These safety technologies are those that help keep a car on track on slick or uneven terrain and offer the driver greater insight into the world around them with exterior-mounted cameras. In short, these 2017 Honda Fit safety features actively help you to avoid an accident.
Multi-Angle Rearview Camera: Standard on each Honda Fit, the multi-angle camera engages when you shift into reverse and features guidelines for peace of mind while backing up. Just tap on the display to switch between top-down, wide-angle, and standard views. Fit EX and EX-L Navi models feature dynamic guidelines as well.
Honda LaneWatch: Found on EX and EX-L Navi models, the Honda LaneWatch system mounts a camera on the passenger-side mirror that offers you a wide look at your blind spot. Simply push a button or signal a lane change to the right and the in-dash screen displays what the LaneWatch sees.
Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA): Working with traction control, this vehicle safety feature ensures the Fit keeps its footing. If it detects oversteer, understeer, or lost traction, VSA can adjust brakes and engine performance to restabilize the vehicle and return control to the driver.
Daytime Running Lights: You may not be able to control how other drivers behave on the road, but you can make your vehicle more visible and easier to avoid. Daytime running lights are standard on the Fit and run whenever the vehicle is on, making it easier for drivers to see and avoid.
Tire Pressure Monitoring System: An under-inflated tire is more than an inconvenience; it’s a danger. This standard safety system warns you of tires that could be leaking or low on air so they receive the attention they need and you avoid an accident from erratic performance or a blowout from a damaged sidewall.
Advanced Braking Systems: Anti-lock brakes, electronic brake distribution, and brake assist are all standard on the Fit, keeping your wheels from locking, ensuring each wheel receives the right amount of brake force, and applying maximum braking power during hard braking.
A list of active and passive safety features may give you peace of mind, but the truth is that nobody ever wants to put their ACE body structure to the test. In order to be sure that safety is on the up and up, the 2017 Honda Fit safety features have been evaluated by top safety organizations.
