The 2019 Honda Fit remains the same small subcompact car that’s ready for big adventures. Its reputation was built on being a fuel-efficient hatchback that’s versatile and fun to drive, and that legacy lives on in the 2019 model.

History Lesson: The history of the Honda Civic

What’s new for the 2019 Honda Fit?

For the most part, the 2019 Honda Fit is unchanged from the 2018 model. The 2019 Fit models that are equipped with the Honda Sensing system now have automatic high-beam headlight control, and a new Platinum Pearl White exterior color is available. Even with these new safety and exterior features, there is no price increase on the 2019 Honda Fit from the 2018 Fit.

The 2019 Honda Fit is available in four trim levels: LX, Sport, EX, and EX-L.



The 2019 Honda Fit has a unique exterior design that  makes it look sporty and striking from any angle. Its aggressive front bumper, fog lights, and headlight housing design match the accented LED taillights, rear spoiler, and chrome trim for an all-around attractive Fit.

All 2019 Honda Fit models are equipped with a 1.5-liter inline four-cylinder engine, which is paired to either a six-speed manual transmission or Continuously Variable Transmission with Sport Mode.

The 2019 Honda Fit is as fuel-efficient as ever. Depending on the trim you choose, as well as the transmission paired with the 1.5-liter engine, fuel economy varies for the 2019 Fit.

Paddle shifters on the leather-wrapped steering wheel and a leather-wrapped shift knob enhance the driving experience to new racing heights.
