The Honda Sensing suite will be available with automatic transmission-equipped Fits, and will include adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, Collision Mitigation Braking System, Road Departure Warning.
“With sporty new styling and additional feature content, the 2018 Honda Fit ups the ante with new styling and sophistication not typically found in the subcompact segment,” said Jean Marc Leclerc, Senior Vice-President Sales and Marketing, Honda Canada Inc. “Fit has always represented a great value for subcompact customers and the addition of available Honda Sensing to its fun-to-drive performance and unmatched versatility will keep the Honda Fit as the industry’s benchmark subcompact.”
