What Is the 2017 Honda Fit?
What's New on the 2017 Honda Fit?
The Honda Fit was extensively redesigned in 2015 and many of those changes have carried over into 2017. It's essentially unchanged.
How Does the 2017 Honda Fit Compare to Other Hatchbacks?
The base-level LX is more expensive than some other subcompact hatchbacks, but it offers a complete array of features and, with its rear Magic Seat folded, has double the cargo space of the Ford Fiesta. Fully equipped, the Honda Fit maxes out at around $22,000, and rivals the Nissan Versa Note in terms of value.
What Features in the 2017 Honda Fit Are Most Important?
The Honda Fit is powered by a 130-horsepower, 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine, a six-speed manual transmission and front-wheel drive. There's also an optional continuously variable automatic transmission. Significant standard features include a body-colored liftgate spoiler, automatic headlights, remote keyless entry and a backup camera. Inside, there's a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, air conditioning, cruise control and Bluetooth. The 60/40-split, folding backseat folds down to reveal up to 52.7 cubic feet of cargo space. As required in all new cars of this model year, front airbags, antilock brakes and an electronic stability system are also standard.
One of the Honda Fit's most important available features is Honda LaneWatch, which uses a side camera to show cars approaching from the right and rear. Another noteworthy feature is the upgraded stereo with a 7-inch touchscreen, which can be used to access navigation, Pandora and more. Comforts like heated front seats, heated side mirrors, leather upholstery, a power moonroof and push-button start are also available options.
Should I Buy the 2017 Honda Fit?
The Honda Fit touches on many of the traits cars shoppers in this class want, including good ride quality and visibility. Generous features and cargo space give it broad appeal. On the other hand, its engine can be noisy, and its small backseat won't be comfortable for the tallest passengers. Additionally, it doesn't offer a bare-bones trim level for drivers who truly want the basics -- sans any bells and whistles.
