Fun to Drive

The Honda Fit features a new 1.5-literi-VTEC™ 4-cylinder engine connected to either a 5-speed manual transmission or an available 5-speed automatic transmission, which includes steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters on the Honda Fit Sport. The new engine is designed to offer the best balance of fuel economy and power, it produces 117 horsepower at 6600 rpm and 106 lb-ft. of torque at 4800 rpm. Larger 15-inch and 16-inch (Honda Fit Sport) wheels hint at enhancements to the Fit's suspension, steering and body rigidity, which are intended to produce sportier handling without sacrificing comfort.
