Honda makes major changes to the 2015 Honda Fit, including new platform, engine and transmission
Stillwater, OK (PRWEB) September 26, 2014
STILLWATER, OK— Honda is introducing big changes in the new 2015 Honda Fit. With a brand-new platform, engine, transmission and look, the completely-redesigned Honda Fit will be better than ever.
Structurally, the 2015 Honda is 1.6 inches shorter than last year’s model and weighs about 100 pounds more, due to an increased volume of high-strength steel utilized in the construction process. The larger volume of high-strength steel results in both dramatically improved handling and added safety.
Powered by a 1.5-liter, direct-injected four-cylinder engine, the Fit delivers 130 horsepower and 114 lb-ft of torque. The result: the Fit hits 60mph starting from rest in 8.5 seconds. Along with a superior brake system, the Fit earned top marks in its class for fuel economy (36 mpg).
The 2015 Honda Fit prides itself on being a reliable, safe and comfortable vehicle. With the addition of a new suspension design, engineers were able to move the rear seats six inches further from the front, allowing more legroom and cargo space .
The Honda Fit received five-star ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the European New Car Assessment Program. From style to safety, the 2015 Honda Fit exceeds expectations in every category.
