Honda’s restyled 2018 Fit is arriving at dealerships today, boasting a new look, updated tech, more safety features and a starting price of just over $16,000.

The updated and even more connected Fit also adds a new Sport trim to go with the two new exterior colors, dubbed Helios Yellow and Orange Fury.

The suite includes Adaptive Cruise Control, Collision Mitigation Braking System, Forward Collision Warning, Lane Keeping Assist System and Road Departure Mitigation with Lane Departure Warning.

Also new is the 7″ touchscreen display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which is standard on Fit Sport, EX and EX-L trims.

Powering the 2018 Fit is a 1.5-liter 4-cylinder i-VTEC engine, good for 130 HP (132 PS) and up to 114 lb-ft (154 Nm) of torque. The power unit works in conjunction with the re-tuned suspension, upgraded steering and additional body reinforcements.

    Memo to Honda…”offer a 2nd interior choice” other than BLACK like light gray or beige to broaden the appeal of this car.

  • SteersUright

    This care should’ve gotten at least 150hp in 2017. Its a do everything sort of vehicle, and being painfully or even dangerously slow is totally unnecessary for something this light.

    I hate this new Honda trend with removing CD players off every car in there lineup. Looks like I won’t be buying a Honda ever again.

    • Kenneth

      It’s not a “new Honda trend”- many, if not most, manufacturers have been deleting the CD player in their newest models (I’ve noticed Subaru still offers it). It’s fast becoming obsolete technology.
