It is the best render i have seen until now.
It generated by Mag-X and will arrive in 2013.

If that were real, it would not be totally horrid looking.

I hope they tone down its mini-van styling.
Having that windshield extend over the front shock/strut towers and over crumple zone is just crazy.
Whats the point of having a dashboard that's over 2 feet deep?

Two reasons, 1. It makes the front cabin much larger than it really is, 2. Extra storage can be incorporated into the large dash top

A pillar back has more in common with a Freed.

To be fair, the Fit really does have one of the most spacious (if not the most spacious) interiors of the class. The dashboard is a bit extreme, but I wouldn't be suprised if it added to aerodynamics. It also makes the cabin feel light and airy.

With modern technology, you don't need a one-box design to have an aerodynamic car.
The Honda Fit (aka Jazz) has a drag coefficient of 0.33, there are many cars now that go below 0.30.

(Just look at how far the steering wheel is from the base of the windshield and how deep the dashboard is) Amazing!

The new Mercedes B-class for example has a drag coefficient of only 0.26 even though its a tall car with a shorter more vertical windshield.


For those who mentioned it, I also think they did it for looks since it does make the interior look even much bigger (we know ithe interior is really roomy) when the space above the dashboard is pretty much useless.
I'm not sure if Honda even put extra compartments there. Did they?

Nah, I've driven a US-spec Honda Fit, there's no extra storage there. In fact, IIRC interior cubbies are not as good as some other competitors.

The Fit also echoes and booms in the interior, which a monospace interior can do. By extending the windshield over the engine compartment, noise abatement becomes a problem
