2012 Honda Fit Gets Some Mild Updates

2012 Honda Fit Sport

The 2012 Honda Fit Sport was announced the other day and it comes with a bunch of changes, starting with the design where it will come with a new front bumper, an updated grille and a pair of tinted headlights. The car will ride on a new set of 16-inch alloys that have a “machined surface” finish.

As far as the cabin is concerned, it will come with a dark metallic trim, revised cup holders (exciting, right?) and more chrome accents. Aside from these rather insignificant updates, the 2012 Fit Sport will benefit from better seat upholstery, improved sound insulation and Bluetooth connectivity, the latter being an optional feature.

Under the hood there’s going to be only one engine available, a 4-cylinder 1.5-liter power unit that develops 117 hp (119 PS / 87 kW) and a peak torque of 106 lb.-ft (144 Nm). Honda estimates that the car will return 27 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway.

It will go on sale very soon and the base price will be of $16,910, which I guess it’s quite decent for one of the best cars in its class. It could have been a lot better if they did something more significant about the design, but I guess it’s a matter of tastes.
