Welcoming the New 2017 Honda Fit to Penticton, BC
2017 Honda Fit Performance & Economy
With last year’s updated powertrain configuration and direct injection technology running its engine, the 2017 Fit makes significant performance gains. All 2017 Fits share the same 1.5L four-cylinder engine that churns out a respectable 130 horsepower and 114 lb-ft of torque, while the new continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) replaces the old 5-speed automatic setup of the past, allowing for smoother revs during acceleration. Lastly, the new fit does well on fuel efficiency, too, with a combined 6.3L/100km (37 mpg), and an even better 5.4 (44 mpg) on the highway.
2017 Honda Fit Safety
Safety is often a greater concern for buyers in the subcompact segment. And that’s why so many opt for the Honda Fit, with its strong history of stellar crash test ratings and standard safety features. A full complement of airbags, standard ABS, traction and stability control, active head restraints, and a high-visibility driver’s aspect from behind the wheel provide a solid base for safety. Lastly, drivers will also appreciate the LaneWatch blind-spot monitoring system that comes with the higher trim levels, which pulls up a wide and low view of the right-hand blind spot on the media screen when the right turn signal is engaged.
2017 Honda Fit Interior
Inside, the new 2017 Honda Fit just got roomier. How much more room? Well, the rear seats provide even more leg room than the larger Accord, even from a subcompact. Returning by popular demand is the much-loved 60/40 split “Magic” seat that folds up and creates even more possibilities for rear storage. When the back seats folds flush, you can fit up to 52.7 cubic feet of cargo. But the new 2017 Fit is also being praised for the quality of its interior materials, especially the EX-L trim, which adds heated mirrors and front seats and full leather upholstery to an already comprehensive grouping of standard comfort and infotainment features.
