The images show a blue Honda Fit hatchback with all-new styling that Motor Trend says will be featured on the 2015 U.S. model. Changes include more angular bodywork on the front, side and rear and a new headlight and grille combination that reminded Motor Trend of Honda’s Clarity hydrogen-powered car.
Automotive News (subscription required) reports that Honda has also developed a new hybrid system for the Fit that “greatly boosts fuel economy over the current [hybrid] system” that's used in other Honda models, like the Insight. Automotive News says that Honda will probably not release a hybrid version of the hatchback pictured above to the U.S. However, the U.S. will likely receive a new Fit sedan and Fit-based small crossover with the hybrid drivetrain.
Motor Trend says that, despite the design overhaul, the exterior dimensions of the subcompact Fit remain the same. While it wasn't impressed with the interior, the publication expects the design to change before the car goes on sale in the U.S.
