2018 Honda FIT – TEST

You could say that the Fit is synonymous with fun. It’s fun to drive, full of fun tech features and has room for fun when you’re riding with four of your friends. Plus, it’s even fun to park. All those small
spots will suddenly feel bigger. That’s because Honda made the guesswork a lot easier in the 2017 Fit with features like its multi-angle rearview camera as well as the available Honda LaneWatch™ blind spot display. Together, they will help you with the parts of the road that are a little hard to see. Inside its sporty exterior, the 60/40 Split 2nd-Row Magic Seat® offers four configurations, which make its generous passenger volume and class-leading cargo volume (with the rear seats down) feel even more substantial. And the available paddle shifters add a dimension of fun to the available continuously variable transmission (CVT), while its Earth Dreams™ engine is designed to increase efficiency without sacrificing performance. Add in Honda-tuned handling and this is a ride you’ll want to share. Plus, with impressive fuel economy ratings and Honda’s legendary safety features,the Fit has a good head on its shoulders. Even when it comes to parking.

Safety

Solid on safety.

At Honda, we strive to provide a high level of standard safety features to help ensure the safety of occupants, other drivers and even pedestrians. This added peace of mind helps our drivers maintain the confidence to enjoy every road to the fullest.

Controlled Braking.

To assist with safe stopping, the 4-wheel Anti-lock Braking System* (ABS) is designed to help you maintain control under hard braking conditions, while Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) helps to optimize braking power based on weight distribution inside the vehicle. In addition, Brake Assist is engineered to help improve braking performance by applying brake pressure when a panic stop is detected.

Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA®) with Traction Control.

Vehicle Stability Assist* with Traction Control is designed to sense and help correct oversteer and understeer scenarios to enhance handling and cornering stability, while Traction Control is designed to minimize wheel spin when accelerating on loose or slippery surfaces, helping to inspire greater driver confidence.

Hill Start Assist*.

If you take your foot off the brake, this feature is engineered to temporarily maintain brake pressure to help prevent your Fit from starting to roll backwards when stopped on an incline.

Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure.

The highly innovative, next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure is engineered to help disperse frontal impact energy to enhance occupant protection, while more effectively controlling it in a severe collision to help prevent intrusion into the passenger cabin.

Six standard airbags.

The cabin of the Fit contains six standard airbags. It features an i-SRS front airbag system, as well side curtain airbags designed to deploy in the event of a rollover. Plus, it has SmartVent™ side airbags, which are designed to deploy in a manner that mitigates the risk of injury to out of position or smaller occupants.

Seat belt safety.

The Fit helps prepare you for the unexpected with 3-point height-adjustable front seat belts with automatic tensioning system and 3-point rear seat belts.
