According to AutoCar Honda’s CEO Takanobu Ito has confirmed that the company is working on a compact SUV based on the next-generation Jazz (Fit) that will compete with the Nissan Juke.

The new compact SUV will hit markets in 2014 and will be pitched to the youth as a ‘younger brother to the new CR-V.’

Ito recently said that the Honda fit is very important ‘strategically’ to the brand and hopes to sell about 4 million to 7 million units by 2017.

    Sorry Honda, the FIT should be renamed as the FAT. The current car has grown to heavy and large from the brilliant original. IN any case it would make a fine platform for a JUKE competitor. Are we beginning to see signs of MOJO life back at Honda? I really hope so.
