The Honda Fit has always been known for its spacious interior, dynamic driving and fuel-efficient engine. For 2018, the Honda Fit retains all these features, but it also offers a new, sportier version, and especially a lot more safety and connectivity technology. With the additions this year, the Fit is able to stand out even more from the other subcompact cars in its segment.
Reduced fuel consumption for the new 2018 Honda Fit
The new 2018 Honda Fit is powered by a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine developing 130 horsepower and 114 lb-ft of torque. Available from $ 15,190, the Honda Fit comes standard with a manual transmission while a continuously variable automatic transmission is also offered.
The latter offers strong performance while being quite impressive in the efficiency department. Indeed, with the CVT box, the 2018 Honda Fit offers an average fuel consumption rating of only 6.5 liters per 100 kilometers, making it one of the most fuel-efficient cars in its segment. In terms of cargo space, the new 2018 Honda Fit still offers nearly 1,500 liters in its trunk with the rear seat down. That’s more than many sport utility vehicles.
The 2018 Honda Fit also offers a new Sport version that adds 16-inch wheels with a black finish, a unique orange paint, and chrome accessories.
