The Honda Fit (Japanese: ホンダ・フィット, Hepburn: Honda Fitto), also marketed as Honda Jazz, is a five-door B-segment supermini or subcompact car manufactured and marketed by Honda since 2001 and now in its fourth generation. Marketed worldwide and manufactured at ten plants in eight countries, sales reached almost 5 million by mid-2013.

Sharing Honda's global small car platform with the City, Airwave, first generation Mobilio and Freed, the Fit is noted for its one-box or monospace design; forward-located fuel tank; configurable seats that Honda calls "Magic Seats", that fold in several ways to accommodate cargo in varying shapes and sizes— and cargo volume competitive to larger vehicles.

Honda released hybrid petroleum-electric versions of the Fit in Japan in October 2010 and in Europe in early 2011. Honda released the Fit EV, a limited production all-electric version, in the United States in July 2012 and in Japan the following month. By 2012, Honda Fit was produced in 12 countries, including Japan, Brazil, China, India and Indonesia.

Honda uses the "Jazz" nameplate in Europe, Oceania, the Middle East, Africa, Hong Kong, Macau, some ASEAN countries and India; and "Fit" in Japan, Sri Lanka, China, Taiwan and the Americas.

The Fit debuted in June 2001 in Japan and subsequently was introduced in Europe (early 2002), Australia (late 2002), South America (early 2003), South Africa and Southeast Asia (2003), China (September 2004), and Mexico (late 2005).

The Fit's fuel tank under the front seat and compact rear suspension enable the rear seats to fold especially low, creating a flexible and regularised cargo volume that is large for its class.

See: Honda Fit: diagram with forward fuel tank location and rear seat folded, into space typically occupied by the fuel tank.

A production model for the United States and Canada debuted on January 8, 2006 at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The car was released in Canada on April 3, 2006, and in the U.S. on April 20, 2006 as a 2007 model year. In North American markets, the first-generation Fit was replaced after only two model years by a new 2009 model, which was released for Japan in November 2007 as a 2008 model. Subsequent iterations would maintain the same platforms worldwide.

Models[edit]

The first-generation Fit was sold in 6 variations while its City/Fit Aria sedan sibling was sold in 4 variations.

All first generation Fit/Jazz models throughout the world used the following distinct codes, found in the vehicle's identification number (VIN):

Fit/Jazz

GD1: 1.3 L L13A i-DSI Inline-four engine 2WD (Europe: 1.4 L)

GD2: 1.3 L L13A i-DSI Inline-four engine 4WD (Japan only)

GD3: 1.5 L L15A VTEC Inline-four engine 2WD

GD4: 1.5 L L15A VTEC Inline-four engine 4WD (Japan only)

GD5: 1.2 L L12A Inline-four engine (Europe)

GE3: 1.3 L L13A i-DSI Inline-four engine 2WD (2007 Europe 1.4 L model. Made in China)

Drivetrain and platform[edit]

Depending on the region, the Fit is available with a 1.2-, 1.3- (in Europe referred as 1.4 L model), 1.5-liter i-DSI engine, or 1.5-liter VTEC engine. All four engines are based on Honda's L-series engine family. The eight-valve i-DSI (intelligent dual and sequential) engines use two spark plugs per cylinder, allowing gasoline to burn more completely; therefore, fuel consumption and emissions are reduced while maximum torque at mid-range rpm is maintained. The 1.5 L VTEC engine has the typical 16-valve configuration that can maximise output at high rpm.


Interior

The engines are mated to a five-speed manual, five-speed automatic, and continuously variable transmission (CVT), depending on the region (CVT not offered in United States prior to 2015). Two forms of CVT are offered: the regular, and CVT-7. The latter offers a smooth, continuous flow of power, or seven simulated "gears" controlled by paddle shifters on the steering column.

The Fit uses Honda's Global Small Car platform, which is also used by Fit Aria/City (a sedan version of the Fit), the Airwave (a station wagon version of Fit Aria/City), the Mobilio, and Mobilio Spike.

