Exterior

With clean lines and a large glass location, the 2015 Honda Fit combines a more muscular shape, thanks to the wider body and even more pronounced character lines, while maintaining the energy of its high-roof hatchback design. The big rear hatch has a low liftover providing sufficient access to the cavernous freight location. The rear of the car sports a roof spoiler and below-bumper diffuser which not only improves the automobile’s stylish appearances, but likewise enhances aerodynamics. EX and EX-L models sport aluminum-alloy wheels, extra chrome trim on the grille and rear liftgate, and fog lights.

Engine

Just about everything is new under the hood. The four-cylinder engine is still 1.5 liters in size, but numerous revisions, consisting of the addition of direct injection innovation, help it produce a bit even more power and much better fuel efficiency than in the past. It produces 130 horsepower and 114 pound-feet of torque. A brand-new six-speed manual transmission (the previous Fit only had five forward gears) and a new constantly variable automatic transmission CVT (replacing a conventional five-speed automatic) are also part of the deal. 2015 Honda Fit EX-L with Navi flew zero to 60 miles per hour in 8.8 seconds; that’s rather fast for the subcompact section.

Equipped with the manual transmission, the Fit returns an EPA-estimated 32 mpg combined (29 city/37 freeway). CVT-equipped models provide 35 mpg incorporated (32 city/38 freeway), except for the entry-level LX. At 36 mpg integrated (33 city/41 freeway), it yields the very best fuel economy of the lineup.

The EX begins at $17,435 for the manual and $18,235 for the CVT version. The EX-L comes just with the CVT and starts at $19,800. The Fit EX-L with navigation expenses $1,000 more.
