The 2019 Honda Fit is a remarkable subcompact hatchback. With impressive road performance and a well-equipped and versatile cabin, the Honda Fit has a lot to offer West Michigan drivers. In fact, the Fit was ranked #1 in Subcompact Cars from U.S. News & World Report noting it has “the best combination overall quality and value in the class.” But the Fit is also deeply committed to safety, with passive and active safety features along with a list of driver-assistive technology features to help drivers stay safe on the road.
Safety in the Honda Fit starts with the innovative Advanced Compatibility Engineering Body Structure. It’s a unique design that utilizes a complex network of frame structures to absorb crash energy and distribute it away from passengers. It also minimizes the amount of force transferred to the other vehicle involved, keeping everyone safer.
The Honda Fit includes a long list of passive safety features, including seatbelts, airbags, and locks. These vital features might go on unnoticed at first but they’re ready for you when you need them.

The Honda Sensing suite of driver assistive technology features helps drivers stay safe with systems that warn, prevent, and mitigate incidents. Honda Sensing is available on every model of the Honda Fit when equipped with the CVT transmission.
Forward Collision Warning – Front sensors detect when an oncoming vehicle or other object is dangerously approaching the Fit and warns the driver to take swift action.
Lane Departure Warning – If the Fit begins to sway out of its lane on the highway, this system will warn the driver to correct the steering.
Collision Mitigation Braking System – When an impending collision is detected, this system can automatically engage the brakes to mitigate any impact.
Road Departure Mitigation System – If the Fit rolls over lane lines or road markings, this system can engage the brakes and steering to prevent it from going off the road.
Lane Keeping Assist System – If the Lane Departure Warning goes on unheeded, this system can nudge the steering to bring the Fitback into the center of the lane.
Adaptive Cruise Control – Drivers select their desired speed and distance interval with the vehicle ahead and this system keeps the Fit cruising while automatically adapting to changes in the flow of traffic.
With security features, the Fit keeps your belongings safe and locked away when you leave your vehicle parked. And with hands-free technology, a text messaging function, and voice recognition with the navigation system, drivers can keep their hands on the wheel at all times.
