      Honda Motor Co., Ltd. held the world premiere of the all-new Honda Fit at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show.

      Without compromising the spacious cabin and excellent usability that has been a hallmark of each successive generation of Honda 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 be better able to support the daily lives of customers. Moreover, the all-new Honda 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.

      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 Honda's e:HEV models.

      Comfortable view

      The all-new Honda Fit features a front pillar with a cross-sectional structure that is different from previous generations of Fit and yet realizes a structure which enables impact energy to flow to the vehicle body in the event of a collision. While ensuring collision safety performance without compromise, this newly-designed front pillar realizes overwhelmingly wide and superior frontal visibility compared to that of previous Fit models.

      Moreover, the instrument panel features a flat-topped design which emphasizes horizontal and straight lines, and windshield wipers are positioned to be barely visible from inside the cabin, which also enhances a comfortable view while driving.

      Seating comfort

      As for the front seats, the all-new Honda Fit will be the first Honda model to feature a new-generation body stabilizing seat that Honda developed while envisioning application for its high-class sedan models. The planar support structure of the seat stabilizes the body and makes long driving less tiring and enables the user to enjoy the soft feeling of the seat.

      The rear seats of the all-new Fit continue to feature seat arrangements as versatile as that of the previous generation Fit and realize seat comfort equivalent to high-class sedan models by adopting a larger and thicker seat pad which offers stress-free seating even for adult passengers.

      Ride comfort

      Equipped with Honda's new, more compact 2-motor hybrid system, the all-new Honda Fit will drive smoothly by an electric motor for virtually all situations of everyday driving and realize outstanding environmental performance as well as excellent ride comfort with powerful acceleration and comfortable driving.

      Usability

      While maintaining the spacious cabin from previous generations of Fit, the all-new Fit features enhanced usability which supports people's mobility, including a stress-free layout of storage areas that ensure comfort for all occupants during everyday driving as well as over long-distances.

      Five types of the all-new Honda Fit providing unique individual characteristics

      BASIC - The basic type of the all-new Fit offers both high-quality design and occupant comfort. This type will feature a simple and endearing design including a front face design with a gentle look and seamless and flowing exterior form.

      HOME - This type strives to realize a relaxing and carefully-designed space with high visual and tactile quality by coordinating colors and materials, including natural-looking fabric seats made with high-quality materials, a genuine leather-wrapped steering wheel and Prime Smooth™ soft padding.

      NESS - This type features exciting color coordination and adopts water-repellent materials for the seat surfaces and soft padding on the instrument panel. It is a sporty and fashionable type which will enable customers to enjoy driving just like they enjoy fitness and sports.

      CROSSTAR - This type features an exterior design developed exclusively for the CROSSTAR as well as 16-inch aluminum wheels, which look good both in city and outdoor environment. As for the interior, water-repellent materials are used for seat surfaces and soft padding on the instrument panel. This type projects an enhanced image of compact and yet tough vehicle.

      LUXE - Striving to create a space where people can spend elegant and comfortable time, standard genuine leather seats were designed as an exclusive feature for this type while pursuing excellence in visual and tactile quality. For the exterior, platinum-style chrome plating and 16-inch aluminum wheels were adopted to increase the high quality feel.

      Further advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies

      A front wide view camera which covers a wide area in front of the vehicle will be newly added to the Honda SENSING® advanced safety and driver-assistive system installed to the all-new Honda Fit. By combining the front wide view camera and eight sonar sensors mounted in the front and back of the vehicle, the all-new Fit features further enhanced existing Honda SENSING functions as well as the new short-distance collision mitigation braking system. The Honda SENSING is available as standard equipment on all types of the all-new Fit.

      First past the post!

      Now that that's out of the way, I like how the design is getting more and more cute as we go. The first gen actually looked cool.



      I love that they still sell these, though.

      Looks like they axed a lot of the cheap plastic found in 1st generation Fit dashboards that belongs in a Chevette.

      Adding more comfortable seats is needed. They were real torture thrones.

      Hopefully Honda still offers a manual transmission.

      Between the front and rear door is the B pillar. Behind that, the C pillar is at the back of the rear door and behind that, the D pillar is at the rear of the car.

      At the front of the front door, in black on this vehicle, is the A pillar.

      So then what do you call the body-colored pillar at the windshield? The α ("alpha") pillar?

      Or, is the windshield always where the A pillar is, meaning this car is a hatchback with an E pillar?



      Also...a tacked on touch screen with a blockoff plate? Ouch

      Wow, I didn't even catch that the first time. So it's got some Fiat 500L going on with the double split A pillar. I would assume they just call that whole thing the A pillar, regardless of 75% of it being glass.

      I reiterate...woof.

      It looks over-inflated and the dashboard appears to be misaligned with the center console.

      Not a clue, but I'm going with this.

      Not feeling it. They'll sell a sh¡tload of them, because Honda, but even if I was in the market for a small econobox-type cargo/people carrier... No.

      The seats look great, though...

      Yeah, I like the new Yaris better than this, though this is definitely immediately recongizable as a Honda. The new Yaris even has a double wishbone rear end on the hybrid (and you know the eventual GR trim).

      I bet it will have a different fascia on the US model - but hopefully no fake vents like the Civic.

      There's always been different bumpers for the USA editions which give it a more finished look in my opinion. With the Fit getting the Honda family smashed nose look below the hood, I suspect this will look a bit better with US-spec bumpers. I also doubt the two-tone look will make it to the US and guarantee the blank-plate infotainment is not coming to the US. The US market basically only gets the middle trim levels and up compared to Japan and other parts of the world which get the Fit with smaller engines and less equipment in their base models.

      Overall - meh. I'll reserve final judgement for when we get the US specs.

      In Japan, the Fit/Jazz is more of a mini-MPV than a regular subcompact hatchback. It's just that the distinction between those classes is hard to see, especially in the US where mini-MPVs don't exist.

      The proportions on the JDM models make them look cute.
      Add another 4 inches of ungainliness to the front end, and you'll get the oddball US model.

      American Honda is still showing the 2019 on their website - is the US getting the next-gen Fit for 2020?

      YES!!!! The seats of the current Fit & Civic are why I had to pass on them as a new car to teach my kids stick. I have a year before I need to buy, so if they offer this with a manual it’ll definitely be at the top of my list for consideration!

      didn't see any mention of gearbox, but it looked like a japanese press release, down to the strange trim levels which i doubt they'll confuse us with, but who knows. maybe we'll get the (loch)ness model with the manuel, or the home model. hopefully not just the basic model... hopefully they keep the manual, since the 2015 fit EX manuel i test drove was fun to drive, and i wouldn't want the CVT with that little engine. the manual i drove (6 speed) also didn't seem to be stuck at super high revs in 6th gear, but i didn't take it on a real highway (drove maybe 60 mph tops). felt like the engine was bigger than a 1.5 litre n/a engine, even with 3 people in the car. car also felt much bigger than it was on the inside.
