2019 Honda Fit Overview

The Honda Fit has always been a great all-rounder. With lots of room for passengers and gear, good fuel economy, and a reasonably fun and zippy driving experience, the Fit is good at pretty much everything. Last year’s model got a mid-cycle refresh, so the Honda Fit goes into 2019 without many changes; a new Platinum Pearl White paint color is available as well as automatic high beams for models equipped with the Honda Sensing system.

Under that short, sharply sloped hood is a small but eager 1.5-liter four cylinder that makes 130 horsepower and 114 pound-feet of torque. The Fit comes standard with a 6-speed manual, with a continuously-variable transmission (CVT) available as an option. Manuals equipped with a 6-speed will manage 29 mpg city, 36 highway, 31 combined, while the CVT will do 33 mpg city, 40 mpg highway, and 36 mpg combined.

In typical Honda fashion, the Fit makes the most out of a limited amount of space. With a shape similar to a minivan – just on a smaller scale – a huge amount of the car’s footprint is dedicated to interior space. Despite being a relatively small car, there is lots of room for tall passengers in both the front and the back, and storage space is impressive. All 2018 Honda Fits get a reversing camera, a USB port, a liftgate spoiler, and a 5.0-inch touchscreen. The Fit Sport, meanwhile, comes with some cosmetic tweaks including several underbody spoilers as well as a 7.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Upper trims get paddle shifters for the CVT that include a Sport driving mode. The range-topping EX-L model gets leather-trimmed upholstery as well as heated front seats. A navigation system is optional.

For 2018, hill-start assist and a reversing camera were made standard equipment, and most models come with the Honda Sensing system that includes automatic high beam headlights, adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warnings, active lane control, and forward-collision warnings with automatic emergency braking.
