The All-New 2015 Honda Fit

Published on November 28 2014

''The 2015 Honda Fit is bolder and sportier than its predecessor, especially when taking into account its aggressive-looking headlights, available fog lights and 16-inch alloy wheels. ''

The third generation of Honda’s 5-door subcompact hatchback has been redesigned, providing buyers with a more spacious cabin, good fuel economy ratings, excellent visibility, and of course, exceptional small car versatility. Taking all these things into account, including its TOP SAFETY PICK rating from the IIHS, the 2015 Honda Fit is a worthy consideration. 

The 2015 Honda Fit is bolder and sportier than its predecessor, especially when taking into account its aggressive-looking headlights, available fog lights and 16-inch alloy wheels. The new generation model combines urban styling with European design elements, making for one good-looking hatchback. 

Under the hood, owners will find a 1.5-litre, direct-injection, 4-cylinder engine equipped on all models, which include the base DX, mid-level LX and EX, and top EX-L Navi trims. The engine is more powerful than the previous version equipped in the 2014 model, and generates 130 horsepower and 114 pound-feet of torque (that’s an additional 13 hp and 8 lb-ft). When driving the new 2015 Honda Fit at higher speeds, owners may notice that it is quieter than the previous model. It is also sharper and more stable when turning a corner. 

The engine is mated to a 6-speed manual transmission that is standard across the board. Buyers can also opt for a Continuously Variable Transmission, available on the LX, EX and EX-L Navi models, which allows owners to quickly downshift when accelerating to past another vehicle for example. Steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters are also available for those that select the CVT with either the EX trim or the top model. 

If fuel economy is a concern, the 2015 Fit when equipped with the manual transmission, has a rating of 8.1/6.4 litres per 100 kilometres (city/highway). With the CVT, the combined rating is 6.4 L/100km for the LX model, and 6.8 for the EX and EX-L Navi. Consumers can also use the Eco Assist system offered on all trims, and the ECON mode button, available when opting for the CVT transmission (offered on all but the base DX) to further improve fuel economy. 

As for interior space and versatility, owners of the new 2015 Fit model will benefit from 138 litres of additional passenger volume (with the DX and LX), 109 mm of increased rear legroom, and 1,492 litres of cargo space when the second-row seats are folded. The new Fit also continues to provide owners with its clever second-row Magic Seat that offers four unique configuration modes, such as: Tall, Utility, People and Long mode – all of which allow the driver to fold, flip-up, or recline the seats. Buyers can also recline the front seat, and adjust the headrest. 

In terms of features, a multi-angle rearview camera, Bluetooth connectivity, Honda’s LaneWatch display, smart entry with push-button start, and heated front seats and side mirrors are available depending on the model. Elements like a moonroof and leather seating are also offered, among many other features. 

Priced from $14,495 MSRP, the 2015 Honda Fit is bolder due to its new styling, and slightly more spacious than the 2014 version. Consumers looking for a small car with excellent versatility will surely enjoy the all-new Fit, and good fuel economy ratings, great visibility, and a satisfactory list of available features should also help to seal the deal.
