Honda adds driver assistive technology to the Fit hatchback
Honda Motor announced the addition of a Sport trim and the availability of Honda Sensing on its popular Fit hatchback. The unit has an updated look at the front and rear and two new colors were added. Furthermore, the availability of Honda Sensing® brings the suite of advanced safety and driver assistive technologies to the subcompact Fit.
The Honda Sensing® feature includes Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Collision Mitigation Brake Braking System (CMBS), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) incorporating Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) incorporating Road Departure Warning (RDW).
This makes Fit the most affordable car in America with such a robust suite of available advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies and the only vehicle within its segment to do so.
“With sporty new styling and additional feature content, the 2018 Honda Fit ups the ante with new styling and sophistication not typically found in the subcompact segment,” said Jeff Conrad, senior vice president of the American Honda Automobile Division.
The 2018 Honda Fit also features new headlights and a sportier styling, starting with a horizontally layered, two-piece chrome and piano black grille with a larger, more prominent “H” mark.
The front bumper sports top chrome accents and features a full-width splitter, along with more angular fog lights pods. At the rear, the Fit features a redesigned bumper with a full-width character line in piano black and a splitter-shaped lower section. A black finish on the 16-inch alloy wheels further adds to the sporty look.
The Honda Fit for the North American market is built in Celaya, Guanajuato.
