Some of the best advancements in auto tech have been ones that make driving just a bit more convenient, and the 2017 Honda Fit technology features make your life behind the wheel a little more convenient, a little more comfortable:
Smart Entry: This Fit feature is available on upper trim levels and lets the car sense when your keys are near so you can lock or unlock the doors without ever needing to dig into your pocket or purse for the keys.
Push-Button Start: The Fit’s available push-button start senses when your key fob is in the vehicle and lets you rev up the engine with just the push of that “start” button.
Steering Wheel–Mounted Controls: Manage your music, control hands-free phone calls, adjust cruising speeds, and more without ever taking your hands away from the wheel.
Center Console: Never hunt for your phone or wallet again with the Fit’s conveniently positioned center console, complete with 12-volt power outlet and USB charging and connectivity port.
Heated Seating: Illinois winters can get pretty chilly, and the Fit’s available heated front seating offers two different settings to keep you comfortable behind the wheel.
Eco Assist: The Fit’s efficient engine can only do so much, but Eco Assist is a convenient little feature that has colored bars around the speedometer to help coach you to drive more efficiently.
Whether driving the entry-level LX or the top-of-the-line EX-L Navi, these 2017 Honda Fit technology features make it easy to stay connected and entertained in Central Illinois:
Bluetooth HandsFreeLink: Connect your smartphone up with the Fit to make hands-free phone calls, stream audio from your phone or Internet radio, and more.
Display Audio Touchscreen: EX and higher models feature a 7-inch Display Audio touchscreen interface that uses the same swipe and pinch controls as a smartphone to manage your media, vehicle, and infotainment settings.
USB and HDMI: Whether it’s USB for audio or HDMI for video, the Display Audio touchscreen can take multiple inputs and keep people entertained while out and about in the Honda Fit.
HondaLink: The HondaLink telematics system bridges the gap between smartphone and car by making your media easily accessible through the Aha app; it can even read your social media feeds to you. Just download the app and your phone is ready for the Fit EX and higher models.
Navigation: Satellite-linked navigation is found on EX-L Navi models, routing you to your destination with turn-by-turn directions, offering points of interest along the way, and routing you around potential delays.
Before connectivity and convenience features were considered, Honda outfitted the 2017 Honda Fit technology features with advanced safety tech like this:
Daytime Running Lights: Each Fit features daytime running lights as a standard feature, giving the vehicle enhanced visibility so it is more likely for other drivers to notice it. These lights turn on automatically, just one aspect of the Fit protecting you whenever you’re on the road.
Vehicle Stability Assist: This feature is able to detect when the wheel position doesn’t match up with the steering wheel, sensing losses of traction and adjusting brake pressure and engine power to bring the vehicle back under your control.
Multi-Angle Rearview Camera: Standard on the Fit, a multi-angle rearview camera offers peace of mind when in reverse, displaying what’s behind the car on the in-dash screen, complete with guidelines. Just press a button to switch from one view to the next, to the next.
Honda LaneWatch: Found on EX and higher trim levels, this safety feature uses a camera mounted on the passenger-side mirror to give you a look at the passenger-side blind spot before changing lanes, showing almost four times more than what the mirror can display alone.
