The Honda Fit has been one of the most successful subcompacts in the U.S. market. Its size, standard list of features and sizable cargo area make it feel like a substantial car for shoppers in the segment. For 2015, the Fit has been completely redesigned, but the prices have gone up minimally compared to the outgoing model.
The starting price of the base LX model is $16,315, including a destination charge. That's with a six-speed manual transmission. Adding a continuously variable automatic transmission ratchets up the price by $800 to $17,115. Both prices are $100 more than the 2013 Honda Fit base model with a manual or an automatic. Honda points out that added features for the 2015 model at this trim level — a standard backup camera, spoiler, center armrest, automatic headlights and more — outweigh the price change.
The 2014 Toyota Yaris four-door starts at $16,265, including destination, but comes with a four-speed automatic transmission standard. The 2014 Nissan Versa Note has less standard equipment than the Fit, but its starting price is considerably less at $14,800, including destination with a five-speed manual transmission.
The Fit trim lineup goes from the base LX to EX to EX-L and EX-L with Navigation.
The 2015 EX is priced at $18,225 for the manual transmission and $19,025 for the CVT. Both prices are $225 more than the outgoing version of the EX.
The 2015 EX-L is priced at $20,590 equipped with the CVT standard.
The 2015 Fit EX-L with Navigation is priced at $21,590 with the CVT standard. All prices include destination.
Honda's new 7-inch Display Audio multimedia system, which we tested in March, is standard on EX models and higher.
