2015 Honda Fit Makes its First Appearance at North American International Auto Show


Honda introduced the 2015 Fit to the crowd at the North American international auto show this year.

The new Fit is slightly shorter and wider compared to the current model and has a longer wheel base.

2015 Honda Fit has allocated more space for passengers (more passenger volume and rear legroom) from the interior. Fit is equipped with Honda-exclusive Magic Seat which provide multiple configurable seating positions. 2015 Fit also comes with foldable second row seats. When folded they provide an impressive 52.7 cubic feet of cargo space and the 60 inch overhaul height makes the loading/unloading of cargo very easy.

Noteworthy standard features that come with the 2015 Honda Fit includes Bluetooth connectivity, a multi-angle rear-view camera and Expanded View Driver’s Mirror.

If you’re looking for more, there are available premium features like smart entry with push-button start, heated side mirrors, a moon-roof, heated front seats, Honda’s exclusive LaneWatch display and a 7-inch Display Audio1 touchscreen interface with HondaLink smartphone connectivity.

Under the hood of the 2015 Fit is a direct-injected 1.5-liter DOHC i-VTEC engine which generates 130 horsepower at 6500rpm and 114 lb-ft of torque at 4600 rpm. The Fit offers its customers to choose between 6-speed manual transmission and Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) with available paddle shifters. Expected fuel economy ratings are 33 city/41 highway/36 combined4 (CVT-equipped models).

2015 Honda Fit has a more rigid chassis due to extensive use of ultra-high strength steel than in any other previous model so when it comes to safety, the 2015 Fit clearly stands out from the rest. It’s equipped with newly a designed suspension system to deliver better handling, ride comfort and NVH. The fit is equipped with the Honda ACE body structure.

The all-new 2015 Fit is set to go on sale in the U.S. this spring.
