The Fit may be a small car, but it's a powerful little guy. The 130-hp, 1.5-liter, i-VTEC® 4-cylinder Engine with Earth Dreams technology gives the Fit plenty of zip. To control all those ponies, Honda offers two transmissions. The standard offers a new sixth gear. For those that like to have the shifting done for them, Honda offers a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). The CVT allows the engine to always operate at the most efficient rpm level, helping to maximize efficiency whatever the driving conditions.
The new 2015 Fit looks like fun. It has a slick, new body design and a wider stance. And it all helps give the Fit a look that, for a compact car, is pretty tough. Unique styling and accents are everywhere you look on the Fit, starting right up front. The lines and angles of the grille and headlights are subtle details that give the Fit a lot of personality. From the outside, you might be hard-pressed to tell that this is a new Fit, but it is. It rides on a new chassis and has all-new sheet metal, but it's styled to look similar to the old model. Still, there are some differences worth noting, like the larger headlights and taillights, a bit more chrome and a more aggressive grille. The new Fit is shorter overall than the one it replaces, but is slightly wider and rides on a longer wheelbase, meaning interior volume is up this year. Wheels are standard 16-inchers.
The Honda Fit is a popular choice for small-car fans, urban dwellers or anyone who wants efficient, smartly packaged, fun-to-drive transportation. But Honda has faced problems importing the diminutive subcompact into the U.S.: The Japanese-built car isn't profitable thanks to exchange rates, so Honda limited the number it brought in to the U.S. For more information on this vehicle, feel free to give us a call today!
