2018 Honda Fit vs 2017 Honda Fit

Serving Highland, Schererville, and Hammond, IN

The Honda Fit arrived in 2007 – at a time when people in the United States became more conscious of rising gas prices. A decade later, the Fit reigns supreme among subcompact: not just because Honda beat most other automakers to the punch, but also because it has fine-tuned the main attributes of this type of vehicle. Roomy, practical, and efficient, the Fit – still in its third generation of production – received a major facelift for the 2018 model year. Ultimately, though, both the 2018 Honda Fit and its immediate predecessor (i.e., 2017 Honda Fit) provide the very best of what the subcompact class has to offer.

The Honda Fit arrived in 2007 – at a time when people in the United States became more conscious of rising gas prices.

Ultimately, though, both the 2018 Honda Fit and its immediate predecessor (i.e., 2017 Honda Fit) provide the very best of what the subcompact class has to offer.

Appearance

The Honda Fit adopts the five-door hatchback body style, thus offering more interior room and making the cabin – especially the cargo area – more accessible. For 2018, however, Honda introduces a trim named the Sport. True to its name, the Fit Sport – which is placed between the base-level LX and upper-level EX and EX-L – has front and side underbody spoilers, a rear diffuser with orange accents, and a chrome exhaust finisher. Standard features on the 2017/2018 Fit include a rear roofline spoiler, power side mirrors, and multi-reflection halogen headlights. Upgrading from the LX adds front fog lights, the EX and EX-L get additional smart entry ability and a one-touch power moonroof with tilt feature, and the EX-L’s side mirrors have turn-signal indicators and heating ability.

Safety

For restraint and cushioning in the event of a collision, the 2017/2018 Honda Fit has dual front impact airbags, dual front seat-mounted side impact airbags, and dual roof-mounted side curtain airbags. Also standard are electronic vehicle stability control for keeping you on the right driving path, traction control to combat skidding, an anti-lock braking system to prevent wheel lockup during an abrupt stop, electronic brake-force distribution for proper allocation of stopping force to the wheels, brake assist for additional stopping power when needed, hill start assist for safe driving up a steep slope from a parked position, and a multi-angle rearview camera for flashing a video image to see what’s behind and around you. Honda adds blind spot monitoring, forward collision warning, road departure mitigation, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, collision mitigation braking, and adaptive cruise control on the EX and EX-L trims of the 2018 Fit.
