New Honda Fit Leaked Before Tokyo Unveil

New Honda Fit images and powertrain info revealed ahead of today’s debut.

Images of the new Honda Jazz, known here as the Honda Fit, have leaked ahead of its Tokyo Motor Show debut.

The image shows a similar overall shape to the current Honda Fit, but with a more rounded roofline, larger headlights and a new front grill. Honda says the new Fit will “raise the bar in terms of comfort and driver enjoyment”.

Little is known about the new Fit right now, but that will change when it is unveiled in Tokyo later today (tomorrow for North Americans). Earlier this year Honda said that the Fit equivalent in Europe, the Honda Jazz, would feature a hybrid powertrain as its only engine option.

Already quite fuel-efficient, the Honda Fit is also known for its versatility and interior space. With nearly 500 litres of cargo space with the rear seats up and 1,492 litres with the rear seats folded down, the Fit is definitely a spacious vehicle.

The rear cargo area is made even more versatile thanks to Honda’s Magic Seats. Five configurations for the rear seats can be chosen to carry a variety of objects.

Honda has a number of hybrid powertrains that they could apply to the Fit. According to Autocar, the new Fit will use the dual-motor hybrid powertrain of the current Honda CR-V.

There’s still no word on whether Honda will adopt its hybrid-only strategy for North America. If they do, it will be interesting to see how they go about it without raising the Fit’s starting price.

The Toyota Prius C, currently the most affordable hybrid vehicle in Canada, starts at $22,260. A hybrid Honda Fit would be a direct competitor, but Honda would need to price it in that range to be competitive.

The current Honda Fit starts at $15,590 with top-of-the-line EX-L Navi models starting at $24,390.
