2019 Honda Fit Rumored to Receive 1.0L Turbo Engine, Hybrid Powertrain


The next-generation 2019 Honda Fit will reportedly receive a turbocharged engine and hybrid variant.

A Japanese publication has rendered what it believes the 2019 Honda Fit will look like, gaining similar styling elements found in newer Honda models. It also reported that the fourth-generation Honda Fit will likely be outfitted with a 1.0-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine, which could be sourced from the European Civic sporting 127 horsepower. Another possibility is a hybrid variant sporting a 1.5-liter i-VTEC four-cylinder engine paired with the Japanese automaker’s i-MMD system.

The magazine also believes that the new Honda Fit will lose around 66 pounds from its weight. As for its design, the front end resembles the new Civic, which isn’t a surprise, as Honda is working on standardizing its design language across the lineup. The “Solid Wing Face” can be seen with a silver element on the front grille and sharper LED headlights. Minor changes can be seen on the front bumper as well.

The third-generation Honda Fit was introduced as a 2015 model year, so it’s also a possibility that Honda will give the model a facelift rather than a whole new generation come 2019.
