Face it: Honda’s been the best in the business at building cars in the Fit’s segment since it was really the Civic’s segment. The new-for-2015 model won’t exactly inspire confidence in Toyota Yaris salespeople across America, either.
The Fit now rolls on sixteens and sports LED tails in a nonchalant affirmation of B-Spec tuner culture. Though it is 1.6 inches shorter, unspecified increases in width and height lead to an additional 4.8 inches of rear legroom and nearly five extra cubic feet of cargo space. Total space with the rear seats folded is 52.7 cubic feet of space.
For the first time, you can get leather seats in a Fit. The arrival of Bluetooth and a significantly-sized infotainment screen will allow Honda to swipe back at the Fiesta.
The 1.5-liter four will twist out 130hp through a six-speed manual or CVT. Mileage is guesstimated at 41 highway, 33 city, 36 combined.
As long as ours don’t come from China, it will be hard to argue against the Fit in the mini-car market next year.
