2021 Honda Jazz

2021 Honda Jazz

A fourth-gen subcompact from the H Badge

Honda is testing an all-new Jazz subcompact hatchback, also known as the Fit in some markets. It’s the fourth generation for the nameplate and it looks like it will retain the wedge-nosed one-box design of its predecessors, albeit with a slightly sportier design twist.

The camouflaged prototype spotted by our spies reveals quite a lot about the car, which is slated for a reveal no earlier than 2020, since the refreshed version of the current model only came out last year. Aside from the completely new and slightly more rakish-looking body, changes will be made to its powerplant lineup and interior. The hybrid version may share its powertrain with the new Insight.

Honda Teams Up with Major Battery Producer to Build Fit-Like EV with 180-Mile Range

Honda Teams Up with Major Battery Producer to Build Fit-Like EV with 180-Mile Range

Will cost as low as $18,000!

One of the first automakers to launch a production hybrid — the Insight arrive in late 2000 — Honda still has a lot of catching up to do in the all-electric market. Having focused on hydrogen tech and hybrids in recent years, the Japanese firm has only two EVs on offer: the brand-new Clarity Electric and the really old Fit EV, based on the second-gen hatchback that was discontinued in 2014. But Honda wants to change that really soon. It has already signed a global partnership with CATL, China’s biggest battery maker, and more recently one with Nikkei, which will spawn a new all-electric Fit.

2015 Honda Fit HPD B-Spec Concept Race Car

2015 Honda Fit HPD B-Spec Concept Race Car

B-spec racing has steadily grown in popularity as a relatively inexpensive way of getting started in the world of SCCA club racing. The cars are light, compact, and, with the exception of the requisite safety equipment and a few performance tweaks, are basically showroom-stock. Manufacturers including Mini, Mazda, Kia and Honda have all jumped in the B-spec pool, and with a new Fit on the way, Honda looks like its getting ready to recommit.

Built for SEMA by Honda Performance Development, who also builds Honda’s prototype racers for the TUDOR United SportsCar Series, the 2015 Honda Fit HPD B-SPEC Concept Race Car is just about everything you would need to get your foot in the door to go amateur racing. Engine modifications adhere to class rules and are limited to an HPD air filter, HPD air-conditioning delete belt and HPD stainless-steel cat-back exhaust.

Things start to get really racy with the chassis. An HPD coil-over kit with race springs soaks up the bumps, and HPD stainless-steel brake lines and brake pads reign in the that 1.5-liter four-banger. The TR Motorsports C1 wheels are shod in BF Goodrich R1 racing tires.

The interior is almost unrecognizable, because, well, most of it isn’t there. The stock dash remains mostly intact, but that’s about it. The rest is pure, stripped-out race car stuff. A very serious looking Sparco racing seat provides both lateral stability and protection, and a Schroth driver restraint harness keeps the driver securely fastened. Then there’s the quick-release steering wheel, and six-point roll cage that provides additional chassis rigidity and rollover protection.

On paper, this Honda Fit B-spec racer is just a concept, but we would expect to see something very close hitting tracks around North America very soon. In all, this thing looks like a blast, and I, for one, can’t think of a better way to spend a weekend than banging fenders with other underpowered subcompacts on the track.

2015 Honda Fit Tjin Edition

2015 Honda Fit Tjin Edition

Believe it or not, this is a Honda Fit. Or Honda Jazz if your market sells it under that name. It’s hard to imagine how the Fit can lose its funky five-door hatchback character, but if there’s a tuner that has proven to be adept at such conversions, it’s Tjin Edition. The American aftermarket company has been in the customization business long enough to create a catalog of products that have been displayed at the SEMA Auto Show.

This year, the Fit Tjin Edition joins the ranks with a long list of upgrades that would put most SEMA-bound vehicles to shame. The Fit Tjin Edition is a collaborative undertaking that saw a handful of tuning firms get involved. Unique Fabrication was involved, as was L&R Autobody, Falken Tires, Baer Brakes, AirREX, VIAIR, Bisimoto Engineering, Copius, Katzkin Leather, and Sony. Together, all these firms created a program that is nothing short of transformative for the Honda Fit.

That’s what you look for at an event like SEMA and like in year’s past, Tjin Edition is going to the dance with a program that will turn heads into full-fledged swivels.

