2018 Honda Fit
The 2018 Honda Fit is an all-around winner in the subcompact category. It has the feel of a much bigger car inside, with lots of tricks to maximize your cargo space. If you’re looking for a car that goes above and beyond, the 2018 Honda Fit will amaze you. This small, well-equipped hatchback is fun to drive, easy to park, and ticks pretty much every box you could hope for.
Unless you’re driving a big family around, the 2018 Honda Fit meets all of your needs. It’s small enough to zip around town and park with ease. There’s also enough flexible cargo space inside to fit all of your groceries, your bicycle, your pets, you name it. The seats come with multiple cleverly folded configurations so that you can maximize space for whatever you want. This little hatchback gets top marks across the board for its driving dynamics, comfort and convenience, design, and value.
The 2018 Honda Fit is also super stylish and fun. The quirky hatchback style is both practical and eye-catching, and the Fit comes in four eye-popping colors and four classic, sedate colors. You can make an entrance in bright Orange Fury or Helios Yellow, or bold Aegean Blue. If you prefer, the Fit also comes in a calming gradient of White Orchid, Lunar Silver, Modern Steel, and Crystal Black. The Fit is made up of stylish curves to increase aerodynamics and good looks alike. The interior is trimmed in soft, premium cloth for a comfortable driving experience. If you want a leather-trimmed experience, you can opt for the EX-L trim, with premium black leather interior.
The 2018 Honda Fit offers a versatile, reliable, comfortable, and fun vehicle for anyone who wants a car that’s up to any task. It’s perfect for your daily commute, your weekend project, or your summer road trip.
Every 2018 Honda Fit comes equipped with lots of modern features to keep you safe, comfortable, and entertained on the road. It lets you stay connected to your car and the world with navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink, a USB Audio interface in the front and center console, and much more. You also get Pandora compatibility, SMS text functions, and a trial subscription to SiriusXM Radio on the EX and EX-L trims, so you’ll never be far from your favorite music. The EX-L trim also offers an available upgrade to Honda’s satellite-linked navigation system, which has voice recognition, HD Digital Traffic updates, and HD radio.
In addition to entertainment, the 2018 Honda Fit has lots of features to make your drive easy. There’s standard cruise control on every Fit, as well as plenty of cupholders for those road trips. The center console is organized to give you lots of storage for small, important objects. There are also outlets to keep your devices charged. Every Fit has a 12-volt power outlet in addition to the USB port, both in the convenient center console.
Every Fit also has exterior features to enhance your drive and looks. There’s a body-colored rear roofline spoiler, and the Sport trim also gets front and side spoilers with orange accents. The EX and EX-L trims also feature a one-touch power moonroof, so you can get a great view or a bit of fresh air as you cruise along.
The 2018 Honda Fit has front-wheel drive, powered by a 1.5L 4-cylinder engine. It’s paired with either a 6-speed manual or Honda’s smooth CVT transmission. The CVT transmission gets an amazingly efficient performance from the engine, offering an EPA-rated 33** combined MPG. If you want a sportier experience, you can choose the manual transmission, or add paddle shifters to the CVT transmission. Either way, you’ll get 128 horsepower from the 1.5L engine.
The 2018 Honda Fit has an updated chassis, made for firmer structure and more agile handling, while still providing a quiet, smooth ride. The Fit is made to provide a fun, nimble drive, especially in the Sport trim. It gives you precise, responsive steering. Through the curves, it handles with competent suppleness, and it stays composed. The calm way it tackles difficult curves and quick turns makes it a genuinely fun driving experience, with all the excitement of a sporty ride and the assurance and confidence of a sedan.
It’s also very pleasantly quiet inside the Fit. Despite its sportiness, none of its enthusiasm transfers annoying noise levels into the cabin. For the 2018 model, Honda added thicker acoustic materials, including an acoustically insulating windshield to cut down on wind noise. The new upgrades to this car mean that it’s quieter and more comfortable, yet also just as light and more fun to handle than previous models.
The interior of the 2018 Honda Fit is astonishingly spacious. It has generous space for passengers or cargo, so you don’t have to worry about leaving anyone behind. The secret behind all this space is Honda’s innovative techniques for versatile space. The rear seats feature 60/40 split folding, just as you’d expect, but they do so much more. Honda calls this the Magic Seat, because it seems to magically create space wherever you need it. It makes it easy to haul passengers in the surprisingly generous rear seats, or fold up the seats for more cargo space. The versatile folding configurations mean that you can adjust the Fit’s interior to hold exactly what your situation calls for, whether that’s three people and all your camping gear, or just you and your new home renovation supplies.
The back seats fold up into four modes, called Utility, Long, Tall, and Refresh. Utility mode lets you fold the full backseat flat for 52 cubic feet of cargo space: plenty for a bike or some furniture. Long mode lets you fold down the passenger-side seats in both the front and rear, so you can fit a longer piece of equipment inside, and still have seats for three passengers. You can also remove the headrests and fold up the backseats for Tall mode, which gives you four feet of vertical space for tall items. Or, if you’re ready for a nap or want to spread out, fold the front seat back and recline the rear seat for Refresh mode! The seats are wrapped in soft, premium cloth, or in smooth black leather on the EX-L trim.
Honda provides lots of safety technology for the 2018 Honda Fit. Every model gets features like brake assist, ABS, vehicle stability assist with traction control, and a rearview camera. There’s also lots of standard airbags, seat belt reminders, and easy-to-access LATCH points in the rear for child seats. With the CVT transmission and Honda Sensing, you also get Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning, Collision Mitigation Braking System, and Road Departure Mitigation System. Honda Sensing is available on the LX and Sport models, and comes standard on EX and EX-L.
The 2018 Honda Fit gets high safety scores across the board. The IIHS has rated it “Good” for every category except one, which it hasn’t tested yet. It also gets top marks from the NHTSA***, with five stars*** for its frontal and side crash protection, and four stars*** for rollover crash protection. Honda’s safety systems work to not only prevent an accident, but also to mitigate the damage if there is one. Lots of the Fit’s emergency automatic braking systems will engage in order to slow your speed and lessen the impact you might experience.
The 2018 Honda Fit is available in four different trims, depending on what you need. The LX trim comes with lots of standard technology and comforts. It has the Honda Magic Seat configuration to let you maximize your cargo space. It comes standard with the 6-speed manual transmission, but you can get the CVT transmission for just $800 if you want to. The LX is a great trim for anyone who needs their car to do all the normal car things, without needing extra bells and whistles. The EX trim comes with those extra goodies, like standard Honda Sensing driver’s aids, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and more high-tech luxuries. The EX-L trim comes with a leather-trimmed interior for a luxurious, sophisticated feel, complete with things like standard heated front seats.
If you’re after a sportier model, the Sport trim is a little different. You get underbody spoilers at the rear, sides, and front, and some fun orange trim. The Sport model also has unique 16-inch black alloy wheels. It starts out with the manual gearbox as well, but if you want the more efficient CVT, you can option on the paddle shifters for a manual experience. It also gets an interior trimmed in Black Sport Cloth, to complete the feeling of a performance-oriented cockpit.
