2016 Honda Fit Twist (Honda Jazz Twist) spotted testing for the first time – Brazil
Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.
Launch market likely to be Brazil.
Autos Segredos has posted the first spyshots of the second generation 2016 Honda Fit Twist testing in Brazil. Reports suggest that the new Honda Fit Twist will hit showrooms across Brazil from mid-2016.
The Honda Fit Twist is a spruced-up, crossover version of the previous generation Honda Fit (or Honda Jazz in India) that has been exclusive to the Brazilian market, so far. Although the spyshots do not reveal much of the exterior design, IndianAutosBlog’s rendering below gives an idea of what can be expected from the all-roader.
Power for the outgoing Honda Fit Twist in Brazil is sourced from a 1.5-liter Flex-fuel engine delivering 116 hp and 153 Nm of torque, paired to either a manual gearbox or CVT. The latest Fit Twist is likely to use the same engine, albeit slightly revised for better refinement and fuel efficiency.
Despite being an appealing segment in the Indian market, Honda India has not yet confirmed plans of launching the Honda Fit Twist (or Honda Jazz Twist as it’s likely to be called here). If they do consider, the Jazz Twist will rival established models like the Hyundai i20 Active, VW Cross Polo and Fiat Avventura. In South America the car will compete with the Renault Sandero Stepway and the Hyundai HB20X.
