The Technology Features of the 2017 Honda Fit

  • 2017 Honda Fit

    The 2017 Honda Fit is a subcompact hatchback that is breaking all the rules. Its compact size makes it versatile and easy to maneuver on the road, but inside is spacious and loaded with high-end technology features that bolster comfort, convenience, safety, and even luxury that drivers might not expect from a subcompact. Each of the three available trim levels of the Honda Fit builds upon the foundation set by the one before it. So no matter what your driving style, needs, or lifestyle, there is a Honda Fit model that’s right for you.

Standard Technology Features

Even the base-model Fit, the LX, offers a long list of features that drivers will be hard-pressed to find on comparable entry models. Some of the technology features you’ll find as standard mainstays inside the Fit include:


Honda Fit Steering Wheel ControlsSteering Wheel–Mounted Controls – These controls give drivers dominion over audio adjustments and connectivity features—as well as the cruise control feature, which is also a part of the standard equipment list—all without having to take your hands off the wheel.

Honda Fit Rearview Camera

Multi-Angle Rearview Camera – The camera has three views that drivers can switch between: normal, wide, and top-down. Using the camera feature can make backing in and out of tight spaces, as well as checking the Fit’s surroundings, much easier.

Honda Fit USB Ports

2 Front Power Outlets and USB Port – Two standard 12-volt power outlets as well as a USB port are up front in the Fit, which means you can charge up multiple devices.

Honda Fit Bluetooth

Bluetooth HandsFreeLInk and Streaming Audio – Drivers can connect compatible devices with the Fit and access streaming music and other phone or device features via Bluetooth.

Honda Fit Display Screen

5-inch Touchscreen Display – The display screen is a 5-inch color LCD screen interface that is intuitively designed to make navigating through features and information easy.

Honda Fit Econ Button

ECON Button – Standard on the Fit models equipped with the CVT transmission option is the green ECON button, which optimizes the engine performance, transmission, air-conditioning, and cruise control to help save fuel. That means you can be kinder to the environment and make fewer visits to the pump.

Honda Fit Volume Control Radio

Speed-Sensitive Volume Control – This feature adds a little touch of luxury and convenience. When the Fit slows down or is cruising slowly through, say, a parking garage, the volume will automatically lower. And when the Fit hits the open road again, it’ll crank out the tunes once again.

Honda Fit ECO Assist

Eco Assist – This feature visually communicates to drivers how efficiently you are driving. Adjust your driving to make the light greener and know that you are driving as efficiently as you can.

Other Standard Features

There are so many other standard features to note inside the Honda Fit that continue to bolster comfort and convenience. Air-conditioning, power windows and door locks, cargo area light, rear wiper, and automatic headlights are just a few. The Fit also comes standard with a Honda-exclusive Magic Seat in the rear that can be converted into four different seating and cargo configurations: Utility Mode, Long Mode, Tall Mode, and Refresh Mode. Altogether, the maximum cargo space measures at a 52.7 cubic feet. That’s enough room for a small couch, a whole lot of camping equipment, or even a snowboard.

Upgraded Technology Features

For drivers who are looking for even more technology, comfort, and driving aid features, the EX and the EX-L trim add even more to the already loaded LX trim. Some of the tech features you’ll find inside both models include Pandora compatibility, SMS text message function, and one-touch power moonroof, as well as:

  • HondaLink – Drivers with a compatible smartphone can access music, podcasts, and other content seamlessly.
  • 7-inch Display – Upgraded from the 5-inch display on the LX model, this larger color LCD touchscreen still lets the driver and front passenger intuitively navigate through content.
  • Honda LaneWatch – With a camera mounted on the passenger-side mirror, when the driver signals for a right lane change, a live video feed comes up on the display screen, allowing drivers to see up to four times more than they can using the mirror alone.
  • Push-Button Start – Drivers won’t have to dig through pockets or purses for the keys to the Fit; just start the engine with a push of a button.
  • Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Guidelines – This features adds guidelines to the standard multi-view rearview camera, which helps drivers guide the Fit in and out of tight spaces.
  • Smart Entry – Lock or unlock the Fit without having to dig for the keys.
