Design of Honda Fit
The 2017 Honda Fit manifests itself in 3 trim levels: LX, EX, EX-L. Standard equipment on LX models includes automatic headlights, LED brake lights, cruise control, 15-inch steel wheels, a height-adjustable driver seat, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, full power accessories, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, a 5-inch central display screen, a rearview camera, and a four-speaker sound system with a CD player, an auxiliary audio jack and a USB port. EX models add keyless entry and ignition, a 7-inch touchscreen display, an upgraded rearview camera, Honda’s LaneWatch blind-spot display, 16-inch alloy wheels, HondaLink smartphone app integration, an HDMI input, foglights, a sunroof, a six-speaker audio system with two USB ports, Sand Siri Eyes Free functionality for enhanced iPhone voice control. At the premium level, the EX-L has a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, body-color side mirrors that are heated, leather upholstery and also heated front seats. The EX-L also allows the available Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System with Voice Recognition and Honda HD Digital Traffic to be equipped, plus has the HD Radio (for use with streaming radio apps like ‘iHeartradio’) and also SiriusXM Radio. There is also Honda’s 60/40-split ‘Magic Seat’ that lets the back seats go up into the cabin space to create more room from roof to floor, as they flip up the seat cushions. This enables packing fragile and/or tall items easier than putting them way back in the folded down cargo area towards the hatchback end. The cargo area when all is folded down, by the way, is pretty vast 52.7 cubic feet of cargo room. The backseats have a lot of legroom for passengers, a refreshing change in the sea of cramped backseats in this particular segment. Child seats are easily attached as well in this vehicle, and the passenger seat folds flat down as well in the front so you can do the old standby of getting a few longer pieces of wood or a snowboard home when needed.
