Honda Fit Twist (Honda Jazz Twist) – Rendering
Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.
To debut at the 2016 Sao Paulo Auto Show.
Autos Segredos has posted a new rendering of the next generation Honda Fit Twist (Honda Jazz Twist) that will make its debut for the Brazilian market at the 2016 Sao Paulo Auto Show in November. So far, the Honda Fit Twist has been exclusive to the Brazilian market.
Basically a rugged, crossover version of the regular Honda Fit (Honda Jazz in India), the Honda Fit Twist features a different face that is similar to the company’s SUV range. Although it may be another variant of the B segment hatchback, the Jazz Cross in the rendering appears to feature a slightly distinctive design.
The outgoing Fit Twist is powered a 1.5-liter Flex-fuel engine delivering 116 hp and 153 Nm of torque, paired to either a manual gearbox or CVT. Expect the latest Fit Twist to use the same engine, albeit slightly revised for improved refinement and fuel efficiency.
As for the Indian market, Honda India has not confirmed plans of launching the Honda Jazz Cross, despite the growth of pseudo-crossover segment. 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, it competes against the Renault Sandero Stepway and the Hyundai HB20X.
