The Honda Fit has been insanely popular and very hard to find as of late. Now, Honda is upping the ante with the release of the refreshed 2018 model.
The biggest changes to the 2018 Fit are to its appearance, as its front and rear ends get some tweaks. Up front, notice the new horizontally layered, two-piece chrome and piano black grille with a more prominent Honda logo. Flanking the grille are sleeker and cleaner looking headlights that flow better with the front fascia. Rounding out the front end changes is a new bumper with top chrome accents, a new full-width spoiler, and more angular fog light pods.
The rear end’s changes aren’t as dramatic, but they are still easy to spot. It features a redesigned bumper with a full-width, piano black character line and a splitter-shaped lower section, and reworked taillights.
Also new in 2018 will be the Sport trim crammed between the LX and EX trims. This model will feature an even more aggressive design with unique aero form features on the front, sides and rear, and an orange-colored front splitter. Around back, the Sport trim gets a three-strake diffuser with an orange upper trim line, a chrome exhaust tip, and a Sport badge. Rounding out the Sport trim are 16-inch black-finish wheels.
Another big change in the new year is the addition of Honda Sensing. This system, which will be optional on LX and Sport trims, and standard on the EX, will include adaptive cruise control, collision mitigation braking, lane-keep assist, lane-departure warning, road-departure mitigation, and road-departure warning.
And the final changes in 2018 are two new colors: Helios Yellow Pearl and Orange Fury.
Honda hasn’t officially announced when the 2018 Fit will launch, nor has it mentioned pricing. Stay tuned for this information and more in the near future.
