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.
Brake 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.
Vehicle 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.
Multi-Angle Rearview Camera: Steer clear of obstacles with normal, top-down, and wide-angle camera views.
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.*
