Since its introduction to the US in 2007, the subcompact has gained respect for its versatility, fuel efficiency and practicality. What reviewers rave most about is how much space the seemingly small Honda Fit has to offer. While the Honda Fit has had a successful run, it still had a couple complaints, including its lack of refinement and at times an engine that felt underpowered. Honda has addressed these concerns for the 2015 model, and the result is the best Honda Fit yet. If you were a fan of the Honda Fit before, get ready to fall head over heels in love again. Here are 5 things that will make you go googly-eyed over the 2015 Fit:
1) Quiet Ride. Thanks to Honda’s determination to improve the noise, vibration and harshness of previous Fit models, the 2015 is now the quietest sub-compact on the market today. In order to accomplish this, Honda added soundproofing material throughout the body, including the floors, ceiling, doors, fenders, instrument panel and center console.
2) Power Machine: The power in the new Honda Fit has improved by 11% compared to previous models, with a 1.5 liter 4-cylinder engine now producing 130 horsepower. Thanks to the newly improved quiet cabin, you can be going over 70 mph and not even realize it!
3) Interior Evolution: With their center-mounted fuel tank, the Fit is able to achieve best-in-class space with class-leading cargo capacity. Compared to its closest competitors like the Nissan Versa and Ford Fiesta, the Fit has more front shoulder room, rear legroom and passenger volume.
4) New Standard Features: Honda didn’t want anyone to just settle for the Fit, they built it in such a way that it would be competitive to the next class up, which would be the Honda Civic. Features that will be sure to blow you away are new LED brake lights, auto on-off headlights, smart entry push button start, moon roof, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink and center storage console with armrest. Probably one of the most exciting new features is the all new heated leather seats available for the first time in the Fit.
5) Fuel Economy: Both the manual and the CVT have vastly improved compared to older models. If you’re number one priority is fuel savings, we recommend going with the CVT as you get 33/41 city and highway mpg. For a more enjoyable and fun ride go with the manual, which is still impressive at 29/37 city highway mpg.
And there you have it. 5 reasons that will make it hard for you to say no to the new love of your life, the 2015 Honda Fit.
