Honda Fit is a small city car, but it is certainly going to play a major role in achieving the goals that this company has set for itself, which is an increase of 18% by the end of 2017. year. Although it is still competitive, Fit slowly starting to show its age, and it was time for improvement. Honda plans to bring the 2014 Honda Fit on the cost-effectiveness of a leader in the auto industry.
Although there is not yet confirmed anything for Honda Fit, Honda announced 1.5-liter 4-cylinder engine with direct injection. Also still no official specification, but there are indications that this engine will be a 5% fuel efficient. Also this Honda engine offers 6% improvement in torque. It is estimated the engine will be the new CVT transmission, with the combination resulting in a 15 percent improvement in acceleration and 10 percent bump in fuel economy.
The powertrain also features a start-stop system that will shut off the engine when idling, though it’s not yet clear if Honda has any plans to bring start-stop technology to non-hybrid models in North America. The current Fit is rated at 117 hp and 106 lb-ft of torque, while offering 28 mpg city, 35 mpg highway and a combined 31 mpg.
Soon it will begin production of Honda Fit in Mexico, and is expected to increase sales to 200,000 units due to expansion of production lines. Honda plans to fit the model used as the basis for a new sedan and crossover, but it is not known whether the new models carry the Fit sign.
