There’s a lot more competition in the sub-compact segment than there used to be, and yet the Honda Fit continues on as a stand-out model. Those looking to see what Honda will deliver for the next generation of the car will have to wait a little longer. In the mean time, the Fit has received a list of small upgrades and additions for the 2012 model year.
The Fit’s stand-out style gets a mild update for 2012. Base models get paint-matched mirrors and a new hubcap design while Sport models get a new grille, black headlight bezels and a new shade of silver for the 16-inch wheels. Fit Sport models also gain standard equipment with the addition of steering wheel audio controls, while Bluetooth hands free controls now come on models equipped with the optional navigation system.
There are no changes under the hood with the 1.5-liter 4-cylinder still making 117-hp and 106 lb-ft of torque.
