The 2017 Honda Fit is a sleek, substantial ride that gives drivers ample passenger and cargo space as well as a high-tech, connected and fun ride.
The 2017 Honda Fit is available in three trims: LX, EX and EX-L.
Sporty and spacious
The 2017 Honda Fit casts an impressive shadow for what appears to be a diminutive vehicle. Its exterior design features a seamless integration of headlights, grille and badging in the front. In the back, LED brake lights, chrome trim and a rear spoiler create a striking silhouette.
Although its outer appearance is surprisingly deceptive, this compact car delivers over 93 cubic feet of passenger space and up to 52 cubic feet of cargo room.
Smart and lux
The 2017 Honda Fit sports a clever and sophisticated interior designed for a thrilling ride. Drivers can easily manage cruise control functions, audio, phone and voice apps with smart steering wheel-mounted controls. Drivers are able to connect effortlessly to their mobile device while on the road due to the Fit’s thoughtfully-styled center console that features USB1 and 12-volt power outlets.
The Fit comfortably fits up to five people, and the 60/40 Split 2nd-Row Magic Seat® gives drivers four adjustable configurations—Utility, Long, Tall and Refresh—to accommodate their passengers or cargo.
For optimal comfort, the EX-L features standard heated front seats and lush details like leather trim on the shift knob, seats and steering wheel.
High-tech and connected
The 2017 Honda Fit is full of high-tech features, including Honda LaneWatchTM,2 Push Button Start and Smart Entry that all come standard on the EX and EX-L, while the Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation SystemTM 3 with HD Traffic and voice recognition is available on the EX-L.
Fit drivers will love the standard expansive Bluetooth®4 Streaming Audio capability while drivers of the EX and EX-L will appreciate the quality sound of the standard 180-Watt Audio System with six speakers.
Standard on the EX and EX-L, the seven-inch Display Audio touch-screen keeps the driver and front passengers inches away from their preferred content settings, while HondaLink®5 allows them to sync their compatible smart device.
Energetic and savvy
The 2017 Honda Fit is a joy to drive due to its 130-horsepower four-cylinder engine, and with its six-speed manual transmission, drivers can push their experience to a new level.
The Fit operates efficiently with the green Eco-AssistTM, and the Multi-Information Display (MID) keeps drivers informed with real-time mpg, alerts and odometer readings.
Drivers of the LX with CVT, EX with CVT and EX-L will enjoy saving gas with the standard ECON button that enhances the cruise control, air conditioning, transmission and engine. Drivers of the EX-L will delight in the race-inspired paddle shifters on the steering wheel that rev up the driving experience; the paddle shifters are available on the EX with CVT.
Safe and sound
The 2017 Honda Fit is engineered to better safeguard occupants in the event of an accident with its remarkable ACETM Body Structure, while Vehicle Stability AssistTM (VSA®) manipulates engine and brake forces to compensate for drivers’ over- or under-steering.
The 2017 Fit also features a standard Multi-Angle Rearview Camera that gives drivers three perspectives of their surroundings: wide, top-down and normal. The automatic switch-on of its Daytime Running Lights makes the Honda Fit easy to see.
The 2017 Honda Fit gives drivers the power and space they need and the technology, amenities and safety features they covet.
