That's the starting tab for the Fit LX with manual transmission. The better equipped Fit EX with the manual transmission is priced from $18,735, including the destination charge. And a CVT automatic transmission will cost an additional $800 on either trim level.
Also available are the Fit EX-L, priced from $21,100, and the EX-L with navigation, starting at $22,100, both including the destination fee.
Standard on the moderately updated 2017 Fit are such features as auto on-off headlights, LED brake lights, Bluetooth and a center console with armrest.
Upgrades include a moonroof, push-button start, heated leather seats and a 7-inch touchscreen display with the latest version of HondaLink connectivity.
All Fit models are powered by a 1.5-liter four-cylinder VTEC engine that produces 130 horsepower and 114 pound-feet of torque.
Standard safety features include traction control, front side airbags, side curtain airbags, a rearview camera and active head restraints. Also standard on the EX trim level and above is the LaneWatch blind-spot monitoring system, which features a camera in the passenger-side mirror housing that provides a view of the blind spot when the right turn signal is engaged.
The Fit LX with CVT automatic transmission is EPA-rated at 33 mpg in city driving and 36 mpg on the highway, while the same model with the manual trans is rated at 29 mpg city and 32 mpg highway. The EX model with the CVT transmission gets rated at 32 mpg city and 34 mpg highway.
Edmunds says: Shoppers in the market for a well-equipped subcompact will want to visit their local Honda dealer to check out the 2017 Fit.
