The Fit may be small, but it’s a great choice for drivers with families! The Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) system make it easy to strap in car seats for young passengers, and rear-door child locks provide an additional layer of protection. Of course, the Fit also comes equipped with three sets of airbags that provide protection from all angles in the event of a crash! These sets include dual-stage, multiple threshold front airbags, SmartVent front side airbags, and side curtain airbags, activated via a rollover sensor.
Honda has earned the trust of drivers everywhere by seeking to make great safety features more accessible! Each of the features listed above comes standard in the 2017 Fit, regardless of which trim level you choose.
Safety isn’t all about seatbelts and airbags anymore, and in the 2017 Honda Fit, you’ll be protected by a number of today’s most advanced safety technologies. Features such as anti-lock brakes and electronic brake distribution allow the Fit to respond to changing road conditions with decisive speed. It’s also important to note that the Fit comes standard with computer-powered brake assist technology! Considered together, these braking features ensure that even when you’re caught off guard, your Fit will be prepared for the unexpected. Few drivers understand the essential role that tires and traction play in keeping them safe, but you won’t have to worry about these elements in the 2017 Honda Fit! The Fit has been equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system to help you steer clear of blowouts and other issues, and what’s more, every Fit offers vehicle stability assistance with traction control as a standard feature. At the end of the day, there’s no substitute for great visibility when it comes to driver safety, and to that end, the Fit offers daytime running lights and a rearview camera with guidelines!
Brake Assist: In emergency braking situations, humans are limited by their reaction time. With brake assist technology, however, your Fit will be able to recognize danger and apply the full force of its brakes to slow you down! The Fit’s electronic control unit sets this feature to action whenever you apply greater-than-average pressure to the Fit’s brake pedal.
VSA with Traction Control: Vehicle stability assistance allows your vehicle to correct for over- or under-turning along sharp curves, while traction control works to prevent slippage on difficult terrain. The features are made possible by the Fit’s ability to intelligently direct engine output and braking power wherever you need it most!
Rearview Camera: Eliminate the dangers that come with maneuvering in close quarters by activating the Fit’s standard rearview camera. Even in the baseline trim of the Fit, the LX, your monitor will display guidelines in order to help you direct your vehicle. By upgrading to the Fit EX or the Fit EX-L, drivers will instead receive a rearview camera with dynamic guidelines. Unlike the static guidelines in the Fit LX, dynamic guidelines move in accordance with your vehicle’s positioning and direction.
