The 2018 Honda Fit Sport brings a livelier flare to an already fun to drive yet immensely practical sub-compact hatchback. After a total overhaul 3 years ago, the new Sport trim adds aero treatments like front splitter and rear diffuser.

The 1.5 liter 4-cylinder is still good for 130 horsepower. Retuned suspension dampers and more rigid steering amplify the steady ride and athletic attitude.

GARICK ZIKAN: “By now you probably realize we like to take matters into our own hands when it comes to changing gears. So we’re driving the 6-speed manual. There’s a good balance between the weight of the clutch and the throw of the shifter.”

A CVT is the other choice. Honda’s advanced safety and driver assistance technologies are now either optional or standard on all Fits.

The 2018 Honda Fit Sport is on sale now starting at just over $16,000.
