What's New for the 2018 Honda Fit?

When Honda set to work designing the fourth version of the Fit hatchback, they implemented a few new changes and safety features. Some of the most noteworthy updates in this model include incremental styling modifications, revamped safety features, and an updated audio system that supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Additionally, Honda rolled out a sleeker sports model. Specific style modifications include a redesigned grille that flows more seamlessly with the headlights. It's a two-piece chrome and black grille that gives the front end a more cohesive design. Additionally, the fog light positions have been placed at a sharper angle to give the vehicle a sportier look. The 2018 Honda Fit has also been introduced with new 16-inch wheels, which come finished in black instead of chrome. The chrome has been reserved for the exhaust, while Honda also added a rear diffuser and bright orange highlights at the front of the vehicle.

2018 Honda Fit Trims and Features

While the new safety features are available with every trim, the LX is the only model that will not come with the new audio system options, natty body kit, 16-inch aluminum wheels, or the leather-bound shift knob and steering wheel. Each trim comes with four doors and has a five passenger capacity. The LX CVT gets 33 mpg in the city and 40 mpg on the highway, while the Fit Sport Manual gets 29/36 mpg city/highway. Some of the more noteworthy features for the 2018 Honda Fit include gas-pressurized shock absorbers, a front anti-roll bar, electric power-assist steering and a 10.6 gallon fuel tank. Additionally, the frame is protected by strut front suspension with coil rings, torsion beam rear suspension and coil rings. More features include four way passenger seat adjustments and six way driver's seat adjustments, remote keyless entry, cruise control with steering wheel controls, trip computer, and an outside temperature gauge.

Horsepower for the LX is 128 at 6,600 rotations per minute, while the Fit Sport comes in at 130 horsepower at 6,600 RPMs. All manual models come with a standard 6-speed transmission.

Honda Fit Safety

VSA Electronic Stability Control (ESC) reduces the risks of skidding by helping the vehicle maintain better traction on icy, wet or slick roads. Additionally, ABS technology and driveline traction control supports better handling on the roads. The Honda Fit also comes standard with side impact beams and dual stage driver and passenger seat-mounted side airbags. There are also front airbags on both the driver and passenger sides. Curtain first and second row airbags also protect passengers and an occupancy sensor determines which airbags to deploy. Low tire pressure warnings advise drivers of problems with the tires that might affect steering or traction. Rear child safety locks and three-point safety harnesses help prevent injuries that might otherwise be more severe. Additionally, a backup camera helps to avoid rear collisions by giving the driver a more concise image of the road.
