High-quality photos of redesigned 2018 Honda Fit leaked

There has been some excitement when Honda revealed it was redesigning the Fit. Dubbed as the Jazz in other markets, the excitement was upped further when a brochure released for the Japanese market revealed some grainy images.

A clearer set of high quality photos though has been leaked and shows what the changes are. Based on the images, it appears that no big changes were done but the small improvements did make it appear new and fresh.

On the rear section for example, the taillights continue to have the same form but the addition of LEDs positioned vertically help give it that style. While the photos do not really reveal if any change was done on the bumper, it won’t be surprising to know that considering the initial impression, there will only be subtle modifications. On the front, the Fit now appears to be more like the Civic. Its grille has a thick crossbar and under it is the small grille. The headlights have been redesigned as well and have the L-shaped running lights which utilize LED. Its fascia has been updated as well and now puts more focus on the fog lights especially as it makes larger niches at the corners.

Honda will offer a hybrid version of the new Jazz in Europe within two years

Although its hybrid cars are not quite popular in Europe as they are in the United States, Honda will continue to offer them in Europe and announced that it will import the hybrid version of the Jazz in 2016. This means a year after the standard model goes on sale in Europe.

According to JATO Dynamics, Honda sold 4,500 units of the Jazz hybrid last year in Europe, while Toyota sold around 50,000 units of the Yaris hybrid. As you may know already, Honda stopped selling the CR-Z hybrid coupe as well as the Insight gasoline-electric hybrid in Europe due to poor sales.

The new 2015 Honda Jazz was unveiled in prototype form this month at the 2014 Paris Motor Show and the production version will arrive at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.

Paris: 2015 Honda Jazz calls itself a prototype [Live Photos]

Honda’s Euro-spec 2015 Jazz is preparing to make its debut next year probably at the Geneva Motor Show, but at the 2014 Paris Motor Show the Japanese carmaker brought a so-called concept version. Comparing with the current model, the 2015 Jazz Prototype is 15 mm longer, while the wheelbase increased by 30 mm, which means more interior space.

According to Honda, the new Jazz will arrive with space-saving layout, interior practicality and storage solutions as well as with the Honda Magic Seats. Under the hood, we find a 1.3-liter i-VTEC petrol engine bolted to a six-speed manual transmission that replaces the previous five-speed unit, or an optional CVT automatic transmission.

The latest iteration of the Honda Jazz still features the classic Jazz silhouette, but now boasts of a characteristic modern styling that includes a new face and strong lines. Since it is now underpinned by Honda's new global B-segment chassis, the new Jazz offers larger interior space, which is boosted by the carmaker’s so-called Magic Seats system. This system offers a high level of versatility and comes with range of configurations for carrying both passengers and cargo.

Honda unveiled the all-new 2014 Fit Hybrid and announced that the new car will go on sale in Japan this September. According to the official press release, the 2014 Honda Fit Hybrid is the first model from the Japanese manufacturer to be equipped with the SPORT HYBRID Intelligent Dual Clutch Drive (i-DCD).

For those who don’t know, this is Honda’s lightweight and compact one-motor hybrid system suited for small-sized vehicles. Under the hood there is a four-cylinder 1.5-liter Atkinson cycle (high expansion ratio cycle) engine, which is bolted to a 7-speed DCT system with a built-in high-output motor, and IPU (intelligent power unit) equipped with a built-in lithium-ion battery.

Moreover, the electric servo brake system increases electrical regenerative efficiency, while the fully-electric compressor reduces engine load. As a result, fuel consumption is improved by more than 35% compared to a current IMA hybrid system.

If you don’t like the current Honda Jazz/Fit then, you will have a surprise, as the Japanese manufacturer will debut a new version of its well-known model. The 2014 Honda Jazz/Fit will receive a new design inspired by the bigger Insight featuring angular headlights as well as a redesigned front grille. Still, this is not all because the 2014 Fit/Jazz will get a redesigned front bumper with bigger air inlets, new taillights and a fresh rear bumper with new air inlets.

Mugen Euro wants to build a hot, more hardcore version of the Jazz supermini. Mugen Euro, Honda’s performance tuning division based in Northampton, UK, is known for having built a supercharged version of the CR-Z hybrid that may go on a limited run. Mugen Euro has said that it seeks to build the unlikeliest of hot hatches. In Japan, Mugen has already offered several styling updates and tuning components for the Jazz (where it’s known as the Fit).

