2019 Honda Fit Safety Features
Active Safety Features
Active safety features give you the ability to respond to danger in record time. The following visibility and stability-enhancing features come standard across all trim levels.
- Multi-Angle Rearview Camera: Wide-Angle, Normal, and Top-Down viewing modes make it easy to back into that perfect parking spot or maneuver through tight spaces. The camera’s feed displays itself automatically when you shift into reverse.
- Daytime Running Lights: There’s a direct relationship between driver visibility and passenger safety! These Daytime Running Lights go to work hour after hour, giving you more time to respond to changing road conditions.
- Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control: It’s easiest to lose control when you’re rounding a curve or making a sharp turn. With VSA and Traction Control working in tandem, your tires will adjust their rotation automatically, for a more stable rideeven on rough roads.
Passive Safety Features
In an ideal scenario you’d never have to pay attention to your Honda Fit’s passive safety features. Every Fit has been designed with a full suite of technology features to make collisions less dangerous, as highlighted below.
Seatbelts and Airbags: All five Honda Fit seating positions have been equipped with three-point seatbelts. Additionally, front-seated passengers will be able to take advantage of automatic tensioning and built-in reminders. Advanced Front Airbags, SmartVent Front Side Airbags, and Side Curtain Airbags with a Rollover Sensor all come standard.
Advanced Compatibility Engineering: The 2019 Honda Fit’s frame has been specially designed to make collisions less dangerous. Certain portions of the frame are designed to collapse on impact, while others are designed to keep their shape. When a crash occurs, the collapsing portions absorb the majority of the dangerous forces.
Child Protection: Every Honda Fit comes standard with Child-Proof Rear Door Locks and a fullyfunctional LATCH system. “Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren” make it easy to strap in car seats, even when you’re in a hurry.
Honda Sensing and Driver-Assistive Technologies
Today’s most exciting safety features go to work automatically, forming an extra line of defense against the dangers of daily driving. Honda has gone the extra mile by making Honda Sensing safety features available on every trim, and those who upgrade to the EX or EX-L models will receive the features listed below as standard.
Automatic High-Beam Headlights: High-beam headlights can significantly improve a driver’s response time, but since they can be distracting to others sharing the road, they require active engagement. The Fit’s High-Beam Headlights automatically respond to the presence of other cars and dim accordingly.
Honda Sensing Tech: The Honda Sensing safety package includes a Forward Collision Warning, a Lane Departure Warning, a Collision Mitigation Braking System, a Lane Keeping Assist System, a Road Departure Mitigation System, and Adaptive Cruise Control! Each of these technology features uses a system of cameras, radar, and smart sensors to keep you out of harm’s way.
Honda LaneWatch: It isn’t always easy to keep a close eye on your blind spot, but that all changes with the Honda LaneWatch security system. Just activate your righthand turn signal to view a live feed of this normally hard-to-see space.
