2015 Honda Fit: Video Summary From Detroit Auto Show

Follow John

Undoubtedly the most important green car at a rather scattered Detroit Auto Show, the 2015 Honda Fit promises to be a strong entry in the subcompact segment when it arrives this spring.

The latest generation of the most flexible and versatile small hatchback on the market, the new Fit is expected to deliver a combined 36-mpg fuel-economy rating--the best of any subcompact with an automatic transmission--and a price that shouldn't rise much from its current level.

That will be due to a new manufacturing plant in Mexico just now starting to build Fits for North America. They'll be joined on the assembly line later on by a new subcompact crossover and most likely a four-door sedan model as well.

The Fit's direct-injected 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine now produces 130 horsepower, and it's paired with either a six-speed manual gearbox or an optional continuously variable transmission (CVT) that delivers the highest gas mileage.
