  • 2017 Honda Fit Yellow

    Everyone knows that the 2017 Honda Fit offers incredible fuel efficiency and tons of interior volume, but many Mid-Missouri drivers may be unaware that it’s also one of the safest subcompact cars on the road today! With an affordable price tag to boot, the Honda Fit proves once and for all that you don’t have to compromise on your budget in order to access a car that offers both protection and excitement. Reflecting Honda’s long-term commitment to driver safety, almost all the Fit’s active and passive safety features are available right from the outset in its baseline LX trim! Find out exactly what you can expect from the Fit by exploring our breakdown below!

Active Safety Features in the Honda Fit

The Fit has a reputation for maneuverability, and of course, its smartly designed braking systems play a huge role in fostering this quality. Those who explore this subcompact’s features will discover an anti-lock braking system complete with electronic brake distribution. Electronic brake distribution allows the Fit’s built-in computer systems to respond to the road by directing power to each of the Fit’s brakes individually. In doing so, EBS makes it possible for the Fit to offer additional safety-enhancing technologies like brake assist and vehicle stability assist with traction control. Additionally, the Fit comes with a standard tire pressure monitoring system and daytime running lights, both of which work to improve vehicle safety by increasing the knowledge available to the driver. All 2017 Honda Fit trims come equipped with a multi-angle rearview camera. In the Fit LX, this camera offers static guidelines, and in other trims, drivers will receive dynamic guidelines instead! These increase the camera’s usefulness by moving as you angle your steering wheel. We’ve only begun to describe what the Fit can do, and you can learn much more by exploring its technology features.

2017 Honda Fit RedBrake Assist: Brake assist technology gives you the power you’ll need to bring your Fit to a rapid stop. This feature allows the Fit to recognize the signs of emergency braking, whereupon it immediately maximizes the force applied to each of its front disc and rear drum brakes.

2017 Honda Fit DrivingVehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control: When you employ VSA with traction control, it’s easy to stay right on course. VSA alters the rotational speed of each of your tires in order to help you stay grounded when you’re moving around a sharp curve. Traction control proactively performs a similar function whenever roadway conditions could lead to slippage.

Passive Safety Features in the Honda Fit

The passive safety features in the 2017 Honda Fit provide tons of additional protection that works to prevent serious injuries in the event of a collision. Even though the Fit is a small vehicle, it’s perfectly suited for families! All three of the Fit’s trims provide Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children, or LATCH, so it’s easy to secure your children’s car seats when you’re on the move. Child-proof rear door locks are also present on every model. Fit buyers will find three-point seatbelts in all five of the Fit’s seating positions, and what’s more, those in the front seats include automatic tensioning as well as a reminder system. Just as importantly, the designers of the 2017 Honda Fit have also outfitted it with three separate sets of airbags: dual-stage, multi-threshold front airbags, SmartVent front side airbags, and side curtain airbags with a rollover sensor.

NHTSA Safety Ratings

When the Fit’s extensive suites of active and passive safety features are taken into account, it’s no wonder that this year’s Fit earned a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the NHTSA.*
