Honda has officially unveiled the third-generation 2015 Honda Fit in Detroit. The new Fit, which is already on sale in Japan will arrive here in the Spring.
The Honda Fit is a small car with big aspirations. Faster, more fuel-efficient and more fun, it’s a subcompact with larger-than-life-capabilities,” said John Mendel, executive vice president of automobile sales for American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “It’s simply the best Fit to date and, we believe, a new benchmark in the small-car category.”

Compared to the last Fit, the new 2015 Fit is slightly shorter (-1.6 in.) and wider (+0.3 in.) with a longer wheelbase (+1.2 in.). Even though the new Fit is about the same size as the last one, it delivers a significant increase in passenger volume (+4.9 cu ft) and rear legroom (+4.8 in.) compared to the previous model. There’s also 52.7 cubic feet of cargo space when the rear Magic Seat is folded flat.
