Piedmont Honda in Anderson, South Carolina recommends checking out the Honda model that has been a best seller across the globe. From Japan to nations across Europe and the United States, Honda Fit is the company's top selling vehicle in its class.
The 2012 Fit, which hits dealerships this year, will receive updates to both its interior and exterior, though you'll have to look pretty hard to figure out what's different from previous versions. But that doesn't mean these tweaks are any less important than a full redesign, which Fit is scheduled for soon.
Don't worry - nothing is changing with that fuel efficient Fit powertrain. Its 1.5-liter, four-cylinder producing 117 horsepower will remain. It's also still EPA rated at 28 miles per gallon in the city, 35 on the highway.
Now for the upgrades: Fit Sport will have a slightly altered grille, and matte black coloring surrounding the headlights and blinkers. There will also be a darker, smooth machined surface to the alloy wheels. Fit Sport's side view mirrors have a similar machined look, different from the base model's, which will be offered in the same color as the car's body.
Speaking of colors, two new schemes will be available for 2012: Orange Burst Metallic and Blue Raspberry Metallic.
Keeping in line with this darker theme, interiors of the 2012 Fit Sport come with "dark metallic dashboard components for a unified color theme." All Fit models are going to include "added sound insulation measures" - as road noise can be an issue when commuting in major cities. Thicker front window glass will help create a quieter, steadier trip.1
