For 2018, the Honda Fit got a minor refresh that included brand-new front and rear fascias, brand-new grilles, and updated wheels. On top of the make over, it also acquired a brand-new Sport cut that included a touch of sportiness to this tiny hatchback. For 2019, we anticipate no significant changes to the Fit.
2019 Honda Fit Design
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 stay the same as well. If you’re counting the days until a totally redesigned Fit hits showrooms, you’ll need to wait at least another model year, as we do not expect a redesign until 2020 at the earliest.
With the looks staying the very same inside and out, we don’t expect to see any huge changes to the Fit’s basic features. If this proves true, search for it to continue with 15-inch wheels, a rearview video camera, air conditioning, cruise control, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, a 5-inch display screen, and a four-speaker audio system as its standard features.
2019 Honda Fit Engine
Under its hood, we expect no changes, so expect the 2019 Fit to continue with its 1.5-liter four-cylinder that produces 128 to 130 horsepower and 113 to 114 pound-feet of torque– the lower numbers are with the optional continuously variable transmission. As before, we anticipate a six-speed manual to come requirement.
In IIHS screening, the existing Honda Fit got “Good” scores in all the crash tests it’s completed. However, it is not an IIHS Top Safety Pick because the institute has actually not checked it in the required small-overlap circumstance. Even if it does get a “Good” ranking in the remaining test, which is a tough achievement for a subcompact car, it still can not arrive Safety Pick+ top because of its “Poor” headlight ranking. The greatest rating it can receive is just Top Safety Pick.
2019 Honda Fit Pricing & Release Date
The 2019 Fit’s official release date is not available yet, however we anticipate to see it in the summer season of 2018. Since there are no changes in store, we expect the 2019 Fit to stay near the present model’s MSRP range of $17,880 to $21,410 (location costs consisted of). Secret competitors to the Fit consist of the Nissan Versa Note, the Chevrolet Sonic, and the Ford Fiesta.
