Honda Jazz Towing Specifics
The Honda Jazz was first introduced in 2001 by the Japanese manufacturer as a subcompact car, designed with decent towing capabilities. We will cover the towing specifics of this model below.
Honda Jazz Towbar Electrics Kits
It is recommended that all tow bars fitted to a Honda Jazz vehicle are done so with a dedicated electrics kit, rather than a universal electrics kit. A dedicated electrics kit not only ensures all modern features such as; trailer stability and parking sensors are functional but also helps to keep your vehicle's warranty unaffected.
We offer both universal and dedicated electrics kits for the Honda Jazz vehicle towbars, but be aware that universal electrics kits can invalidate any manufacturer warranty your vehicle has and may also require a bypass relay.
Check your Honda warranty for more information.
All tow bars for the Honda Jazz 2002-2008 models will not require a bypass relay if universal electrics are fitted.
All tow bars for the Honda Jazz 2008-2015 and 2015 onwards models will require a bypass relay if universal electrics are fitted.
A bypass relay works by powering what it is you are towing through transferring power straight from the battery instead of taking too much current away from your vehicle.
Whereas a dedicated system works in harmony with your vehicle's ECU and all of its functions.
This is the coding of the ECU to accept the dedicated system, this updates your vehicles software to run smoothly with the new towbar.
All Honda Jazz models will not require coding.
Coding is used to update your vehicles software in order for it to run coherently with the new towbar through the dedicated electrics.
Depending on the towbar, Honda Jazz models will require a bumper cut. A bumper cut is when a fraction of the vehicle's rear bumper is cut in order to fit the towbar.
All Honda Jazz models have towbars that require non-visible and visible bumper cuts.
Nose weight is the amount of weight pushing down on the tow ball, it is important not to exceed the nose weight set on the tow bar, failure to do so could damage the car chassis and/or tow bar mounting points. Nose weight varies depending on the towbar you choose and are displayed under each tow bar below.
All Honda Jazz 2002-2008 models have a nose weight up to 70kg.
All Honda Jazz 2008-2015 models have a nose weight of 70kg up to 80kg.
All Honda Jazz 2015 onwards models have a nose weight of 70kg up to 95kg.
Towing weight is the weight that a Honda Jazz vehicle can tow safely, without any risk of damaging the vehicle. Towing weights are bar specific and displayed below each towbar.
For a Honda Jazz 2002-2008 vehicles, the towbars have a towing weight capacity of up to 1000kg.
For a Honda Jazz 2008-2015 vehicles, the towbars have a towing weight capacity of 1000kg up to 1500kg.
For a Honda Jazz 2015 onwards vehicles, the towbars have a towing weight capacity of 1000kg up to 1400kg.
You will need to check the towing limit for your Honda Jazz vehicle model as it may not be able to tow up to the weight limit that the tow bar can tow.
