Default Honda Fit gets outside, inside tweaks for 2012



Quote:
Honda Fit is getting a new look for 2012 -- inside and out. But it sounds like you'll have to squint to notice most of the diffrences.The Fit's Sport version will have a new design for the front grille and bumper. There will be black headlight bezels and a dark "machined surface" finish for the alloy wheels, instead of a painted finish. The entry-model Fit will get body-color outside mirrors, instead of black, and new hubcaps.

Inside, all Fit versions will see dark metallic dashboard components for a "unified color theme," instead of just being various shades of gray and black. Fit Sport receives additional chrome accents around instrument displays. All models receive newly designed console-mounted center beverage holders along with console ambient lighting. All models also receive added sound insulation measures in the floor, front fenders and A-pillars, plus thicker front corner-window glass, to help create a quieter, more-refined cabin environment.

Two new colors are available: Blue Raspberry Metallic and Orangeburst Metallic, which replace similar colors from the prior model year.

The powertrain is unchanged. Fit has a 1.5-liter, four-cylinder engine that produces 117 horsepower and is rated at 28 miles a gallon in the city and 35 mpg on the highway.

If they offered a limited run of a 150-180hp Fit Type R. they would sell out in the first week of pre-orders.

I don't get why Honda doesn't understand the draw the Type R name has.