The Fit's central fuel tank location under the front rather than rear seats — combined with a compact, semi-independent, H-shaped torsion beam rear suspension — allows for a lower load platform and increased cargo volume. Noted for its "class leading utilization of interior space and maximum flexibility for people or cargo," the Fit offered approximately twice the storage space behind its rear seat compared with the Toyota Yaris hatchback.

Ultra Seat: The fuel tank and rear suspension layout also allows a multiple-mode seating system, marketed by Honda as Ultra Seat (Asia) and Magic Seat (North America, Oceania), with four seating modes — and a fifth in certain markets:

Normal: seats are in their normal position with seating for five.

Utility: Either section (or both) of the 60:40 split rear seat folds and lowers onto itself, creating a flat load surface and increased cargo area.

Long: The rear seat behind the passenger folds down similar to utility mode, but the front passenger seat folds backward, leaving an area that can hold items as long as 2.4 meters (7.9 ft).

Tall: Either section (or both) of the rear seat cushion fold up against the rear seat back, allowing for an area of 1.28 meters (4.2 ft) in height.

Refresh: With the headrest of the front seat removed, the front seat back can be folded down to form a lounge-style sitting area. (available in certain markets)

According to the Fit's chief engineer, Kohei Hitomi, the Magic/Ultra seating system's design "came about after the design team had spent long hours watching people in supermarkets and how they stored their things."

Ultra Luggage: In certain markets, Honda offers the Fit/Jazz without a spare tire, a system marketed as Ultra Luggage, where the spare tire well is used as part of a 'Tall' mode cargo area behind the rear seats. A flexible flap allows three configurations of rear storage: Regular, Tall and Upper/Lower mode.

Production[edit]

The first-generation Fit was produced at six locations, in Suzuka, Japan; Sumaré, Brazil; Guangzhou, China; Ayutthaya, Thailand; Karawang, Indonesia; and Laguna, Philippines. Models produced in Japan were for Honda's home market, Europe, some Asian markets, Australia (till the end of 2005), Canada and the United States. Models for the Malaysian, Singaporean, and Vietnamese markets are produced in Thailand. The Brazilian factory supplied Mexico, all of Latin America and the Caribbean. Chinese models were sold in mainland China, and products from a dedicated export plant were exported to some left-hand-drive European markets, while Jazz models in Hong Kong were imported from Japan.

Japan[edit]


JDM-spec Honda Fit

Two engines (1.3 i-DSI and 1.5 VTEC) were offered, each with a number of trim lines ranging from the basic "Y" to the sporty "S". The 1.3 L i-DSI was available with only the regular CVT automatic. The 1.5 L VTEC model with CVT-7 was added in September 2002. A five-speed manual was added in June 2004 for FWD model with the larger engine. Unique to the Japanese market, the Fit is also available in 4WD. Starting at a price of about JPY1,123,000 is the basic 1.3Y model. At the top of the range is the 1.5W four-wheel-drive version for JPY1,743,000. A bewildering range of options and accessories are available at most levels, including Honda's HDD GPS Navigation System called Internavi with its 6.5-inch (170 mm) colour screen. This system incorporates TV and FM radio. In Japan, the Fit replaced the market segment previously served by the eighth-generation Honda Civic and shared a platform with the fourth-generation Honda City, when the Civic no longer complied with Japanese Government dimension regulations when the Civic exceeded the 1700 mm width dimension.

Europe[edit]

Like Japan, the European Honda Jazz also has two engines available. The European-only 1.2 i-DSI is offered as the base model in many countries, and can be purchased only with a five-speed manual transmission. The 1.4 i-DSI is identical to the 1,339 cc 1.3 i-DSI sold in Japan, but marketed as a 1.4 L to differentiate it from the smaller 1.2 L engine (at 1,244 cc, it is closer to 1.3 L than the bigger one is to 1.4 L). 1.4 L models started out well-equipped with the 5-speed manual standard and CVT-7 available as an option.

All European Jazz models have Anti-lock braking system (ABS) with front disc brakes and rear drum brakes or disc brakes. Side airbags are standard on high end models.

