Honda Fit e:HEV Facelifted for 2024
Honda Fit e:HEV Facelifted for 2024
2023-12-14 EST 02:30:23

The Honda Fit e:HEV facelift has arrived in South Africa. Here’s a look at how much it costs and what has been updated.

The Honda Fit e:HEV is the brand’s most frugal model offered locally in South Africa. Combining the legendary practicality with an updated and more powerful engine, the Honda Fit e:HEV should make a compelling argument for a modern and economical city slicker.

The Fit e:HEV features a sportier look, with revised bumpers to differentiate it from the other models in the range.

The real change can be found under the bonnet where there’s an increase of 10 kW to the overall power output. It now stands at 90 kW and 253 Nm for total output from a 1.5-litre electrically-assisted naturally-aspirated petrol 4-cylinder motor, with the engine power increased to 78 kW from 72 kW. Impressively, the hybrid system still claims CO2 emissions of 88 g/km and a combined fuel economy figure of just 3.7 L/100 km.

There has been a specification increase too, with the Honda Fit e:HEV gaining a wireless smartphone charger on top of the already comprehensive comfort and tech features package. As a reminder, the flagship Fit features heated seats, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto connectivity, digital instrument cluster, fast charging USB ports, and a host of semi-autonomous safety features such as radar-guided cruise control and lane-keeping assist.

How much does the facelifted Honda Fit e:HEV cost in South Africa?

The Fit e:HEV is sold with a 5-year / 200 000km warranty, a 4-year / 60 000km service plan as well as an additional extended warranty of 8-year / 200 000km covering the lithium-ion battery and other related components of the hybrid system.
