By the year 2015, Honda introduced a completely redesigned third-generation setting. It has a new look and the next generation of technology from Honda. The new model also keeps a great flexibility that I like the previous model. With the new powertrain, it remains to be seen if the new setting will continue managing the nature of his predecessor. I jumped behind the wheel of the Honda fit 2015 EX-L with navigation to discover. Under the hood is cut until 2015 Honda Fit is an engine of 130 hp, 1.5-liter the dream of the Earth. What is “land of dreams”, ask? Well, it is just as Mazda SkyActiv or Pure Drive of Nissan: a collection of vaguely fuel efficiency technologies and, more specifically, the term marketing.
Four-cylinder engine makes use of the variable valve timing car brand i-VTEC and direct injection technology to produce a respectable 114 pound-feet of torque. The output is not very big, but is a small bustling factory revolutions happily. There are a number of strong enough for an efficient compact, lightweight cars, where driving fast is becoming a matter of momentum instead of muscle. Locked motor, the input level, the standard six-speed manual transmission which sends power to the front wheels. Setting the level of EX-L sport, optional CVT (continuously variable transmission) became in the transmission are available only. I’m not a fan of CVTs, but a proper sport CVT is not terrible. Around the city, the transmission does not draw attention to itself, smoothly and intelligently selects the best mixing ratio of torque and efficiency.
2015 Honda Fit EX-L Manual
However, the CVT offers sport and manual program change (with steering wheel paddles) and is where things get less than ideal. When push actually manually selected, change the ratio of the CVT has the feel of that did not have the immediacy of the rubber-Bandy and exercise program automatically does a lot of hunting for the right relationship, a bit of throttle response, when, for example, wanted to add a corner of power, Pinto. We can not test this, but I have the feeling that the manual transmission is the best choice for driving enthusiasts.
The machine feels (and sound) energetic and vibrant, and the chassis maintains excellent dynamic compact sport Honda awaiting the agreement of the previous generation. The address is sensitive, but loses some of its communication on the switch for the generation of electric power-assisted steering. Even with the 2015 CVT setting seems a fun little economy in front of the driver. Our 2015 EX-L with navigation is top of the line, that entry keyless in functions and big red start button on the right side of the steering wheel. On the other hand, comply with the wheels all models have a button that activates the great green ECON hatchback support Eco feature, which remaps the curve of acceleration for fuel efficiency and better to light the go-ahead on the instrument cluster for letting me know, controller, when he was driving as efficiently as possible.
2015 Honda Fit EX-L Fuel Consumption
Equipped, estimates of Honda that fit us in 2015 will be 32 miles per gallon in the city, 38 Highway mpg and 35 mpg on the combined cycle. This navigation EX-L model is also the greatest example of programming; drivers seeking better fuel efficiency will have to see the level of entry level LX finished with the CVT for the estimated 41 mpg on the highway and 36 mpg combined. During the test, which consists of about half of the sporty driving and highway cruising with moderate traffic, average 33.6 mpg average mountain.
One of the interesting features that has always been the “magic” rear seats. 60/40 rear seat has a seat backs that is folded flat to accommodate large items, a long time ago. What makes it unique is that their chairs seats also fold and lock it in place, open great room, from floor to ceiling windows smooth behind the rear seats that can accommodate the objects. With the back door open to give access to spaces in the second row, it becomes very easy to adjust things to fit.
2015 Honda Fit EX-L Design
The driver, the convenient seat offers excellent visibility for the driver with low and very thin pillar. I am happy to see that car makers are moving, design high waist. In fact, the window next to the dip of the adjustment downward slightly, putting even more glass in front of the driver. Visibility into the future are very good is the camera behind the help of norms to see behind you. Not long ago, have such fit subcompact is considered a punishment for the sins of a previous life by the world community. They are traps deadly, thin, stiff, awkward, uncomfortable, if economic. Original configuration has done much to change that, however, and fortunately this new really threw the script. 2015 new game continues and improve, the practicality of its predecessor, but adds some much needed style and spirit of fun moniker.
The most impressive thing about the game was probably an internal volume… No, stop, don’t let: this is really interesting! Fit is a small car, even with the 1.6 inches shorter than the last game and 32 inches smaller than the full agreement of the medium. Everything disappeared and crossover SUVS. Although the outside of small dimensions, set has more rear legroom than the load and business space in the Yukon Denali even with the third row of seats folded. This is an incredible achievement… and I am sure it is against the laws of physics. Both so, looks like a Honda managed to M.c. Escher to design the car. It is good to see the work. After all, the deaths of 42 years, keeping the majority of the people again.