The Jazz has been Honda's best-selling model, comprising 30% of European sales.[citation needed]

China[edit]

Local production and sale of the Fit (Hatchback) in China started in September 2004, roughly one year after the launch of the sedan version 'Fit saloon' (City/Fit Aria) in September 2003. The trims are similar to those in Japan; with the combination of 1.3 i-DSI, 1.5 VTEC, five-speed manual, and CVT, there are four models in total.

United States and Canada[edit]



2007 Honda Fit base and Sport (US)

The Fit went on sale in the United States and Canada in April 2006 for model year 2007, replacing the Civic hatchback for North America and becoming that market's chief entry-level subcompact. The Civic continues to grow in size and price and was reclassified as a compact (larger than a subcompact) in 2001.

In keeping with Honda's safety initiative, the Fit was offered in North America with power windows, standard side airbags, side-curtain airbags, and ABS, in addition to the mandatory front airbags. Due to differing safety regulations, North American Fits have larger bumpers and a longer front clip than the rest of the world, resulting in a slight increase in overall length.

For the 2008 model, U.S. models feature the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) to alert the driver of low pressure in any of the four stock wheels. Unlike some systems, the system in the 2008 Fit notifies the driver that a tire is low, but not which tire. The Fit narrowly missed qualifying for the Canadian government's $1,000 rebate, which is only offered for cars that meet the new federal fuel efficiency rating. Honda Canada Inc. decided to reimburse consumers the rebate for 2007, and a revision to the federal ratings allowed the 2008 Fit to qualify for the $1,000 rebate.

The Fit was offered in two variants in the United States (Base and Sport), and three in Canada (DX, LX and Sport). Differences were primarily limited to cosmetics and standard equipment, since all models shared the same 1.5 L 109 hp (81 kW) engine and standard five-speed manual transmission. A conventional five-speed automatic transmission was optional, instead of the automatic CVT found throughout the rest of the world. The Fit Sport model received paddle shifters mounted behind the steering wheel when ordered with the automatic.

For 2006, 27,934 Fits were sold in the United States. A total of 56,432 Fits were sold in the United States in 2007.

The 2008 Honda Fit was largely unchanged from the 2007 model with the exception of TPMS and new windshield wipers that abandon the large rubber-blade design to a more traditional rigid plastic with thin rubber-blade design. MSRP was also increased by roughly US$100. Total sales in the United States for the year were 79,794, an increase of almost 41% over previous year.

Reception[edit]

Honda marketed the Fit as "Small is the New Big".

Car and Driver magazine described, that "[n]ot only is it endowed with an impressive array of standard features and an upscale interior, but its dynamics rival the responses of cars with much fancier pedigrees and price tags." The magazine even cited its lane-change number of 71.4 mph edged the best run by a Ferrari F430 Spider F1 tested. The car was included in Car and Driver′s "10 Best Lists" three times. In May 2006, the Fit was placed first in a Car and Driver comparison of seven economy cars that included Nissan Versa and Toyota Yaris.

Consumer Guide said in its review, "While prices seem steep for a subcompact (compared to the Toyota Yaris and Nissan Versa), this is one in name and exterior size only; it's really a small wagon that challenges some compact SUVs for room while getting significantly better fuel economy".

Mexico[edit]

Fit, sourced from Brazil, was launched in October 2005. Fit is currently (2014) made in Mexico.

Brazil[edit]

Honda started local production and sale of Fit in April 2003 when Brazil became the second production base, after Japan, for Fit. In Brazil, though initially was available with the 1.3 L i-DSI engine only, eventually the Fit has the same engines as the Japanese models (all Brazilian Honda cars have engines imported from Japan) and there are three trim levels available. Base model LX features the 1.35 i-DSI engine (which is marketed as 1.4 in Brazil) and driver side airbag. The second model in the range, the LXL, features the same engine from the LX, but adds some extra equipment: passenger side airbag and ABS. Top model EX has essentially the same equipment as the LXL, but comes with the 1.5 VTEC engine. All models are available with the five-speed manual or the regular CVT automatic. There are neither side airbags nor side curtains available for the Brazilian version. Also, the radio antenna is positioned differently, as it is near the front of the roof. Honda started selling the 2007 model in February 2006 with new bumpers and some cosmetic changes.

