Honda will only be officially launching its new Fit Shuttle in Japan in March, but the company has already set about featuring information about the vehicle for the domestic market via a dedicated web page.

We ran the news about the leaked brochures of the vehicle last month. As mentioned previously, two JDM versions of the compact MPV will go on sale – a Hybrid version equipped with a 1.3 litre i-VTEC + IMA system as well as a 15X model featuring a 1.5 litre i-VTEC pot.

Updated details are of transmission types – the hybrid only comes with a CVT, while the petrol version is available in both front-wheel drive (with a CVT box) and four-wheel drive form (with a five-speed auto transmission).
