i can not recollect where did i read, but honda CEO had mentioned sometime that they are planning 2 small cars. one of them in 2009 - which is fit/jazz and another smaller one - this may be the other one FIT

Honda-tif - the car looks good.
Thats a total photoshopped image. Look at the grill and bonnet. I am pretty sure Honda would introduce something much better.

from the front view to me it really looks like a concept car, which will never going to make its debut, but it seems honda also felt the burnt , and also wanted to taste the A segment numbers, all the best Honda

Perhaps a Honda employee active on this forum may have some inside info.

THe news is true but the car is still a PS job by Paultan. Its not official Honda stuff. he's taken stuff from teh Jazz and the G3 City and massaged it.

Honda already makes an A seg car for JDM only called the Life. This will be a cheaper 3rd world version of it.

This is a hoax, folks.

Have a look at the Pininfarina BO electric vehicle shown at the 2008 Paris Motor Show ... Pininfarina B0 - 2008 Paris Auto Show

A Honda City grill has been photoshopped on.

The person who's name appears on the images, if googled, is shown to be a photoshop artist of sorts.

Cheers,

A little off-topic - If a word spelled backwards is the same as it is spelled forward, like "civic", it is a palindrome. If it is a word like "not" that reverses to "ton", it is just a word spelled backward. There are words like Heteropalindromes (also known as semordnilaps, semi-palindromes, half-palindromes, reversegrams, mynoretehs, reversible anagrams, word reversals, or anadromes) used to describe words which form a word when spelled backwards but there is no special word for it - at least no word that has stood up long enough to justify its inclusion in a respectable dictionary.

Incidentally, TIF isn't even a word in the English language, TIFF is.

On the Honda small car front as mentioned earlier by Mpower in this thread, the Honda Life Dunk seems to be the most likely choice or perhaps the Honda Zest (which is essentially a Kei Car).