Vote for Your Favorite Honda Fit Project for SEMA

When it comes to tuning Japanese cars, Hondas have a lot of potential. They’re affordable, easy to meddle with, and there are tons of shops willing to dress them up inside and out. Of course, not all Hondas have what it takes to become a show car, but the automaker’s American division is out to prove that the tiny Fit is as good of a base car as the Civic. Specifically, Honda commissioned six build teams to create a beefed-up Fit of their own for the 2014 SEMA Show, and it needs your help to decide which one is the winner.

Bisimoto Engineering, Kontrabrands, MAD Industries, Spoon Sports USA, Tjin Edition and Kenny Vinces have the opportunity to customize a 2015 Fit leading up to the SEMA Show, while Honda will be promoting the contest through the Fit Performance Project campaign on its Tumblr page. Over there, you can keep track of the progress of each team, and vote by liking and reblogging posts tagged with #ProjectFit. The shop that wins the contest will receive an award from Honda and will have its effort promoted on several social media platforms.

2015 Honda Fit EX-L - Driven

2015 Honda Fit EX-L - Driven

In 2007, Honda rebadged its useful and popular Jazz model as the Fit and released it in America. Americans immediately took notice, as the unstable prices in fuel led us to start looking at smaller vehicles. What’s more, the debut Fit also had a massive 57-cubic-foot cargo area that no other compact hatchbacks could come close to. In 2015 — after a one-year break — the Fit returns with an all-new look, new cabin, updated engine, and a huge increase in rear-seat room.

I spent a week behind the wheel of the range-topping 2015 Fit EX-L — the first Fit to feature leather upholstery — and came away mighty impressed. The roominess was out of this world, the cargo area was incredible and the smattering of features were nice additions. As with most entry-level cars with leather interior, this was the sore spot in the whole thing. The leather seemed haphazardly slapped over cloth and hard plastic, leaving some fit and finish issues, and black leather is simply unbearable in the summer.

the real question is whether the iffy leather left a bad taste in my mouth or were the good parts of this compact hatch enough to make me overlook my problems with the cow hide?

TopSpeed Podcast Episode 019 LIVE

It was a day early, but we hope you enjoyed this week’s episode of the TopSpeed Podcast. There was the usual bit of silliness, a fair amount of arguing and we even managed to talk about some car stuff.

As always, we want to say a very special thanks to our live viewers.

For Weekly Wheels, I discuss my time with the Prius V, Mark talks to us about what he thinks I got wrong with the Lexus RX 450h, and Justin tells us how much he liked the new 2015 Honda Fit.

For news stories we cover the new fourth-generation Miata engine and reveal date, talk about Mercedes bringing back the Maybach name, and we cover our exclusive news of Kahn Design moving into car production.

After that we spend some time with Mark talking about the 100-year anniversary of Dodge, how they are celebrating with a 707 horsepower Challenger, and end with a look at the future of the rock-crawling Jeep Wrangler. To finish the news, I had a few things to say about a faster Alfa Romeo 4C and looked at how you can buy a cheap Porsche Boxster or Cayman next summer.

For our viewer-question segment we talk about cars that can do epic burnouts, cars we want to see do epic burnouts and then we talk about racing video games. With the video games we take a second to look at our all-time favorite games and touch on the games that are coming out in the next six to nine months. There is even a sneak peak at a new piece I am working on.

To end the show we do our traditional Own, Drive, Burn and it was easily the hardest one we had yet. We have to choose between a legendary classic Porsche, Ferrari and Lamborghini.

If you liked the show, let us know in the comments. If you didn’t like the show, let us know that too. Apart from the comments, you can reach us on Twitter @TopSpeedPodcast or by email, Podcast@TopSpeed.com.

10 Best Budget Enthusiast Machines Under $20k

10 Best Budget Enthusiast Machines Under $20k

There is an overlying stigma that trying to buy a fun and sporty car will cost you an arm and a leg. We decided to set the record straight, and with a shoe-string budget of only $20,000 we have been able to come up with 10 brand-new cars that will make any enthusiast happy without breaking the bank. To make the list, each car must demonstrate a certain level of character, fun, and practicality. Cars were chosen based on weight, handling ability, and power. Also, every car chosen offers a manual transmission on the engine/trim level that we have chosen. So fun, practical and available with three-pedals. There isn’t much more that you really need when looking for a fun and cheap car.

