2015 Honda Fit Hybrid JDM
We've got one more debut confirmed for next month's Detroit Auto Show, as Honda has announced that it will be showing off the 2015 Fit in the Motor City. Honda has released a singular image of the new Fit's rear taillight, above.

From the sole image, we can see that the American-spec Fit will share at least its taillights with the Japanese variant, which we've helpfully included an image of to the right. Now, technically, the blue car to the right is the Fit Hybrid, a car we aren't expecting to see in the US market. But the gallery of images we've included below should give those interested in the car a very good idea of what the new Fit will look like when it hits the auto show stage next month.

As for what will be under hood when it debuts in January, Honda is touting its Earth Dreams Technology engine, which we take to mean some sort of four-cylinder, gas-powered mill. Expect excellent fuel economy from the new car, and according to the Japanese brand, "leading-edge connected car technologies."

Expect the full raft of details on the new Fit when it makes its official debut at the 2014 North American International Auto Show on January 13. For now, scroll down to read Honda's press release.

      I wish Honda would slap that new 1.5L turbo in there and call it a Fit Si.

      Odd little shifter. Interior seems a bit plain, but then again this is an entry level vehicle. I looked at the current generation and found the interior pretty cheap, especially compared to others like the Chevy Sonic. The Fit's true value proposition has always been the interior's flexibility. Surprised nobody has tried to match that. Exterior styling is an improvement but still a bit awkward in my eyes. But that's a subjective thing.

      Forget the Fit, I want to see the City that they showed in India. First Honda small car I've liked in decades.

      When is a "reveal" not a "reveal"? When it's already been revealed elsewhere. Seriously, Honda? Do your PR hacks not know about this thing called "the Internet" that gives us access to images and information from around the world? Why "tease" something we've already seen? It's absolutely astounding how clueless and incompetent some automotive marketing people are.

      The tail lights aren't the same. Did you bother to look at the photos?

        You might want to scrutinise the pictures more closely. The clusters are the same; the North American cars will be modified to meet FMVSS as opposed to UNECE.

        Meeeda is correct. The exterior shapes are the same but the actual tail lamp assemblies are different. The JDM car has a largess center clear opening, I would imagine for an amber turn signal, while the USDM one has a red led area for US regulations. There's also a clear or chrome section on the JDM cars reflector on the hatch. I have no idea what that would be for.

      I hate the driver's view looking outside the car. The window frame and small side windows ahead of the front doors seem like they would hinder good visibility, especially at night. The window framing looks like a major distraction. Sorry to say, it's also homely and looks like so many others currently on the road made by Mitsubishi, Nissan and Toyota. The interior screams low budget upon first impression. Didn't they have this problem with the new Civic until they quickly did a remake to resolve the cheap look? I'm sure the Fit probably has great quality and reliability but tell me why this car has to look so odd. Also, I don't care how much high strength steel is in it I would still not want to get hit in a car like this. It's just too small for anything more than quick trips within town and seems a couple of notches up from a golf cart to me. The only thing worse looking is a Smart car.

        I have been driving a Honda Civic HB for the last 18 years. Honda's are the best car for your money out there . They run forever and they are sporty. All the kids love them and replacement parts are easy to find. Gerard56 you are clueless unless you are 6.7 and weigh over 300lbs. I also own a 1965 Mustang 289. So I know a good car design when drive one. The new FiX RS will be a top seller in the US. and will have a very high resale value. I will be replacing my 1996 Honda with the NEW Fix RS this spring. I don't see very many Fords and Nissans on the road after 20 years. That tells me all I need to know! Honda Fix RS, here I come.

      Honda better bring the Hybrid this time... I'd give them a thumbs up if they even bring the Hybrid AWD
