2015 Honda Fit Hybrid Design
The exterior of the 2015 Honda Fit Hybrid has maintained the hatchback design that was on the predecessor and has thrown in a number of adjustment to ensure that it is able to give it that futuristic look as well as a bit of wind cutting ability. The windscreen is stretched to the front and the front grille has been reduced to allow more space for the very conspicuous headlights. On the side, it is has two creases with the upper running on the upper half and widening as it makes its way to the back and a less conspicuous one at the bottom thought definitely larger.
Interior Styling and Equipment
Interior of the 2015 Honda Fit Hybrid has been designed to offer comfort and functionality with the controls being put on a balanced and centralized dashboard for easy control. There’s a 5-inch touch screen for the infotainment system in the base models, while more equipped models come with a 7-inch LCD display. The finishing has been properly done to take away any effect of low cost finishing. Some of the features include: high-quality interior materials, four-speaker audio system, already mentioned HondaLink infotainment system, USB connectivity, etc…
Hybrid Engine and Fuel Efficiency
The 2015 Honda Fit Hybrid uses the new i-DCD hybrid system. The car is powered by a 1.5-liter I-4 engine that is mated to either a manual or the optional CVT transmission, and a 22 kW electric motor. This tag team is being able to put out up to 130 horsepower and 114 lb-ft of torque. This is quite impressive for a vehicle of its size and it is worth saying that it is an impressive performance. It has a top speed of 118 mph and can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 8.0 seconds. This might not be the best acceleration that you may have seen but you have to agree it is pretty neat for a car that is not built for speed, but rather for functionality and efficiency.
As you would expect from any hybrid, this one is particularly savvy when it comes to the amount of money that you will be spending at the pump. It is rated at 29 miles per gallon on the gasoline while in the city, and about 37 mpg when on the highway. That is a great budget. Its electric-only range is about 1.9 miles.
