Honda jazzes up the Fit for 2020 and the Tokyo auto showOctober 17, 2019
Honda will shine a spotlight on the next generation Fit at the Tokyo auto show 2019. The Japanese company has released a teaser image for the same.
Earlier estimates have been correct as the Fit, also called Jazz in other countries, is now going to have a more bulbous front. It has lost its streamlined shape and is more upright. The car’s back seems to have got some horizontal lights that are connected via trim.
The photo has confirmed that no major changes have been made to the structure, so the functionality and practicality of the car are not lost.
It would seem that the windows have been made larger in size and increase the visibility in the cabin. The Fit will show how much it has grown into its next-generation when the show opens later this month.
The teaser shows a Fit looking like a standard subcompact hatchback but pictures sneaked in Europe show a crossover trim level. The unnamed variant of the cat will be clad in wider cladding over the wheel arches and rocker panels. It also comes with a set of roof rails. The height has not been altered too much. It may have been modeled to look like the Fiesta Active.
Technical specifications have not been specified yet, but we do know that the car will be offered with a hybrid powertrain in the European market. This decision is in line with the decision of the company to promote electric cars and sustainability. Two-thirds of the sales will be made through electric car models exclusively by 2025.
The 2020 Honda Fit will be shown for the first time on the 23rd of October. The only question remaining is whether the car will sell in American markets.
