2018 Honda Fit offers subtle makeover, new Sport trim

It also gains the Honda Sensing safety pack as an option

Honda has given its entry-level model a subtle nip-and-tuck for the 2018 model year, making styling, trim, and equipment changes.

The 2018 Honda Fit (sold as the Jazz in Europe and other markets) features updated styling at the front and rear, but the changes are so subtle you're unlikely to spot them.

There's an updated two-piece chrome and piano black grille sporting a larger brand logo, and the smoked headlights now blend into the side edges of the upper fascia's wing. Other changes taking place at the front are the addition of a full-width splitter along with more angular fog lights pods.

At the rear, the bumper is redesigned too, gaining a full-width character line in piano black and a splitter-shaped lower section. Finally, the taillights now feature a new light signature.

Another change for the 2018 Fit is the addition of a new Sport trim, which bridges the gap between the LX and EX grades. It adds a more aggressive and sporty appearance thanks to a front splitter highlighted in bright orange, more pronounced side sills, as well as a pseudo-diffuser and chrome exhaust finisher at the rear. Also unique to the 2018 Fit Sport are the black 16-inch alloys and Sport badge.

The 2018 Honda Fit gains two new colors: Helios Yellow Pearl (replacing Mystic Yellow) and Orange Fury.

Finally, the subcompact is now available with the Honda Sensing suite of safety and driver assistive technologies, making it the only vehicle in the segment to offer a comprehensive pack of assistance features.

Available on LX and Sport trims and standard on EX and above, Honda Sensing includes Adaptive Cruise Control, Collision Mitigation Brake Braking System, Lane Keeping Assist System incorporating Lane Departure Warning and Road Departure Mitigation incorporating Road Departure Warning.
