As promised, at the 2014 Detroit Motor Show Honda unveiled a new US-spec Fit hatchback that introduces the Americans to a new kid of motoring that is all about efficiency. The sophisticated Japanese car has spot on packaging with that makes the best use of available space, and comes with ultra-efficient Earth Dreams engines.

Despite all that, Honda couldn’t help make the new model just a little bit bigger for America. The 2015 Honda Fit is wider (+0.3 in.) with a longer wheelbase (+1.2 in.) and features 16-inch wheels. These not only give the car a better look, they also enhance its handling.

The new Fit also delivers a significant increase in passenger volume (+4.9 cu ft) and rear legroom (+4.8 in.) compared to the previous model. The 2015 Fit is also blessed with a whole host of advanced standard features, including Bluetooth connectivity, multi-angle rearview camera, and Expanded View Driver’s Mirror, and available smart entry and start, a moonroof, heated front seats, Honda’s exclusive LaneWatch display and a 7-inch Display Audio touchscreen interface with HondaLink.

We should also address the new styling of the 2015 Fit, which has received very positive reviews so far. It features more aggressive front and rear fascia, not usually seen on cars of this class, and makes use of ED lighting technology big time.

2015 Honda Fit comes with an all-new direct-injected 1.5-liter DOHC i-VTEC engine with 130 horsepower rpm and 114 lb.-ft. of torque, available with either a 6-speed manual or a sporty and fuel-efficient Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). Fuel economy ratings are 33 city/41 highway/36 combined.
