Honda felt it was time for its subcompact hatch to get back into the gym, and the 2018 Honda Fit updates help whip that little whip into an even better shape. In the world of today’s self-love, everyone wants to settle for the camera. The Fit is no different. All trim levels feature a revised front fascia, highlighted by a new black and chrome two-piece upper grille that has been designed to evoke a lower, wider, and more athletic appearance.
A new infotainment system will begin in 2018. The Standard in Sport, EX and EX-L systems, the Audio Display system wins a volume button as well as the smartphone projection support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The upgraded graphics are also part of the upgrade for 2018. Too bad, Honda continues to offer LaneWatch in the refreshed Fit, instead of a proper warning point warning system with a rear warning crossing.
The 2018 Honda Fit feels happiest on the motorway buzzing between 60 and 70 mph, and thanks to a thicker glass and additional insulation under the sheet, it is quieter in the cabin. But when you maintain high speed, engine noise can harm any zen derived from these improvements. Inside, the additions to the new Sport trim include contrasting stitching and argyle style fabric seats that increase the ante style and lend a slightly higher feel to the interior.
Also available for the first time in the 2018 Honda Fit is the Honda Sensing Suite, which includes a track assist, a collision brake and other active safety features. These components can be equipped with all Fit models and are equipped with EX and EX-L models as standard.
The new level of sports lag is between the LX and EX models. Like the name suggestions, the sport trim adds a more aggressive look to the Fit with a more sculpted body kit at the front, sides and rear of the vehicle, as well as plain black 16-inch alloys, a rear diffuser With three hindrances, and other subtle visual adjustments. Inside, the sport trim receives a unique cross fabric for the seats and door trim and orange accent seam, with a leather-wrapped steering wheel and a shift knob.
The 1.5-liter line-four makes 130 horsepower when equipped with the standard six-speed manual, but 128 hp when coupled to the optional automatic transmission continuously variable. Automated emergency braking, guidance assistance and adaptive speed control are optional.
