For 2018, the Honda Fit got a slight refresh that included brand-new front and rear fascias, brand-new grilles, and upgraded wheels. On top of the new look, it likewise acquired a new Sport cut that included a touch of sportiness to this small hatchback. For 2019, we anticipate no major changes to the Fit.
In regards to looks, we expect the 2019 Fit to be a carryover, as there are no visual changes of note in the works. We also anticipate the Fit’s interior to remain the same as well. If you’re counting the days till an entirely revamped Fit strikes showrooms, you’ll have to wait at least another model year, as we do not expect a redesign till 2020 at the earliest.
With the appearances remaining the exact same inside and out, we don’t anticipate to see any big changes to the Fit’s basic features. If this shows true, search for it to continue with 15-inch wheels, a rearview video camera, cooling, cruise control, a tilt-and-telescoping wheel, a 5-inch display screen, and a four-speaker audio system as its standard features.
Under its hood, we anticipate no changes, so anticipate the 2019 Fit to continue with its 1.5-liter four-cylinder that produces 128 to 130 horse power and 113 to 114 pound-feet of torque– the lower numbers are with the optional constantly variable transmission. As previously, we anticipate a six-speed manual to come standard.
In IIHS testing, the existing Honda Fit received “Good” ratings in all the crash tests it’s completed. Nevertheless, it is not an IIHS Top Safety Pick because the institute has actually not tested it in the needed small-overlap scenario. Even if it does receive a “Good” score in the remaining test, which is a hard accomplishment for a subcompact car, it still can not reach the Top Safety Pick+ top since of its “Poor” headlight rating. The highest ranking it can receive is just Top Safety Pick.
The 2019 Fit’s official release date is not readily available yet, however we expect to see it in the summer of 2018. Considering that there are no changes in store, we expect the 2019 Fit to remain close to the current model’s MSRP range of $17,880 to $21,410 (location fees consisted of). Secret rivals to the Fit include the Nissan Versa Note, the Chevrolet Sonic, and the Ford Fiesta.
