2018 Honda Fit / Jazz Reveals Itself On Japanese Website

A week after grainy images of the updated 2018 Honda Fit/Jazz leaked online, a number of official images of the vehicle have surfaced thanks to a website launched for the hatchback in Japan.

As we’ve become accustomed to in recent times, the changes to this so-called ‘facelifted’ model are incredibly minor. Some of those small tweaks include new garnishing around the front grille, modified air intakes, different fog lights and a revised front bumper.

Elsewhere, we can see that the new hatchback gets different black and silver wheels, taillights inspired by the Civic and a different rear bumper. Like the vehicle that leaked, the car pictured also has black wing mirror caps and an intriguing plum-colored paint finish.

The latest reports suggest that alongside the slight exterior changes, the 2018 Fit/Jazz will have different dashboard trim and in India, come complete with Honda’s 7.0-inch Digipad infotainment system.

A number of different powertrains will be available for the updated car, including the hybrid model pictured. The most popular variant will inevitably be powered by the same 1.5-liter four-cylinder, 130 hp engine as the current model.

    This car is no longer competitive. Who would buy this compared to the new Ibiza / Polo / Fiesta / A1 to be launched this year?

    This car took a long time to reach Europe (after its launch in the USA) and arrived with un-competitive engines. Where was the new 1.0 ltire turbo, as fitted in the Civic?
    Really Honda UK should stop dreaming, get off its lazy arse and pull its finger out!

    Why Honda felt the need to update an already-brilliant car is anyone’s guess, but as another has stated, it does look a bit like a Toyota, and that’s just wrong.
