The first official pictures of the second generation Honda Fit (Jazz in Europe and other worldwide markets) slipped into the internet this morning. Details are scarce for the moment, but we can tell you that the 2008 Fit / Jazz is slightly bigger than the current model measuring at 3,900 mm in length (+55 mm or 2.2-inches) and 1,695 mm in width (+20 mm or 0.8-inches) while the wheelbase (2,500 mm) is increased by 50 mm or 2.0-inches.
