Regardless its size and speed capacity the company stuffs all its products with the state-of-the-art utilities. In comparison with its predecessor, the new 2016 Honda Fit will not substantially change.

The exception is the hybrid model which will get its own look.
Engine Options and Platform
The biggest changes started here – under the hood. First of all we should mention that the standard 1.5 liter motor will not be used again. Its place has taken the smaller and more economic 1.3 liter motor. Forget that it is smaller – it is not less powerful – even on the contrary. Such an engine will be capable of 130 lb of torque and will produce 100 horsepower. Two variations of transmission will be available: CVT gearbox and traditional manual six-speed one. The fuel consumption is surely smaller with the CVT type of transmission. One more engine variation will include a hybrid motor. Atkinson system of fuel cycling applied here will make possible great gas economy. Dual clutch transmission implied here will make the driving more comfortable and maneuvering. This last motor will produce up to 150 horsepower.
