Default Why Honda of America won't fit 2014 Fit models with start/stop

From AB




One of the most recent yet notable additions to the modern vehicle's
growing suite of fuel-saving technologies is the humble start-stop
system. It's rather simple - when the vehicle is stopped, the engine
shuts off. It then fires back up when the driver starts to take his
foot off the brake or step on the clutch. For one of the most
important fuel sippers of the year, though, start-stop tech is a
no-go.

Honda will not be offering the system on the North American-spec,
non-hybrid Fit despite it being a standard item on both the hybrid
(pictured above) and gas-only Japanese domestic models. According to
Honda, it's ostensibly due to the momentary lag, that occurs when the
gas engine re-fires and power is available. The start-stop-equipped
Fits "will lose at stoplights to V6s," Nobuhiko Shishido,
the lead powertrain engineer for the Fit, told Automotive News. This
is just an observation on our part, but unless the new Fit turns up
with dramatically more than the current car's 117 horsepower, it'll
"lose at stoplights" regardless of whatever fuel-saving
features are fitted.
