The U.S. market won’t get the all-new Honda Fit in the 2020 model year, but we’re not here to judge and we’ll leave it to you to decide whether it’s good news or bad news. However, consider this: the previous generation of the model sold as Jazz outside of North America can be turned into an awesome all-terrain.
The living proof comes from Jefferson Palma, who manages a YouTube channel documenting the creation of his lifted off-road exploration vehicle. The chain’s oldest Fit-related video was about a year ago, which is probably when most of the work on the car was done.
The vehicle itself is a 2015 Fit that received 30-inch all-terrain tires, a functional tuba from a Toyota Land Cruiser and flared fenders from a Jeep Cherokee, as The drive reports. At the rear there is a spare tire holder, a tow hook, a signal booster antenna and two small jerry cans
In one of his latest videos, Palma explores the Reward mine, aka Brown Monster Mine, located in the desert region of eastern California. It is surprisingly large and you can actually drive a small car through certain tunnels. It is “certainly not a Sunday record”.

“Be prepared, this route is not for the faint of heart or ill-prepared,” explains Palma in the description of the video. “A mistake can have serious consequences. The reader is extremely dangerous and risky. There is little room for error on this route. Not recommended to drive in the mine. The mine is full of areas where there are signs of collapse. Drivers who ignore advice are extremely careful and have contingencies. “
Fortunately, Palma and its all-terrain cut are perfect in shape (pun intended) for this kind of adventure. Watch the video and enjoy both the unusual all-terrain and the beautiful trail.
