Honda announced that its Fit 2009 will make its North American introduction at the New York Auto Show next month. The brand new Fit â€” which bowed last October in Japan â€” will build on the ultimate-generation`s sporty nature with high efficiency.
For 2009, Honda stretched the wheelbase of the Fit by 2 inches and moved forward the A-pillars, adding to the interior space of the car. The added area allows the Ultra Seats which can be moved in four different configurations â€” that includes Refresh mode - to turns the interior of the Fit into a bed.
Power for Japanese-spec Fit model is sourced from a 1.3L or an optional one of 1.5L engine, though it`s expected that just the 1.5L will reach the U.S. So, new for 2009, customers can choose now between front and all-wheel drive. The transmission choices for the all-new Fit will be including a five-speed automatic, five-speed manual plus a CVT automatic.
