Redid sketch I posted earlier. Personally I don't mind how it looks - if it performs as well as they say and its real world economy is close to what's claimed it should be a winner!

I still don't like what I see from the new Fit at all and think that aesthetically, it's a step backwards.

Though who am I to complain when there's 130 horsepower and the promise of great fuel economy from this new Fit? I don't even need a Fit Si if I can get 130 hp and a manual.

Just to be sure everyone understand this, the quoted JP08 driving cycle figure is not realistic, at all ! Nor in Japan nor anywhere else.

What one should expect from the hybrid version is real world mileage on pair or a bit better than the Prius C, whatever that means the way you drive where you drive.

If you're curious enough to see more 'in-the-flesh', here's the video of the new Fit running (don't be fooled by the Insight on thumbnail, just start at 0:40 time where you can see the Fit)

Thank you for sharing this excellent video, CVCC1974! This is a very critical vehicle for Honda and I like it a lot and think it's going to have great success everywhere in the world it's sold.

Thanks CVCC1974, appreciate it.

The video hasn't changed my mind. Truth be told, the exterior doesn't look bad but to me it is a one-step back from the previous-gen.

Mugen quickly came up with their souped-up packages of the new Fit.
Looks okay with lowered suspensions & (I think) 17" wheels, although most likely photoshopped at this stage.

It seems that the video has been taken down for 'multiple copy-write violations" LOL. I've seen a few others and must say that my opinion of the styling has changed from "too much 2G Odyssey" to something more enthusiastic. Can't wait to learn more about the US specs and pricing. Maybe we'll learn enough by January to know if it's worth extending our lease to wait for the car to arrive in the summer?

Very nice, clear, brilliant gauges. Upscale-looking. Still, I think both interior and exterior of this Fit is 2 steps backward from the current gen.

Same argument goes to Miley Cyrus new persona, some say it's brilliant, some say it's trashy as hell. Subjective looks is hard to measure, but what is right to measure... Purported 130ps engine and larger interior space, can't argue with that.

It's hard to judge plastic texture from the photos, but I'd argue the converse; interior looks fine, it's the over-styled dash panel (a la CR-Z) which is like a migraine headache.

Cannot stand the fake stitching on the dash - it's the epitome of ridiculousness! We have a world of materials to appropriate a look from and we have to pretend with fake dead cow skin fake stitched together. I'd rather go covered with cloth, ala Chevy Cruze, to bring some real warmth to the cabin...at least try something different (no rice paper pattern though, that was clearly a mistake). The Accords wood/carbon fiber like amalgamation was a nice try...do something like that...but better :-)

BTW: Anyone see the analog rotary knobs on the dash in the third picture?

Lower weight? My RS came at 1050kg, so it actually gained 30kg. Though it goes from 8.75kg/ps to 8.18kg/ps. So that is definitely welcomed and being a DOHC, they (aftermarket) might be able to get more out of this engine than what the L15A in the current, well now just about old model could.
