2015 Honda Fit Buyers Guide and Pricing: Cute and Edgy New Style, Latest HondaLink Touchscreen and 41MPG



2015 Honda FIt1 gif

The 2015 Honda Fit is updated with a subtle but attractive redesign, vastly more comfortable cabin, and tech like the latest (and very good) HondaLink touchscreen controls.

Paired with the Fit's exceptional usefulness as a city car with the trunk size of a SUV -- and the economy of a supermini -- the 2015 Fit from about $16,000 is an exceptional little machine.

Most shoppers will go for the EX-L or the EX-L with Navigation thanks to the top trims standard automatic transmission. The auto is a CVT unit, however, so sporty people might like the light and slick six-speed manual instead. Pour the money into the newly-available Sport front grille and maybe even the power moonroof!

This hatchback has a black belt in versatility. Whether you are carrying passengers, cargo or both, the Fit has four unique configuration modes so you can get just about anyone or anything wherever you need it to go.

 

Utility Mode

Fold down the 2nd-Row Magic Seat® and the inside of the Fit becomes a cavernous cargo container with 52.7 cu ft of volume. For a small car, that’s room for some serious freight[1].

[1] Carrying too much cargo or improperly storing it can affect the handling, stability and operation of this vehicle. Follow applicable load limits and loading guidelines.

 

Long Mode

If you fold down the right side of the rear seat and fold back the front passenger seat, you can haul gear up to 7 feet, 9 inches in length. Crazy to think something that long can fit in a sub-compact car.

 

Tall Mode

Sometimes you need a little extra cargo height, and folding up the Magic Seat® gives you nearly 4 feet of room, top to bottom. That’s a cool trick that comes in pretty handy at times.

Refresh Mode

If the only place you want to go is to sleep, you can turn your Fit into a mobile relaxation space. Take off the front head restraints, fold back the front seats and let the chill time begin[1].

[1] Only use Refresh Mode when the vehicle is safely parked. Return the seat and head restraint to their original position before driving.

All New 2015 Honda Fit Designed to Top the Subcompact Class

Both bigger and smaller in all the right places, more powerful and more fuel efficient, the all-new Fit is more advanced, refined, fun-to-drive and goes on sale in the second half of April

 

With best-in-class passenger and cargo space, increased power, 41 mpg fuel economy rating (LX with Continuously Variable Transmission [CVT]) and more refined, yet sporty dynamics, the completely redesigned 2015 Fit is poised to lead the subcompact segment. Add to this an abundance of class-above standard features including roofline spoiler, LED taillights, Bluetooth® connectivity and a segment-exclusive rearview camera for a starting price just $100 more than the outgoing model.

The 2015 Fit goes on sale at Honda dealerships nationwide the second half of April, with a manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP)2 starting at $15,525 for the LX trim with 6-speed manual transmission. All Fit models are powered by a new, higher power and highly efficient 1.5-liter engine developing 130 horsepower3 and 114 pound feet of torque4,with an EPA fuel-economy rating of 33/41/36 (city/highway/combined)5 for the LX with CVT.

"I'm thrilled that we've been able to greatly enhance and add to the Fit's already excellent attributes to provide Honda customers with class-above features and refinement at such a value price point," said Jeff Conrad, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Honda. "The 2015 Fit is practical, roomy, efficient, affordable and perhaps best of all, great fun to drive."

The Honda Fit has always been known for its practicality, fuel efficiency and affordability, but also its feature richness, high-quality interior and driving enjoyment. For the all-new Fit, the unique combination of these traits has been further enhanced with even greater versatility, fresh styling, a more dynamic and refined driving experience, and substantially upgraded technology and luxury features.

Outstanding versatility is fundamental to the design of the 2015 Fit. With class-leading interior space and versatility courtesy of its center-mounted fuel tank and ingenious Magic Seat®, the Fit epitomizes smart functionality with spacious and comfortable seating for five and the ability to carry voluminous cargo, including long and tall items. The larger interior features a remarkable 4.9 cubic feet increase in passenger volume and a 4.8-inch increase in rear seat leg room compared to the previous Fit, all the more remarkable considering its even more compact exterior footprint, including a 1.6-inch decrease in overall length.

A highly space-efficient new body structure pairs with an all-new chassis to create a completely new, more rigid and lighter subcompact platform. The new Fit's platform features a longer wheelbase and numerous improvements to front and rear suspension and steering systems that improve overall driving dynamics. The net effect of these upgrades is a more settled and stable, yet nimble and sporty ride, with greatly improved steering and improved ride comfort and quietness. The adoption of a new frame structure, including Honda's next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) front body structure, also benefits safety performance, with the 2015 Fit targeting the highest-available crash-safety ratings of both the U.S. government and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

The 2015 Fit also raises the bar on acceleration fun and fuel efficiency with major advances to its powertrain. A new Earth Dreams Technology™ engine significantly increases power, torque and throttle response with support from two newly developed transmissions – a slick-shifting 6-speed manual and all-new CVT with G-Shift Control. The 1.5L DOHC 4-cylinder engine with i-VTEC+VTC valve and timing control features direct fuel injection, reduced weight and friction, increased compression ratio, and other changes to deliver an 11 percent increase in peak horsepower to 1303, and a 7.5 percent increase in peak torque to 114 lb.-ft4.

The 6MT is an all-new design, with closer ratios to aid performance and a wider overall ratio range to improve fuel efficiency. The newly-developed CVT enhances engine responsiveness by providing quicker and smoother acceleration while improving fuel efficiency with a wider ratio range and reduced internal friction.

With the combination of the new engine and transmissions, the Fit has an EPA fuel-economy rating of 29/37/32 (city/highway/combined)5 for the manual transmission, 33/41/36 for the LX trim with CVT and 32/38/35 for the EX and EX-L trim with CVT. The new Fit sports a fresh and dynamic exterior design with slimmer headlights that integrate into a solid grille design and an aggressive lower intake. Chiseled sides emphasize the wheels and the dynamically tapered roofline that terminates in a color-matched spoiler. Eight colors, including several new and vibrant options, accentuate the fresh exterior styling.

Inside, the increased interior room and visibility create a sense of airy spaciousness, which is complemented by upgraded, soft-touch materials that raise the feeling of quality. The rich and sophisticated black with silver accented design of the interior surfaces and controls, and blue backlit instrument dials are stylish and functional. The available Display Audio touchscreen interface and first-ever leather seating (EX-L models) further increase the premium feel of this new Fit.

The 2015 Fit boasts a high level of standard and available features and now aligns with other Honda models by being offered in LX, EX, and EX-L trims, each with a higher spec than the previous equivalent trim. New standard features on all Fit models include auto on-off headlights, LED brake lights, Bluetooth®6 HandsFreeLink® and a center storage console with armrest. Items such as Smart Entry Push Button Start, a one-touch operated moonroof, 7-inch touchscreen Display Audio7 with next-generation HondaLink and heated leather seats are among the upgrades available for the first time in Fit.

The Fit also features a long list of standard safety features. That list includes Vehicle Stability AssistTM (VSA®) with traction control, side curtain airbags with rollover sensor, Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist, and Honda's next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure. The new Fit targets the highest available crash-safety ratings: a five-star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), and a TOP SAFETY PICK rating from the (IIHS). Standard drive-assistive features on all trims include a multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines and expanded view driver's mirror. The Honda LaneWatch™ display is standard on EX and above trims.

The new U.S.-market Fit will be produced for the first time in North America at an all-new plant in in Celaya, Mexico. View, build and price at 2014 Honda Fit at automobiles.honda.com/fit.