Alcohol (ethanol) and gasoline hybrid Fit: Honda Brazil began sales in mid-December 2006, only for the 1.35 i-DSI. 80 hp (60 kW) at 100% gasoline and 83 hp (62 kW) at 100% alcohol.[citation needed] It also works with any intermediary mix rate. There is an additional gasoline fuel tank on the right side under the triangle window for low temperature starts.

Honda Fit was awarded by Quatro Rodas magazine as Best Buy in 2005 and 2006, and as the car with happiest buyers in 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2007.

South Africa[edit]

Launched in 2003, it was sold as the Jazz in South Africa. It is available with the 1.3 i-DSI (badged as a 1.4) or 1.5 VTEC engines both offered with either manual or CVT (automatic) transmission.[citation needed]

Chile[edit]

All Honda Fits sold in Chile are built in Brazil, except for a few early 2004 models. Until 2007, all three Brazilian trim levels were available LX, LXL and EX, with five-speed manual or CVT automatic transmissions, but for 2008 models, the 1.5-liter 16-valve VTEC engine is no longer available, while the Brazilian LXL, with 1.35-liter 8-valve i-DSI engine, is sold as EX.

No alcohol powered engines are available in Chile.[citation needed]

Australia[edit]


2004-06 Honda Jazz (Australia)

The Honda Jazz offering in Australia follows, to a degree, the Japanese versions (excluding the 4WD models), and was released in Australia in October 2002.

The base model Jazz GLi is powered by a 1.34-liter i-DSI engine, and includes air-conditioning, a CD player, two front airbags, ABS brakes, EBD, a trip computer, remote central locking, a transponder coded immobilizer, power steering, windows and mirrors. Standard is a five-speed manual gearbox, with the auto CVT an optional extra.

The VTi adds the 1.5-liter VTEC engine, "sports" trim, and side mirror-mounted turning indicators. Optional is the version of the auto CVT with Formula 1 inspired gear shift paddles on the steering wheel; the VTi-S has a "sports" body kit, fog lights, and 15-inch (380 mm) alloy wheels.

A "dot" on the "J" in Jazz on the rear of the first-generation model indicates whether it is powered by a 1.5- or 1.3-liter engine. The 1.5-liter version (VTi) has a blue dot and 1.3-liter version (GLi) has a red dot. The second-generation models can be differentiated by the presence (VTi) or absence (GLi) of audio controls on the steering wheel. The body kit for the VTi-S has changed since its introduction in 2003. The picture to the right illustrates the differences. The white Jazz VTi-S in the middle is a December 2003 model, while the left silver Jazz is a 2004 VTi with optional bodykit, the right silver Jazz is a 2004 model VTi-S.

Since its introduction to Australia, the Jazz has been imported from Japan. However, in late 2005, Honda Australia began importing the Jazz from Thailand. The cheaper production costs allowed Honda to make significant price cuts across the Jazz range, though the color range has been reduced to six (compared to twelve in Japan).

In 2006, the Australian Honda Jazz received a minor cosmetic facelift. At this stage, a free trade agreement between Australia and Thailand resulted all Australian Honda Jazz models being made in the Thailand factory. The model and trim variants remained the same, excluding the cosmetic changes.

All Jazz models were upgraded to LED tail lights as standard and also the 1.3 L Gli Jazz models have its antenna mounted at the front just above the front windscreen.

The VTi 1.5 L engine and body remained the same with the addition of a sports collapsible antenna mounting on the rear roof. The CVT paddle shift system was altered for easier use. The paddle system is down gears on the left and up gears on the right. The previous model had a shifter for both up down at the three-o'clock and nine-o'clock positions.

The VTi-S is mechanically similar to the VTi, but has a sports body kit. In addition, the LED tail lights are smoked, giving a more 'sporty' look.[citation needed]

Malaysia[edit]



Post-2006 facelift Honda Jazz in Malaysia.

