For 2018, the Honda Fit got a small refresh that consisted of new front and rear fascias, new grilles, and updated wheels. On top of the makeover, it likewise acquired a new Sport cut that included a touch of sportiness to this tiny hatchback. For 2019, we expect no major changes to the Fit.

In terms of appearances, we expect the 2019 Fit to be a carryover, as there are no visual changes of note in the works. We also anticipate the Fit’s interior to remain the same as well. If you’re counting the days up until a totally revamped Fit hits display rooms, you’ll need to wait at least another model year, as we don’t expect a redesign up until 2020 at the earliest.
With the appearances staying the very same within and out, we do not anticipate to see any huge changes to the Fit’s standard features.

As before, we expect a six-speed handbook to come requirement.
In IIHS screening, the existing Honda Fit received “Good” rankings in all the crash checks it’s finished. Nevertheless, it is not an IIHS Top Safety Pick since the institute has actually not evaluated it in the required small-overlap situation. Even if it does receive a “Good” rating in the remaining test, which is a hard accomplishment for a subcompact car, it still can not arrive Safety Pick+ top due to the fact that of its “Poor” headlight score. The highest score it can receive is just Top Safety Pick.
