Honda is plenty busy at the North American Auto Show in Detroit showcasing new innovation for the U.S. market. But it appears the Japanese carmaker has another surprise for its global markets — the Honda Fit Shuttle.

The website CarScoop.com is reporting a leak of brochure images showing a wagon-like version of the Honda Fit called the Fit Shuttle.

One image, featuring Japanese characters across the bottom, showcases a vehicle with an extended body, taller roofline and a resigned rear.

The Fit is called the Jazz in Europe, Australia, Asia and in other international markets.

Other images and brochure information, according to the website, detail the Fit Shuttle will be offered in two versions: a hybrid powered by the same IMA system as the Fit with a 1.3 liter i-VTEC engine featured on the five-door hatchback model. The other option is 1.5-liter gasoline-only engine.

The Fit Shuttle, which is not expected to be available in the United States, will reportedly be introduced in Japan within the next few weeks with sales to begin in March.
