A few days ago, we also found figure of a new Fit in latest batch of Ministry of Industry and Information Technology's listings, and this new car will also be subject to an annual minor facelift. has not changed much, but according to current up-to-date information, new car product optimization in future will mainly focus on interior of car.
Like current model, new Fit will continue to offer two different appearance designs, a SPORT version and a CROSSTAR version, from which consumers can choose.
Let's take a look at SPORT version first. The overall shape of new car has not changed much. The whole car is built in a sports style, and paint materials are added in many places, such as front bumper and rear bumper. And use of black mesh air intake grille and through-type air intake grille at bottom, etc., such design is still very popular among young consumers.
The shape of tail has also remained unchanged, but taillights of new car have also been blackened, which may also improve feeling of movement a little.
As for CROSSTAR version, it emphasizes cross-border attributes of new car. For example, new car's front and rear bezels are more rigidly designed, and wide skid plate also makes it look wilder. , which makes new car look like a SPORT. The versions are completely different.
Next, let's look at different places. As mentioned in introductory article, changes to Fit this time around are mostly focused on interior of car and power system.
According to latest information, this time Fit CROSSTAR version will be equipped with magic seats as standard, and top models of SPORT version will also be equipped with magic seats. This is also good for consumers. On current model, this configuration is neutered to SPORT version, and this is what consumers complain about most. In addition, new car will also have a new color scheme for consumers to choose from.
Another change is food system. The new Fit will also feature a 1.5-liter naturally aspirated engine, codenamed L15CC, which is still mated to a CVT transmission. Obviously, this time Fit will be replaced by New Model. The engine is designed to meet latest National VI B emission standards, and compared to current L15BU engine, its power parameters are also reduced. The maximum engine power is 91 kW (the current model is 96 kW).
Relying on excellent all-round power, Guangqi Honda Fit has always been preferred model for many young consumers, and this generation of new cars also won favor of many consumers at beginning of its launch, but it can be said that due to country's new energy field and strong growth of domestic brands, share of domestic market of small cars has declined very seriously in recent years, and now there are only a few models that are struggling to maintain, although Fit is still among best-selling products, but its popularity continues to fall.According to latest data In terms of sales, only 4,749 new vehicles were launched last December, a far cry from glory days of past.
Furthermore, cautious friends may also find that, under pressure of new energy products, many joint venture brands have decided to cut prices to secure sales, and new Fit's so-called facelift did not come with any surprises. if future does not show more sincerity at price level, I believe that life will become more difficult.
