2018 Honda Fit: Subcompact Car That Can “Fit” Your World Inside
The 2018 Honda Fit has been freshened for the 2018 model year. Available in its current third generation form since the 2015 model year, the 2018 Fit has been newly upgraded to provide even greater value in the subcompact car segment.
The 2018 Honda Fit is the lowest priced and most affordable new Honda. It is an ideal vehicle if you are on a tight budget, and you want the security of a brand new Honda vehicle with a new car warranty.
The 2018 Honda Fit Comes With An Amazing Amount Of Space
The 2018 Honda Fit offers a more creative approach to space utilization than your typical subcompact car. More tall and upright than most of its competitors, the Fit offers a low floor for loading and a wide variety of seating configurations for maximum utility and functionality.
The Honda Fit’s second-row Magic Seat folds forward to provide a huge 52.7 cubic feet of storage space inside, which is more than any of its competitors. The 60/40 split second row also folds partially for carrying both passengers and cargo. You can even fit a pet crate.
Honda Fit Changes For 2018
For its refresh, the 2018 Honda Fit gets sportier looks with newly redesigned front and rear fascias, an updated chrome and piano black grille, and some new wheel designs and finishes. Two new exterior color options are Orange Fury and Helios Yellow.
There’s A New Trim Level In The Fit Lineup
The 2018 Honda Fit comes in five trim levels: LX, Sport, EX, EX-L, and EX-L with Navi. The Sport trim is new for 2018.
Standard equipment on LX and all other trims includes auto on-off headlights, LED brake lights, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink, a rearview camera, tailgate spoiler, center storage console with an armrest, and a redesigned driver’s meter incorporating a large analog speedometer and digital tachometer.
The new Sport trim on the 2018 Fit features a new aggressive look with aero form features, integrated fog lights, and a front splitter highlighted in bright orange. A rear diffuser, similarly trimmed, completes the look. The 16” alloy wheels are finished in gloss black.
Inside, the Honda Fit Sport has a black interior with unique cross-hatched fabric on the seats and doors. The orange accent theme continues inside with bright orange stitching on the leather-wrapped steering wheel, seats, armrest, and the shift knob. Premium features previously available only on EX trims include a six-speaker 180-watt audio system, plus a 7” Display Audio touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The EX trim includes the Honda Sensing suite of driver assistance technologies, standard for the first time on both automatic and manual transmission models. Also included are Push Button Start, Smart Entry with Walk Away Auto Lock, Honda LaneWatch, XM Radio, and a power moonroof.
The EX-L adds leather-trimmed seats with front seat heating, and heated side mirrors with integrated turn signals. The top of the line EX-L with Navi gives you navigation with HD Traffic and Radio.
Power Plus Fuel Efficiency Under The Hood
The 2018 Honda Fit is powered by a 1.5L four-cylinder engine with Variable Cam Timing. It produces 128 horsepower with the automatic transmission and 130 horsepower with the manual. There’s positive news for those who prefer a manual transmission: the 2018 Honda Fit offers a six-speed manual in the LX, Sport, and EX trims. That’s great news if you like to row your own! Automatic fans will be relieved to know that all trims are available with the CVT.
EPA-estimated fuel economy for the 2018 Honda Fit are 29 to 33 MPG City and 36 to 40 MPG Highway, depending on the trim level and transmission selected.*
