2018 Honda Fit facelift: New Sport trim, colors, Honda Sensing safety tech

The 2018 model year Honda Fit has a mild facelift with a new grille, front and rear bumpers, and taillamp design, as well as upgraded safety technology.

There’s also a new Sport trim that fits between the LX and EX, and has an aero kit with front splitter, black 16-inch wheels, rear diffuser with orange trim, chrome exhaust tips, and Sport badges.

To make the Fit more “youthful” there are two new colors: Helios Yellow Pearl, which replaces Mystic Yellow, and Orange Fury.

The Honda Sensing safety package is now available on the Fit, and includes adaptive cruise control, automated braking, lane keeping assistance, lane departure warning, and road departure mitigation.

Honda Sensing is an option on the Fit LX and Sport, and standard on the EX and above.
