The Honda Fit has consistently been a strong competitor in the sub-compact segment.
Though competition in the realm of sub-compacts is not what it once was, some models still manage to stand out from the tiny crowd. Fuel efficiency, compact utility and versatility are the motto of the segment. For Honda, reliability and safety are also thrown into the mix, remaining a focus of the manufacturer, even at a smaller scale. And that’s everything the 2016 Honda Fit will get you.
Introduced on the North American market ten years ago, the Honda Fit has consistently been a strong competitor in the sub-compact segment. The third generation of the little car was launched in 2014 with an updated look and a much more appealing silhouette, ditching the mini-minivan style for more dynamic lines. The muscular redesign of the front portion opened up a door for the rest of the lineup, the Fit being one of the first models from the Honda family to receive the maker’s new design language. Built on a next-generation ACE body structure, the new generation does everything well. It has in fact earned the best crash test results thanks, among other things, to a flight of passive and active safety features that include brake assist, hill start assist, Honda LaneWatch and even HondaLink Assist.
The Fit is also one of the most versatile model in the segment with great cargo volume and plenty of interior layout possibilities. Behind the second row of seats, the trunk totals 470L, but with the second row of seats folded down, the volume triples to reach 1,492L. With the 40/60 split and Magic Seats that fold up, the Fit offers numerous layout possibilities to match every needs., whether passengers are involved - up to five of them - or bulky items need to be taken from point A to point B.
Safety is not all that’s on Honda’s mind in terms of technology. The driver and passenger’s comfort is also a key element the manufacturer takes pride in. That’s why the Fit features, options such as Honda Link infotainment system with five-inch screen and Hands Free Link Bluetooth integration, rearview camera, proximity key with push button ignition, cruise control with wheel-mounted controls, heated front seats and Siri Eyes Free compatibility with text message function.
The 2016 Honda Fit is equipped with a 1.5L four-cylinder rated at 130hp and 114 lb-ft of torque. The sub-compact comes with a standard six-speed manual transmission with available CVT and paddle shifters. With the manual transmission, the Fit offers an average fuel economy of 7.3L, versus 6.8L/100km with the CVT.
