2018 Honda Fit: even more impressive safety

Since its launch, the Honda Fit has always played the versatility card combined with a fuel economy rating that stands out. Indeed, the Fit is not only the most spacious vehicle in its segment, it is more spacious than many larger sedans and even some SUVs. And now, the 2018 Honda Fit adds a host of technologies that, again, are not usually offered on this type of vehicle.

Improved safety and connectivity in the 2018 Honda Fit

The new 2018 Honda Fit offers a range of driver assistance systems that include state-of-the-art technologies such as Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Collision Mitigation Brake Braking System™ (CMBS™) incorporating Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) and Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) with Lane Departure Warning (LDW).

These technologies are therefore able not only to warn you that an accident may occur, but they can also take control of the vehicle in order to avoid the accident in question. No other car in the Fit’s segment offer so much in terms of safety.

In addition to these driver assistance systems, the 2018 Honda Fit also offers advanced connectivity technologies that include the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto systems. These systems reproduce the screen of your mobile device on the center screen of the car, giving you unparalleled interaction between your phone and yourself, while improving safety.

A very economical engine for the 2018 Honda Fit

The 2018 Honda Fit is powered by a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine developing 130 horsepower and 118 lb.-ft. of torque. This engine can be paired with a manual transmission, or a continuously variable automatic transmission.

No matter the gearbox, you get a particularly fuel efficient car when you opt for the 2018 Honda Fit. With the CVT box, the average fuel consumption rating can be as low as 6.5 liters per 100 kilometers. Not bad for a small and nimble urban vehicle that is able to offer up to 1,500 liters of cargo space in the trunk!

Another highlight of the 2018 Fit range is the addition of a Sport version that includes 16-inch wheels, chrome accessories and an orange paint that does not go unnoticed.
