2018 Honda Fit Sport Trim Level
For the 2018 model year, the Honda Fit adds a sporty new trim that is positioned between the LX and EX model grades. The Sport trim will have a host of amenities and technologies that drivers will love. The Fit Sport builds off the LX with exclusive interior trim featuring black cross-hatched fabric and orange accent stitching, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters on CVT models. In addition, the Sport model gains premium features found on EX trims including Honda’s 7-inch Display Audio touchscreen interface with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ compatibility, and a 180-watt six-speaker audio system.
Honda Sensing®, Honda’s suite of active, driver-assistive safety features are now available in the 2018 Honda Fit and are offered on all trim levels. This includes the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™), Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), and Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS). These technologies help to alert drivers to things they may miss while driving.
Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™
In addition to new safety technologies, the 2018 Honda Fit will have the availability of Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™. These infotainment platforms allow you to hook up your Apple or Android phone to the 2018 Honda Fit’s interface. This lets drivers remain focused on the road while accessing their music library, direction, and text message functions.
