Wonder if it is a RS model? They indicated a RS model in Japan would be released.

Its not as nice as the 2nd Gen imho. The front is OK, the sides and rear are fugly. It may grow on me, but I dont get that same 'wow its perfect' that I got with the 2nd Gen...

2014 Honda Jazz to have World’s Best Fuel Efficiency; Japanese launch in September?


Details on the 2014 Honda Jazz (or the 2014 Honda Fit) are slowly emerging. We were the first to update you about the possible design, the supposedly leaked brochure scans and in this post we will update you about the hybrid version of the Jazz.
Nikkei, the Japanese business news provider, reports that the next generation Honda Jazz would achieve the best fuel economy, not only for a Honda or a Japanese product, but in the world.
The hybrid Jazz will achieve 36km/l (102mpg) in Japan’s Transport Ministry Test, known as JCO8. Until now, the Toyota Aqua (also called the Prius city) with it’s 35.4km/l and the Toyota Prius at 30km/l bettered other the Honda products. The recently launched Accord Hybrid has a commendable 30km/l efficiency and the new Jazz will obviously be better in that respect.
It is also reported that the new Jazz would go on sale in Japan this September, while other markets such as those of North America and Europe, including India, would get the car sometime next year.

Are mid model changes really common? I'm looking to buy a fit this september, and it seems so weird to me that they'll have 6+ months without a 2014. I'm really more concerned with the potential MPG improvements if any.

There will be without a doubt improvements in MPG for the upcoming third generation Fit. Honda has incorporated their new Earth Dreams powertrain. The new technology means better MPG and more horsepower.It's also going to have a CVT transmission.The 2013 Honda Accord already has the new tech.
