Honda seems to have somehow struck a perfect balance between diminutive size and major attitude with the 2018 Fit, which is available in eight mind-blowing colors with names like “Lunar Silver” and “Orange Fury.” From the sassy front-end bumper to its sporty rear spoiler, the Fit exudes personality in a way that’s escaped most subcompacts in the past. Redesigned and tweaked for 2018, the newest Honda Fit has hit the proverbial shelves at our Honda dealerships near Mesa, and it’s about to make waves in the vast sea of subcompacts that are currently on the road.
Choose From 4 Different Trim Levels
The base 2018 Fit LX starts out with some great features like a multi-angle rearview camera, 6-speed manual transmission, 2nd-row Magic Seat (which slides forward, back and side-to-side), and Honda Sensing, Honda’s trademark suite of active safety features. Other available trims include the Sport, the EX and the EX-L with standard and available amenities like paddle shifters, a one-touch power moonroof, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, heated front seats, Honda LaneWatch, and a navigation system, among others.
Engineers had one main idea in mind when designing the Fit’s interior — making the most of every inch of available space. Did they succeed? You be the judge by taking it for a spin at your nearest Phoenix Honda dealership.
The detailed controls — audio, phone, voice command and cruise control functions — are mounted on the steering wheel to give you distraction-free access to your favorite features. USB and 12-volt outlets are located right on the center console, so you can keep your essentials close at hand, too. Leather-trimmed seating, steering wheels, and shift knobs are standard on some models and available on others, so you can even enjoy a touch of luxury in this feisty little subcompact.
A six-speed manual transmission is a joy for driving enthusiasts, and race car-inspired paddle shifters on the steering wheel give you a fun alternative to automatic shifting. Add in comfortable seating for up to 5, and you’ve got a subcompact interior that packs quite a functional punch! And as an added pleasure, the engineers at Honda have even provided glowing blue LED lights in the footwells to softly light the floor at night, making it easier to find dropped chapstick tubes or earbuds.
Here’s the real kicker: you can even fold down the back seats to transport large items, like a bicycle or a small kayak.
A Tweak Here, a Tweak There
The Fit was already an amazing subcompact with no “glaring flaws,” so Honda’s engineers were free to focus on making little improvements rather than large-scale changes. They went to work and upgraded the Fit’s suspension, steering, chassis bracing, and sound-deadening to make driving Honda’s least expensive car a more refined experience. They made little yet significant changes too, like replacing the sliding volume control with a more “user-friendly” knob – an update responding directly to Fit owners’ past feedback.
