August 5th, 2017 by

With the 2017 Honda fit winning several awards and most important, 2017 Best Subcompact Car for the Money  the 2018 Honda Fit has big shoes to fill. This is the first refresher since the 3rd generation fit release in 2015. With subtle exterior changes and added driver technology in the 2018 Honda Fit we believe it will hold the top position in the subcompact segment. Standard features on the 2018 Honda fit include backup camera, auto headlights, Bluetooth, and LED tail lights. The Sport trim which has been gone since the release of the third generation reappears on the 2018 Honda Fit. The Sport trim ads orange interior stitching, black alloy wheels, upgraded audio front and side under body spoiler, fog lights, chrome exhaust tip, and sport badge on the hatch.

The 2018 Honda Fit has an all new two piece black and chrome grill with update front fascia. The front fascia strongly mirrors the look of the 2017 Honda Civic and the soon to debut 2018 Honda Accord. Base models are equipped with 15 in steel wheels with hubcaps while the Sport model and above have 16 in alloy wheels. Although it is hard to tell the rear bumper on the 2018 Honda fit has also been redesigned.  Honda introduces two new colors on the Honda Fit, Orange Fury and Yellow pearl.
