As predicted, the all-new 2015 Honda Fit made its first public appearance in U.S. trim at the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Expected to share virtually all of the styling elements seen in the domestic market Honda Fit previewed here in July, the third-generation of this sub-compact crossover boasts a comprehensive upgrading that touches all aspects of its design. 

While retaining all of the functionality and flexibility found in the current iteration, the 2015 Fit will match its new sense of exterior style with a larger and better appointed passenger compartment. Spun from an all-new platform, this versatile Honda hauler also is expected to earn class-leading safety ratings and will deliver even better fuel economy than the existing Fit thanks to an Earth Dreams Technology powertrain. Although Honda has yet to comment on what will motivate the U.S. Fit, it's believed to be a direct-injected version of the automaker's i-VTEC 1.5-liter 4-cylinder. At present, there are no plans to bring the home-market Fit Hybrid to America.

All versions of the 2015 Honda Fit headed for showrooms in this country will be assembled at the automaker's new assembly plant in Celaya, Mexico, that opens in the spring. The Celaya facility also will be home to Honda's upcoming compact crossover. Based on the new Fit architecture and on sale in Japan later this month as the Honda Vezel, it's due to go on sale here in late 2014.
