2016 Honda Fit: Fit For AllSep 28th, 2015
THE 2016 HONDA FIT: HOW TO KEEP A WINNING COMBO
There’s no denying that Honda’s known for its strong small-car game. Their latest revamp of an already well-known and loved hatch, the Fit, is just further proof that their compact car game is still going strong. The 2016 Honda Fit is a car that does it all, and in a package that’s both attractive and definitely meant for city life.
The new 2016 Honda Fit features a new exterior with shaper lines and an overall modern, European look. Its new front fascia that’s angular and modern, a rare site on a compact vehicle. The back also features the same aggressive design that suits the small city car very well.
Available features such as 15” or 16” alloy wheels, fog lights, and a body-coloured roof spoiler keep the 2016 Honda Fit current ensuring your Fit can really show off your personality. Colours like Aegean Blue Metallic, Milano Red, and Mystic Yellow Pearl also help set the 2016 Honda Fit apart amongst the other drab and mundane coloured cars on the road today.
Along with its great new exterior look, the 2016 Honda Fit features a fabulous 1.5L 16-valve i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine that produces 130 horsepower and 114 lb-ft of torque. Yes, it’s the same engine as the previous generation, but Honda’s managed to squeeze more power this year. Bravo Honda, bravo.
Four times the fun with the 2016 Honda Fit
It doesn’t matter which of the four 2016 Honda Fit models you choose (DX, LX, EX, and EX-L Navi), as they each come standard with a 6-speed manual transmission. A CVT is available (as well as steering-wheel mounted paddle shifters on the top two trims). The 2016 Honda Fit also features the automaker’s Drive-by-Wire Throttle System for more control and better driving dynamics.
It seems to be a common trend in the auto industry (and we should all rejoice the fact), that lower price-point economy cars or compacts are starting to feature higher-end amenities. The 2016 Honda Fit is not exception with features such as Bluetooth Streaming Audio, HondaLink with navigation and voice recognition, HDMI input, Siri Eyes Free compatibility, and HD Radio, along with Honda LaneWatch blind spot display, proximity key entry system, and even a multi-angle rearview camera. Extras like those push the 2016 Honda Fit beyond its segment’s boundaries and price points in a great way.
Don’t worry, despite all the new bits and the new interior and exterior look, the Honda Fit’s Magic Seats are still featured, along with a sense of Honda driveability and fun behind the wheel. Don’t forget, this is a vehicle that starts in the $14,000 range. Shocking, right? Well it shouldn’t be. This is Honda, after all, and they’ve brought together the very best in the segment and put it in an attractive, modern-looking package that’s also highly affordable.
