What's New For 2018?
The number of safety features and driver aids has been boosted for the model year. The smartphone app integration system has also been updated, making connecting with your Android or iPhone much easier than before. The steering and suspension have been more finely tuned, and the middle-of-the-line Sport trim is brand-new. A few styling elements have been tweaked, and the noise insulation has been largely improved.
The 2018 Honda Fit is only available as a subcompact hatchback and is the smallest car that Honda manufactures.
There are four different trim levels available on the Fit: the LX, the new Sport trim, the EX, and the line-topping EX-L. A 1.5-L 4-cylinder engine with front-wheel drive comes standard across the lineup. You can select between a CVT or manual transmission. The CVT pairing will garner you a moderate 128 hp and 113 lb-ft of torque. However, you can get slightly more power from the manual, which helps to generate 130 hp and 114 lb-ft of torque. Standard on the Fit is a 60/40 split-folding rear seat, otherwise known as the Magic Seat. This seat can easily be folded down and is highly configurable. Forward collision warning and mitigation, adaptive cruise control, and lane departure warning and lane keep assist are standard on the CVT models. If you upgrade to the EX-L, you get standard leather upholstery and a stand-alone navigation option.
The 2018 Honda Fit is not built to be a speed demon, but it feels quite adequate. In fact, it can get from 0 to 60 mph on the CVT in about 8.8 seconds, which is good for its class. Although the brake pedal has a slightly squishy feeling to it, the brakes are reliable and predictable. Stops can be easily made in light or heavy traffic flows with a great deal of fluidity. Steering has an impeccably natural yet light feel to it, and you can always guess at where the vehicle is heading. Even when zipping down the highway, the Fit manages to feel solid. If you opt for the manual transmission, you will likely notice that you won't get much uptake from the clutch pedal. However, that won't really impinge much on the car's drivability. Navigating along busy city roads and parking in tight spots is extremely easy due to the Fit's small size and standard rearview camera.
As is the case with any Honda vehicle, the 2018 Honda Fit has a competitive fuel economy. At its worst (which truly is not bad at all), the Fit gets a combined 31 mpg (with 29 mpg city and 36 mpg highway) on the models equipped with the 6-speed manual transmission. All of the CVT models get a combined 36 mpg (with 33 mpg city and 40 mpg highway).
The 2018 Honda Fit might not have the biggest amount of cargo space in its class, but it holds fast to Honda's emphasis on safety, comfort, and reliability. For being a subcompact hatchback, the Fit is surprisingly enjoyable to drive and is certainly worthy of taking out for a test drive.
How to Calculate The Dealer Cost of a Honda Fit
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Honda Fit invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of all the options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here)
Note: All Honda Fit MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
