The 2012 Honda Fit has been given a bit of a redesign to stay competitive in the B-segment.
The Honda Fit hatchback is set to undergo some new styling changes for the 2012 model. The Fit has been the premier B-segment leader since its arrival in 2008 and with all of the attention the series has been getting in the last few years, Honda deemed it fit to fit the new Fit with some nice tweaks to its overall design. The 2012 redesign includes black headlight bezels and a new grille. One of the big complaints the Fit received was its high level of road noise.
The steering wheel features audio controls and Bluetooth hands-free telephone service along with satnav to give the Fit some new features to help it distinguish itself from the pack. The new B-series group includes the Mazda2, Ford Fiesta, Hyundai Accent and some new models for 2012 like the Toyota Yaris and Chevrolet Sonic. The 2012 Fit hatchback still carries its 1.5-liter inline 4-cylinder engine that puts out 117hp and 106lb-ft of torque. The motor is coupled to either 5-speed automatic or manual transmissions. The Fit sits on a set of 15-inch wheels.
Pricing for the 2012 Fit is a bit more than the previous model, with the manual transmission starting at $15,945 and the automatic starting at $16,745.
