Honda Automobiles: 2015 Honda Fit – Powertrains

Overview In keeping with Honda’s mission, to provide both fuel efficiency and fun-to-drive at a high level, the 2015 Fit is powered by an all-new Earth Dreams Technology 1.5-liter engine paired with either a new six-speed manual transmission (6MT) or a new Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). A program of weight saving, friction reduction, technology application and clever engineering resulted in an 11 percent increase in horsepower to 130, and a 7.5 percent increase in torque to 114 lb-ft over the previous Fit’s engine. A similar approach produced transmissions that help provide quicker acceleration, smoother shifting and class-leading EPA fuel-economy ratings of 29/37/32 (city/highway/combined) 1 for manual transmission models, 33/41/36 for the LX trim with CVT and 32/38/35 for the EX and EX-L trims with CVT.
