Honda Plans 3 Fit Variants, with Sedan, Crossover and Hatchback

Honda will Begin Building Fits, i.e., Sedan at the New Plant in Mexico in 2014

SOURCE: Automotive News -- December 7, 2012 - 12:38 pm ET

UPDATED: 12/07/2012 1:18 pm ET

TOKYO -- Honda Motor Co. plans to build three variants of its Fit compact, including a sedan version, at its Mexican plant currently under construction.

The two other variants are the standard hatchback and a Fit-based crossover, said an executive familiar with the plans.

Honda is considering selling all three in the United States, the person said. The company thinks a general shift toward small cars may fuel U.S. demand for a sedan-styled Fit. Honda currently sells a Fit-based sedan, called the City, in Asia.

A Honda source confirmed that a Fit-based crossover would be the second vehicle from the Mexican plant, but declined comment on a sedan variant.

The Mexican factory, scheduled to open in 2014 with annual capacity for 200,000 vehicles, expects to deliver as much 30 percent of its output to the Mexican market, the person said.

In October, Honda President Takanobu Ito told Automotive News the vast majority of the plant's output would go to the United States. But he declined to give figures.

The outlook implies a big Mexican sales surge for Honda.

In 2011 Honda sold only 36,209 vehicles in Mexico. This year sales were up 53 percent to 42,933 units through October. Adding 60,000 would more that double Honda's volume.

Honda's new Mexico plant, its second in the country, plays a key role in Ito's plan to lift North American sales 18 percent to 2 million units in the fiscal year ending March 31, 2017.

The Fit is expected to be the brand's fastest growing nameplate in that period, after a redesign scheduled for next year.

Producing the Fit in Mexico will give dealers more Fits to sell unburdened by the unfavorable dollar-yen exchange rate. The arrival of additional body-style variants also will help.

Elsewhere in the world, Honda already sells a Fit wagon, minivan and sedan. Honda has said it plans to add a crossover, but it has declined to say if it would come to U.S. showrooms.

In October, American Honda Motor Co. CEO Tetsuo Iwamura said the Mexico plant will build "multiple" derivatives of the Fit, but declined to specify what versions are planned.

After a lot of well deserved excitement paid to the completely NEW for MY13 Honda Accord and beautifully redesigned Crosstour, forthcoming 2014 Accord Hybrid duo, '13 Civic line-up and all new elegant 2014 Acura RLX sedan and state-of-the-art NSX sports car, it's extremely rewarding to hear of at least two (2) new variants to perhaps my favorite of all recent Honda products, the roomy little sizable Fit five door hatchback.

I hope you, too, enjoy the prospect of seeing each of the three (3) models highlighted in today's breaking news story sold here in North America as reported by Automotive News after my Honda insider friend shared with me as "fact" along with the possibility of a coupe, three door hatchback and convertible.

An amazing vehicle! The crossover would make the most sense aside from the great five door that already exists given its amazing flexibility but there are many that should like the traditional look and trunk of a four door sedan. Choice is key in this segment, I think.

I love the idea of a Fit-sized CUV - and I do think the Twist is cool - I just hope the next gen has a little more unique style to it. I've been interested in this type of product since Honda showed the Chinese Li Nian concept a few years ago. Kind of like a mini X6.



Also a fan of the JDM Toyota Urban Cruiser, which is essentially just a lifted Scion xD, similar to the Fit Twist.

1. I think the Fit- derived crossover would be similar in idea to the Fit Twist in Brazil, but very different in execution!

2. Thanks for reminding us the concept in China.

Fit hatchback's functionality is simply unbeatable. The sedan can never match it.

But if you've seen Honda city (sold in most asian countries) it is pretty stylish little sedan.

There are people who prefers sedans, although I prefer a Hatchback.

I am one of the few that prefer the stuff in my trunk space don't intrude into my passenger space lol. Also because it is lower and can be more aerodynamic.

But the hatch is definitely VERY functional.

