Redesign Preview

The current Honda Fit has hung around since 2015 and is about due for some new duds. After a few delays, the all-new 2020 Honda Fit has finally made its debut ahead of the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show. Here’s what to expect from this all-new hatchback.

Visually, the 2020 Fit will retain its wedge-style hatchback design, but its designers blunted its nose a bit. From the front end, the fit will swoop upward at a relatively shallow rake thanks to all-new A-pillars that lean more rearward for improved visibility. Around back, the new hatchback’s rear hatch is less upright and flat as its glass slightly bulges out. The lighting will also be all-new, as Honda will move away from the funky, standout look of today’s Fit by adding less striking headlights and taillights.

Honda provided no glimpses into the new Fit’s cabin, but it made some notes about updates to expect. Up front, drivers will enjoy enhanced outward visibility thanks to cross-sectional A-pillars that are thinner but just as strong as before. Further strengthening outward visibility will be the flat-top instrument panel and the hidden windshield wipers.

The all-new interior will also boast enhanced comfort thanks to the seats’ planar support structures that hold the body in place without getting uncomfortable on longer hauls. In the rear, the new Fit will continue to accommodate adults with its impressive legroom while also offering enhanced comfort with thicker padding

Under its hood, the global Fit lineup will have hybrid and gasoline-only options, but there is no indication as to which will come to the States. The hybrid model will use the brand’s two-motor setup to allow the new Fit will travel on just battery power in most situations. There are no details on the gasoline-only model, so stay tuned for updates

The current Honda Fit missed out on being an IIHS Top Safety Pick because of its “Marginal” headlight rating. It did, however, receive “Good” ratings on all its completed crash tests and a “Superior” rating in front-crash prevention with the optional automatic emergency braking. According to Honda, the 2020 Fit will come standard with advanced safety gear like automatic emergency braking.

Pricing & Release Date

The Honda Fit will hit the road in Japan in February 2020, but there is uncertainty as to when it will be available in the U.S. In fact, there is no confirmation it will even arrive in time for the 2020 model year. Stay tuned for updates.

Pricing is still up in the air for the redesigned Fit. We do, however, expect a jump from its current MSRP range of $17,920 to $21,450 (destination fees included), especially when considering the potential hybrid model.

The car will compete with the Mitsubishi Mirage, Hyundai Accent, and Toyota Yaris.
