The all new 4th generation Honda Fit (also known as Jazz) has leaked ahead of its world debut at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show scheduled to open its doors later this week.
The brochure of all new Honda Fit is also leaked courtesy Japanese website Creative Trend. The new Fit/ Jazz will have a softer, more sedate look while retaining the same general proportions as before. At the front, the fascia features larger, less geometric headlamps that include square projectors and U-shaped LED DRLs within the clusters. Honda’s Solid Wing Face front grille is still present here, but with a much simpler design and a slimmer front intake.
Moving along the side, the shape becomes gentler with simpler character line that runs from the top of the front wheel arches, through the door handles and leading to the rear taillights. Towards the back there are horizontal two-piece tail lights, new crease line that cuts across the tailgate and into the bumper as well as a new tailgate design.
According to information, there will be 4 trims available – Basic, Ness, Luxe and Crosstar – with the first three sharing the same A-wing-style front bumper design. Like newly introduced Freed, the Crosstar trim is for those who prefer the crossover look. This trim gets its own bumper that sports larger corner inlets, a front lip and a louvered black grille; other trim-specific cues include body cladding, silver roof rails and a two-tone paint job.
The interior also undergoes the same simplification process as the exterior. The top dash is now featureless, losing the humped cowl seen on the outgoing model due to the slimmer 7-inch digital instrument cluster display, and the top-mounted air vents have been repositioned to the sides of the infotainment system, which can go up to 9 inches in size.
The all new Honda Fit/ Jazz will likely be offered with a 1.0 liter turbo and a 1.5 liter iVTEC petrol engine. The hybrid version of the new Fit will reportedly feature the smaller version of its dual-motor Intelligent Multi-mode Drive (i-MMD) powertrain, which will replace the Intelligent Dual Clutch Drive (i-DCD).
Honda says that the new system will be even more compact, which should make for an even more spacious interior. According to the automaker the all new Fit/ Jazz will “raise the bar in terms of comfort and driver enjoyment.” The 2019 Tokyo Motor Show will be held between 24th October and 4th November where the new Fit/ Jazz will make its debut.