Before you start frying about the great cars that are available for just a little bit more like the Mazda Miata and Ford Fiesta ST, or the amazing cars you can get used, we wanted to focus on the really cheap side of things. If you are already stretching your budget to get a $19-$20k car, buying something at $23k is just not an option. Also, if you are already stretching your budget to hit that $20k mark, the last thing you can afford is the cost of repairs and maintenance that comes with every used car. A full warranty is a very important thing for this market.

With all of that out of the way, let’s jump into this. As always, feel free to tell me how awesome and right all my choices are. If you think I left something off this list, let me know that too. Now hit that jump and enjoy.

See our top ten enthusiast cars for less than $20,000 after the break.

2015 Honda Fit Hybrid

Honda announced today the first details on the next-generation Fit Hybrid that is set for release on the Japanese market this September. The third-generation Fit will be one of the most innovative hybrid models ever offered by Honda. It will be the first Honda model equipped with the Sport Hybrid Intelligent Dual Clutch Drive (i-DCD) that will ensure a fuel economy ratings of 36.4 kilometers per liter (about 86 mpg).

The new hybrid system combines a newly developed 1.5-liter in-line four-cylinder engine with the earlier mentioned i-DCD. The i-DCD system includes a seven-speed DCT system with a built-in high-output motor and the IPU (intelligent power unit) equipped with a built-in lithium-ion battery.

There is also an electric servo brake system that stores energy while braking and provides a fully-electric compressor that reduces engine load. With all these updates, Honda’s new hybrid system ensure a fuel economy improvement of 35 percent when compared to the current IMA hybrid system.

The new hybrid system also features three driving modes that alternate between gasoline and electric, depending on the driving situation: EV Drive, Hybrid Drive Mode and Engine Drive Mode.

Before you get too excited, you have to know that this Fit will not be offered on the U.S. market. However, Honda plans to use this technology in the U.S. on a sedan that it will build on the Fit platform.

Mazda and Honda roll out B-Spec Mazda2 and Fit race cars

Mazda and Honda roll out B-Spec Mazda2 and Fit race cars

In today’s world, spec series racing is only limited to the virtual world of Gran Turismo. Sure, it’s a fun and affordable way to get some racing burn on a race track, but the truth of the matter is, it’s constrained to nothing more than video games. Real world racing of this kind costs a lot of money and resources, and people that have neither of those things are left out of luck.

Despite the fact that there are no B-spec professional series out there, Honda and Mazda are setting a goal of providing close racing in affordable cars by jointly announcing the formation of "B-Spec" Showroom Stock racing. The performance divisions for each brand – Honda Performance Development and MAZDASPEED Motorsports Development – recently unveiled their entries for a proposed new low-cost B-Spec series, using the Honda Fit and the MAZDA2 as their respective platforms.

As one of the fastest-growing segments in the entire automotive industry, B-segment vehicles have grown in popularity because they’re affordable and, more importantly, have enjoyed a tremendous following from younger demographics. That success has translated into the idea of producing cheap(er) B-Spec racers with the Fit and Mazda2 being two of among a number of other hatchbacks that would fit into this category. Other vehicles include the Ford Fiesta, Hyundai Accent, Nissan Versa, Toyota Yaris, and Chevrolet Aveo.

Car and Driver announces "10 Best Cars for 2011"

As one of the most esteemed auto magazines in the world, Car and Driver’s annual “Top 10 Cars” is always a good barometer for automakers to see if one – or maybe two – of their vehicles made it to the list. With a readership that spans the entire world, Car and Driver’s Top 10 list is read by millions of people so it’s kind of a big deal for these companies. From the usual suspects to a number of new surprises, the “Top 10 Cars” will reveal what cars the magazine is highly recommending for the next calendar year.

In determining which cars make it to the list, editor-in-chief, Eddie Alterman explains: “In our testing, we are looking for those automobiles that deliver spectacular value, real driver engagement, and the highest fulfillment of their intended mission.”

He continues: “Our testing takes place over a week on real roads in the real world, marshaling more than 60 new test cars and our entire editorial staff. It’s a real workout, and the best cars on the market emerge victorious."

For 2011, the list has a number of old guards that have made multiple appearances while there are others that are making their inaugural face-time. Just to give you an idea on what to expect, three American, German, and Japanese models made it to the list with the other spot going to a model from South Korea. There are also three cars – the Audi S4, the Mazda3, and the Ford Fusion Hybrid – that dropped out of the list, which means that you’re going to be seeing a number of new entries making it to the Top 10.