The Malaysian version was available in two variants, the 1.5 i-DSI and 1.5 VTEC. Both are equipped with CVT-7 and are front wheel drive. No manual transmission is offered. Unlike the Australian market, which had different trims for the Jazz e.g., (GLi (Base Model with 1.3 motor), VTi (1.5 VTEC motor without Bodykit) and VTi-S (Sports Model with Bodykit)), the Malaysian Jazz models were either the 1.3 iDSi or the 1.5 VTEC. As of March 2003, a sole 1.4 i-DSi model was the only variant available.

Standard equipment on both models includes air-conditioning, driver and front passenger air-bags, CD/radio head unit, ABS brakes, EBD, trip computer, central locking, power-assisted windows, power-assisted side mirrors, power-assisted steering, reflector halogen headlights, and folding seats. Optional extras can be purchased from Honda Dealers/Service Centers all around Malaysia at retail price. A three-year warranty is standard for all Jazz models purchased from authorized Honda dealers in Malaysia.

Initially, the Jazz was sold as a Built-up export (CBU) model (fully imported from Japan), with the sole variant powered by a 1.3 i-DSI engine. Variants included the 1.3 i-DSi and the 1.5 VTEC model. In 2004, the 1.5 i-DSi models were imported from Thailand and 1.5 i-VTEC models were imported from Japan. Subsequently, Malaysia received units built in Thailand. The main and most noticeable difference were rear disc brakes. Japanese models incorporated rear drum brakes.

In early 2006, the Jazz underwent a facelift (introduced earlier in Japan). The new version included new front fascia and bumpers, new rear bumper, new side skirts, side-mirror-mounted indicators/turn signals, rear LED brake lights, rear LED third brake light, body-colored housing headlights and minor interior changes. The motor remained unchanged.

Singapore[edit]

Sold as the Jazz in Singapore by the authorized dealer and Fit by parallel importers. 1.5 L i-DSI variant is offered for the Jazz while the Fit sold by parallel importers is available in 1.3 L only. CVT or five-speed manual transmissions are offered in Singapore.[citation needed]

Thailand[edit]

Introduced in November 2003 for local production and sold as the Jazz in Thailand. Thailand became the third production base to produce Fit, after Japan and Brazil. Initially it was available only with a 1.5 L i-DSI engine, which it shared with City (Fit Aria), and either a five-speed manual transmission or CVT. It is available in two variants, the 1.5 i-DSI and 1.5 VTEC. Both of them are FF layout with CVT-7 or five-speed manual transmission offered.

Jazz's Engine Figures

Indonesia[edit]


Facelifted Honda Jazz i-DSI (Indonesia)


Facelifted Honda Jazz VTEC (Indonesia)

The Jazz was first imported from Japan under the name Fit in 2002 through grey import channels. In late 2003, Honda decided to import the Jazz from Thailand. Overwhelming demand caused Honda Prospect Motor to assemble Jazz locally at Karawang plant at 2004, while still selling the imported Jazz i-DSI alongside the local one. Honda Jazz was an instant success and became the fourth best-selling car in Indonesia. It was initially offered in only one trim with the 1.5 i-DSI engine mated to either a 5-speed manual or a CVT transmission. In early 2005, a VTEC model was offered with added rear disc brakes, ABS, EBD and airbags.[citation needed]

Philippines[edit]

Sold as the Jazz in the Philippines from 2004 up to 2008 (1st generation). It is available with three trim lines:

1.3 L - five-speed manual, power steering, without air bag

1.3 S - five-speed manual/CVT, all-power, ABS, dual SRS air bag

1.5 S - five-speed manual/CVT(2005), all-power, ABS, dual SRS air bag

and 2 engine configurations:

L13A i-DSI 1,339 cc SOHC 8-valve

L15A VTEC 1,496 cc SOHC 16-valve

2004 models were imported from Thailand, while 2005–08 models were built in Honda's plant in Laguna.[citation needed]

Second generation (GE; 2007)[edit]

Main article: Honda Fit (second generation)

The second-generation Fit/Jazz debuted on 17 October 2007 at the 40th Tokyo Motor Show. At its introduction in 2007, it won the Car of the Year Japan Award for the second time. The vehicle offered a longer wheelbase than its predecessor and is wider and longer overall.

