Honda is launching the 2019 Fit in the US market, with the first cars set to arrive at dealerships on April 30.
The popular Honda Fit is priced from $17,080 MSRP, including a $890 destination and handling fee, which is exactly the same with last year’s model.
The small Honda continues to offer unparalleled versatility and a city-friendly character, aided by the standard six-speed manual gearbox. The 2019 range includes the entry-level Fit LX, the aggressive-looking Fit Sport, the upgraded Fit EX and the more luxurious Fit EX-L.
The 2019 Honda Fit can also be fitted with the company’s Sensing suite of driver assistance technologies that include systems like Adaptive Cruise Control, Collision Mitigation Braking System, Forward Collision Warning, Lane Keeping Assist System and Road Departure Mitigation with Lane Departure Warning.
All Fit models come equipped with features like a rearview camera, Bluetooth, auto on-off headlights and LED taillights. Customers have eight available color options: Helios Yellow Pearl, Orange Fury, Lunar Silver Metallic, Modern Steel Metallic, Crystal Black Pearl, Milano Red, Aegean Blue Metallic, and the new Platinum White Pearl.
Thanks to its clever packaging, such as having the fuel tank underneath the front-row seats, the 2019 Honda Fit continues offering an impressive cargo capacity, with a class-leading 52.7 cubic feet of space available with the rear seats folded down.
Sport models and up also come with a seven-inch infotainment system that features a high-resolution touchscreen display, Apple Car Play and Android Auto.
The engine remains unchanged, meaning a 1.5-liter i-VTEC four-cylinder unit with 130hp and 114 lb.-ft. of torque. The 2019 Honda Fit carries an EPA fuel economy rating of 29/36/31 mpg (city/highway/combined)3 for the manual transmission, and 33/40/36 mpg for CVT models.
