Safety in the Fit starts with its innovative design structure. Honda’s Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure utilizes a complex network of frame structures to absorb crash energy and distribute it away from the occupants inside the cabin. It also minimizes the amount of force transferred to the other vehicle involved, keeping everyone on the road safer.
The Honda Fit includes a number of passive safety features, including airbags, seatbelts, and child-proof locks to keep everyone safe on the road.
Performance meets safety with active safety features that ensure the Fit is performing at its best in different driving situations, including inclement weather. These features help the Fit maintain good tractive control with the road and come to a complete stop more quickly in an emergency braking situation. They also ensure that the Fit is clearly visible to other drivers with daytime running lights.
Every model of the Fit comes with a multi-angle rearview camera that allows drivers to check their surroundings before backing up so they can see objects in the road that are too low to see using the mirrors alone. The camera includes three angles, each offering an optimal view for different driving situations.
Honda Sensing is a suite of driver-assistive technology that helps drivers stay safe. The package comes available on the LX and Sport trims when equipped with the CVT transmission, and is standard on both the EX and EX-L models.
The EX and EX-L allow drivers to see more with Honda Lane Watch. The system utilizes a small camera mounted on the passenger’s side mirror to display a live video feed of activity in the driver’s blind spot when a right lane change is signaled. The video is displayed on the 7-inch touchscreen display and allows drivers to see up to four times more than using the mirrors alone.
As drivers explore all four trim levels there are even more safety features to note, from security systems to hands-free technology that allows drivers to access devices without taking their hands off the wheel and their eyes off the road.
