All-new Fit, with four pleasing features that specifications cannot express, world premieres
The Honda Fit*1 defied common perceptions about compact cars when it was first introduced in 2001, with key features including a spacious cabin that embodied Honda’s longstanding M/M concept*2, versatile seat arrangements and outstanding fuel economy, and it became one of the models that represents the Honda brand.
Since then, the second- and third-generation models, launched in 2007 and 2013, maintained the original design philosophy and Fit evolved into a global model now being sold all around the world.
Without compromising the spacious cabin and excellent usability that has been a hallmark of each successive generation of Fit, this 4th-generation all-new Fit was developed with the intention of becoming the globally-accepted standard for compact cars suited to this new era.
As a new concept in automobile development, the development team pursued an “emotional value” which cannot be expressed numerically and embodied four dimensions of comfort that enable this vehicle to support the daily lives of customers. Moreover, the all-new Fit will come in five different types so that customers can select the model that is right for them depending on their lifestyle and life stage. Through these development efforts, Honda strives to make people’s lives with their vehicles more enjoyable.
The hybrid version of the all-new Fit will be the first Honda compact car equipped with the 2-motor hybrid system Honda developed to realize both excellent environmental performance and a comfortable driving experience at the same time, and will be introduced to the market as a part of “e:HEV”.
