Honda Fit Twist is a rugged compact for Brazil

At the 2012 Sao Paulo International Motor Show, many automakers are showing that they are serious about the Brazilian market. Honda today unveiled its new Fit Twist for the Brazilian market. The model was developed by Honda local automobile R&D team in Brazil.

“While maintaining the ease of use and driving comfort of the original Fit, the ‘FIT twist’ offers a sportier vehicle image with a bold design realized through adoption of an exclusive front grill and roof rails as well as an exclusive seat surface material,” Honda said in a statement.

Power for the Honda Fit Twist comes from a 1.5 liter flex-fuel engine making 116-hp and is mated to manual or an automatic transmission.

Honda also promised that the Acura brand will launch in Brazil in 2015.
