I’ve been testing out cars again, and I don’t think I’ll stop, even if I have found one that I love! I have to say this Honda Fit’s colour was really what I was initially and fully excited about. This particular ride is bright YELLOW, although, of course, it comes in less prominent colours, but why would you not want to be able to find you car so easily in the lot? And there’s a lot more going on in this subcompact ride than just the colour.
I took this vehicle over to Vancouver Island, so got some good highway rides in, plus scouted in and out of parking spots and did some city driving. This is me driving a boat, not the car; that dashboard is far more modern. As I was solo on the trip it would have been unsafe to get a picture of me driving the car!
There’s a lot of new features in the 2015, and I was surprised at the amount of power in this model; it’s now got a 1.5-litre engine with 130 horsepower and 114 pound feet of torque, and still has that great fuel economy the fit is known for. The interior is far from sparse and feels quite luxurious with larger seats and more leg room. It’s looks and feels sporty , and is super fun to drive with a nice smooth and now even quicker acceleration. The 2015 Honda Fit is available in six colours, including my very vibrant option. The Blue backlit instrument dials are stylish and functional and the Display Audio touchscreen interface and available leather seating increase the premium feel of this new Fit.
Also of note is the Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink®, Smart Entry Push Button Start, a one-touch operated moonroof, 7-inch touchscreen Display Audio with next-generation HondaLink, heated front seats, and leather seats if you choose these upgrades.
The car is super safe with traction control, side curtain airbags and the highest available crash-safety ratings, which thankfully I did not have to test. The 2015 Honda Fit – It’s a Fit for me! Sad to return this one.
Pricing: MSRP, + $1995 freight & pdi
Disclaimer: The vehicle was loaned to me by Honda, but unfortunately I didn’t get to keep it!
