Some of the most important features included on the 2018 Honda Fit trim levels are the active safety systems. All trim levels include:
Vehicle Stability Assist: Automatically works to maintain control while cornering if the vehicle turns more than desired and keeps traction while accelerating on loose or slippery road surfaces.
Advanced Brakes: Anti-lock brakes, electronic brake distribution, and brake assist help to vary brake force applied prevent locking and help you come to a stop faster when emergency braking is detected.
Daytime Running Lights: Makes it easier for other motorists to see you during the daytime.
Multi-Angle Rearview Camera: Gives you an extra set of eyes where you need them, allowing you to view the area directly behind your Fit right in the dash display.
All Fit models equipped with a CVT and the EX and EX-L trims include Honda Sensing, which gives you:
Forward Collision Warning: Gives an audio and visual alert when a collision is imminent with a slower-moving vehicle in front of the Fit.
Lane Departure Warning: Alerts you if you are drifting out of your lane using visual and audio alerts based on the detected lane markings.
Collision Mitigation Braking System: Automatically applies the brakes to minimize the chances of hitting a vehicle ahead of you in traffic.
Road Departure Mitigation System: If your vehicle gets too close to the detected lane markings without a turn signal being activated, steering wheel torque and brakes can be applied to ensure your Fit does not leave the road.
