You'll never believe what didn't happen!
In the automotive industry it's almost a given that new vehicle prices will creep upward from year to year. Be it in increments of 5, or 10, or 50 dollars, the price will increase. Which makes the 2019 Honda Fit's upcoming arrival at US dealerships a welcome surprise. Without any major changes to report, pricing for the base specification 2019 Honda Fit has stayed the same as last year, at $17,080 including destination. However, Honda did announce two extremely mild changes to the Fit's equipment groupings.
Auto high-beams has been added to models sporting Honda Sensing-equipped, as has a new Platinum Pearl White exterior color that replaces White Orchid Pearl. The Fit continues to be offered in four trim levels: LX, Sport, EX, and EX-L. Save the manual snobs, you'll be pleased to know that the LX, Sport, and EX models all come from the factory equipped with a six-speed manual transmission as standard kit. Honda's CVT is also available as an option for an additional $800. The company's suite of advanced driver assists and safety technology, Honda Sensing, is only available on CVT optioned cars for a further $1,000.
The 2019 Fit is available in eight different exterior paint choices: Helios Yellow Pearl, Orange Fury, Lunar Silver Metallic, Modern Steel Metallic, Crystal Black Pearl, Milano Red, Aegean Blue Metallic, and the new Platinum White Pearl. Standard features on all 2019 Honda Fit models include a rear view camera, a spoiler, auto on-off headlights, LED tail lights, Bluetooth, and a multi-function center console. It makes 130 hp and 114 pound-feet of torque from its 1.5-liter four-cylinder i-VTEC engine. The 2019 Honda Fit Sport is priced from $18,390, while the EX trim is $19,050. Sitting on the top shelf is the EX-L which starts from $21,140. Adding navigation to EX-L models pumps up the price by $1,270. Look for it in dealerships before the end of this month.
