Safety Features of the 2017 Honda Fit

  • 2017 Honda Fit

    For decades, auto manufacturers have vaunted the security offered by bulky SUVs, and drivers who prefer smaller, more versatile cars have often been left without compelling safety options. This year, the engineers at Honda wanted to level the playing field, so they’ve included a wide variety of powerful safety features on the 2017 Honda Fit! In this small yet satisfying subcompact, drivers near the Detroit metropolitan area can finally have all of the active and passive safety features they desire in an affordable, energetic, and reliable package.

Engineering You Can Trust: Passive Safety Features in the Fit

Many of today’s small cars lack a solid foundation that could ensure safety on the road, but the 2017 Honda Fit breaks this mold completely. Beginning with its Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure, every aspect of the 2017 Fit’s design has been optimized to offer a safer driving experience. Inside the cabin, drivers and passengers alike will be protected by three-point seatbelts and three sets of airbags. Of course, the Honda Fit also comes equipped with Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children, or LATCH, which make it easy to strap car seats in the right way. Each one of the passive safety features listed here comes standard in every Fit trim, and that means you won’t have to spend a fortune to drive with confidence! Whether you choose the Fit LX, EX, or EX-L trim, you’ll be buying a car you can depend on.

  • Advanced Compatibility Engineering: In the event of a collision, the 2017 Honda Fit’s Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure collapses at pre-determined points in order to direct energy away from passengers.
  • Three-Point Seatbelts with Automatic Tensioning: Every seatbelt in the 2017 Fit offers reliable three-point protection. In the front passenger and driver’s seats, these three-point seatbelts respond to your presence with automatic tensioning, guaranteed to ensure a safer ride.
  • Comprehensive Airbag Protection: Three sets of airbags provide security for up to five Fit passengers! SmartVent front side airbags complement the dual-stage, multiple threshold airbags that protect those seated in the front seats. Side curtain airbags, which are activated by a rollover sensor, also come standard in the 2017 Fit.
  • Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children: Drivers with children will be happy to know that the Honda Fit’s LATCH system is easy and convenient to use. Second-row outboard seats are equipped with lower anchors, and all second-row seats have access to lower tethers.

Stay in Control: Active Safety Features at Your Fingertips

The engineers at Honda know that great passive safety features are not, in themselves, sufficient to ensure safe driving, and that’s why they’ve equipped the 2017 Fit with some of the smartest active safety features available today! The braking technologies you’ll find in the Fit have been designed to give you more time to respond to obstacles on the road, so that you can take full advantage of this car’s responsiveness and maneuverability! Included in this suite of technologies are powerful features such as Vehicle Stability Assist and automatic Brake Assist! Even in the Fit’s baseline LX trim, a Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with guidelines comes standard! Those who desire the utility offered by dynamic guidelines can access them by upgrading to the Fit EX or EX-L. No matter which trim suits you best, you’ll get daytime running lights and a tire pressure monitoring system as standard features.


Honda Fit Vehicle Stability Assist

Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control: You can maintain control across a wide variety of dangerous terrain thanks to the 2017 Fit’s VSA technology. Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control enables the Fit to slow each of its wheels independently of the others, which means that it can handle difficult or sharp corners with ease!

Honda Fit Advanced Braking System

Brake Assist: The Fit’s onboard computer can help to protect you in emergencies with Brake Assist technology! This feature enables the Fit to apply the full force of its brakes more quickly than human response time would otherwise allow.

Honda Fit Rearview Camera

Rearview Camera with Guidelines: Not all collisions happen at high speeds! Protect against fender benders and the like by activating the Fit’s multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines. Dynamic guidelines, which respond to your vehicle’s movements, come standard in Fit EX and EX-L trims.

Honda Fit Daytime Running Lights

Daytime Running Lights: The 2017 Fit comes standard with Daytime Running Lights (DRL). Even during daylight hours, a set of high-performance headlights can make the difference between safe and dangerous driving.

Honda Fit Tire Pressure Monitoring System

Tire Pressure Monitoring System: It can be easy to forget how much a vehicle depends on healthy tires in order to perform at its best! Fit drivers will be empowered by a tire pressure monitoring system that provides complete and up-to-date information on tire health.
