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.
Looking at the new Sport model, you’ll notice the more aggressive front spoiler and rear diffuser, as well as the bright orange pin-striping, 16″ gloss-black alloys, chrome exhaust finisher and side sill garnishes. Inside, it’s got a black interior with orange contrast stitching.
The 2018 Fit also gets the Honda Sensing suite of advanced safety and driver assistance features, which is standard on EX trim versions and above. 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.
