“Four dimensions of comfort” that enable better support for people’s daily lives:









Comfortable view: The all-new Honda Fit features a front pillar with a cross-sectional structure that is different from previous generations of Honda Fit and yet realizes a structure which facilitates impact energy to flow to the vehicle body in the event of a collision. While ensuring collision safety performance without a settlement, this newly-designed front pillar realizes overwhelmingly wide and superior frontal visibility compared to that of previous Honda Fit models.





Moreover, the instrument panel features a flat-topped design which emphasizes horizontal and verticle lines, and windshield wipers are positioned to be barely visible from inside the cabin, which also enhances a pleasant view while driving.





Seating comfort: As for the front seats, the all-new Honda Fit will be the 1st Honda model to feature a new-generation body stabilizing seat that Honda developed while envisioning application for its high-class sedan car models. The planar support structure of the seat stabilizes the body and makes long driving less tiring and enables the user to enjoy the soft feeling of the seat.





The rear seats of the all-new Honda Fit continue to feature seat arrangements as versatile as that of the previous generation Honda Fit and realize seat comfort equivalent to high-class sedan models by adopting a larger and thicker seat pad which offers stress-free seating even for adult passengers.





Ride comfort: Equipped with Honda Motor’s new, more compact 2-motor hybrid system, the all-new Fit will drive smoothly by an electric motor for virtually all situations of everyday driving and realize outstanding environmental performance as well as excellent ride comfort-ness with powerful acceleration and comfortable driving.





Usability: While maintaining the spacious cabin from previous generations of Honda Fit, the all-new Honda Fit features enhanced usability which supports people’s mobility, including a stress-free layout of storage areas that ensure comfort for all occupants and driver during everyday driving as well as over long-distances.
