2010 Honda Fit Base Hatchback

2010 Honda Fit Review

(5 Stars)  Still Fit, others getting fitter

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

The Honda Fit is not only one of the newest offering from Honda, but it is also one of the most innovative hatchbacks around. The Honda Fit has some very quick responding handling and a very smart body and interior package. This vehicle is very fun to drive and if you love to zip around in a peppy little 5 speed, then this Honda is going to be your new favorite. The Fit comes with a standard 5 speed manual transmission or can be fitted with a paddle shiftable 5-speed automatic. This car has been around since 2006 and has received a totally new makeover in 2009. There are not going to be any major changes to the body or interior design for this year's model, but the 2010 Fit still has the Magic Seat in the back that offer a multitude of storage options including folding completely flat.

There is some new competition from Ford in the subcompact car market with their new Fiesta model, but the Fit is still a very strong competitor even though it may have been beat in fuel economy and overall performance.
