    I absolutely love my old FIT (2007). It's the best car I've ever owned. This new one seems even better.

    Too bad they keep messing up on the 6 speed stick. Honda knows exactly what they are doing...

    What's the point of adding an extra gear then gearing it the same as the old top gear. It's an economy car, not a sports car.
  5. PaleMelanesian

    PaleMelanesian Beat the System Staff Member

    Those gear ratios are actually slightly better. The early leaked numbers were wrong.
    2013 5th gear: 0.727
    2015 6th gear: 0.680 (and 5th is 0.727). Good!
    Final drive is the same. Tires are the same size. RPM at 60 drops from 2850 to ~2600 now - good. Could be better, but it's less bad.
    Edit: from Honda themselves, 6th IS the same as old 5th. :mad: http://hondanews.com/channels/honda...atures?e=4728588f-b141-446a-96bf-d9b92df4f0a5

    THANK YOU for measuring the cargo. That cargo floor is the same size as before. I wonder where they managed to lose 4 cubic feet? Maybe the seatback reclines more. It's not the loss I thought it was.

    There's a lot more standard equipment on the base model. Little things like map lights, and big things like Cruise Control and Bluetooth. I'm still waiting to hear of any suspension differences. If that's the same, I'd be happy with an LX plus a set of lightweight alloy wheels. I don't need or want much of what the upper trims add (moonroof - see my username, see my location).

    Prices - good. Base is only $100 more than before, for a better car with more standard equipment. EX-L is $1000 more than the old Sport Nav, but has leather which wasn't even optional before.

    Black interior? Bah. I live in Texas, so black gets HOT. I have kids, so black gets dirty.

    This answers some of my doubts, and in a good way. I may have to go and test drive. The interior looks MUCH improved, which was the biggest negative on the old one.

    Andrew and Jason , if you had this new Fit with 6MT , would you ever skip a gear ? Or are you at such low rpm/high load that it wouldn't work well ?
  8. PaleMelanesian

    PaleMelanesian Beat the System Staff Member

    I already skip 1st sometimes and start in 2nd, but otherwise no. To skip you have to rev the one gear higher and then bog the next one. Better to just move quickly through each one. I may skip 1st even more now that it's shorter. :p

    Even magazines don't seem to like the gearing.

    Front suspension has increased caster angle, for better self-centering. Should help reduce darty-ness on the highway and on-center feel.

    Added engine under-tray and body center under-tray.

    Man, I hope they build an EV version!

    It's the 4.61:1 final drive that is sinking the manual transmission.

    Hi Andrew:

    The short lead press kit and the final press kit released this morning are slightly different. I updated the latest numbers and the stick climbs once again beyond 2,800 RPM@60 mph. :(

    More caster was added so on-center feel and higher speed straight line stability has been improved. It is still very responsive given the short wheelbase but with less body roll and less "dartiness" if that is a word. The new EPS was tuned very well and other passing vehicles do not upset its direction as much as the current model.

    The safety and infotainment upgrades are a really big deal. The $60 SW NAVI while basic is good enough vs. the $1,000 to get the HD based on with XM/HD. Why XM was not included on a lower end trim is a question mark?

    Where Honda "cheaped" out was the mouse fur on egg carton headliner, Fresh and Recirc selector is a mechanical feeling unit, and the front seat track and wheel extension does not make it comfortable for 6-footers +. It has the rear seat room but the track stops short of totally comfortable with the short lower seat bottoms.

    I know you wanted those cargo area dimensions but Honda said not until the embargo was lifted at 02:00 AM PST this morning.

    The new Fit has more passenger volume than the Civic and other compacts which is due to more headroom more than front to back or side to side volume. Rear seats have a slight recline within the Magic Seat framework.

    IP, displays, and features are surprisingly good for a B-segment. I always liked the Accent/Rio interiors in this segment and the Fit passes them up with better Infotainment features and larger central display in both the LX (5") and EX (7") trims.

    The rear view camera has 3 different settings. Straight back, wide view back, and look down back. Really cool and thinking outside the box without going to an AroundView/SurroundView like MB/Nissan's more expensive systems.