Two engines were offered in the second-generation Fit. A 1.3-litre i-VTEC produces 100 PS (99 hp; 74 kW) at 6,000 rpm and 127 N⋅m (13.0 kg⋅m; 93.7 lb⋅ft) at 4,800 rpm. A 1.5-litre i-VTEC engine was also offered and produces a maximum output of 120 PS (118 hp; 88 kW) at 6,600 rpm and 145 N⋅m (14.8 kg⋅m; 107 lb⋅ft) at 4,800 rpm.

The hybrid version was launched October 2010 in Japan. The Fit Hybrid featured a 1.3-litre engine and electric motor, with an estimated fuel economy of 3.3 litres per 100 kilometres (86 mpg‑imp; 71 mpg‑US) measured in accordance with Japanese 10–15 cycle. The car used a parallel hybrid system that works in tandem with the petrol engine. The parallel hybrid system is simple and lightweight while enhancing driving performance and fuel economy.

Honda also showed a concept electric vehicle based on the second generation Fit in 2010. It was mass-produced as the Fit EV in 2013–2015. The 2013 model year production Fit EV was unveiled at the November 2011 Los Angeles Show. Vehicles for the U.S. market were limited to 1,100 units through October 2014. It is powered by a lithium-ion battery pack combined with an AC synchronous, permanent magnet coaxial traction motor and low-friction reduction gearbox. Honda said the Fit EV concept had an all-electric range of 70 to 100 miles (110 to 160 km) and a top speed of 90 miles per hour (140 km/h).

For the first time, it was also available in a station wagon body style called the Fit Shuttle. The variant was only available in Japan's domestic market.

Chronology

Successor

Honda City hatchback (Southeast Asia)

The third-generation Fit/Jazz retains the overall design concept of previous generations, notably the center-located fuel tank and multi-configuration interior concept, marketed as Magic Seating.

Honda's all-new "Global Small Car Platform" employing ultra-high strength 780 MPa yield steel for 27% of its bodywork — and a shorter overall length (-1.6 inches (-4cm)), longer wheelbase (+1.2inch (+3cm)) increased rear legroom (+4.8 inches(+12.2cm)) and increased passenger volume (+4.9 cu ft (+135.9L)) compared to its previous generation.

Body panels are both welded and bolted to the frame in a hybrid monocoque and spaceframe fusion — and rear torsion beam suspension is more compact, no longer using an anti-sway bar to maximize interior and cargo space. Honda HR-V shares its platform with the Fit.

The Fit Hybrid uses an Earth Dreams 1.5-liter Atkinson cycle DOHC i-VTEC engine paired with a 7-speed DCT (dual-clutch transmission) and an internal high-output motor, IPU (Intelligent Power Unit) with lithium-ion battery, electric servo braking system with variable servo ratio control. The next-generation sport hybrid i-DCD system combines a 97 kW (132 PS; 130 hp), 156 N⋅m (15.9 kg⋅m; 115 lb⋅ft) 1.5-liter direct injection engine combined with a 22 kW (30 PS; 30 hp) 160 N⋅m (16.3 kg⋅m; 118 lb⋅ft) Honda H1 motor. Powertrains are shared with Honda Vezel and Honda Grace Hybrid.

Compared to the outgoing IMA hybrid, the new hybrid can now run fully on electric while driving, making it on par with Toyota Prius. Japanese cycle fuel consumption go as low as 37 km/L for the facelift base model. Cargo capacity is 470 liters.

Non-hybrid models include the 13G (Earth Dreams 1.3-liter Atkinson cycle DOHC i-VTEC engine and CVT transmission), 15X (Earth Dreams 1.5-liter direct injection DOHC i-VTEC engine), RS (Earth Dreams 1.5-liter direct injection DOHC i-VTEC engine). The RS variant, like the outgoing model, features cosmetic enhancements featuring a sporty all-round body kit, 16-inch wheels, red interior stitching and sports pedals.

