Mugen has been known for years as the performance tuning firm that has produced high-performance Honda Civics and most recently a more powerful version of the Honda CR-Z. Mugen Euro, which is responsible for the supercharged CR-Z, reportedly wants to make a high performance version of the Honda Fit, also known as the Jazz in Europe.
Mugen Euro already produces a number of styling upgrades for the Jazz, but the firm wants to make an even more powerful version of the small car. To put more power under the hood of the Fit, Mugen Euro could use either the supercharged hybrid powertrain from the CR-Z or a normally-aspirated 2.0L VTEC from the last Civic Type R.
According to Mugen Euro’s general manager Colin Whittamore, it “wouldn’t be much of a stretch” to put the 197-hp supercharged engine from the CR-Z hybrid in the Fit.
The supercharged CR-Z is going to be officially unveiled at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in July.
