Test drive this superb people- and cargo-hauling subcompact car to experience a commuter that puts the ‘fun’ back into functionality. Delivering you versatility in the cabin, a sporty and responsive drive, as well as upgraded safety features, the 2019 Fit is ready to help you take your drive to the next level. You’ll love the personality this car offers as well as the responsive handling and exceptional gas mileage. Take a look at what’s refreshed on the 2019 Honda Fit and then stop by today to test drive one of our in-stock models.

The accommodating and stylish 2019 Honda Fit arrived at dealerships nationwide on April 30 with a starting Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $16,190 (excluding $890 destination and handling), unchanged from the previous model year. The 2019 Fit continues to boast unparalleled versatility, premium feature content and a playful, city-friendly demeanor – particularly with its standard 6-speed manual gearbox. However, if you prefer to let the car do the work, you can upgrade to an automatic Continuously Variable Transmission that seamlessly shifts to keep you in the perfect gear.

Under the hood is a 1.5-liter direct-injected four-cylinder i-VTEC™ engine that produces a peak output of up to 130 horsepower and 114 lb-ft of torque. The Honda Fit continues to blend fun-to-drive performance with outstanding fuel efficiency, comfort, and safety in a high-quality, affordable package. With responsive handling and a peppy engine, you can quickly navigate tight spaces like parking lots or open up the engine on the highway with equal ease. Plus, the compact feel of this car provides you with an agile and nimble feeling when you’re behind the wheel.

The engineering team devised some clever packaging; the fuel tank is mounted underneath the front-row seats, which gives the 2019 Fit cavernous cargo capacity, boasting a class-leading 52.7 cubic-feet of space with the rear seats folded down. And with the split in the rear seats, you can maintain space for passengers while accommodating bulky items like your stand-up-paddle board or DIY materials for your home.

For the latest in-vehicle connectivity experience, Sport models and up include Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ integration through a high-resolution, seven-inch touchscreen. The available Honda Sensing® suite of technologies includes Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) with Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and pedestrian detection, Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) with Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and new for the 2019 model, Auto High-Beams that switch on an off depending on your environment.
