What’s new with the 2011 Honda Fit? Honda hasn’t exactly reinvented its segment-leading subcompact hatchback, but it has added some standard content to base models, which now start at $15,850.
For that price (add $800 to swap the five-speed manual for an automatic), Honda now includes the stability assist technology, cruise control, remote entry, and a USB audio interface.
The Fit’s 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine remains unchanged, making 117 horsepower and 106 pound-feet of torque. Aside from four new colors — Alabaster Silver Metallic, Polished Metal Metallic, Celestial Blue Metallic and Vortex Blue Pearl — there are no exterior changes.
Carpeted floor mats become standard equipment on the Fit Sport and Sport with Navigation trim. Fit Sports without the navigation system see price hikes of $450, meaning the Sport with a manual transmission will cost $17,610 while an automatic-equipped model starts at $18,460. Splurging on a Fit with a navigation system will run you $19,990. As in 2010, only the automatic transmission is available with the navigation system.
All prices include a destination fee of $750.
