybrids that energy that moves comes exclusively from its batteries. It does to start from standstill, nor can gain speed and only stay and avoid losing it. Just you manage a hundred meters but the game involves not only the intrinsic savings to the system, but which is achieved by mere involvement of the driver. And the result … Evident, improving long urban consumption of any other version of the range, but also that of saving Diesel.
Suma mechanical finesse and pleasure everywhere to be a model citizen but getting on the Yaris is to discover a product much more modernized and evolved, not necessarily more refined. With his long walks in electric mode, the Yaris leaves the city with the least expenditure among the list of cars with internal combustion engine still in tow (Hybrid or not, with the exception of plug-in) analyzed by our technical center: 3.5 liters l / 100 km, so that the repayment over other Yaris are much shorter than those of Jazz and make, therefore, in the strict city in a more profitable and efficient car.
Jazz and Yaris yields surprising in its saving mission, but go find open road means less friendly face of both cars, mainly because the operation of its continuous transmissions very often breaks the silence, comfort and naturalness. And because both are inconvenient when it rolls over 110/120 km / h. This is where the Jazz brings a plus to be able to convert your CVT in a trade with 7 stages presets that can be used to full freedom mediate the steering wheel paddles. Do not get the Honda flip the tortilla although minimizes differences in consumption and, if we manage well known batteries for times of need, does manage to improve the ability of overtaking his rival … Sometimes all is not cost saving and use, and in that sense is where the Jazz can find customers looking disassociate with exquisite and practical product, but who seek cost containment, the Yaris has proved to be the ultimate tool
From today, the Toyota Yaris Hybrid It occupies the first place in our database. The advantages of hybridization in the Jazz, only tangible in town .. almost to the level of a good Diesel.
In a nutshell
accelerations: Variable performance in the Jazz, depending on stored energy: there are up to two seconds apart (in the table, the fastest, with charged batteries). The Yaris brings more agility than other similar only during the first few meters of acceleration.
Frenada: Distances dunks, but with a different touch. Costs used to the pedal response Yaris, especially at low speed. Include the performance of a Toyota are Active with 175 mm rubber.
Loudness: Silence is rolled: the Yaris is a before and then to more or less 50 km / h, which will mean even more to take advantage of its electric mode. On the road, unpleasant "molinillos" mechanics in both cases.
Overtaking: Ineffective doping Yaris. For adding tremendous torque which brings the power unit penalizes change. Again, two distinctly different Jazz, low reserves, the 80-120 is shot 11 s.
Power and torque: Electric and thermal do not add up exactly forces but crossing yield curves and also rely on batteries that power their electrical modules. With a hundred CV, expected more direct reactions on the road, where the comfortable cruise is only 110 km / h
