With the ability to pack more people and cargo into this car compared to many other compact cars on the market, the Honda Fit name is, well, fitting.

If you are looking to buy small, there is no better car on the market. With a strong value and a subcompact shape, it is easily one of the most refined miniature automobiles that are on the road today. 

A Brief History of the Honda Fit

The Honda Fit made its grand debut in Japan back in 2001, though it was marketed as the Honda Jazz. The subcompact Honda Fit finally arrived in the United States during the 2007 model year.

Getting Fit With Technology and Performance

The 2019 Honda Fit comes with a direct-injected four-cylinder engine with the choice between a six-speed manual transmission or continuously variable transmission. While the CVT version brings the horsepower down to 128, it is much easier to drive. One of the best things about the car is the fuel economy, which gives drivers a 40-mpg highway rating.

The interior is surprisingly spacious, as the Honda Fit has the largest cabin in its class. The backseat has almost as much legroom as other full-size sedans on the market. All Fit models come complete with Bluetooth audio, a USB port, a backup camera, and audio controls on the steering wheel. The Fit also comes with 7.0” touchscreen infotainment system above the LX trim, which uses Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Some of the available driver-assistance features include automated emergency braking, lane-departure warning, and adaptive cruise control.

The car received a facelift in 2004 with an upgraded front fascia, as well as upgraded side skirts, bumpers, front lights, rear lights, and side mirrors.

  • Third Generation Honda Fit (2014-Present)

The third-generation Honda Fit features a more angular design with larger 16” rims, sleeker look, and more interior space. With that said, the car is also a bit shorter than its predecessor. Bluetooth connectivity, an expanded rear-view driver’s mirror, and a rear-view camera, were also added on. By 2017, the car received a Solid Wing Face headlight design and an updated grille. The new car also utilizes a 1.5L i-VTEC engine with 130 horsepower.
