Honda has fired up a website for its new Fit Shuttle. The B-segment fighter's larger twin is set to use the same center-tank design as the smaller of the duo, which means that buyers can look forward to a surprising amount of interior room. While the extended hatch will come with a gasoline drivetrain, the engineers have also cooked up a hybrid variant for squeezing the most out of every last whisper of fuel.

Word from Honda is that the Fit Shuttle will get an official unveil in March, which leads us to believe that the new creation will show its face at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show next month. That said, don't expect to see the Fit Shuttle on our shores. This machine is likely to keep itself tucked away as a JDM-only model, though there is some chance that the car will show up in Europe as well. You can check out the Japanese site here.

      My wife and I have a Fit and we love it. This would be a perfect vehicle for those who need a bigger vehicle and can't abide driving a minivan, especially with a diesel or the 2.4 liter Accord motor. Honda please bring this car to the US. You guys need a winner!

      (Spelling suggestion to a previous poster. It's spelled "gay" not "ghey")

      Im still waiting for the awful clear tails trend to go the way of the spinners.

      Well, I certainly like it more than the Prius MPV.

      I saw someone who photoshopped some wheels onto this vehicle and it actually looked pretty damn good. The OEM wheels are hideous.

        Yeah I like it more than prius mpv too but it is targeted just to Japanese.
        Will be interesting to see that works as a shuttle bus in Japan lol.

      The usual new Honda/Acura. Ugly and ghey as hell. At least they are going to build it, and not "SAY" they will build it.

      lol

      Honda should only bring this to the US if they put a diesel in it. I could forgive the disparate designs of the front and rear if they gave us a diesel.

      Good idea, but not so good looking.

      I really like this wagon. It reminds me of an '80s Civic wagon, when Honda was at the top of its game.

      As far as I can see, it should be good for Europe.

      Shark fin C-pillar? Citroën must be pleased.

        This POS? http://www.netcarshow.com/Honda-Civic_Wagon-1989-wallpaper.jpg

        Where does this have a shark fin pillar? I don't see it... On the other hand, do you know what a Citroën DS3 is? Here you go http://www.carsuk.net/wp-content/uploads/2009/09/Citroen-DS3-Launch.jpg

        It's a copy of the 80's Honda Civic Wagon not Citroen.
        • 3 Years Ago
        The only thing I'm hatin' is your lack of reading skills. I'm not saying this new Honda is a copy of the DS3. It isn't. However, it's C-pillar, and the C-pillar alone, is a copy of the DS3's B-pillar. Don't keep saying this pillar design comes from the old Civic Wagon, because it doesn't.

        Also, where the hell did I show hate for "the reliability of Honda automoblies"? Can you even read? I pointed out they are copying ONE design detail and suddenly I'm a hater? You're the one making a jackass of yourself.

        Learn to read. And investing in a healthy dose of comprehension skills while you're at it wouldn't be bad either.

        Yes, except it looks awful in this application. God Honda needs new and better designers...

        Spiritual successor to the Civic Shuttle from the 1980's.

      Honda has made a wagon version of the Fit for a long time. Were they to bring the Fit Wagon over it would have more space than the CRV, and much better mileage at a far lower price point. Just to mix it up, it is available in AWD as it the Fit for the JDM. Were Honda to return to the old and much beloved behaviors they'd bring over their best and not try to manage the sales winners and losers.

      They will have to do something about the artificial mouse fur carpet supplied with Fit.

        I'd like to see this in the US. This size class is starting to get crowded. This could give Honda something no one else has.

        Normally wagons don't do well here, but since the Fit is already a quirky hatch, not a conservative sedan, I don't see an issue.

      Don't care for it. The front and the rear just don't match. It looks like the back end (which looks fine on its own) was tacked on to the front (which looks OK on its own). I know that the back in was tacked on, but does it have to LOOK like it was? Together, the front and rear just don't work. The shark fin (the joining point), looks original and works great on the DS3, but it looks contrived and out of place here.
      • 3 Years Ago
      I think the fin-like C-Pillar is a bit overdone, but otherwise, it looks really nice!
