For 2018, the Honda Fit received a small refresh that consisted of new front and rear fascias, new grilles, and upgraded wheels. On top of the new look, it likewise gained a new Sport cut that added a touch of sportiness to this small hatchback. For 2019, we expect no significant changes to the Fit.
2019 Honda Fit Design
In terms of looks, we anticipate the 2019 Fit to be a carryover, as there are no visual changes of note in the works. We also expect the Fit’s interior to stay the same as well. If you’re counting the days up until an entirely upgraded Fit hits display rooms, you’ll have to wait a minimum of another model year, as we do not expect a redesign until 2020 at the earliest.
With the appearances remaining the exact same inside and out, we don’t expect to see any huge changes to the Fit’s standard features. If this proves true, try to find it to continue with 15-inch wheels, a rearview cam, a/c, cruise control, a tilt-and-telescoping wheel, a 5-inch display screen, and a four-speaker audio system as its basic features.
2019 Honda Fit Engine
Under its hood, we anticipate no changes, so expect the 2019 Fit to continue with its 1.5-liter four-cylinder that produces 128 to 130 horse power and 113 to 114 pound-feet of torque– the lower numbers are with the optional continuously variable transmission. As in the past, we expect a six-speed handbook to come requirement.
In IIHS testing, the existing Honda Fit got “Good” ratings in all the crash checks it’s finished. However, it is not an IIHS Top Safety Pick due to the fact that the institute has not checked it in the required small-overlap circumstance. Even if it does receive a “Good” score in the remaining test, which is a difficult achievement for a subcompact car, it still can not arrive Safety Pick+ summit because of its “Poor” headlight rating. The greatest rating it can get is simply Top Safety Pick.
2019 Honda Fit Pricing & Release Date
The 2019 Fit’s official release date is not available yet, however we expect to see it in the summer season of 2018. Considering that there are no changes in store, we anticipate the 2019 Fit to remain near to the present model’s MSRP series of $17,880 to $21,410 (location fees included). Secret rivals to the Fit include the Nissan Versa Note, the Chevrolet Sonic, and the Ford Fiesta.
