In 2018, the Honda Fit went through a mild refresh that updated its front end and brought in a new Sport trim. When the 2019 model hits dealerships, most everything will remain the same, save for a few mild updates and new prices.
On the outside, the 2019 Honda Fit will be instantly recognizable, as it will lack any visual updates to set it apart from the 2018 model. The same will go for the interior, as it’ll carry on with the same look and feel, and the Honda Magic Seats that open up to about 53 cubes of cargo room when folded.
What will change in 2019 will be the addition of the new Platinum Pearl White exterior color in place of the current White Orchid Pearl hue. Honda also will make automatic high beams a part of the 2019 model’s optional Honda Sensing package. While the latter update will help make the 2019 Fit even safer, it’s doubtful this will rectify the “Poor” rating the IIHS gave it in the headlight test, which is holding it back from receiving Top Safety Pick status.
The 2019 Fit’s pricing will start from $17,080 ($890 destination fee included) for the LX trim with the six-speed manual transmission and will top off at $22,410 (including $890 destination fee) for the EX-L W/ Navi trim with a continuously variable transmission. The 2019 Fit hits showrooms on April 30, 2018.
