The first vehicle in the four-model lineup for the 2018 Honda Fit trim levels is the LX. The LX is a great vehicle for those looking for a daily driving vehicle that will satisfy their needs and their budgets. Priced at an incredibly affordable $16,190 MSRP for 6MT models,* the LX trim is already fulfilling one of the checklist items. At a price like this, some may think that they’re going to receive the absolute bare minimum, but that’s not the case when it comes to the LX. Outfitted with a 1.5L I4 engine, this vehicle has the power to dole out 130 hp and 114 lb-ft of torque when equipped with the standard 6-speed manual transmission. However, the optional CVT is plenty powerful as well, with 128 hp and 113 lb-ft of torque. Other great features that can be found on this base model include a multi-angle rearview camera, second-row Magic Seat, and optional Honda Sensing.
Next up is the Sport, a new addition to the traditional Fit lineup. This trim is for drivers who are searching for a practical, yet sporty and affordable compact vehicle. Priced at $17,500 MSRP for 6MT models,* the Sport trim isn’t a large price jump from the base model at all. While it shares an engine and 6-speed manual transmission with optional CVT, the Sport trim is much more, well, sporty. To make that incredibly clear, this trim comes equipped with front, side, and rear underbody spoilers, 16-inch black alloy wheels, and optional paddle shifters. These extras provide a sure boost for sportier performance and style at the same time. Alongside these sporty upgrades, the Sport comes with all of the features on the LX with the addition of some high-tech features like a 7-inch Display Audio touchscreen.
The EX follows the Sport trim and is packed with features and systems that are sure to put a smile on any technology lover’s face, all while keeping their wallets happy, too. At a price of $18,160 MSRP for 6MT models,* the EX lets drivers access the same great features available on the LX, but with the addition of some new friends like Honda Sensing, a one-touch power moonroof, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. Like the LX, this trim shares the same engine, standard 6-speed manual transmission, and optional CVT.
Last but not least is the EX-L—a slightly upgraded version of the previous EX model. With a load of impressive and luxurious features, this trim is the perfect partner for the price-savvy luxury lover. This trim is priced at $20,520 MSRP,* making it one of the more affordable top-tier trim levels on the market. This trim shares the same engine setup as the previous three models, but a CVT with paddle shifters comes standard. The EX-L borrows features from the EX, but then adds some greatness of its own with such luxury elements as a leather-trimmed interior, heated front seats, and an available Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System.
