2016 Honda Fit MSRP, specs, changes – The Honda’s model, the Fit, or as in the European, Middle Eastern, African and the bigger part of the Asian market, also known as the Jazz, presents a subcompact vehicle, which was first presented in 2001. For these 14 years that it was present on the global market, it scored quite impressive sales results, 5 million units to be more precise. The new model is soon to be available, and it will be designed in a way that will satisfy most of the everyday city needs, and hopefully be the top car in its class.
2016 Honda Fit (Jazz) changes
As far as the exterior of the 2016 Honda Fit is concerned, the design will not be that much different from the previous models. The most obvious changes will be applied on the grille and bumpers, with the grille being slightly restyled, and the bumpers more aggressively designed, giving the car a more modern overall appearance. Furthermore, the profile of the car received a new character line that starts from the front wheel arch, and raises up over the entire profile, forming a channel that ends at the back lights, which are now LED powered. The previous model received the new platform and came as a new generation model, so this mid-cycle refresh on the new model is not a surprising thing at all.
When it comes to the interior of the new 2016 Honda Fit, it does offer some new tech features, but on the other hand the cabin space is actually a bit smaller than in the previous model, which can be a problem for the tall back seat passengers. As for the technology equipment, the new model comes with an 8-inch touchscreen display, automatic climate control, powered front seats, audio system, leather wrapped steering wheel and more. All in all, this subcompact comes with all the things the car from this class should have.
New Honda Fit 2016 engine and MPG
Regarding the engine lineup, the new Honda Fit 2016 will offer a new engine and a hybrid system.

As for the transmission, a 6-speed manual gearbox and the CVT will be available. The fuel economy of the Earth Dreams Technology direct-injection 1.5L DOHC i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine is rated at 29/37 mpg with the manual gearbox, and 33/41 mpg with CVT. There are some rumors about comeback of the hybrid version which will come as a combination of the 1.3-liter petrol engine and an electric motor. This system should have a total output of 150 horses, and it will be teaming up with the 7-speed dual clutch CVT automatic transmission. The hybrid is expected to return around 50 mpg.
