Shot these pics of Honda Fit/Jazz on last Sunday.

The NHC is based on the same platform as Fit. Also there is a possibility that Honda might choose Fit as its small car for India.



The reversing light and the rear indicator light is similar to the NHC which was launched in 2004.

Now is this an import or is it a pre-launch test vehicle of Honda India?
Had an opinion that you cannot import such cars to india[low cost + less powerful engine].

Anyways great find.

Ps: Could these be the first possible spy pics Of the small car for india from honda.

The stock car may look not so great, but I have seen some kitted ones in Thailand and Malaysia and they look really good, the jazz also comes with Aftermarket Altezza head and tail lights which give a very good face lift.

It is indeed a Honda Showroom. I had gone to get my City serviced. Saw this Fit parked alongside other Hondas.

hellspawn, you are spot on! This car along with one Honda Odyssey is owned by the Honda company itself and is used to ferry people. Honda's factory is in Greater Noida and this is the reason you regularly see it on the expressway.

In my opinion it is an import and not a pre launch test vehicle. It has come for repairs and has been parked at the service centre for quite a while now. It seems that due to non availability of spares, the car is not getting repaired.

BTW, the Honda Odyssey which I mentioned above, was also parked. It had a broken windshield...
