Honda has confirmed with a few pictures and an official statement that it will soon show a slightly updated version of the Fit model (in Europe as the Honda Jazz) in Japan.
The Fit for the Japanese market comes with slight visual changes and increased hybrid drivetrain power. There is also a new version of the Fit RS with a slightly more aggressive style.
The current generation of this model appeared in 2019, in standard and Crosstar editions with a (pro) off-road look.
This refined model will start in Japan in the fall, in Basic, Home, Luxe, Crosstar and RS versions.
Each of the mentioned versions has specific stylistic details and small differences compared to the model before the facelift, although the new sporty RS still attracts the most attention. Fit e:HEV RS will be the sportiest Fit in the range, but only in terms of visual performance.
Anyway, the Fit e:HEV RS gets a black honeycomb front fascia, a redesigned bumper with larger openings, red RS badges, more prominent side skirts, a rear roof spoiler, larger alloy wheels, contrast stitching on the leather steering wheel and a new drive mode selector.
The rest of the interior is unchanged, including a 7.0-inch digital instrument cluster and a 9.0-inch touchscreen.
Honda does not mention whether this version may have received a modified suspension or more power compared to other variants.
While not divulging details, Honda says the e:HEV system in the facelifted Fit provides more power and improved throttle response. It should be noted that Japanese buyers can get the Fit both in the classic SUS version and with 4×4 drive, while European buyers have no choice because the Jazz on the Old Continent is offered in hybrid form and with front-wheel drive.
The current Fit / Jazz e:HEV produces a combined output of 80 kW/109 PS and 253 Nm of torque. Although it has not yet been confirmed, this facelifted model could possibly have 96 kW/131 PS and 253 Nm of torque. More information about the modified Fit will be announced in the coming months.
As expected, changes like the Japanese Fit will be made later on the European Honda Jazz.