North America[edit]

The U.S. model debuted at the 2014 North American International Auto Show and went on sale in June as a 2015 model year vehicle. The third-generation model replaces the previous SOHC engine with an all-new 1.5-liter DOHC i-VTEC engine featuring direct injection and an intake cam using continuously variable cam phasing with a variable lift dual cam lobe profile. Transmission options include a 6-speed manual or continuously variable transmission (CVT) with available paddle shifters adopted from the Civic. Fuel mileage ratings for automatic models are 33/41/36 mpg (LX model, city/highway/combined) or 32/38/35 mpg (EX and EX-L trim levels).[citation needed]

All Fits trim levels include a multi-angle rear-view backup camera; higher trims include dynamic guidelines. Honda's LaneWatch passenger side-view mirror camera is also optional.

The fourth-generation Fit/Jazz was unveiled simultaneously on 23 October 2019 in Japan at the 46th Tokyo Motor Show and Amsterdam, Netherlands at the 'Electric Vision' event.

This generation has been developed with electrification in mind, which saw the model being marketed as a hybrid-only model in Europe, and the hybrid variant being positioned as a volume maker in Japan. The hybrid powertrain is marketed as the e:HEV which utilizes Honda’s new dual-motor i-MMD (Intelligent Multi-Mode Drive) hybrid system, replacing the previous Intelligent Dual Clutch Drive (i-DCD) setup.

The fourth-generation Fit retains its large windshield that offers optimal forward visibility, though a redesigned front pillar with a cross-sectional structure differs from the previous generation. Honda stated it improves the impact absorption into the body in the event of a collision. Combined with the use of a flat dashboard and a visor-less instrument display, provides the driver with a better view of their surroundings. The windscreen wipers have also been hidden below the top of the bonnet line.

The model would not be sold in the North American market due to poor sales for its predecessor, in favour of the HR-V which saw its production being ramped up to make up for the demise of the Fit.

Markets[edit]

Japan[edit]

It was launched in Japan on 13 February 2020 and went on sale on the following day. Trim levels for the Japanese market Fit are Basic, Home, Ness, Crosstar and Luxe.

In Japan, the Fit is offered with both conventional 1.3-litre petrol engine and the 1.5-litre e:HEV system. The take rate of the Fit e:HEV in Japan is targeted to reach 65 percent, up from the previous generation's 40 percent. In reality, the Fit e:HEV accounted for 72 percent of sales as per March 2020.

Europe[edit]

The Jazz went on sale in Europe in mid-2020 as a hybrid-only model, as Honda is phasing out conventional combustion engine in the region in 2022. The Crosstar model is also offered as a range-topping model. For the market, Honda stated the Jazz is capable of achieving 62.8 mpg‑imp (22.2 km/l; 4.5 L/100 km; 52.3 mpg‑US) on the WLTP combined cycle while emitting 102 g/km of CO2 in its standard form.

China[edit]

The Chinese-market Fit is produced and sold by Guangqi Honda, and launched on 10 June 2020. It is available with two sub-models which are Sport and Crosstar. The Fit Sport featured sportier-looking front and rear bumpers compared to the Japanese or European model. Its twin model for the Chinese market is produced and sold by Dongfeng Honda under the name Honda Life. Both are fitted with a more pronounced rear bumpers compared to the Japanese-produced model, bumping its length to 4,110 mm (161.8 in).

The minor differences between the two are the front bumper designs and rear taillight tint colour (the Life has a clear smoked tint).

Both the Chinese-market Fit and Life is powered by a 1.5-liter i-VTEC engine to a CVT transmission. There is no hybrid option offered in China.

Others[edit]

The fourth-generation Fit was launched in Singapore in January 2021 as the Jazz.

