The third-generation Japanese subcompact model is now ready for its first overhaul since it was unwrapped back in 2014 – with the company looking to lend some “sporty” and “aggressive” credentials to the package.
Thoroughly upgraded for the 2018 model year, the Fit comes with the ubiquitous new front end after this facelift, some new special exterior amenities and new technologies inside. As part of the facelift there’s a new Sport trim in America – sitting in between the LX and EX, the Honda Fit Sport adds a slightly more aggressive aero package, which consists of a two-piece chrome and piano black grille, a front splitter with bright orange accents, a three-strake diffuser with the same lively accents and a chrome exhaust finisher. The 16 inch alloys feature their own exclusive black accenting.
The exterior hues get updated with Helios Yellow Pearl and Orange Fury, next to White Orchid Pearl, Lunar Silver Metallic, Modern Steel Metallic, Crystal Black Pearl, Milano Red, and Aegean Blue Metallic. Optional on the LX and Sport, and standard above, Honda has the new Sensing suite of safety systems with adaptive cruise control, collision mitigation braking, lane keep assist, land departure warning, and road departure mitigation.
