Honda and its upscale Acura division will make at least two significant bits of news during the North American International Auto Show next month.
On the Honda side, the maker will introduce its completely redesigned Fit subcompact, while Acura will pull the wraps off an all-new sedan, the TLX. There may be a few surprises in store, as well, a senior Honda official all but confirming that the maker is getting ready to announce plans to bring the Civic Type R to the U.S. market.
The new 2015 Honda Fit will be larger yet lighter, more powerful, more fuel-efficient – and boast a more flexible interior than the outgoing hatchback, according to Mike Accavitti, the maker’s senior vice president for U.S. automotive operations. It will, he explained during a Detroit background session, be “perfect for the next generation of buyers who don’t want to sacrifice space, performance or features.”
