2016 Honda Fit review, mpg, price, specs – Honda Fit was originally released in 2001 and the third generation has been with us for a while. Initially, it was introduced to North American market in 2014 at North American International Auto Show. In June last year Honda Fit was finally available on the market as a 2015 model. The next generation will have only minor refreshments. However, we heard through the grapevine that hybrid version will finally come to the American market. These are still unconfirmed rumors but hybrid has been anticipated for such a long time and Honda will make a mistake if they don’t launch hybrid Fit this year. Regardless of that, we proudly present you the new Honda Fit 2016.
2016 Honda Fit review
The 2016 Fit will take after 2015 model, but hybrid will have few different characteristics. It is available in three trim levels: LX, EX and EX-L. Different grille and new front bumper are going to be used along with 14-inch wheels, in order to reduce fuel consumption and reach 50 mpg. Inside, standard equipment will be used and new Honda Fit won’t have any special additional feature. 2016 Honda Fit comes with automatic climate control, navigation system, electric front seats and 8-inch screen placed on the dashboard. Steering wheel is wrapped in leather which will contribute to driver’s convenience. Perhaps the biggest change in the cabin is increase of the legroom which is approximately 4.8 inches longer than before.
