2017 Honda Fit: Overview
The 2017 Honda Fit offers tons of options, including several fun exterior colors, like Orange Fury, Helios Yellow, Milano Red, and more! Its small size makes for excellent daily commuting, and it offers plenty of space as a hatchback.
And did we mention that the Honda Fit was named the 2017 Best Subcompact Car for the Money by U.S. News & World Report1? So, don’t just take our word for it-the Honda Fit is an excellent choice by pro standards, too!
Just the Right Fit: Interior Space & Technology
One of the most impressive features about the Honda Fit is its spacious and upscale interior. Leather upholstery, along with heated front seats, come standard in the EX-L trim, so all five of your passengers can experience the ultimate in comfort.
Speaking of comfort, the 2017 Honda Fit is incredibly spacious. With 39.3 inches of legroom in the backseat, your passengers will be amazed at how much room they have to stretch out. Add 16.6 cubic feet of trunk space (52.7 cubic feet with the backseat down), and you’ll be second guessing whether you’re really driving a subcompact car.
In terms of technology, the Honda Fit offers features like navigation and Bluetooth® via a touchscreen display, so you can get to your destinations efficiently, while staying connected to your favorite jams on the way.
Engine Power & Performance in the Fit
The 2017 Honda Fit offers a 1.5L 4-cylinder engine that puts out 130 horsepower-that’s plenty of power for both your daily commutes and longer drives. An available continuously variable transmission (CVT) is available in the LX and EX models.
Another feature we couldn’t wait to highlight here is the Fit’s fuel economy. With an EPA-estimated 29 city/36 highway MPG, you might start to forget what a fuel pump looks like. Opt for the available CVT, and you’ll get an EPA-estimated 33 city/40 highway MPG.2 Either way, both are stand-out numbers in the class.
Staying Safe in the 2017 Honda Fit
The 2017 Honda Fit received great safety scores, to add to its already appealing features. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the Fit a 5-Star Overall Safety RatingÂ³, and it earned the highest score of Good from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
The Honda Fit comes standard with a rearview camera and Brake Assist, and also Honda LaneWatch™ (in all but the base trim), which displays almost four times more than your passenger-side mirror to avoid a lane-changing collision.
