In the last few days, we saw several manufacturers revealing their updated models for the next year. This time, the Japanese people from Honda unveiled the 2012 model year Fit, a model which receives only few styling tweaks and new equipment. Under the bonnet, the small Fit is powered by the same 1.5-liter four-cylinder unit capable of producing 117 horsepower and 144 Nm of torque.
The entry-level Honda Fit will benefit from console ambient lighting, side mirrors painted in the body color and new wheel covers. The 2012 Fit Sport also gets chrome accents inside along audio controls for the steering wheel and a revised dashboard in dark metallic finish.
The four-cylinder engine comes with a manual transmission returning a combined fuel economy of 29 mpg while the automatic gearbox will deliver a fuel economy of 31 mpg.
Lastly, the 2012 Honda Fit will offer the customers the Bluetooth HandsFreeLink system along a navigation system with voice recognition. A new front bumper, 16-inch alloy wheels, tinted headlights and a reworked front grille complete the exterior appearance.
“The Fit’s compact size and tight turning diameter (34.4 feet, curb-to-curb) can conveniently navigate space-confined urban areas and fit in small parking spaces,” says the company.
