While we think that all of the 2017 Honda Fit technology features are designed to make your life a little more enjoyable behind the wheel, these amenities are focused on making your drive more convenient and comfortable.
Smart Entry: No one likes to dig for their keys when they’re in a hurry, and when you drive a Fit equipped with Smart Entry, you won’t have to. The car knows when your key fob is near, letting you simply walk up to the car, open the door, and sit down.
Push-Button Start: Smart Entry wouldn’t mean much if you then had to fish out your keys to start the Fit. Models equipped with Honda’s push-button start system know when your keys are in the cabin; after you’ve buckled up, press “Start” and hear the engine come to life.
Steering Wheel–Mounted Controls: With the Fit’s standard steering wheel–mounted controls, you can make and receive hands-free phone calls over Bluetooth, adjust cruising speeds, and switch tracks on your favorite playlist without taking your hands off the wheel.
Center Console: Placed between the two front seats for maximum convenience, the center console has room for your essentials, and with both USB and 12-volt charging outlets nearby, you can easily keep your smartphone or MP3 player charged.
Heated Seating: Montana winters can get particularly fierce, but the Fit is prepared with a pair of heated front seats. These winter wonders are available on upper models and feature two different heat settings for maximum comfort.
Eco Assist: The Fit’s engine is built for fuel economy, but many drivers could still use a nudge to be more fuel conscious. The Eco Assist system features bars around the speedometer that help coach you into becoming a more efficient driver, turning green as your driving habits become more efficient.
It can be tough to go too long without being connected to the rest of the world, and these 2017 Honda Fit technology features can help. From Bluetooth to navigation, the Fit has some of the best tech features on the road.
Bluetooth HandsFreeLink: With wireless Bluetooth connectivity, you can pair a smartphone with the Fit and have it connect automatically whenever you’re in the vehicle. Make hands-free phone calls or stream music wirelessly, and you can control it all from your steering wheel and in-dash infotainment system.
Display Audio Touchscreen: The available 7-inch Display Audio touchscreen gives the Fit an upgrade to a high-res display screen that uses the pinch and swipe commands familiar to smartphone users. Sort through vehicle settings, media options, infotainment controls, and more with just a few taps.
HondaLink: Bluetooth is the start of the connected car, but HondaLink is the future. This available Honda-exclusive telematics system takes your social media, Internet radio, podcasts, music, and more and makes them easily accessible behind the wheel of the Fit. The compatible smartphone app makes scheduling a service appointment as easy as switching to a new playlist.
Navigation: Honda’s satellite-linked navigation system is found on the EX-L Navi trim of the Fit, offering turn-by-turn directions to work, home, or out on the town. Traffic monitoring helps you get where you’re going quickly and easily, and voice controls respond to hundreds of different commands.
The top priority of any vehicle should be safety, and these 2017 Honda Fit technology features help make this sleek little hatchback one of the safest cars in its class.
Daytime Running Lights: Each Fit includes daytime running lights as a standard feature, switching on whenever you start the vehicle. While headlights make it easier for you to see, daytime running lights are designed to make the Fit more visible to others, increasing the likelihood another driver sees your car instead of colliding with it.
Vehicle Stability Assist: By featuring a traction control system, Vehicle Stability Assist aims to keep you in command of the Fit at all times. If it detects oversteer or understeer, it can adjust engine speed and apply brake pressure to stabilize the vehicle and keep you in control.
Multi-Angle Rearview Camera: Standard on each Fit, the multi-angle rearview camera switches on whenever you shift into reverse, displaying either a standard, top-down, or wide-angle view of what’s behind your car. Know that the path is clear and back up with ease using the built-in guidelines.
Honda LaneWatch: Another advanced safety camera, Honda LaneWatch is found on Fit EX and higher trim levels. As its name implies, this camera keeps an eye on a lane for you, mounted beneath the passenger-side mirror. When you signal to change lanes, the LaneWatch camera can show almost four times more of what’s in your blind spot than the side mirror alone.