    The more powerful 130 hp with 114 lb-ft engine mated to the shorter launch gear CVT does not strain like the 2013s 117 and 106 lb-ft. The CVT is well controlled until WOT where it turns back into … well, a CVT. ;) Good tip in performance. Some NVH intrusion when pushing the engine given the CVT action but it is less bothersome than the current gen.

    The 6-speed stick has the shortest throw I have ever experienced yet still is slick as any other. The stick is no taller than maybe 8 to 9 inches and feels more like a Prius toggle shifter than a std. stick shift. And they kept the weight down with all the new “stuff” by shortening its length yet still providing a larger passenger volume.

    Brakes feel ok. Not to aggressive or spongy but maybe a touch soft.

    About the weight. Honda stated they had quieted it down to segment leading levels with quite a bit of new insulation and underbody panels. While quieter, it is not a midsize like quiet I had hoped for.

    Regarding safety, the 2013 failed miserably in the IIHS SOL crash test, remember it was essentially designed in 2007/2008 for the 2009 MY. The IIHS SOL was not even a consideration back then. With all UHSS in the chassis (27% UHSS) adding rigidity, safety via ACE body structure is surely improved. Honda does not fail a crash test if they design for it./ The Fit was designed for it.

    An almost 20 mile run yielded the following. It was in the low 60’s until the final ½ mile with 4 long stop lights in downtown San Diego.

    A very relaxed CVT equipped EX drive.​

    All-in, Honda once again owns the B-segment with the best automobile. It was arguably the best before but aging and not price/content competitive. While still expensive, the LX received the engine and drivetrain upgrades, suspension upgrades, rear view camera, Bluetooth, 5” display, rear spoiler, auto headlights, and more passenger volume. $1,000 worth of “stuff” for an extra $100. In addition to all of those features, the EX received a Moonroof, proximity key, 7” display audio, and interior lighting for just $225 more than the comparable Fit Sport

    If only that damned 6-speed MT was broadened as 2,800 + at 60 is unacceptable while the CVT runs at a far more relaxed 1,800.

    And they will still sell every Fit they make and continue to own the segment.

    I guess if it ain't broke ( gearing) , don't fix it.

    Ill be enjoying my Prius C past all these low 30 mpg divers of the new Fit in my neck of the woods.

    Incredible that they're STILL botching the ratios on the (now 6) MT. What's equally incredible is that it now gets 37mpg hwy despite the ridiculous revs. Wonder how they pulled that off? Sure makes me wonder what it would be capable of if top gear could be more like 2000-2200 at 60, though.

    As Andrew said, the 28" fore-aft cargo floor measurement (thanks for doing that Wayne) is exactly the same as the old Fit. Which exceeds expectations, given the reduction in cargo volume and increase in passenger room. Still wonder where it's losing cargo space. Did they add a standard cargo cover and switch to the under-cover volume measurement? I'm not sure but I think EPA does this if the cargo cover is standard equipment, and uses the floor-to-ceiling measurement if it's optional. Yes, that would be stupid, but I've begun to suspect that's how they do it.

    Lets see how the next Mazda 2 coming soon does?

    I bet it will break 40mpg hwy?

    If they had start stop and I-Eloop it should be a killer none hybrid.

    About the same as the manual Accent and Note, which both have similar mass, larger engines, and (I think?) slightly higher drag coefficients. The Note even has similarly "ridiculous revs."

    Agree that the 4.62×.727 top gear is disappointing, if true. However, Honda's in business to make money, not to please a tiny minority, us.
  20. PaleMelanesian

    I don't think that's it. A cargo cover is still listed as an optional accessory. I think the rear window slopes forward slightly more ( but it's still among the most upright there is). That could count for one of the four missing cu ft. The rear suspension towers look taller, too.

    That makes the Mazda3 look mighty good. Equal city mpg, +3 highway, equal cargo width but +6 inches front-to-back at 34. It's also $3000 more, so makes me go hmmm.
