This thing has pep. The Fit comes with a 1.5-litre, 16-valve, Direct Injection DOHC i-VTEC® 4-cylinder Earth Dreams™ engine. Not only does it pack more horsepower, it’s got the brains of Earth Dreams™ technology behind it. It’s designed to improve efficiency without sacrificing performance.
The available continuously variable transmission (CVT) constantly adjusts to conditions to help provide the most efficient drive ratio possible. Plus, the available steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters help add to the fun with the flick of your wrist.
If stick is your thing, the Fit can accommodate. A 6-speed manual transmission is available for enthusiasts. And, it’s precisely as much fun as you think it would be.
The Fit is incredibly performance savvy with its Electric Power-Assisted Rack-and-Pinion Steering (EPS) and its precision-tuned independent MacPherson strut front and torsion-beam rear suspension. The result is nimble sport handling as well as improved ride comfort, responsiveness and stability.
Get more out of every litre with the available ECON mode button, found on trims with the available continuously variable transmission (CVT). When you press it, the engine and other non-essential functions are adjusted to help reduce fuel consumption, so you can spend more time on the road.
It’s easy to drive efficiently when the Eco Assist system comes standard. The blue and green bars on either side of the speedometer let you keep your eye on how efficiently you’re driving, so all you have to do is stay on green if you want to get the most out of your tank.
Put some serious distance between gas stations. The Fit boasts impressive fuel economy ratings of 7.0/5.9/6.5 L/100 KM * (city/highway/combined), so there are fewer stops along the way.
