For 2018, the Honda Fit got a small refresh that included new front and rear fascias, new grilles, and updated wheels. On top of the new look, it also acquired a new Sport trim that added a touch of sportiness to this tiny hatchback. For 2019, we expect no major changes to the Fit.
2019 Honda Fit Design
In terms of appearances, we expect the 2019 Fit to be a carryover, as there are no visual changes of note in the works. We also anticipate the Fit’s interior to remain the same as well. If you’re counting the days until a totally revamped Fit strikes showrooms, you’ll need to wait a minimum of another model year, as we don’t anticipate a redesign until 2020 at the earliest.
With the looks remaining the very same inside and out, we do not expect to see any huge changes to the Fit’s basic features. If this shows true, try to find it to continue with 15-inch wheels, a rearview electronic camera, a/c, cruise control, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, a 5-inch display screen, and a four-speaker audio system as its standard features.
2019 Honda Fit Engine
Under its hood, we expect 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 previously, we expect a six-speed manual to come requirement.
In IIHS screening, the current Honda Fit received “Good” ratings in all the crash checks it’s finished. Nevertheless, it is not an IIHS Top Safety Pick because the institute has actually not checked it in the required small-overlap scenario. Even if it does receive a “Good” rating in the remaining test, which is a tough achievement for a subcompact car, it still can not reach the Top Safety Pick+ top since of its “Poor” headlight ranking. The highest score it can receive is just 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 summertime of 2018. Considering that there are no changes in shop, we anticipate the 2019 Fit to stay close to the present model’s MSRP range of $17,880 to $21,410 (location costs included). Secret rivals to the Fit include the Nissan Versa Note, the Chevrolet Sonic, and the Ford Fiesta.
