Although pictures of the new Honda Fit (called the Jazz in some overseas markets) have been released on Honda’s website along with some details, its catalog with more variants has not. At least, until now. The leaked catalog shows some versions of the Honda Fit Mugen high-performance model. Featured in the catalog are an extroverted body kit, spoiler, bumper fins, and other elements. Seventeen-inch MFZ wheels complete the package.
The new Honda Fit will be more powerful than the current model. It will still feature the same fun-to-drive qualities as the current Fit, and it should still be thrifty at the gas pump.
In other models of the 2015 Honda Fit, which goes on sale in Japan a year earlier, the car will be available in Sport Hybrid trim, featuring the Intelligent Dual Clutch Drive. The Fit Hybrid will be powered by a new 1.5-liter four-cylinder Atkinson cycle engine paired with a seven-speed dual clutch transmission. Regenerative braking further helps with mileage, replenishing the battery for more time between charges.
The all-new Honda Fit is set to be released on September 5 of this year in Japan and should be making its way to the U.S. in early 2014 as a 2015 model. More information about the new Fit, as well as a full catalog, will be released as the launch date edges closer.
