2016 Honda Fit
This subcompact hatchback/wagon is very important model for Honda and it is definitely one of the key players in this segment on global market. It was originally released in 2001 and it recently came as third-generation model. It was presented on the 2014 North American International Auto Show and went on sale in June as a 2015 model year.

2016 Honda Fit specs
It is expected that 2016 Honda Fit will come without some important changes. The 2015 YM came as new-generation model and beside new look, it also got new platform. The total body of the car includes massive use of extra-light materials, so it is much lighter than its predecessor. Just like 2015 YM, 2016 Fit is about 1.6 inches shorter than previous-generation model but, on the other side, it has 1.2 inch stretched wheelbase, which provides more spacious and more comfortable cabin, especially on the rear, where legroom is increased for about 4.8 inches. Interior of 2016 definitely won’t be modified, because this model is already considered as one of the best in class in this segment. Some of the standard features are automatic climate control, 8-inch screen, navigation system, electric windows and electric front seats and also leather wrapped steering wheel.

Just like previous year model, 2016 Honda Fit will be powered by new 1.5 liter DOHC i-VTEC engine, which will be paired with either 6-speed manual transmission or CVT. It is expected that hybrid version will be available too. It will probably use the same configuration as Japanese model, which is consisted of 1.5-liter DOHC i-VTEC engine paired with 7-speed DCT and an internal high-output motor, IPU (Intelligent Power Unit) with lithium-ion battery, electric servo braking system with variable servo ratio control.
