2020 Honda Fit / Jazz Spied In Standard And Crossover Trims, Shows Off New Interior

Following on from last week’s catch, our spies spotted more prototypes of the new generation Honda Fit / Jazz, including the standard variant and the more-rugged looking crossover trim model, this time, close to the Nurburgring.  (Update 4/4/2019)

It’s been several months since we last saw the 2020 Honda Fit / Jazz and now we’re getting a better look at the upcoming hatchback.

Spied undergoing testing in Europe, the redesigned model has a more expressive front fascia with larger headlights that feature three dimensional elements. They reside on either side of a new two-bar grille. Further below, the Fit has a large air intake which now extends to the outer edges of the front bumper.

Moving further back, we can see slender A-pillars and larger front quarter windows. The Fit also has curvier bodywork and an evolutionary rear end with new taillights.

Interestingly, the photos appear to show a standard model and a more rugged, off-road inspired variant. The latter has a roof rack, pronounced wheel arches and body cladding on the doors.

The latest spy photos give us our first glimpse of the interior and they reveal the model will have a new steering wheel, a recessed instrument cluster and a more modern infotainment system with a metallic frame. We can also see three large knobs which are likely for the climate control system.

Honda has been tight-lipped about the Fit, but reports have suggested the model will be offered with conventional, hybrid and electric powertrains. Spy photographers believe both these prototypes were the hybrid variant which is rumored to share its powertrain with the Insight.

As a refresher, the Insight has a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine, an electric motor, a lithium-ion battery and an electronic continuously variable transmission. This enables the model to have a combined output of 151 hp (112 kW / 153 PS) and a fuel economy rating of up to 55 mpg city.

The Fit EV, on the other hand, is rumored to have a range of approximately 186 miles (300 km). That’s shorter than the Chevrolet Bolt and Tesla Model 3, but more than the standard Nissan Leaf which can only travel up to 150 miles (241 km) on a single charge.

    I don’t think it’s a Honda but a Toyota

      Well, good point. Is there any proof that it’s a Honda?

      • roy

        Well, just look at the tail lamps

        • Knotmyrealname

          Is there a Honda badge on them?

          • roy

            No… But I’m pretty sure a lot would happily agree with me that those led patterns are a Honda thing at the moment. Case in point the CRV

          • Knotmyrealname

            I’m not challenging you, I just thought Giorgo made an interesting point. Let’s see.

  • Knotmyrealname

    Just what I always wanted on a city car – roof rails…….

    • J-Triumf

      Some of the photos don’t have the rails, so I assume it’s an option.

  • DMax

    Never liked the Fit. It looks like a mini-minivan than a small hatch.

  • J-Triumf

    I’ve always loved the Fit, especially once it adopted that smooth aerodynamic wedge shape in the second generation, and I’m glad it’s keeping that shape, especially after Honda ruined the 10th gen Civic. I don’t like how that grille tucks into the bumper in this new one, and I have mixed feelings about the switch to horizontal taillights, but beyond that this is shaping up to be a good looking hatch and I look forward to the official reveal.

    Now if only there could be a Fit Si or Type R, I’d love to get one of such for sure.

  • GiorgioN

    I think it’s the new version of the Toyota Aqua. It does not have the typical honda front with those beautiful sharp headlights of the civic,cr-v, hr-v.

  • Netsphere

    what ticks me off is how high that dash is, thank you pedpro for making the down vision so much worse

  • Stephen G

    What exactly is “crossover trim”?

    • baofe

      They shove CR-V bumpers and ~ p L a S T i C c L A d I n G ~ on it for an extra 2k.

      • Perry F. Bruns

        Is there a custom Disqus filter term I don’t know about, or is “plastic cladding” just as offensive to you as it is to me?

    • Benjamin B.

      Plastic trim at an extra cost

  • no25

    I agree with what others are saying…is this really a Honda? Picture 7 & 8 looks very Toyota. Looks like the Prius C/Aqua.

  • Benjamin B.

    The Fit/Jazz EV should be a good value next to the more expensive Chevrolet Bolt and Nissan Leaf. The 155 mile range is more than enough for most commuters. I hope the price is low enough to make the EV a worthwhile upgrade. Otherwise I would just get an Insight or Fit/Jazz Hybrid. Will the base 1.5L be available with a 5- or 6-speed still?
