Active Safety

The Honda Fit is equipped with a suite of active safety features that work to keep you in control.


Honda Fit Vehicle Stability Assist

Vehicle Stability Assist: This system, standard on all Fit models, detects oversteering, understeering, or loss of traction, and takes action by adjusting engine power or brake force to get the Fit back in your control.

Honda Fit Brake Assist

Advanced Braking Systems: Every Honda Fit includes anti-lock brakes, electronic brake distribution, and a brake assist system. Wheel lockup during hard braking is prevented by applying variable brake force to each wheel; in incidents of emergency braking, the maximum braking power is applied to each wheel to help avoid collisions.

Honda Fit Rearview Camera

Multi-Angle Rearview Camera: This camera gives you an extra set of eyes in normal, top-down, and wide viewing modes. Dynamic guidelines that give you a visual representation of the path of your Fit are available on the EX and EX-L models. The rearview camera ensures safe navigation out of tight spots and gives you confidence in your maneuvering.

Honda Fit Tire Pressure Monitoring System

Tire Pressure Monitoring System: This notifies the driver when tires are under- or over-inflated, helping prevent blowouts and loss of traction and providing peace of mind.

Honda Fit Daytime Running Lamps

Daytime Running Lights: Lights automatically switch on when the ignition is engaged, increasing the Fit’s visibility to other vehicles and pedestrians, as well as offering extra illumination in unexpectedly darker conditions.

Passive Safety

The 2017 Honda Fit is designed with several passive safety elements that are at work without you and your passengers even knowing it.

  • ACE Body Structure: Honda engineers designed the Fit’s body structure with Advanced Compatibility Engineering in mind. It includes reinforced body sections in the most common collision locations as well as crumple zones that drive energy from a crash away from the driver and passengers, minimizing any injury that would be sustained in an unavoidable collision.
  • Airbags: The Fit has airbags where you need them, including advanced dual-stage multi-threshold front airbags, SmartVent front side airbags designed to prevent over-inflation, and side curtain airbags with a rollover sensor that inflates the bags in the event the Fit has rolled on its side, forming a cushion between the driver or passenger and the window.
  • Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren (LATCH): LATCH lower anchors and tether anchors in the second row allow for easy installation of child car seats, ensuring your most precious cargo arrives at your destination safely.
  • Three-Point Seat Belts: The Honda Fit seat belt design includes a three-point seat belt system, keeping the driver and passengers secured in their seats in the event of an accident. A front automatic tensioning system keeps the driver and passenger belts snug. A seat belt reminder sounds and flashes if the driver’s or front passenger’s belts are not secured properly.
  • Child-Proof Rear Door Locks: Kids on long car rides tend to explore, and child-proof rear door locks prevent them from inadvertently opening the doors or exiting the vehicle.

Driver-Assist Technology

Every driver could use an extra hand when navigating congested roads or driving through adverse conditions. The Honda Fit driver-assist features give you the co-pilot you’ve always wanted.


Honda Fit Lanewatch

Honda LaneWatch: Standard on the Fit EX and EX-L, the signature Honda LaneWatch system displays a wider view beyond what can be seen in the side mirrors. The system automatically displays the extended view every time you signal to turn or change lanes.

Hill Start Assist: This system engages automatically on steep inclines and keeps the car stationary after the brake is released until the accelerator is engaged, preventing involuntary rolling.
