Goes on sale in Japan this September

We have seen several leaked photos with the new Fit/Jazz but these are the first ones published by Honda showing a design with some influences from the 2012 Insight with angular headlamps and a large front bumper. The back of the car looks quite busy with its Volvo-inspired taillights, ventilated bumper and the chrome trim from one taillight to the other.

These images are depicting the hybrid version which makes use of a new four-cylinder, 1.5-liter Atkinson-cycle engine working together with a high-output electric motor, lithium-ion battery and a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

Thanks to this setup, the 2014 Honda Fit/Jazz Hybrid achieves a fuel economy of 36.4 km/l (85.6 mpg US / 102.8 mpg UK or 2.7 liters / 100 km).

The 2014 Honda Fit/Jazz Hybrid comes with a choice of three driving modes: EV, Hybrid and Engine, meaning it can run as a zero-emission electric car, as a hybrid or as a conventionally-powered vehicle.

Full details will be released closer to the car’s launch in Japan scheduled for September.
