We don’t have information about the possibility that carmaker will create a new platform but we are deeply convinced that they will reduce weight with new materials. Sources close to Japanese carmaker claim that overall weight of 2019 Honda Fit will be around 68 pounds less. We still don’t know what will Honda do with dimensions; on the other hand, world trend is about increasing the cabin space.
