Overview

It’s rare when you find a car that combines driving pleasure, great fuel economy, and utility at a price that makes it seem like an incredible bargain. Granted, the Fit is quite small, but its high roof gives it the look and feel of a small minivan. The rear Magic Seat folds eight ways to Sunday and, combined with that high roof, creates a versatile cargo area that measures 57.3 cubic feet behind the rear seats—more than in the Crosstour. The Fit’s 117-hp, 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine isn’t overly powerful, but it is willing to rev and is efficient, returning up to 35 mpg on the highway. It can be paired with a manual or an automatic transmission, both with five forward speeds. The Sport model has steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters that help you get the most out of the automatic. If that powertrain isn’t green enough for you, Honda is offering an all-electric Fit EV only to lessees in select markets (initially in California and Oregon, expanding to six east-coast areas in 2013) that delivers 123 hp and the equivalent of 118 mpg. Both electric and gasoline vehicles provide the Fit’s signature package of convenience and driving prowess.