However, the upgrades to its performance are minimal. Now, Mugen Euro management seeks to boost its performance by using either the CR-Z’s supercharged hybrid powerplant or a normally aspirated, high-revving 2.0-litre VTEC unit comparable to what was used in the latest Civic Type R.

Mugen Euro’s general manager Colin Whittamore said that they’ve long wanted to create something that’s based on the Jazz. He said that it “wouldn’t be much of a stretch” for the Jazz to be powered by the 197bhp supercharged version of the CR-Z’s 1.5-litre hybrid motor. Mugen is presently dyno-testing this vehicle in the UK before it makes its public debut at the Goodwood.

If the new Jazz is one of the models that you’re considering, you’d likely be more interested in it now that the costs will be lower since it comes with three years’ complimentary servicing and a range of competitive finance options. Buying the entry level Jazz 1.2 S will make you eligible for a £800 customer saving with prices from £10,495.

Customers who are upgrading to the 1.2 S (with A/C) will only have to pay £10,995, standing for a £1,000 saving. The others in the range, including the Hybrid, will benefit from Honda’s three years’ complimentary servicing. Honda also offers the 50/50 12 month finance plan on Hybrid and 1.4-litre petrol models.

Under this plan, customers avoid monthly payments by paying half on collection and the other half a year later, with 0% APR. The last time that this offer was made on the Jazz, about 45% of customers grabbed it. A variety of flexible finance options is offered throughout the range in order to break the cost of a new car into manageable monthly payments.

Details and pricing information for Honda’s facelifted Jazz supermini were recently released. Honda has also confirmed that UK dealerships will be receiving the hybrid version of the car next February. Honda did some minimal revisions to the styling. For instance, it revised that front end to reduce the Jazz’s drag co-efficient.

In fact, the car’s Cd figure fell from 0.336 to 0.330. The dashboard got some chrome trim and the higher-spec models are offered with the option of leather seats.

Honda didn’t change the basic engine lineup of 1.2 and 1.4-litre petrols but both powerplants were tweaked to have minor reductions in CO2 emissions level and to have improved fuel efficiency.

Honda announced today that the hybrid version of the 2011 Fit/Jazz will carry a price tag of 1.59 million yen ($19,310) in Japan, which makes it the cheapest hybrid car on the market.

The Japanese carmaker is planning to sell about 5,600 units per month in Japan, but these numbers will grow as the car will be also introduced on the European market.

Currently, the leader in hybrid cars sales is Toyota, which introduced the Prius back in 1997, more than 13 years ago. Honda needs the Fit/Jazz hybrid to succeed after the Insight hybrid car lost the race with the popular Prius.

Honda unveiled the 2011 Jazz Hybrid at the 2010 Paris Motor Show, its latest Jazz that features hybrid technology. The Jazz will be equipped with Honda’s petrol-electric IMA system, giving it the recognition as the world’s first B-segment hybrid. Honda claims that the hybrid Jazz will offer lowered CO2 emissions and improved fuel economy.

The Japanese manufacturer said that the hybrid Jazz will have the same engine that powers the Insight hybrid – a 1.3-liter i-VTEC engine combined with a CVT gearbox, in a parallel hybrid system. The new Jazz Hybrid will deliver a fuel consumption of 4.4 liters/ 100 km or 64.2 mpg in the UK.

Like the Insight and Civic Hybrid models, the hybrid Jazz can run on electric motor alone under certain medium and low speed conditions. When it comes to appearance, the hybrid Jazz features revised headlights with a blue surround, clear rear lights, new front grille, restyled bumpers and a chrome tailgate garnish.

Honda announced today that it will bring the hybrid version of the Jazz, at this year’s Paris Motor Show. The new 2011 Honda Jazz Hybrid promises to be world’s first B-segment car with hybrid technology, delivering up to 64.2 miles per gallon (in the UK) or a fuel consumption of 4.4 liter/ 100 km in European cycle.

The new car will be powered by the 1.3 litre i-VTEC found on the Insight Hybrid, and will deliver only 104 g/km CO2 emissions, with 21g/km less than the current lowest-emitting 1.2-litre petrol Jazz. Regarding the fuel consumption of just 4.4 liters/100 km, this means that the new car will have a 23 percent improvement over the best-selling Jazz 1.4 ES model.

Regarding the IMA battery pack and power control of this new hybrid car, Honda says that they were perfectly integrated in the area under the boot floor, keeping the normal boot area of 300 litres and allowing the Magic Seats to fold in the same manner as non-hybrid versions. This means that the seats still fold entirely flat to provide a surprising large boot space of 831 litres.
