2019 Honda Fit

Buyer's Guide

More than a decade after its introduction, the Honda Fit remains one of the most innovative subcompact cars you can get, not because it boasts an advanced drivetrain or avant-garde safety features, but because of a smartly designed interior that lends it the kind of space some larger vehicles only dream about.

Following a mid-cycle refresh last year, the third-generation Fit carries over for 2019 with one addition: the Honda Sensing active safety package (standard in all models with the automatic transmission) gains automatic high beam headlights.

Honda's decision to make that package available from about $20,000 is a nice nod to the democratization of safety, proving that even drivers on a budget deserve to feel safe. By the same token, the standard six-speed manual can't be had with the Honda Sensing suite suggests people who like driving stick don't get to feel secure.

Hyundai, Kia and Toyota all offer their smallest models with some active safety features, but Honda's package is among the most comprehensive in the subcompact class.

All Fit trims share a 1.5L four-cylinder engine making 130 hp and 118 lb-ft of torque. The six-speed stick is standard everywhere save the top EX-L Navi trim; it gets a continuously variable automatic optional in all but the entry-level DX. In Sport, EX and EX-L models, the automatic comes with steering wheel-mounted shift paddles that activate a seven-speed manual shift mode.

The six-speed is a good choice for its slick shifter and lightweight clutch, but the automatic is better for highway driving as it keeps engine speeds -- and, hence, engine noise -- down for added refinement.

Starting with the DX, standard kit includes a backup camera, 15-inch steel wheels with covers, power windows, locks and heated side mirrors and Bluetooth.

Move up to the LX for heated front seats, cruise control, multi-angle backup camera and an upgraded infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality.

Sport trim adds leather-trimmed steering wheel and shifter, six-speaker stereo, 16-inch alloy wheels and the aforementioned exterior trim enhancements.

EX models get passive keyless entry, silver alloy wheels, sunroof, variable intermittent wipers, auto on/off headlights and the LaneWatch blind spot display.

Finally, EX-L Navi gets automatic climate control, navigation and display audio, leather-trimmed seats, HD and satellite radio and mirror-mounted turn signal repeaters.

Fuel consumption estimates are 7.0/5.9 L/100 km (city/highway) with the automatic transmission (7.6/6.5 when using the shift paddles in the Sport, EX and EX-L trims) and 8.1/6.6 with the six-speed.

2008 Honda Fit

Trim: DX
by docscoutjr on 10-13-2012
Best little/big car out there
These little v-tec driven cars are great! Lots of room, handles well, and super fuel efficient without being boring. Was able to hang with an RX350 on the highway doing 150-165, no problem.
Not a lot of torque left at that speed, but still quite impressive.
One of the few cars still built in Japan and is well worth it.

2012 Honda Fit

Trim: LX
by New_review on 10-12-2012
Great little commuter car

After researching online we decided on the 2012 Honda Fit as a second vehicle. We use it primarily as a commuter car - where it excels. It has great handling, can fit two young children in the back with no problem and is easy on gas.
Also, for a little car it has tons of cargo space.

The only down side is that the road noise can be a little loud.

We have had ours for several months and are still happy with it.

2007 Honda Fit

by Bernie on 10-12-2012
Great on fuel;superb storage capacity (rear Magic seats)
Quick,tight steering;zippy little motor - great for city driving and easy to drive on the highway. The storage capacity is amazing with the rear seats down flat-close to 40" of height with enough room for two mountain bikes standing upright. A bit weak on the technology side of things compared to current car models but adequate for most owners.
