Honda unveiled the all-new 2015 Fit subcompact hatch at the North American International Auto Show. Arriving this spring, the new Fit is redesigned from the ground up offering more interior space in a stylish, fun to drive package with good fuel efficiency and state-of-the-art safety combined with vehicle connectivity, or, in Honda’s words, a small car with big aspirations.
The 2015 Fit is slightly shorter and wider than the current model and will feature a longer wheelbase. It will boast a more aggressive front fascia with new grille and headlight design. A unique center-mounted fuel tank layout allows for increased cabin space along with better rear seat leg room.
A new Earth Dreams Technology direct-injected 1.5-liter DOHC i-VTEC four-cylinder engine will make its debut in Fit and will be rated at 130hp and 114 lb. ft. of torque while delivering 33 mpg city and 41 mpg highway when mated to the CVT gearbox, which, by the way, comes with available paddle shifters.
The revised chassis offers improved handling, ride comfort and NVH thanks to a more rigid body, new rear dampers and revised suspension geometry.
Pricing information has not been released but should be available closer to release date.
