2015 Honda Fit
Probably the most important green car to debut in Detroit will be the all-new 2015 Honda Fit, the latest generation of Honda's five-door subcompact hatchback. An important car globally for Honda, the new Fit has already gone on sale in Japan, where the majority of its sales are the Fit Hybrid version that Honda isn't currently planning to sell in the United States.
The latest Fit, along with a four-door sedan model and also a subcompact crossover with the same underpinnings, will be built at a Honda plant in Mexico. That should let Honda make more money on its smallest volume line.
The Fit competes with the Chevrolet Sonic, Ford Fiesta, Hyundai Accent, Kia Rio, Nissan Versa, and Toyota Yaris in the subcompact class. The outgoing 2013 model (there is no 2014 Fit) remains the most versatile and flexible model in the class, leading to high hopes for its successor.
