2015 Honda Fit Video Transcript
Well, here's the new Honda Fit, one that's new in a lot of ways starting with a very obvious and substantial redesign more than they've ever done to the Fit before of all that's been selling in the US market. Now to my eye I kind of missed the clean chiselly looks it had before. It looks a little more fancy on purpose and maybe kind of suburban but I bet it'll sell better as a result. Dimensionally it's longer between the wheels but shorter whisker to tail. Translated what that means is you've got a car that's a little bit shorter, a little easier to drive and maneuver with more room where you sit and the same cargo space which Honda says is really good for its class. The last Fit was kind of this technology wasteland. In fact it didn't even have Bluetooth hands-free standard, kind of the last car not made in a totalitarian country that didn't. Now it is standard along with a backup camera. Optionally you can get a 7-inch LCD head unit for all your media and infotainment. You can get lane watch this camera on the right mirror that looks back as you make a right turn keeping you apart from militant cyclists and out back LED tail lights give this car a more modern and more upscale look as well for about the same money. Now under the covers Honda is moving this vehicle from being produced in Japan. They're being built in Mexico. That's gonna let them get a lot more capacity which they hope they'll need. It's also gonna help them with the bane of Japanese automakers lately that you get an exchange rate. This guy hits the market spring of 2014.
