One of the main goals of modern auto tech is to make your life easier, and these 2017 Honda Fit technology features focus primarily on convenience.
Smart Entry: This available feature makes it easy to get into your car in a hurry. The Fit recognizes when your key fob is near, and there’s no need to take it out of your pocket or purse to lock the door. Just walk up and pull the handle.
Push-Button Start: After you’ve opened the door to the Fit, you just need to sit behind the wheel, buckle up, and press the “Start” button to be on your way. The available push-button start feature knows when your keys are in the car and will rev to life.
Steering Wheel–Mounted Controls: Trying to use a touchscreen while driving could very easily distract you from driving. That doesn’t mean giving up control of your media, though. Honda’s steering wheel–mounted controls put the buttons right where you need them.
Center Console: Located directly between the two front seats, your center console is equipped with a USB port and a 12-volt power outlet for easy charging.
Heated Seating: Available heated front seats ensure that select Fit models are prepared for even the coldest months with two different levels of warmth to choose from.
Eco Assist: The 2017 Honda Fit is one of the most efficient options on the road, but even the most fuel-efficient engines can over-consume gas if the driver isn’t paying attention. Eco Assist coaches you on how to drive more efficiently, with bars on either side of the speedometer that turn green as your driving gets greener.
Staying connected is more than just a convenience for many drivers; it’s a priority. These 2017 Honda Fit technology features bridge the gap between your life and your car.
Bluetooth HandsFreeLink: One of the easiest ways to pair a smartphone to your vehicle uses Bluetooth, a wireless radio signal that lets you stream audio or make hands-free phone calls. Bluetooth HandsFreeLink is standard on the Honda Fit.
Display Audio Touchscreen: The Fit is available with a 7-inch Display Audio touchscreen, a high-res LCD that features swipe and pinch commands like a smartphone or tablet. Manage all of your media and vehicle settings with ease using the Display Audio system.
HondaLink: HondaLink points toward the future of the connected car, bringing your phone’s podcasts, music, digital radio, and social media feeds directly to the Fit’s stereo system. The HondaLink app (on Android and iOS) lets you check vehicle settings and schedule service appointments with just a few taps.
Navigation: Found on EX-L Navi trim levels, the Fit’s available satellite-linked navigation system features a touchscreen and voice commands so you can route yourself home from work or out for a night on the town. The navigation system’s traffic monitoring system lets you take the fastest route, ignoring delays and slowdowns.
Safety should be the top concern of all vehicles, yet some automakers still skimp on modern safety technologies like the rearview camera. These standard and available 2017 Honda Fit technology features are geared toward making your hatchback safer.
Daytime Running Lights: Headlights not only make the road ahead brighter, they make it easier for you to be seen. The same is true during the day, and the Fit’s standard daytime running lights switch on automatically whenever you start the car.
Vehicle Stability Assist: Whether oversteer, understeer, or loss of traction, Vehicle Stability Assist is able to sense when your wheels and your steering wheel are at odds, adjusting engine performance and brake force to regain control of the vehicle.
Multi-Angle Rearview Camera: The Fit’s standard rearview camera makes it easy to take advantage of the slim size and back into tight alleys and parking spaces. Just shift into reverse and the camera can display regular, top-down, and wide-angle views on the in-dash display screen.
Honda LaneWatch: The Fit’s other camera safety feature, LaneWatch uses a mirror-mounted camera on the passenger side to offer you increased blind-spot visibility. Found on EX and higher trims, you need only signal and the LaneWatch display shows up on your screen.
