TORRANCE, California — The redesigned 2015 Honda Fit, which will be more fuel efficient and spacious, is set for an unveiling at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show.

Honda said the subcompact Fit will "showcase significant advancements."

The third-generation Fit will feature a new platform and the automaker's Earth Dreams Technology powertrain. Honda did not release technical specifications, but the 2015 Fit is expected to be equipped with a 1.5-liter inline four-cylinder engine.

"The 2015 Fit builds on the current model's innovative packaging, flexible cargo capability and fun-to-drive character with spirited new styling, an even more spacious and refined interior packed with leading-edge connected car technologies," Honda said in a statement on Thursday.

The Fit will also "offer enhanced fuel-efficiency and performance," Honda noted.

The 2013 Fit with the 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine and five-speed manual transmission returns 27 mpg in city driving and 33 mpg on the highway, according to the EPA.

The Fit, which has been described as the "SUV of small cars," competes with the Chevrolet Sonic, Ford Fiesta, Hyundai Accent and Toyota Yaris.

The 2015 Fit debuts on January 13.

Edmunds says: The 2015 Honda Fit, which is expected to go on sale next year, promises to be practical, inexpensive and fun to drive.
