It may be the basic 2017 Honda Fit trim level, but the LX trim is about as far from basic as it gets. While competing hatchbacks often have barren cabins or lackluster engines, the Fit offers some of the latest in technology and safety features as well as a peppy yet efficient 4-cylinder.
Here’s a quick look at the features our drivers love about the entry-level Fit:
Bluetooth: Standard on all Fit models, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink lets you pair a smartphone with the infotainment system for hands-free calling and streaming audio.
Rearview Camera: A multi-angle rearview camera offers three views of what’s behind the Fit; just shift into reverse and the camera display shows up on the 5-inch LCD screen in the dash.
Magic Seat: This Honda-exclusive rear seat features 60/40-split folding for easy expanding of your cargo area, but it goes a step further. Fold the seat up and set tall items on the floor of the Fit. The Magic Seat lets 95.7 cubic feet of the Fit interior be what you need it to be.
Add on the 130-hp 4-cylinder engine and the fact that the 2017 Honda Fit LX with CVT earns an EPA-estimated 40 highway mpg and 33 city mpg for 36 mpg combined city/highway,* and we think it’s clear why you’ve seen so many of these stunning little hatchbacks in the New England area. The entry-level Fit is for drivers seeking a connected, efficient, versatile hatchback for city or rural driving—basically anyone on the go!
As the mid-range trim, the 2017 Fit EX represents a step up from the LX and gives drivers a wide range of technology, comfort, and safety upgrades. In addition to features like Siri Eyes Free compatibility, HondaLink telematics, an upgraded six-speaker stereo system, and dynamic guidelines on the rearview camera, you’ll find these favorite features for our New England drivers:
Moonroof: The EX trim features a one-touch power moonroof that lets you enjoy the fresh air and sunshine without the wind taking control over your hair. Just press a button and let the sun in.
Display Audio: A 7-inch Display Audio touchscreen upgrades the infotainment system and makes it easy to manage your vehicle settings, music, phone, and more with just a few taps on the in-dash screen.
Honda LaneWatch: This Honda-exclusive blind-spot camera is mounted beneath the passenger mirror and gives you a glimpse at what’s in that blind spot whenever you signal to change lanes. Nothing compares to a visual check, but LaneWatch brings peace of mind.
The 2017 Honda Fit EX is the trim for drivers who want that added level of connectivity and love being able to just speak a few words to Siri and get an answer, even behind the wheel. It’s high-tech, high-style, and still efficient and affordable.
The EX-L is the top of the 2017 Honda Fit trim levels, and it gives the hatchback a significant boost in technology and class. Body-color side mirrors give the exterior design an extra touch of style while a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob give the interior a look that’s fit for the track.
Our most popular standard and available features on the EX-L trim are:
Leather Upholstery: As the top-of-the-line trim level, the EX-L brings a sense of class to the Fit’s sporty design and good looks. Leather-wrapped seats bring an improved level of durability and a feeling of luxury to your hatchback.
Heated Seats: Fight those New England winters with standard heated front seating in the Fit EX-L. By the time you get where you need to go, you might just want to linger in the driver’s seat for a bit longer.
Navigation: Found on the 2017 Honda Fit EX-L with Navi, the navigation system features a satellite link-up and voice controls so you can focus on the road while inputting your destination. The new navigation system can direct around traffic and put you on the fastest route to where you want to go.
Drivers upgrading to the EX-L with Navi will also find HD radio and satellite radio so you can craft the ultimate driving soundtrack. The EX-L and EX-L with Navi are for those who want an added level of class on their cars; this is the hatchback for the driver who needs to do it all.
