The 2015 Honda Fit was first shown at the Detroit Auto Show in Jan. 2014. Now you can see it for yourself at the Cleveland Auto Show. The Fit is a complete redesign with a sleek, modern look and more cargo space than ever.
So we wanted to know for ourselves if the Fit was improved. When we climbed in and out of the car on the floor of Cleveland Auto Show, we must say that the new Fit is a big step up for the brand.

First thing we noticed was the new styling. The Fit has a more, sleek aggressive look. The all-new front fascia and redesigned grille closer resembles the rest of the lineup. The folded grille and new styling on the fog lights is also a major upgrade.
We also loved the new wheels.
As we climbed through the Fit, the side molding adds a level of quality styling that was missing in the current model. Here we also get a better look at those new rims. Out back the Fit shines with new new lines on the side fenders, and new vents underneath the trunk.
We couldn’t help but notice the new Fit was slightly shorter, but a little wider. You’ll get 4.9 more cubic feet of storage, and 4.8 cubic feet of legroom. With the Honda-exclusive Magic Seat offering multiple configurable seating positions, the Fit provides an unrivaled 52.7 cubic feet of cargo space when the second row seats are folded flat. With an overall height of 60 inches, the Fit allows for easy loading of items into the rear cargo and ingress/egress for passengers.
Features of the 2015 Fit include standard features include Bluetooth, rearview camera, and Expanded View Driver’s Mirror. For those looking for more upgrades, Honda says you can add heated side mirrors, LaneWatch, and touchscreen center console. For the first time, the new Fit will come with leather seats.
The Fit goes for sale this spring.
