Active Safety Features

At the forefront of safety and security technology are active safety features. These features are constantly working to make sure that drivers are in control and accident avoidance is top of mind. Check out a few of these active safety features here:

Honda Fit Vehicle Stability Assist

Vehicle Stability Assist – With the addition of extra traction control, this system works to ensure that drivers always remain in control regardless of the weather or road conditions that may lie ahead.

Honda Fit Fog Lights-Wheels

Tire Pressure Monitoring System – When your tire pressure is low, your vehicle isn’t operating at its peak performance, which is why the tire pressure monitoring system always lets you know when it’s time for maintenance.

Honda Fit Rearview Camera

Multi-Angle Rearview Camera – With the help of the three different views in this rearview camera, drivers can worry less about accidentally hitting something behind their vehicle when reversing.

Honda Fit Forward Collision Warning

Forward Collision Warning – If your vehicle starts to get too close to the one in front of it, this system will alert you and give you time to adequately apply the brakes to avoid an accident.

Honda Fit Collision Mitigation Braking System

Collision Mitigation Braking System – If the forward collision warning is unsuccessful in alerting you in time, this system will kick in and apply braking pressure to assist in reducing damage from or eliminating a collision.

Honda Fit Road Departure Mitigation System

Road Departure Mitigation System – To make sure you stay within the designated lane lines, this system will help to correct your steering if you start to leave the road.

Passive Safety Features

Beyond active safety features are passive safety features, which play a more behind-the-scenes role, preparing the vehicle to keep passengers safe in the event of an accident. Some of these hardworking features include:

  • ACE Body Structure – Otherwise known as Advanced Compatibility Engineering, this specialized body structure works to reduce the impact of a crash to keep passengers and other vehicles safer.
  • Comprehensive Airbag System – The 2018 Honda Fit’s airbag system consists of advanced front airbags, SmartVent front side airbags, and side curtain airbags with rollover sensor.
  • Front Passenger Seat Belt Reminder – To ensure front passengers always follow the first rule of the road, this reminder system will let them know to strap in.
