Honda Fit Horsepower and Torque

The Honda Fit engine remains the same across all trim levels, so you’ll never feel the need to upgrade for the engaging performance you deserve. The 1.5L In-Line 16-Valve DOHC i-VTEC® 4-Cylinder delivers an athletic drive whether you’re heading into the city or changing into the fast lane on the highway, with Honda Fit specs including:

  • Up to 130 hp and 114 lb-ft of torque with the 6-speed manual transmission.
  • Up to 128 hp and 113 lb-ft of torque with the Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT)

Honda Fit Mileage Ratings

The Honda Fit provides two transmission options to suit two different kinds of driver. Those who like direct control over shifting for a track-like experience can choose the 6-Speed Manual Transmission (6MT). If you’d rather have seamless power delivery and automatic shifting, the Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) with Sport Mode is going to speak to you.

Mileage ratings remain strong with both options:

  • 6-Speed Manual Transmission (6MT): Makes up to an EPA-estimated 29 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway*
  • Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) with Sport Mode: Makes up to an EPA-estimated 33 mpg in the city and 40 mpg on the highway*


Honda Fit Performance Features

You might not know they’re there, but the Honda Fit’s performance features will be working tirelessly through every mile to refine your driving experience. Select performance features include:

  • MacPherson Strut Front/Torsion-Beam Rear Suspension: Sophisticated suspension systems keep your ride smooth and controlled while also providing strong feedback.
  • Front Stabilizer Bar: Fitted across the vehicle, the stabilizer bar helps minimize body roll as you head through corners.
  • Power-Assisted Ventilated Front Disc Brakes: Power-assistance provides sharper deceleration while ventilation minimizes fade.
  • All-Season Tires: Fitted as standard across all trims for all-season peace of mind.

Honda Fit Active Safety Features

As noted by The Car Connection: “The 2020 Honda Fit gets good crash test scores and offers active safety features on every model.” Those active features also refine performance by keeping the vehicle fully under your command through every twist and turn.

Select active safety features include:

  • Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control: Monitors performance and adjusts driving dynamics to provide outstanding stability and prevent understeer and oversteering.
  • Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD): Braking force is intelligently distributed between all four wheels for smarter stopping power whenever you hit the brakes.
  • Brake Assist: The Honda Fit will sense an emergency braking situation and provide added braking force to help avoid a collision.
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS): Overinflated or underinflated tires can impact performance, so the Honda Fit lets you know when air needs to be topped up or taken out.

Honda Fit Performance Styling

With several Honda Fit tire size and style options from which to choose, drivers can give the Honda Fit the performance-inspired edge they want. Wheel options include:

  • 15 in w/Full Covers
  • 16 in Black Alloys
  • 16 in Machine-Finished Alloys with Black Inserts

The Sport trim level adds several bolder exterior features to underline the vehicle’s compelling performance, including:

  • Front Underbody Spoiler
  • Rear Diffuser with Orange Accents
  • Side Underbody Spoilers
  • Chrome Exhaust Finisher
