2014 Detroit Motor Show LIVE: 2015 U.S.-spec Honda Fit

The U.S. version of the brand new 2015 Honda Fit has been officially presented to the public during the 2014 North American International Auto Show.

Honda has brought the U.S.-spec variant of the 2015 Fit at the 2014 Detroit Motor Show which will start its production next month in Celaya, Mexico, a new plant which will have an annual capacity of 200,000 vehicles. The same facility will also assemble the Vezel. As far as the model in question goes, this has lost 26 kg (57 lbs) compared to its predecessor and has improved its handling. The 2015 Fit is also getting an updated suspension geometry and new rear dampers too.

The model has a more spacious cabin and the legroom has increased by 4.8 inches, while the passenger volume is now up by 4.9 cubic feet, thanks to the longer wheelbase and the rearranged cabin layout. The 2015 Honda Fit is now .03 inches wider than the model it’s replacing and with the second row of seats folded, the cargo capacity stands at 52.7 cubic feet. The engine found under its hood is a 1.5 liter four-cylinder DOHC i-VTEC gasoline burner, with 130 HP (97 kW) at 6,500 rpm and 154 Nm (114 lb-ft) of torque, available at 4,600 rpm, 13 HP (10 kW) and 11 Nm (8 lb-ft) more than before. The unit is mated to a 6-speed manual or a CVT, sending power to the RWD. The estimated EPA is 33 / 41/ 36 mpg.
