Honda Fit: Spaciousness and Fun in a Subcompact Hatchback
The Honda Fit is a subcompact hatchback that is perfect for driving in the city or anywhere you don’t want to have to worry about fitting into that tight parking space or down that narrow side street. The Fit may be a subcompact, but its interior is surprisingly spacious, with excellent visibility and a design that makes it feel open and airy. The Fit not only has room for five people, but the rear seat is a Magic Seat. This 60/40 split and folding seat lets you fold the seatbacks down or fold the seats themselves upright to adjust the cargo space with ease and make the most of the Fit’s versatility.
The Honda Fit has entry-level pricing that puts it within reach of the average driver. At the same time, it is available with an incredible range of features that will make you forget how little you paid. Enjoy heated front seats or leather trimming on the seats, steering wheel, and shift knob. As a subcompact, the Fit is also highly efficient.
Discover What’s New on the 2017 Honda Fit
The 2017 Honda Fit will be incredibly familiar to those who already know this hatchback, as Honda only made minor changes to this subcompact for the current model year. You will notice, however, that the Lunar Silver Metallic exterior color is gone. Now, you will have to choose Alabaster Silver Metallic instead if you want a similar shade. Other than that minor adjustment, the Fit has the same three trim levels, the same 1.5-liter 4-cylinder engine, and familiar standard features that include Bluetooth, automatic headlights, and a spacious center console. It continues to offer heated leather upholstery, the 7-inch touchscreen, and a power moonroof.
Explore the Honda Fit History
Since the 2017 Honda Fit is nearly identical to other recent model years, you need to take a look further back to get a better feel for how this model has evolved over the years. The first Fit arrived in America in 2007 after it had already been sold in Japan for several years to resounding success. The original Fit was offered in a Base or Sport trim and came with the Magic Seat with its ability to fold multiple ways right from the start. The original 109-horsepower 1.5-liter 4-cylinder engine was more than powerful enough for this subcompact and could work with a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed automatic. The Sport trim even got paddle shifters and all models came with a CD player and air conditioning. Even this first Fit offered leather on the steering wheel, keyless entry, cruise control, and an auxiliary audio jack.
For 2008, the Honda Fit got a tire pressure monitor and several new colors while the Sport became even sportier in styling. Honda brought the Fit into its second generation for the 2009 model year. This generation included a growth of 2 inches in width and 4 inches in length, gaining 15-inch wheels and getting 117 horsepower. The Magic Seat also saw adjustments that let the Fit hold 57 cubic feet of cargo. For this generation, The Fit came standard with a CD player, auxiliary audio jack, tilt-and-telescoping steering column, keyless entry, full power accessories, air conditioning, and antilock brakes. New options included touchscreen navigation, USB connectivity, and an antiskid system. The current third generation made its debut in the form of the 2015 Honda Fit, including a new drivetrain, body, and cabin, becoming more modern and angular in appearance.
