Since it initially went on sale as a 2007 model, the Honda Fit has been among our preferred little cars, and its mix of sporty handling, fantastic fuel economy, and unequaled usefulness has made it a devoted following. It was last redesigned for the 2015 model year, and we’re delighted to see that Honda has another generation in advancement.
2021 Honda Fit Spy Shots
The prototype seen here was shot by one of our spy professional photographers in Europe, so it’s not technically the next-gen Fit. There, they call it the Jazz, and there are no guarantees that our variation will be exactly the very same as Europe’s. Design-wise, there should not be any considerable differences between the two cars, however.
As you can see, Honda won’t be making any extreme changes to the shape of the next-gen Fit. It’s still a little hatchback with a steeply raked windscreen and an A-pillar that extends far toward the front end, although the total style appears to have actually gotten rounder and perhaps a little stubbier. Look carefully at the headlights, and it appears the real estate shape will be more angular than it appears like in the beginning glance with the camouflage in place.
If you look through the photos, you’ll also observe that there are two different Fit prototypes here. The one with the easier grille stays with the standard Fit formula, but the one shown here appears to be some crossover-fied Fit, total with flared fenders, door sills, and a roof rack. We’re not sure what Honda is preparing here, or if this version (could it have all-wheel drive?) will even come to the U.S., however, it would make good sense provided the similar approach by other makers.
2021 Honda Fit Engine
There’s a good possibility Honda will offer a hybrid variation of the new Fit, as well as a fully electrical variation, in worldwide markets. It stays to be seen if Honda will sell more than one version of the Fit here in the U.S., though, as small car sales are much lower in our neck of the woods than in Europe.
