2020 Honda Jazz / Fit Makes Early Appearance Ahead Of Tokyo Debut

Images of the new generation Honda Jazz / Fit have found their way online via what looks like an official model guide in Japanese, revealing not only the design of the new sub-compact but also its trim options for the Japanese market.

As expected, the new Honda Jazz / Fit will mostly retain its familiar looks, only now it features a much cleaner design aided by a body-colored panel instead of a traditional front grille and modern LED headlights. The rear end features a pair of slim taillights, as expected from our recent spy shots.

The interior will remain one of the most practical places to sit in the segment, with the dashboard adopting simple lines and way more tech features than before; this includes a standard 7-inch digital instrument cluster and a new infotainment system with connected services. The new Jazz / Fit is also getting the same, two-spoke steering wheel we first saw in the electric Honda e.

The images come from the Japanese Creative311, which also mentions that the new Honda Jazz / Fit is indeed getting a new hybrid powetrain that combines a 1.5-liter petrol four-cylinder with dual electric motors, which will be the only option for European customers.

The range of the new Honda Jazz / Fit in its home market in Japan will be divided into four trim levels: Basic, Ness, Luxe and the SUV-like Crosstar. Ness models will offer more vivid color combos both inside and out, as well as sporty 16-inch alloy wheels. Luxe models come with a bicolor leather interior and model-specific 16-inch alloy wheels.

The crossover-like Crosstar models are the only ones to get a proper-looking grille up front, together with additional body cladding, roof rails and a slightly increased ground clearance.

The 2019 Tokyo Motor Show opens its gates on October 23, so stay tuned for the full details on the 2020 Honda Jazz / Fit.

H/T To Alexander!

    So there will be a “FIT” version! So maybe it will come to the US.

    • Joe

      Eh? A “FIT version”? That’s literally the normal JDM model name for every generation so far.

  • That’s disappointing.

  • no25

    I looks like a huge step backwards in design compared to the current one especially the interior.

  • Bill Nguyen

    Surprisingly it looks nice and clean. Not too cyborgy.

    • jfalckt

      Agreed, it’s not going to win a beauty contest, but it’s cleaner and less blobby than I expected.

  • THATS MY Story! I posted here, way before you! Same with the MX-30! So bigot of you!

    • Netsphere

      which moron down voted him? he genuinely posted it before them.

      • Mike anonymous

        I had never seen a down voted comment on this site until about last week. Now I am unsure if it was prior to Site User “SeanSweeney”, But this is true he did post this prior to the site themselves posting about it.

        • Netsphere

          yeah seems like a new feature to help troll each other.

        • Joe

          The feature was always there, just now it tends to show how many users have downvoted it now (never used to) so it’s more obvious.
          I replied to the original thread of the magazine cover on the Mazda EV article, SeanSweeney posted it, and the image itself it came from a Japanese source I have since seen also.

      • Bananarama

        It doesn’t make them “his story.” These leaks have been around the web for over a week. Unless they’re his photos, it’s not his.

    • MarketAndChurch

      If it makes you feel better, I posted the first pic, the live one, and no credit. I got them from Burlapp, they’ve been up for 3 weeks now https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/505c228b0c246d16cf6feb37c96c2a801c9c87c2840d997f620d6d139cb54950.jpg https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/626b52b4625119952770cb9a6f97b50bdf58931ed567ebc3b581cf79e702b366.jpg

      • bro, that car is soo much Photoshopped

        • MarketAndChurch

          Yeah but it came out 1 week before your magazine cover was leaked.

    • no25

      I’ll be honest I saw you post them first, and I also agree it’s disrespectful of C – S for taking credit without even thanking.

  • Yooke36

    I love that interior

  • Wayne Alan Carr Heyes

    The interior yes the exterior oh god no

  • eb110americana

    Just once, I want Honda to design a Fit that doesn’t look like a penalty box for people who can’t afford something better. It’s actually a great car: Efficient, lots of room, fun, affordable, reliable–but why does it have to look like an alien cartoon character? The current car finally ditched the 7-sizes-too-large headlights, but then the rear end is a mess, and the side isn’t particularly good either. This new one looks to go back to headlights that nearly reach the windshield. I wish they would try to design something classic that will look good in 50 years, instead of trendy, disposable transportation.

  • Frase

    Oh come on, when are we going to get a Jazz that can at least look vaguely cool!?

  • SteersUright

    Looks about as sexy as a shrunken mini-van. I get that its supposed to be small and practical, doesnt mean it has to be ugly.

  • getoffme

    This is a joke compared to the new Yaris.

    • Alduin

      Are you talking about other markets Yaris or the USD and Mazda made reskinned 2 Yaris?

  • Thetruthísntalwayspopular

    Looks like its going back to shades of the mk2. I don’t dislike it, but that facia offset looks very large for such a small car.

  • Paul

    Compared to what it was the thing is awful.

  • klowik

    worse than the current one..did the Chief designer relegate the Jazz design to some Amateur designer?

  • Robert

    Wow, congrats Honda for officially making it the least desirable city car.

  • Eythan Aldrich

    because your profile name says it all lmao

  • Knotmyrealname

    I don’t mind it actually, but as is with most Hondas, without a badge on the front or rear, you wouldn’t have a clue who made it. No identity at all.

  • Mike S

    What is it, a new Pokemon character or a baby panda bear with wheels? I’ve every confidence it’ll be a hit in Japan/Asia, which is just fine and dandy. Rumors are afloat that this new Jazz won’t be offered in the ‘States, and will be “replaced” with Honda’s HR-V. Gotta say that those Magic Seats are super awesome, and if the rumor is true, the only way to have them will be with the HR-V.

    • Alduin

      I think the HRV is a joke.

  • Alduin

    I miss the first gen Fit that was the best Fit Honda ever made. The these newer models are so bloated looking and doesn’t even look like they’re fun to drive anymore compared to the first gen.

  • no25

    That doesn’t matter. He still sent in the photo. They just went off found the link. Without his post, they never may have thought to look for the original photo.
