The 2019 Honda Fit is arriving at dealerships next week, and Honda has managed to squeeze in an additional safety feature without increasing the price. Fit models with Honda Sensing — Honda’s suite of safety features that includes lane keep assist, road departure mitigation, adaptive cruise control and forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking — now also includes automatic high beams. Oh, and the available White Orchid Pearl paint color has been replaced with Platinum Pearl White.
Pricing for the 2019 Honda Fit starts at $17,080 (all prices include destination) for a Fit LX with a six-speed manual transmission, and ranges all the up to $22,410 for a fully loaded EX-L model. Sport models start at $18,390 with a manual, while EX models will cost $19,050. The EX-L without navigation has a starting price of $21,410.
Honda Sensing can be equipped on all trim levels of the Fit equipped with an automatic continuously variable transmission. It’s a $1,000 option for LX and Sport Fits, and standard on EX and EX-L models. That’s on top of the extra $800 charge to switch from a manual transmission to the CVT. For EX-L models, no manual transmission is available, but built-in navigation can be added for an additional $1,000. Sport, EX and EX-L models also include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration.
The Fit’s competitors include the Mitsubishi Mirage hatchback, Kia Rio hatchback and the not-long-for-this-world Ford Fiesta hatchback. The Mirage is priced between $14,260 and $17,460; the Rio starts at $15,095 and goes all the way up to $19,595; and the Fiesta hatchback starts $15,380, with a starting price of $22,160 for the sporty ST model.
