2020 Honda Fit/Jazz Spied For The First Time In Europe



As reports have it, when the new Fit/Jazz debuts sometime in 2020, it will feature both gasoline engines and hybrid options. Sources from Japan claim the new Jazz Hybrid will get the same powertrain from the new Insight. There will also be an all-electric Jazz sitting at the top of the range.

A Nikkei report from earlier this year said the upcoming Fit EV would cost approximately $18,000 and would feature a small battery enabling a driving range of around 300 km (186 miles). The model will debut in China in the first half of 2020 but details about its availability in the United States and Europe remain scarce for now.

Lack of a 3/4 rear window bugs me, but then again it wouldn't do any difference with visibility...

I like the shape better than the GK already.

I hope we get the Hybrid variant here in the US as well, even though I'm doubtful.

It looks like it won't have the mile high GK taillights. That would be a big plus in my book. Overall, it looks less like a micro-van maybe? That would also be good.

Drivetrain options will be the big question. A 6-speed manual with proper gearing would be a huge step up.

I'm not going to really comment on any direction as far as styling ques based on that picture. I mean who knows?

Rumors about the EV Fit, a Hybrid Fit...are more interesting because I think it reveals the direction Honda wants to take the model line. From Gen 2-Gen 3, I think we saw a necessary raising of the bar, in terms of available technology, amenities, and a homogenization in search of more comfort.

An $18000 EV, a Hybrid, would suggest to me the priority with the entire line is heading towards fuel efficiency, green cred, And perhaps away from standards of comfort and performance as top priority.

I mean it's always been an efficient small car.

Hell, they've offered Hybrid variants in FWD and AWD in Japan for ages.

Let the speculation begin!
It looks like this new iteration is getting close to production. Will there be a release in Fall 2019? If so, will the rollout be world wide,or will it start in Japan before other countries see the new model?
BTW, FitFreak scooped Temple of VTEC on this news.

I tried to enhance some of the lines to get a better idea of the shape. Looks like they are going with a smoother/rounded design. Interesting bulge at the rear doors. Side mirrors lowered like current gen to enhance visibility(?), wish it was straight like 1st and 2nd gen. Wonder if we will get a regular gasoline vtec engine this time around or perhaps another ED type. Exterior looks complete so hope to get more pictures in the near future.

Has anyone gathered any more info on the 2020 Fit? Looks like historically they debut around June or July? It looks road ready in the camouflage photos. With the new trade agreement I heard that it's possible production could move back to Japan.
