    Expert Rating

    5.0 (Excellent)
    30 City / 37 Highway

    Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

    You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

    5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

    4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

    3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

    2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

    1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

    2016 Honda Fit OVERVIEW

    Known for its clever ways of handling cargo, the Fit offers as much interior room as you could hope for in a subcompact hatchback. And yet it remains a top choice for efficiency and sheer affordability, two virtues not usually associated with spaciousness.

    What's new for 2016

    Redesigned just last year, the Fit continues with minimal changes.

    Choosing Your Honda Fit

    Believe it or not, the Fit offers more rear legroom than Honda's midsize Accord. That makes it practically the only subcompact on the market capable of family duty. The seat folds down for a class-leading 53 cubic feet of cargo space, and can also flip backward, leaving a deep storage well in its place for things that need to remain upright. The passenger seat also folds down, allowing you to carry long items (up to 8 feet!) that would normally require a roof rack.

    Every Fit is powered by a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine good for 130 horsepower. With the standard six-speed manual transmission, the Fit achieves 32 mpg in combined driving. Opt for the continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT), and you're looking at an exceptional 35 mpg combined.

    As before, the Fit is offered in four trim levels:


    Comes with all the expected standard equipment for this class, plus automatic headlamps, a rearview camera, and a display audio system with Bluetooth connectivity. The LX's smallish 15-inch wheels boost efficiency to 36 mpg combined when outfitted with the optional CVT.


    Adds a sunroof, keyless ignition, blind spot monitoring, and an upgraded sound system with Internet radio and integrated smartphone apps. The EX rolls on 16-inch alloy wheels.


    Gets the CVT as standard, plus heated mirrors and leather interior with heated front seats.

    EX-L with Navi

    Tops off the Fit with a navigation system as well as HD and satellite radio.

    There are no individual options for the Fit beyond the usual dealer-installed accessories.

    CarsDirect Tip

    Upgrading to the well-behaved CVT (around $800) is a no-brainer in light of the extra 3-4 mpg it provides. Everything else is simply a matter
