2020 Honda Fit Mpg Specs, Release Date, Redesign – Honda upgraded its Fit for 2018 with sportier suspension tuning and Active Cruise Control — plus available Apple CarPlay and Android Auto — so little has changed with this space-efficient subcompact hatchback.
Outstanding versatility is the calling card of the 2020 Honda Fit, which is imbued with a spunky personality and sold in four trim levels: LX, Sport, EX and EX-L. All have Honda’s so-called Magic Seat, which folds in different ways to accommodate cargo of varying shapes and sizes.
One powerplant is available: a 1.5-liter 4-cylinder that sends 130 horsepower to the front wheels via a 6-speed manual or a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) with available paddle shifters.
With its compact overall size, roomy cabin and generous cargo capacity, the 2020 Honda Fit appeal to folks who relish space efficiency and fuel efficiency. At the same time, this Honda hatchback is a delight to drive, especially in tight city environs.
2020 Honda Fit Driving
The Fit is proof that a car doesn’t need gobs of horsepower to be fun. Agility and responsiveness are far more important, and the 2,600-pound Fit has both in spades, aided by a 6-speed manual gearbox with well-defined shift gates.
This fuel-efficient little Honda is a comfortable everyday runabout that shines on twisty roads, aided by firm but not jarring suspension tuning and accurate electric-assist steering.
2020 Honda Fit Details
Who doesn’t love a small car that accommodates tall people and lots of cargo? That, in a nutshell, is the 2020 Honda Fit. Creative packaging is largely responsible, with Honda placing the fuel tank beneath the front seats to free up room elsewhere.
And then there’s the clever Magic Seat, which splits 60/40 and folds in ways to let the owner carry a bicycle or even a surfboard.
Early Honda Fits looked slab-sided, not unlike a miniature minivan. The 2019 3rd-generation car, introduced for 2018, shed those looks in favor of a cleaner design that’s more chiseled and modern, with a steeply canted windshield and a sporty rooftop spoiler.
Eight color choices are available, and if you want black wheels, they’re available only on the 2020 Honda Fit Sport.
2020 Honda Fit Price and Release Date
A base-level 2020 Honda Fit LX with the 6-speed manual transmission carries a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $17,085, which includes the $895 destination charge.
Add $800 for the CVT and only $1,000 for Honda Sensing, making that safety suite a bargain in our book. Moving up in price, the Fit Sport has an MSRP of $18,395; the EX lists for $19,055; and the EX-L (CVT only) costs $21,415. 2020 Honda Fit Mpg Specs, Release Date, Redesign