So without further ado, Car and Driver’s “Top 10 Cars for 2011” after the jump.

Video: How much can you pack into a Honda Jazz?

Here in the US, we know this car as the Honda Fit, but in other parts of the world, it goes by another moniker; ‘the Honda Jazz’.

In Australia, the Jazz is currently in the middle of a hilarious promotional campaign called ‘Jazz Packing’. It’ hilarious because we watched the set of videos the campaign has released and we couldn’t stop our eyes from getting teary-eyed from all the hysterical laughing.

Basically, the ads were made to show exactly how versatile the Jazz really is. It’s got loads of room on the interior, it’s got 10 cup holders – that’s right, 10! – and it’s a practical ride for just about anybody, even if you’re a bodybuilder, a rapper, a hipster, and, of course, a ninja.

Check out these four hilarious ads and be sure to adhere our warnings that there will be massive loads of skimpy Speedos, “mystical” windows, tied-up pirates, and a reference to Haruki Murakami. We’re not making this stuff up.

Honda Fit by Mugen

Honda Fit by Mugen

More often than not we associate Honda’s in house tuner, Mugen, with fire breathing high horsepower GT500 NSXs on the racetrack and big winged hot hatch Civics Type Rs for more civilized use, they also cater to a few less likely members of the Honda family. In this instance we are talking about the compact Honda Fit hatchback, and Mugen’s Euro Sport package. The kit is made up of a sporty aero package starting off with a more aggressive front bumper and a subtle yet stylish hatch mounted wing. The Japanese tuner goes to meticulous lengths to ensure top quality fit and finish, just look at the carbon fiber license plate frame and engraved Mugen mounting screws.

On the inside Mugen dresses up the little Fit with a set of their signature kick plates at the base of the doors, race inspired oil and water temperature gauges mounted in a dual pod just outside the instrument cluster. The shifter gets a fancy knob made from a machined piece of billet aluminum as well as matching sport pedals for the Fit no matter whether you want to shift it yourself or let Honda do it for you. As far as performance is concerned, Mugen offers a free flowing sports exhaust for that perfect tone, a sport tuned suspension to allow the compact Fit to dance around chicanes and upgraded brake pads in the event that unavoidable objects make themselves known. However the best part of the Mugen package are the XJ and NR rims, available as either a multi spoke mesh design or a thick eight spoke design compete with the Mugen logo for each corner of your new car.

It consists of a new hood, a re-designed front bumper, new side sills, a new roof spoiler and a new rear apron with integrated rear air diffuser.

No Fit hybrid for U.S.

No Fit hybrid for U.S.

Hybrids, hybrids, HYBRIDS! Every car company seems to not be able to get enough gas/electric cars in its lineup, well except Honda. As it turns out Honda has no current plans to bring the Fit hybrid to the U.S. So while Japan gets a few more miles out of the little car, we’ll have to settle for 28 city/35 hwy mileage.

Honda says that they are already selling Fits as fast as it can make them and don’t need to add an addition a model in the U.S. But green-minds don’t need to worry; the Civic hybrid is still available and Honda is putting the finishing touches on its Prius fighter.

Honda Fit Hybrid coming in 2015

Honda Fit Hybrid coming in 2015

Honda’s fuel-sipping Fit will turn an even deeper shade of green with new plans to launch a gasoline-electric hybrid version of the popular subcompact in the early 2010s.

The hybrid Fit, announced here early today, will be the fourth hybrid from Honda Motor Co. by 2015, as the Japanese automaker chases rival Toyota Motor Corp. in the low-emission car race.

Honda already was planning to roll out an all new dedicated hybrid vehicle early next year, to challenged Toyota’s Prius, followed by a sporty hybrid and a redesigned Civic hybrid.

The greener Fit’s arrival dispels Honda’s earlier skepticism about the viability of mounting pricey hybrid systems on small, low-priced cars that already get great mileage.

President Takeo Fukui has changed his tune — in time with changing market realities.

"The Fit has great fuel efficiency to begin with, and if you put in a hybrid, it’s going to get even better," Fukui said while announcing the car at a mid-year news conference. "So with crude oil prices going up this much, I think a Fit hybrid is now starting to make sense."
