2019 Honda Fit Proves Cars are Here to Stay
There’s no question that people here in the US are buying more trucks, crossovers and SUVs, and fewer cars. In response, Ford announced last week that it will be discontinuing most of its cars here in the States. The problem for Ford will be that anyone looking for a budget vehicle won’t much from Blue Oval to choose from. Trucks and SUVs are generally quite expensive.
For about half the price of an F-150 Truck or a Mustang GT, you can get the 2019 Honda Fit. It won’t haul as much cargo or ass, but the Fit is a good-looking, practical everyday car. Honda wants you to know the 2019 model lands at dealers today. A base Fit LX with 6-speed manual is a scant $17,080 with destination fee and it gets 36 mpg on the highway.
A CVT will add about $850 to all models, and the Honda Sensing safety suite complete with auto high beams is offered on all models. Add those both to the base LX, and you are looking at $18,880. The Sport with a manual is $18,390, the EX is $19,050, and the EX-L with leather and Nav rings up at $22,410. All those prices include the $890 destination fee.
