The Honda Fit is getting a manual option for 2020.
The 2020 Honda Fit has arrived in showrooms featuring increased cargo capacity, a 1.5-liter direct-injected 4-cylinder i-VTEC engine and an available 6-speed manual transmission.
For 2020, the Fit lineup starts with the Fit LX and the more aggressively styled Fit Sport, both available with a 6-speed manual transmission. Fit EX comes standard with Honda Sensing and an automatic transmission, while Fit EX-L adds leather upholstery and more. For the 2020 model year, Honda Sensing is no longer available on LX and Sport trims.
All Fit trims are powered by a 1.5-liter direct-injected 4-cylinder i-VTEC engine producing peak output of up to 130 horsepower (SAE net) and 114 lb.-ft. of torque (SAE net). In LX and Sport trims a slick-shifting 6-speed manual is standard, with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) available; the CVT is standard on EX and EX-L trims.
The Honda Fit aims to blend fun-to-drive performance with outstanding fuel efficiency and comfort in a high-quality, affordable package. Clever packaging, such as the fuel tank mounted underneath the front-row seats, gives the 2020 Fit plenty of cargo capacity, boasting 52.7 cubic-feet of space with the rear seats folded down. Standard features on all Fit models include rearview camera, liftgate spoiler, auto on-off headlights, LED taillights, Bluetooth and a multi-function center console. Fit’s vibrant palette of exterior color consists of seven choices: Orange Fury, Lunar Silver Metallic, Modern Steel Metallic, Crystal Black Pearl, Milano Red, Aegean Blue Metallic and Platinum White Pearl.
For the latest in-vehicle connectivity experience, Sport models and up include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration through a high-resolution, 7-inch touchscreen. The available Honda Sensing suite of technologies includes Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS) with Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and pedestrian detection, Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) with Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and auto high-beam headlamps.
