2015 Honda Fit Is All-New With More Horsepower This Spring

The all-new 2015 Honda Fit, completely redesigned from the ground up, is slightly shorter (-1.6 in.) and wider (+0.3 in.) with a longer wheelbase (+1.2 in.) with an increase in passenger volume (+4.9 cu ft) and rear legroom (+4.8 in.) compared to the previous model. The 2015 Fit is equipped with an all-new 130 horsepower direct-injected 1.5-liter DOHC i-VTEC engine, 13 horsepower more than the outgoing engine, and paired to two new transmissions, a 6-speed manual or a Continuously Variable Transmission with available paddle shifters. The EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings are 33 city/41 highway/36 combined for the CVT-equipped models. The 2015 Fit will be in production next month and go on sale in the U.S. this Spring.
