Smart Entry and Push Button Start/Stop
For the first time, the Fit EX and EX-L trims include the upscale convenience of the Smart Entry & Push Button Start/Stop system. The system simplifies approaching, entering and operating the Fit – especially when the driver is carrying items. Operating the system requires only that the driver has possession of the Smart Entry key.

Smart Entry allows the Fit EX and EX-L owner to gain access to the vehicle without having to use the remote key fob or the key. Instead, the remote has a unique digital identity that is recognized by the vehicle when the driver approaches. At this point, to enter the vehicle the driver simply pulls one of the front door handles while the remote in his or her possession. Similarly, pressing a soft-touch button located on the rear fascia opens the trunk.

Once the driver has opened the door and is seated, the Push Button Start system allows the Fit to be driven by pushing the START/STOP button positioned on the instrument panel. Powertrain operation and certain electrical functions are ended when the START/STOP button is pressed again at the conclusion of the drive.

After parking the vehicle, a touch of the soft-touch lock button on either front door handle locks all doors and trunk to secure the car. Alternatively, a press of the LOCK button on the Smart Entry remote will also simultaneously lock all the doors and trunk. The Smart Entry system will not allow the transmitter fob to be locked in the interior or the trunk.

Auto-Up/Down Driver and Passenger's Windows
The 2015 Fit has front and rear power windows with a one-touch auto-up/down driver's window. Illuminated controls allow for easy operation at night. Pressing a master switch on the driver's window control panel can deactivate the passengers' windows.

Power Locks
Power locks are standard with a customizable auto-locking feature. Remote entry is standard equipment on all Fits. The key design has an integrated transmitter in the handle with lock, unlock and panic buttons.

Engine Immobilizer
Complementing the remote entry system is a standard engine-immobilizer system. On vehicles without the Smart Entry feature, a special electronically coded key prevents the car from being started-even if a mechanical duplicate of the key is used. A transponder, built into the key, signals the immobilizer control unit that the key is genuine. If the car is hot-wired, or an unauthorized key is used, the engine will not start.

Clever Storage Solutions
The Fit provides an excellent level of storage utility for its compact size including the new center console storage and expandable left dash compartment. Numerous storage areas are sized to hold common personal items, and they're also conveniently located for easy use. They include a glove box, convenient door bins in front and now also in the rear, and a passenger-side seatback pocket. Beverage holders are located below the center stack and front and rear doors. A storage compartment to the left of the instrument panel has a tilting front panel that can accommodate smaller items, such as a smart phone, or expand to hold a beverage.

For the first time the Fit includes a center console with an armrest that folds up to reveal a storage bin that's big enough to hold an iPad® or similarly sized tablet. The bin includes a 12-volt power socket and, on EX and EX-L models, a USB port. The armrest lid has an indent to allow wires to pass through with the lid closed.
