If you're a driver in the East Stroudsburg, Stroudsburg, Bethlehem, Easton and Jim Thorpe area looking for a small vehicle with a great deal of capability, you'll want to consider the 2017 Honda Fit. In this review, you'll learn all about the nifty features found in the Fit and how you can experience them for yourself at Ray Price Honda.

Eco-Friendly Performance

honda fitThe 2017 Honda Fit was built to provide drivers with the most fuel efficiency possible in a compact vehicle. The 36 MPG highway and 29 MPG city1 it maintains are due in large part to the Eco Assist™ System that comes with the car. Eco Assist™ will coach drivers through efficient driving practices via their dashboard, teaching them how to save the most gas. To further reduce fuel consumption, drivers can press the ECON button to optimize the engine, transmission, air conditioning, and cruise control.

Though the Honda Fit is highly efficient, it's still equipped with a strong engine, compared to many in its class. The 1.5L 4-cylinder can achieve up to 130 horsepower and 114 lb-ft of torque, and includes a direct injection fuel system to cut down on carbon emissions.

2017 Honda Fit Interior

The interior of the Honda Fit is where versatility truly shines through. Although it can seat up to five passengers, the second-row Magic Seat®can fold into many useful configurations to increase cargo space. Fold over the second row completely for a spacious Utility mode that'll allow you to store items big and small. Fold one or two seats for the Long and Tall mode. When your vehicle is parked, fold back your front seat and recline the second row for a comfortable nap in the Refresh mode.

Built for Safety

The 2017 Honda Fit is built tough with the Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure. Vehicles built with the ACE™ body structure include a network of front frame structures that'll both absorb and deflect impacts. This will ensure that in the event of a collision, as little force as possible will be transferred to the cabin.

It's in part the ACE™ body structure that helped the 2017 Honda Fit earn a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.2 However, the Fit includes many other safety features that contributed to this ranking, such as Daytime Running Lights and Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®). VSA® will help control your vehicle during sharp turns and increase traction on slippery surfaces.
