For 2018, the Honda Fit received a minor refresh that consisted of new front and rear fascias, new grilles, and upgraded wheels. On top of the new look, it also gained a new Sport cut that added a touch of sportiness to this small hatchback. For 2019, we expect no major 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 like well. If you’re counting the days up until an entirely redesigned Fit hits showrooms, you’ll need to wait a minimum of another model year, as we do not anticipate a redesign till 2020 at the earliest.
With the appearances staying the very same within and out, we don’t expect to see any big changes to the Fit’s standard features. If this shows real, search for it to continue with 15-inch wheels, a rearview cam, cooling, 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 horsepower and 113 to 114 pound-feet of torque– the lower numbers are with the optional constantly variable transmission. As before, we expect a six-speed manual to come standard.
In IIHS testing, the current Honda Fit received “Good” ratings in all the crash checks it’s completed. However, it is not an IIHS Top Safety Pick since the institute has actually not checked it in the required small-overlap circumstance. Even if it does receive a “Good” ranking in the staying test, which is a hard accomplishment for a subcompact car, it still can not reach the Top Safety Pick+ summit because of its “Poor” headlight score. The highest rating it can receive is just Top Safety Pick.
2019 Honda Fit Pricing & Release Date
The 2019 Fit’s official release date is not readily available yet, however we anticipate to see it in the summer season of 2018. Given that there are no changes in store, we expect the 2019 Fit to remain near to the existing model’s MSRP variety of $17,880 to $21,410 (location fees included). Key rivals to the Fit include the Nissan Versa Note, the Chevrolet Sonic, and the Ford Fiesta.
