It seems like just yesterday that Honda announced the first generation Honda Fit, but that was 10 years ago and this versatile and fun is back for it's 10th year in America! In recent years we've seen this hatchback receive tons of recognition such as "Kelley Blue Book's 10 Best Back-to-School Cars of 2016" and "Best Hatchback for the Money by U.S. News & World Report. As we celebrate the return of our favorite subcompact hatchback, Honda East will talk about what we have to look forward to in the 2017 Honda Fit in Cincinnati.
Class-leading cargo space will continue on into the 2017 model year with 52.7 cubic feet with rear seats down and the ever-intelligent Magic Seat that optimized that amount of cargo space by folding the seat down. You'd hardly believe by looking at the outside that you get 95.7 cubic feet in passenger space with 39.6 inches of rear seat leg room, but it's true! The Honda Fit is a lot of things, but uncomfortable is not one of them.
A main reason people become enamored with the Honda Fit is undoubtedly the fuel-economy. You can expect to get 29 city/36 highway MPG* for manual transmission, 33 city/40 highway MPG* for the LX trim with CVT and 32 city/37 highway for the EX and EX-L trim with CVT. Its apparent going far won't be a problem, but you'll also get there fast with its 1.5L 4-cylinder engine that delivers a powerful 130 horsepower.
So far we know that the 2017 Honda Fit in Cincinnati will be comfortable, roomy, fue-efficient and fast, but we also should mention that it's cutting edge, too. A few things you will see in this upcoming Honda Fit are:
- Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control
- Electronic Brake Distribution
- Brake Assist
- Advanced Compatibility Engineering
- Honda LaneWatch (standard on EX and up)
- Bluetooth HandsFreeLink
- LED brake lights
- Push Start Button
- Automatic on/off headlights
- And more!
We don't have an exact date of arrival for the 2017 Honda Fit in Cincinnati, but as you can probably tell, it's going to be worth the wait. Honda East is excited to see what awards this new Fit will win this year, but until then, shop our 2016 award-winning Fit options!
