2020 Honda Fit Performance

A leading Honda powertrain combines outstanding Honda Fit MPG rating with the type of performance seldom seen in the subcompact segment. That means you can expect to enjoy a rewarding drive whether zipping through busy city streets or changing lanes on the highway, so read on to explore:

  • Honda Fit Horsepower and Torque
  • Honda Fit Mileage Ratings
  • Honda Fit Performance Features
  • Honda Fit Performance Styling

Honda Fit Horsepower and Torque

At the heart of each Honda Fit sits a 1.5L In-Line 16-Valve DOHC i-VTEC® 4-Cylinder that commands:

  • Up to 130 hp and 114 lb-ft of torque with 6-speed manual transmission models.
  • Up to 128 hp and 113 lb-ft of torque with Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) models.

The Honda Fit engine is perfectly optimized for everything from sharp low-speed maneuvering to calm and commanding highway cruising. Unlike other subcompact models, the 2020 Honda Fit doesn’t provide practical dimensions at the cost of everyday performance.

Honda Fit Mileage Ratings

The Honda Fit is a favorite among families and young professionals, and you only have to look at its MPG ratings to understand one big reason why. Sophisticated transmission systems include:

  • 6-Speed Manual Transmission (6MT): Comes as standard with the LX and Sport to provide direct control and track-like agility. You’ll make up to an EPA-estimated 29 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway*
  • Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) with Sport Mode: Available with the LX and Sport or standard with the EX and EX-L, CVT continuously adjusts power delivery for outstanding efficiency and seamless performance. You’ll make up to an EPA-estimated 33 mpg in the city and 40 mpg on the highway*

Efficiency is further improved through the Honda Fit’s:

  • Eco Assist™ System: Shows how your driving behavior impacts fuel consumption to coach you into a more efficient driving style.
  • ECON Button: Optimizes throttle response, cruise control, air conditioning, and transmission performance to focus on efficiency.

Honda Fit Performance Features

The Car Connection writes of the Honda Fit that: “Handling is sharp and responsive thanks to a short wheelbase and tossable dimensions, and the suspension handles road imperfections well for such a small car.” Compelling driving dynamics clearly come down to more than just the Fit’s impressive powertrain – in fact, you’ll have a whole suite of performance features working through every journey to optimize your ride.


Honda Fit performance features include:

  • MacPherson Strut Front/Torsion-Beam Rear Suspension: Sophisticated suspension irons out bumps and irregularities in the road while delivering precision feedback for an engaging drive.
  • Front Stabilizer Bar: Fitted across the vehicle, the stabilizer bar helps control body roll when you head into tight turns and corners.
  • Power-Assisted Ventilated Front Disc Brakes: Power-assisted brakes provide increased stopping power while ventilated helps minimize brake fade over time.
  • All-Season Tires: All trim levels come with all-season tires fitted as standard for year-round peace of mind.

The Honda Fit also boasts a wide range of active safety features responsible for refining performance to keep the vehicle under your full control at all times. Select features include:

  • Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control
  • Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS)
  • Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD)
  • Brake Assist
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)


Honda Fit Performance Styling

The Honda Fit’s sweptback profile promises outstanding performance before you even slip inside, and the Sport model even offers drivers the opportunity to mirror that ride with bolder exterior styling accents, including:

  • Front Underbody Spoiler
  • Rear Diffuser with Orange Accents
  • Side Underbody Spoilers
  • Chrome Exhaust Finisher

You’ll also have the freedom to choose between three Honda Fit tire size and design options:

  • 15 inch with Full Covers
  • 16 inch Black Alloys
  • 16 inch Machine-Finished Alloys with Black Inserts
