In the car industry, the name of a vehicle can change depending on the country it is being sold in. For example, the American Honda Fit’s quirky appearance and sporty name appeal to a young, hip crowd. In Europe, the Honda Fit is known as the Jazz, and just like the Fit, the Honda Jazz is the Zooey Deschanel of the automotive world—quirky and cute as a button. While Fit has already gone on sale in America, Europe is still waiting for the 2015 Jazz debut, which the Japanese automaker announced will be at the 2014 Paris Motor Show this coming weekend.
While the Jazz’s new design isn’t far off track from the newest Fit, it does have a few differences. A shark fin antenna adds a twist to the Jazz’s silhouette, while a new set of wheels and rear wing give the hatchback a slightly different feel than its American sibling. The biggest difference between the Fit and the Jazz, though, is that the European hatchback comes with Honda’s newest 1.3-liter i-VTEC Earth Dreams engine under the hood, boasting better fuel economy than previous models, whereas the Fit comes standard with a 1.5-liter engine.
While the Jazz won’t be coming to American soil anytime soon, you can still get a gander at its American twin by going to Basney Honda today and seeing the 2015 Honda Fit for yourself!
