  • 2017 Honda Fit

    When it comes to safety features, the 2017 Honda Fit stands out clearly as a leader in its class. Many Mid-Michigan drivers already trust the Fit to take them anywhere they need to go, and once you’ve seen the active and passive safety features on this smartly built small car, it’s easy to see why they’re so confident! When you consider that this year’s Fit is priced at just $16,090 MSRP,* it’s hard to imagine a better deal for drivers who take security seriously.

Active Safety in the 2017 Honda Fit

Like many of Honda’s automobiles, the 2017 Honda Fit comes equipped with standard safety equipment that will serve you well across a wide variety of situations and environments. Driver safety begins where your vehicle meets the road, and the Fit’s instrumentation includes a tire pressure monitoring system that will help you to know when it’s time for a change. The Fit also comes equipped with Vehicle Stability Assist with traction control, so you’ll enjoy increased torque and superior grip, even in rough terrain. What’s more, the Fit’s exceptional braking ability is made possible by an anti-lock braking system, electronic brake distribution, and brake assist technology, described in detail below. Drivers who desire to increase their visibility will be able to take advantage of both the Honda LaneWatch system and the Fit’s multi-angle rearview camera. Daytime running lights are also included as a standard feature on all Fit models.


Honda Fit Rearview Camera

Multi-Angle Rearview Camera: Even in its baseline LX trim, the Fit comes equipped with a multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines. Those who upgrade to the EX or EX-L trims will have their guidelines replaced with dynamic guidelines, which offer even greater utility.

Brake Assist: The development of electronic brake distribution has made it possible to equip every Fit trim with brake assist. When you detect an obstacle and place significant pressure on the brake pedal, the Fit’s electronic controls decrease stopping distance by immediately applying the full force of your brake pads.

Honda Fit Vehicle Stability Assist

Vehicle Stability Assistance: Electronic controls allow the Fit to slow your tires automatically in order to ensure maximum stability when you’re turning or accelerating. Traction control technology allows the Fit to perform this function in accordance with the demands of the terrain.

Honda LaneWatch: Simply adjust your right-hand turn signal in order to activate the Honda LaneWatch system, which comes standard on the EX trim and above. This feature uses a side-mirror-mounted camera to give you a complete view of your blind spot when you’re changing lanes.

Passive Safety in the 2017 Honda Fit

When you’re behind the wheel of the Fit, you’ll drive with the confidence that comes from a complete array of standard passive safety features. The frame of the Fit has been designed with Advanced Compatibility Engineering, and its interior has been equipped with all of the high-quality seatbelts and airbags that a family could require! On top of all this, the Honda Fit has been outfitted with child-proof rear door locks as well as Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH).
