Honda has long partnered with Apple when it comes to supporting the CarPlay car system, and now the manufacturer
As reported 9to5Mac 2018 Honda Fit Sport will be officiallySupport Apple CarPlay with a 7-inch built-in touch screen display. Prior to that, the Honda Fit lineup featured a touch screen in the dashboard, but so far it has not supported Apple CarPlay (or Android Auto, for that matter) in cars prior to this model.
To take advantage of CarPlay, you, as usual, need to get special equipment:

Fit Sport refers to the LX withexclusive interior with black embroidered fabric and orange stitching, leather steering wheel and gear knob, as well as shift paddles on models with continuously variable transmission (CVT). In addition, the Sport has premium features that can be found on EX trim levels, including a 7-inch touchscreen with Honda audio interface that supports Apple CarPlay ™ and Android Auto ™ and a six-speaker audio system with 180 watts. ”
It is also worth noting that, despite the fact thatthe CarPlay wireless system is formally supported; Honda Fit Sport 2018 does not support it. In this regard, you will have to connect your iPhone through a Lightning cable to make CarPlay work.
The latest Honda model with CarPlay support was the 2017 Clarity EV Sedan, about which was announced earlier this month. You can find the list of cars listed by the car manufacturer supporting CarPlay on the official Apple website.
