Honda Fit Twist Crossover commercial [video]
Nithyanandh K, As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I'm, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!
For the uninformed, Honda Fit Twist is a crossover based on Honda Fit hatchback (we call it the Honda Jazz) specially conceived for Brazilian market.

The Fit Twist made its public debut at the Sao Paulo Motor Show last month. The car, just like its competitor Hyundai HB20 crossover, sports a horde of off road accessories to make a statement that it’s more than a hatchback.
Apart from the rough road package that include roof rails, scruff plates, plastic cladding for bumpers and wheel arches, the Fit Twist has a few cosmetic features to set itself apart form the regular Fit. The front grill is new, the headlamps are smoked and the tail lamps sport clear lens.
The car continues to use the same 1.5 litre flex-fuel motor which powers the regular hatchback and is good enough for 116 bhp while burning ethanol.
Don’t be fooled, the Fit Twist cannot off-road. The Twist also has no relationship to the proposed crossover on the Jazz platform to compete with the Nissan Juke.
