For 2018, the Honda Fit got a minor refresh that included brand-new front and rear fascias, new grilles, and updated wheels. On top of the makeover, it likewise acquired a new Sport cut that included a touch of sportiness to this small hatchback. For 2019, we expect no significant 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 likewise anticipate the Fit’s interior to remain the same as well. If you’re counting the days up until an entirely redesigned Fit hits display rooms, you’ll have to wait at least another model year, as we do not anticipate a redesign until 2020 at the earliest.
With the appearances staying the same within and out, we don’t expect to see any huge changes to the Fit’s basic features. If this proves real, try to find it to continue with 15-inch wheels, a rearview electronic camera, cooling, cruise control, a tilt-and-telescoping wheel, a 5-inch display screen, and a four-speaker audio system as its standard 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 horse power 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 handbook to come requirement.
In IIHS screening, the existing Honda Fit got “Good” rankings in all the crash evaluates it’s completed. Nevertheless, it is not an IIHS Top Safety Pick since the institute has not checked it in the needed small-overlap scenario. 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+ top because of its “Poor” headlight ranking. The highest rating it can receive is simply Top Safety Pick.
2019 Honda Fit Pricing & Release Date
The 2019 Fit’s official release date is not readily available yet, however we expect to see it in the summer season of 2018. Considering that there are no changes in shop, we anticipate the 2019 Fit to remain near the current model’s MSRP variety of $17,880 to $21,410 (location costs consisted of). Key competitors to the Fit consist of the Nissan Versa Note, the Chevrolet Sonic, and the Ford Fiesta.