Powertrain[edit]

The fourth-generation Fit is offered with a new hybrid powertrain option marketed as the e:HEV, the system uses Honda’s dual-motor i-MMD (Intelligent Multi-Mode Drive) hybrid system. The system combines a 1.5-litre DOHC i-VTEC four-cylinder petrol engine that on its own makes 98 PS (97 hp; 72 kW) from 5,600 to 6,400 rpm and 127 N⋅m (13.0 kg⋅m; 93.7 lb⋅ft) from 4,500 to 5,000 rpm with two electric motors, with one of them acting as a generator to recharge the lithium-ion battery while the other is an electric propulsion motor capable of spinning at 13,300 rpm to handle low-speed acceleration. The engine sends power to the front wheels through a single fixed-gear ratio and a lock-up clutch, which is claimed to provide a smoother transfer of torque during acceleration. The setup is claimed to be more compact and refined compared to a planetary eCVT typically found in other hybrid vehicles. The system is rated at 109 PS (108 hp; 80 kW) and 253 N⋅m (25.8 kg⋅m; 187 lb⋅ft) of torque.

The conventional petrol engine for the Japanese market is 1.3-litre naturally-aspirated i-VTEC four-cylinder, making 98 PS at 6,000 rpm and 118 Nm of torque at 5,000 rpm. It is mated to a CVT and a choice of either front or all-wheel drive.

Sales[edit]

Japanese sales of the first-generation Fit greatly exceeded the original monthly sales target of 8,000 units on debut. By December 2001, it had outsold the Toyota Corolla, and ranked first in sales for nine out of twelve months in 2002. With a total sales of 250,790 for the year of 2002, it became the best-selling vehicle in Japan, which is a first for a Honda model. By September 2003, a little more than two years after the car was first sold, Fit reached 500,000 sales in Japanese market.

After a minor model change that went on sale on June 11, 2004, Honda announced that, in about 2 weeks' period after its introduction, the company received orders from customers totaled around 13,000 units. By November 2007, in less than 6 months after minor model change, cumulative sales of Fit reached one million units in Japan.

The second generation has been the top selling car in Japan since its official launch in November 2007. By September 2010, cumulative sales in Japan reached 1.5 million units.

By December 2004, cumulative global sales of Fit/Jazz reached 1 million units. On July 17, 2007, Honda announced that as of the end of June more than 2 million Fit/Jazz units had been sold worldwide since its introduction. Japan accounts for the largest percentage of sales, with 962,000 units sold in the home market. Europe is next with 417,000 units. The United States accounts for 77,000 cars since introduction in 2006. Honda expected to sell 33,000 vehicles in the U.S. for the 2007 model year, but exceeded these expectations, and sold 40,000. Honda plans to put 70,000 Fit units on American roads for the 2008 model year.

In the first half of 2008, Honda and other manufacturers were surprised by the rapid shift towards smaller cars in the United States. Sales of the Fit during the first five months of the year jumped 64% compared with that of 2007. Production of 2009 Fit for the U.S. market was to increase from 60,000 to 80,000 cars. Further increase in supply for the U.S. market is limited by Honda's production capacity of 500,000 a year for all markets.

Honda announced that by the end of July 2009, worldwide sales of Fit/Jazz reached 3 million. One year later, global cumulative sales reached 3.5 million units in July 2010.

Marketing[edit]


Look up fitta in Wiktionary, the free dictionary.

Honda had planned to use the name Fitta, and was released in Japan under that name in 2001. Because Fitta in Scandinavian languages is slang for vagina, Honda instead used Jazz in most markets and Fit in the Americas.

In April 2006, Honda Australia promoted Honda Jazz with Village Green, an animated television commercial, in 30 second and 60 second versions, inspired by Thomas the Tank Engine.

In April 2006, American Honda launched the Fit with six five-second and two 30-second TV ads, with the slogan 'The Fit Is Go'.

Subsequent ad campaigns included "Mecha-Mosquitoes," (broke 9/21) "Defense Mechanism" (breaks 10/2) and "Bats" (breaks 9/28), produced by Digital Domain. As part of the campaign, the vehicle also appeared in Gossip Girl, 90210, America's Next Top Model, Smallville and Everybody Hates Chris. Print ads "Gas Hogs" and "Cavernous" will be featured in popular magazines. A dedicated marketing site was built to communicate top product features through games and interactive experiences. The campaign continued the slogan 'The Fit Is Go'.
