2020 Honda Jazz / Fit To Be Available With 2-Motor Hybrid System

The latest-generation Honda Jazz / Fit has been unveiled at the Tokyo Motor Show.

Honda’s new Jazz / Fit looks very similar to the outgoing model and appears to have similar proportions. Depending on the market, the new car will be available in Basic, Home, Ness, Crosstar, and Luxe trim levels.

Upgrades enjoyed by the Home model over the Basic include a genuine leather-wrapped steering wheel and natural-looking fabric seats made from high-quality materials. One step up in the range takes you to the Ness that includes water-repellent materials for the seat surfaces and soft padding on the instrument cluster. Meanwhile, Honda Jazz / Fit Crosstar models include 16-inch aluminum wheels while the range-topping Luxe adds genuine leather seats and platinum-style chrome plating across the exterior.

Powertrain options have yet to be announced but Honda has said the hybrid version will come outfitted with its latest 2-motor hybrid system also set to be used by the Accord. All new models, regardless of trim level, come standard with the latest Honda SENSING advanced safety and driver-assistive system that combines a front wide-view camera with eight sonar sonars across the front and rear of the vehicle to provide various driver assistance systems, including a short-distance collision mitigation braking system.

Another headline for the new Jazz / Fit is the implementation of Honda’s new CONNECT onboard communication module that allows for remote control of some vehicle functions via smartphone, a support service that connects vehicles to a support center in an emergency, and a security ‘rush over’ service that dispatches a security guard if “an abnormal situation occurring to the vehicle is detected.”

Sales of the new Honda Jazz / Fit will start in February 2020 although the company has yet to confirm which markets will get the car. U.S. availability also remains unknown.

    While it doesn’t look as good as the outgoing version (which itself is one of the better looking Hondas ever and doesn’t deserve the hate I’ve seen going around), this new version still looks pretty good as well, and better than I thought it’d be based on the camo spy shots; it’s good to see at least some new cars still going for that smooth aerodynamic “fast front” shape in spite of the current long-hooded genericizing trends.

    The interior is alright, but with that much dashboard I wish Honda would bring back the upper tier digital speedometer that they had for the FG Civics and 2nd gen Insight, it’d be more ergonomic and look a lot better too.

    I am disappointed as it does not look appropriate for 2020 model, most rivals look more modern. The dashboard design is so reminiscent of the 2007 Lancer.

    I like it. And not because it’s a Honda (which on another page I mentioned that the car looked like it could have been made by any manufacturer), but because it just looks nice. Appropriate for the segment, and with nice interior trim options. Thank god there are other options apart from black on black.
    And I’d just have the base model thanks.

    Nice . it harks back to the original ‘Jazz’ & looks way way better than their current horrible effort

    It’s far less visually offensive than the outgoing car, but it looks oddly dated.

    Let’s just be thankful that it’s far more restrained and classy than the riot of creases, lines and superfluous, tacked-on trim pieces that Honda seems to have favoured recently.

    I like it, but in the same dorky way I love the Citroen C3. Great hire car but I wouldn’t buy one. Check out the back seats though, come with Labrador spec fold up seats.

    They just went simply 10 years back… GOOD JOB HONDA!

    Don’t laugh, most designers take cues from nature.

    I guess the manual transmission is toast. Oh, well…..
