The 2008 Fit remains loyal to Honda's original vision: good cars for not a lot of cash. The base model brings with it a host of standard equipment, capacity, and safety features, not to mention fuel economy that is second to none.
The Fit is one of the most versatile small cars on the market. Despite its diminutive exterior proportions, the car has an array of clever features that maximize interior space. The aptly named Magic Seat folds up to allow four feet of height in the second row for bicycles and the like. The Magic Seat also folds down completely flat to provide almost 42 cubic feet of cargo space. Both the driver and passenger setbacks fold flat, providing room for long items or a place to stretch out.
The Fit proves that inexpensive doesn't mean cheap. Power windows, door locks, and air conditioning are standard. The Fit also packs in the safety features. Front, side, and curtain air bags are standard, as well as anti-lock brakes (ABS). For even more features, the Fit Sport adds alloy wheels and more creature comforts such as, cruise control and a leather wrapped steering wheel with audio controls. The Sport also has fog lights, an upgraded audio system, and even paddle shifters when ordered with the automatic transmission.
The Fit has a 1.5L four-cylinder engine with VTEC variable valve timing and lift, making 109 horsepower. A Drive-by-Wire throttle control enhances throttle response and performance with the optional five-speed automatic transmission. A five-speed manual gearbox is standard.
Changes are few for the 2008 Honda Fit, which made its U.S. debut last year. Despite the marginal yearly price increase, the Fit is still a phenomenal value.
Reliability and value; carry-it-all capability, without sacrificing precious fuel economy; lengthy list of standard equipment for the money.
The 2008 Honda Fit continues is a well-thought-out, functional vehicle not devoid of style or fun. It is Honda's smallest car, but it smartly utilizes every cubic inch of space to create a functionality that belies its size. A long list of standard equipment makes picking out the perfect Fit as easy as picking a manual or automatic transmission. Like most Hondas, reliability and resale value are strong points for the Fit.
