Our Take

from the expert editorial team

What Is the 2017 Honda Fit?

The 2017 Honda Fit is a five-seat subcompact hatchback that competes with the Nissan Versa Note, Ford Fiesta and Chevrolet Sonic. Trims levels include LX, EX and EX-L (leather).

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.'s Editorial department is your source for automotive news and reviews.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