With many, if not most families needing more than one vehicle these days I would like to think not everyone wants two of the same body style. Even better put, there might not be the true need for more than one hatchback/wagon or crossover/SUV. I have a crossover-like vehicle and a four door sedan as countless others do, too. Variety is key and choice even in a Fit-sized automobile is awesome and actually practical in-and-of-itself. Good thinking, Honda-Acura, since many drive an Acura and a Honda or more :0)

I would take the hatch version over the sedan version of a car any day. The insane practicality hatchback offers for relatively small cars outweighs most of the negatives. Also, I prefer the styling of hatchbacks over sedans (for example, the Ford Focus and Fiesta. The sedan versions are hideous.)

Well it depends on what kind of hatch... the Honda Fit / Jazz is very good example, but my wife's Daihatsu Boon clone (hatch), is not a good example.. you can't fit 4 people + their (big) luggages for example, some of the luggage has to sit on the people. Either that or carry less people + luggage or fold down the seat carry all the luggage minus people. Or put luggage on the roof. It is only good car for space (parking) and city driving. But it is also very wide and also makes it difficult to park (for some people in some cases..)

And the Honda City is a good example sedan, other cars this size is not. The City's trunk is bigger and deeper than the Accords and you can fit everything you want into it (I once fit my grandmother's wheelchair + all my faimly luggage into it, still with space for more). The Toyota Vious which is competing with the City for example, can't even fit much into the trunk, one golf club is enough to fill it.. it as useless as the above Boon clone hatch.

Based on the fact that virtually all of Honda's concepts have been slightly dressed up versions of production vehicles, I'm fairly confident that the Jazz/Fit unveiled in Tokyo will look like a lowered version of the Urban SUV Concept.

I really really like this design. The longer, taller hood and body creases give it a much more expressive presence than the current Fit/Jazz. As much as I admire the engineering in the current Fit, I am not a big fan of the exterior.

This may be Honda's most important launch this decade. I think it will help revive sales in Europe, reinforce Honda's position in North America, and build new markets in developing nations. It is the one vehicle that weirdly seems to work everywhere, because it is small on the outside, huge on the inside, and fun to drive. For the U.S. market, the biggest complaint about the Fit was NVH from the engine at highway speeds. If Honda can fix this with a higher-torque engine and CVT and 7DCT w' appropriate range of gearing, I think they can easily put popular hatchbacks like the Nissan Versa and Ford Fiesta on the defensive.

They also need to address the ride quality for the 3rd-gen Fit. After driving for awhile in the current Fit you just feel beat up when you get out of it. Also a must have is a driver's seat height adjustment! Instead of sitting in the seat I feel like I'm perched on top of the seat in the current model.

The comments on suspension and conveniences raise an interesting point: the Fit has traditionally been American Honda's "budget" model, probably because it was the smallest car in the lineup. In the USDM Fit, stuff was probably left out to squeeze it in below the Civic. Honda shouldn't cheap out on the next USDM Fit just because it is the small car. I expect that there will be a "budget" trim, but I hope there will be trims where a high level of equipment is available.

Better shocks and an independent rear suspension would improve the ride quality. Some Fit owners at fitfreak.net thought the OEM shocks were pretty cheap. I think Honda also has a multi-link suspension that can be used on something like the Fit, because the Fit EV has a multilink.

Actually the Fit EV rides on a different platform than the regular Fit. It is more similar to the Civic platform, with the flat-floor & the multi-link suspension setup being used (thus no 'magic seats' made possible). But I hope the next-gen Fit will have both multi-link & torsion-beam rear-suspension options fitted into the same platform (just like Toyota Corolla & Hyundai Elantra platforms that both have 2 different rear suspension options), but that would take some of the rear cargo capacity.

Hah! you wish.

Not only do we have sunshine and good mexican burritos while you're stuck with rain and Scottish "food" but the NA Fit has a 1.5 liter!

And we got one (09) Sport, MT5, Navi, AC, that would own European Fits.

And yeah! No height adjustment in the Fit seats, but then we never needed it.

We do get haggises, which are good. But the deep-fried Mars bars don't make it this far south.

Don't forget there's the seafood restaurants and the Japanese ones and the miles of beaches....

Yeah, it's pissing down here today.

Still, we have a height-adjustable seat on the Jizz. Did I mention that?
