Hardcore Honda Fit Type R Could Look Like This

/ Comments

Would you welcome a hardcore Honda Fit hatchback?

Last October, the all-new Honda Fit (also known as the Honda Jazz in other markets) debuted at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show with a bold new look and a hybrid-only powertrain. Sadly, the redesigned Honda Fit isn't being sold in America. While the affordable hatchback is still available to buy in the US for the 2020 model year, it's based on the last-generation model that was introduced back in 2014.

We still don't know if Honda plans to launch the new redesigned Fit in America, but we're keeping our fingers crossed because the styling is a considerable improvement over its predecessor.

In Europe, the redesigned Honda Fit will be sold with a two-motor hybrid powertrain that will presumably provide improved performance, but full powertrain specifications haven't been announced yet.

In the US, the Honda Fit is offered with a 1.5-liter, inline-4 gasoline engine producing up to 130 horsepower. But what if the Honda Fit was given the Type R treatment with sportier styling and a performance boost? It's unlikely to happen, as Honda hasn't announced any plans to make a Fit Type R. But thanks to a rendering by X-Tomi Design, we can at least imagine what it would look like if it entered production.

As you would expect, the hypothetical Honda Fit Type R looks far more aggressive than its standard sibling, thanks to a new front bumper with massive air intakes, a lip spoiler, carbon fiber side skirts, larger wheels, and a trunk-lid spoiler.

A performance upgrade and tweaked suspension would also compliment the sportier look, which would no doubt make the Fit Type R great fun to drive. With the recently unveiled Toyota GR Yaris also forbidden in America, we're craving some new hot hatchbacks right now. Sadly, a hardcore Honda Fit is unlikely to happen any time soon, so this digital rendering is the closest we're likely to get right now.
