Going on sale in the US on April 14, Honda Fit facelift will have a price starting at $15,525 for the LX trim with 6-speed manual transmission.
The propulsion will be ensured by 1.5-liter engine developing 130 horsepower and 114 pound feet of torque. The engine offers a fuel-economy rating of 33/41/36 (city/highway/combined) when equipped with CVT gearbox.
The new revised version brings a larger interior with 4.9 cubic feet increase in passenger volume and a 4.8-inch increase in rear seat leg room compared to the previous Fit.
The adoption of a new frame structure, including Honda’s next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) front body structure will improve its safety performance.
The 1.5 liter gasoline engine can be paired with two gearbox: a 6-speed manual and all-new CVT with G-Shift Control. The changes operated to the four cylinder engine deliver an 11 percent increase in peak horsepower to 130, and a 7.5 percent more peak torque to 114 lb.-ft.
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.
Inside, there are soft-touch materials, black with silver accented design surfaces and controls, and blue backlit instrument dials. The available Display Audio touchscreen interface will be available with leather seating (EX-L models).
The standard features list on the new Fit will include auto on-off headlights, LED brake lights, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink and a center storage console with armrest. On the options list, the clients will have to choose between Smart Entry Push Button Start, electric moonroof, 7-inch touchscreen Display Audio7 with next-generation HondaLink and heated leather seats.
