Overview

The Honda Fit doesn’t get nearly anything close to the attention bestowed upon the larger Civic, but this subcompact hatchback shouldn’t be easily dismissed either. Superior build quality, excellent cargo space, and a low price are three important reasons to consider Honda’s smallest car.

What's new for 2017

The 2017 Honda Fit is unchanged for 2017 except for one minor detail: Lunar Silver metallic replaces Alabaster Silver metallic among the eight available exterior paint colors.

Choosing Your Honda Fit

All 2017 Honda Fit models are powered by a 1.5-liter, four-cylinder engine making 130 horsepower and 114 pound-feet of torque. Two transmission choices are available: a six-speed manual or a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT).

Lightweight and thrifty, the 2017 Fit is rated by the EPA at 29 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway when equipped with the manual transmission. The more efficient powertrain combination for this front-wheel drive, five-passenger hatchback is the CVT. It is EPA-rated at 33 mpg in the city and 40 mpg on the highway.

All models are equipped with a second row “magic seat,” what provides four unique configurations for holding passengers and cargo.

Three standard trim levels are available.

Automotive Editor

The Fit takes many of Honda's automotive traditions – thoughtful design, clever engineering, a sense of driving satisfaction – and mixes them down into a small, economical and appealingly versatile form. Its compact dimensions enclose an impressive amount of interior space and it offers a level of refinement that is unusual in such an affordable vehicle.

Pricing and Equipment

The Fit lineup consists of three trim levels. The LX starts from $16,965 (all prices listed here include the $875 destination charge). Its standard equipment list includes Bluetooth connectivity and a rearview camera. The EX stickers at $18,875, and that increase pays for a number of features and upgrades such as:

  • Honda's LaneWatch blind-spot mitigation system
  • Touchscreen control for the infotainment system, which now includes Pandora compatibility
  • 16-inch alloy wheels
  • A moonroof
  • Keyless ignition

The EX-L weighs in at a $21,240 and adds heated side mirrors and heated leather front seats, while the steering wheel and shift knob are also wrapped in cowhide. The EX-L is also available with an expanded infotainment system that adds voice-operated navigation and SiriusXM and HD radio receivers. Options on any Fit are limited to dealer-installed accessories

All Fits use a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine. A six-speed manual or a continuously-variable transmission sends power to the front wheels. The CVT is standard on the EX-L and optional on the LX and EX. Save for the wheels (15-inch steel wheels with covers on the LX, 16-inch alloys on the EX and EX-L) mechanical specifications are identical among the three trim levels. Manual-transmission Fits earn EPA mileage estimates of 29 mpg city, 36 highway, and 32 combined. Opting for the CVT boosts estimates to 33/40/36 mpg.

Performance Pros

Honda Fit
  • Compared to its well-respected predecessor the current-generation Fit is a bit quicker, quieter, and smoother.
  • Both transmissions are excellent. The six-speed is quick and direct, and the CVT is very well-calibrated to minimize flat spots and lag.
  • To say the Fit gets some of the best safety ratings in its size class sells the car short – the Fit's crash scores are among the best on the market regardless of vehicle size.

Performance Cons

  • Compared to its predecessor the current-generation Fit is less fun to drive, with softer suspension tuning and more body motion.
  • The engine's good manners start to fade as the revs climb high, where noisy coarseness replaces power.

Interior Pros

  • The Fit's calling card is its interior, which is very roomy and offers class-leading versatility.
  • The second-row "Magic Seat" lives up to its name. Owners can set it in four different configurations to suit a variety of cargo or passenger needs, and switching between positions is easy.
  • Instead of radar-based blind spot monitors, the EX and EX-L feature LaneWatch – a wide-angle camera shows the right-side view of the car on the infotainment screen when a right turn is signaled – all but eliminating a troublesome blind spot.

Interior Cons

Honda Fit
  • The front seats of the Fit are basic to the point of being slightly undersupportive.
  • The instrument panel styling is more sci-fi dazzle than straightforward logic.
  • The touchscreen controls for the infotainment system can be fiddly.

The Most Pleasant Surprise

We continue to be impressed by the Fit's abundant interior space. Tall passengers may find the rear seat more accommodating than ones found in much larger cars.

The Least Pleasant Surprise

One person's refinement is another's loss of directness and character. Honda's efforts to make the Fit feel smoother and more upscale continue to dilute the liveliness that once was a company trademark.

The Bottom Line

The Fit's size and price say subcompact, but no one told the rest of the car. Customers who value innate goodness and capability instead of external dimensions should give the Fit serious consideration.