2015 Honda Fit EX-L Interior
The amount of bending interior space not only Escher, as tricks that are appropriate in the arms inside. Not only do the seats fold back, and also to create a huge cargo space, deep, ideal for furniture or other large items. Although announcement of the Honda, I am sure that is appropriate. But it happened last month, by what probably will never know. Talking about the announcement from Honda, I do not think that the assassins in series or open and spacious interiors also. However, the majority of customers should be. The high ceiling and large areas of glass makes it more appropriate to see. Lightness and light also helps deflect from the inside, put simply, is a car that started life in $15,560.
The Interior is a sea of plastic lower dark Court and mark it as clear a budget car. For this reason, inside is not bad. Probably fake, but “aluminum” trim lighten things, as well as giving the car a feeling of “designed”. The Control Panel also provides a nice soft touch faux leather and, since Honda make all adjustments really perfect. Those looking for luxury tones will have to pay the $21,745 loaded EX-L, while the protesters. For the price, the customer gets a leather wrapped steering wheel leather and touchscreen 7.0 seat inches (the base model is a non – 5.0 inch touchscreen). This addition does not include the roots of cheap cars, but definitely give the owner a more exclusive experience.
2015 Honda Fit EX-L Basic Settings
It is also suitable for toys, nothing less than modern and comfort. Even the most basic setting comes with air conditioning, power mirrors, power windows, cruise control, Bluetooth audio, camera five-star safety rating. The car is complete, customers get the navigation, information and entertainment, the camera’s blind spot HondaLink, heated seats and a sunroof. In short, almost all buyers can expect in cars that cost twice more. No-cost adjustment is a very cozy place to hang out. Good places, and has an ergonomic interior around. The new set also offers good style. The combination of crunchy and funky front give just the right amount of style and personality to a small car without venturing into the paranoid aggressive. This is a project that now looks very good and also to aging well.
Proper driving experience is not as polished as the style or interior design, but is still well above the average for a subcompact. All settings get their units of engine four-cylinder 1.5 liter that produces 130 horsepower and 110 pounds feet of torque. Far from being a great amount of energy, but it is not bad for a machine that moved less than serve as American standard of soda. Manual six-speed or a continuously variable transmission (CVT), a small four-cylinder engine can push the setting to 60 mph in about eight seconds. This can do a very fast, but is a good second faster than most of the competitors of the subcompact.
2015 Honda Fit EX-L Engine
Unfortunately, the choir seems to 1 million bees eat each other metal that accompanies each ran the game did. I pressed the demonstrators CVT highlighted this buzzy choir by keeping the engine at high rpm for a long time. At least not a bee craves: full adjustment a CVT is rated at 33 mpg in the city and 41 mpg highway. When the Honda Fit his debut eight years ago is quickly becoming a favorite of car buyers. It is fair to say is not because the style of the car was a little controversial, but with flexible configuration for indoor seats and cargo, motor fuel economy and attitude are relatively fun to drive, fit proves that you don’t have to suffer because anonymous econobox good mileage. Entering the third generation Honda Fit 2015 seems to keep good times rolling at the same time, what is most interesting.
The typical form of wedge that fits more charge more, but this time the game seems a little more adult. The design of a new grille and headlights, LED taillights and available 16-inch wheels harmonize visually with other Honda. The new Fit body overall length is shrinking a bit, but wheels are now defined this year and the rear suspension has been redesigned to make more room for people travelling in the back. In fact, the amount of space behind the passenger seat as the new setting really surprising, because even a pair of 6-foot-plus adults don’t feel squeezed.
2015 Honda Fit EX-L Improvement
Adjustment seat improvement comes at the expense of some luggage space, but with almost 53 cubic feet of cargo area, setting of 2015 remains substantially higher than its competitors. The main reason for this is the novel ‘magic’ adjustment of the Chair. His ability to fold completely flat or lower swivel for unmatched flexibility fit to carry passengers, mountain bikes, animals or things most of them. Suitable materials also won the availability of interior leather seats, heated, high-quality and features of new technologies such as the interface of larger touchscreen, intelligent and on phone without key application integration.
Almost everything new under the hood also. Four-cylinder engines are still 1.5 liters in size, but several studies, including the addition of direct injection technology, help to generate less power and fuel efficiency is better than ever. The new six-speed manual transmission (suitable previously only had five front teeth) and a new automatic transmission continuously variable (replacing the five-speed automatic) is also part of the offer. Hit the road and see stunning 32-36 mpg combined, depending on which model to choose.
2015 Honda Fit EX-L Fuel Economy
With a new look, improved fuel economy and more refined interior, 2015 Honda Fit wins “Classification” of Edmunds and, once again, one of the best in its class. The setting is also one of the cars in 2015, recommended above sedan buying guide. In fact, already not used to be a no-brainer, as alternatives such as Edmunds 2015 “To” excellent rating, Ford Fiesta and the Hyundai Accent is rich also prove that car doesn’t have to be interesting. These and other competitors also offer body style sedan and more commonly by default features for the money, but does not offer the kind of flexibility that puts at the disposal of the interior of one of the most versatile hatchbacks installation.
