Overview of the Honda Fit

Learn about the Honda Fit

Summary

The Honda Fit, named for its compact design, is a comfortable, versatile choice for urban drivers. Its fuel economy is excellent: 8 L/100 km in the city and 6.4 L/100 km on the highway. The Fit is praised for adopting innovative technology early on. For example, keeping track of fuel in 2011+ models with the fuel consumption display. The Fit's safety features are also high-tech so you're safe on the road and in your lane. Although the acceleration is dampened slightly by the CVT transmission, the car handles well on city roads and is easy to park.

Safety

The Honda Fit is well equipped with safety technology across all generations. A unique feature is the anti-whiplash head restraint—available from 2009 models—helpful in case of impact from behind. Other safety details in newer models as of 2017 include adaptive cruise control and lane departure warning to keep you driving straight.

Standard safety feature across all model years include:

  • Anti-lock braking system (ABS), reducing lock-up during hard-braking
  • Front- and side-impact airbags on both sides
  • On/off airbag switch on the passenger side for underweight passengers
  • Daytime running lights
  • Child safety locks 

Electronic Stability Control to reduce the risk of skidding became optional on 2009 and 2010 trims and standard on 2011+ base trims.

Interior

Most generations and trims of the Honda Fit feature the important interior amenities drivers look out for, such as:

  • Standard power windows and heated front seats
  • Air conditioning, which is standard in LX trims and higher in 2009+ models and standard for base trims in 2011+ models

Technology

The Fit is well-equipped technologically. 2011 trims include a CD/MP3 stereo with auxiliary input. Apple/Android Bluetooth integration was an innovative technology for its early introduction in the 2010 Sport, 2014 LX, and then standard for all 2016+ trims. The 2011 Sport saw the Fit’s first USB jack, which became standard across all trims in the years after.

The multimedia centre was introduced in 2015, early in the game for touchscreens in vehicles. As such, the earlier models aren't the most user-friendly. However, the touchscreen's functionality has improved with each generation. A rear backup camera also became standard in 2015. In the same year, GPS navigation was added to all EX-L models and higher and became optional for all trim levels in 2017.

Space

The Honda Fit is compact—an advantage when parking in tight spaces—yet it's surprisingly spacious inside. Although there is less headroom in the rear seats, there is significant legroom in all seats, comparable even to some full-size sedans. 

Trunk space is average at 16.6 cubic feet. However, the rear seats flatten, extending cargo space to 52.7 cubic feet. 

Comfort

The Fit was designed for everyday use, so the suspension is a bit stiff. This can be a bit disadvantageous on rough roads but adds control and comfort for urban driving. 

The standard tilt and telescopic steering wheel, which adjusts to your liking, adds to the comfort of the Fit. The steering wheel also available in leather-wrapping, a feature that is standard in the Sport trim. 

Frequently asked questions about the Honda Fit

The Honda Fit's manual transmission vehicles can be flat towed, while Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) models cannot be flat towed.

Honda Fits in generations 2007 and onwards feature cruise control, maintaining the vehicle's speed without the need to keep your foot on the accelerator.

The Honda Fit is available with a 1.5 L VTEC engine in either manual or CVT automatic transmission, offering higher performance and better fuel economy for drivers.

While manual Honda Fit models come solely in front wheel drive, automatic CVT Honda Fits come with standard four-wheel drive.

Currently, the Honda Fit is made in Mexico. From 2003 to 2014, the Fit was made in Brazil, and prior to 2003, they were manufactured in Japan.
