Pros

Space-efficient design; excellent seats; nimble handling; safety and convenience features not usually found in an inexpensive small car


Model Highlights

The Fit is very fun to drive, thanks to a 117-horsepower, 1.5L 4-cylinder engine that features Honda's i-VTEC variable valve timing system. The engine provides enough power even with the available automatic transmission, which has five speeds for better passing response and more relaxed highway cruising. A precise-shifting 5-speed manual is standard, but for those who want the best of both worlds, the Fit Sport model, when fitted with the automatic transmission, features paddle-shifters alongside the steering wheel.

With its front MacPherson strut and rear torsion beam setup, the Fit's suspension utilizes a common layout, yet handles nimbly. Ride quality is firm but also absorbent. The rack-and-pinion electric power steering system is especially good, with crisp turn-in and a firm, direct feel of the road in tight corners.

Above all else, it's the Fit's interior that impresses the most. Front seats are ample for tall or large adults, an armrest is available in front and the back seat can actually seat adults, thanks to plenty of headroom all around and longer cushions than is customary for back seats. What's more, thanks to Honda's Magic Seat, the Fit's rear seat folds neatly down to create a flat floor with just one continuous motion, with no need to even remove the rear headrests. The steering wheel adjusts for tilt and telescope, and there's a footrest for the driver. There is also an abundance of convenient cup holders and cubbies.

Thanks to the versatile configuration, the Fit is surprisingly commodious for large cargo items. With the seats down, there is 57.3 cubic feet of space--enough for items like a big-screen TV or cumbersome sports equipment--and there's no tall edge to lift over when loading items.

Standard safety equipment on the Fit includes anti-lock brakes and active front headrests, along with front side and side-curtain airbags. Electronic stability control, a feature not usually seen on low-priced small cars, is standard on all Fits.

The Fit comes in two different models: Fit and Fit Sport. Even the base Fit includes a long list of features, such as air conditioning, power windows and power locks--but the Fit Sport adds a long list of the most popular features, like larger alloy wheels, remote entry, cruise control, steering wheel-mounted audio controls, and a premium 160-watt sound system with USB input and MP3 capability. It's also dressed up a bit more, with aerodynamic spoilers and additional chrome trim outside, plus perforated leather trim for the steering wheel. Navigation is available on the Fit Sport, and includes Bluetooth hands-free connectivity and Honda's Satellite-Linked Navigation with voice recognition.


Model News

For 2012, the Honda Fit Sport features a new front fascia, revised wheels and body-colored mirrors. Base models now include a security system, and Bluetooth hands-free connectivity has been added to Fit Sports with navigation. Blue Raspberry Metallic and Orangeburst Metallic are new additions to the exterior color palette.


Value Writeup

The Fit appeals to frugal shoppers who want the most space and versatility in a very small, easy-to-park size. Thanks to its tall, upright body style and clever Magic Seat setup, the Fit is arguably the most space-efficient vehicle in its class and is one of the few vehicles its size with a back seat roomy enough for most adults. Performance is a step above its class, with nimble handling, a perky engine and an available 5-speed automatic. Safety is also a strong in the Fit, featuring standard anti-lock brakes, vehicle stability assist and traction control across the lineup.

Summary
Honda (American Honda Motor Co.) is recalling certain model year 2007-2011 Honda CR-V, 2011-2015 CR-Z, 2010-2014 FCX, and Insight, 2009-2013 Fit, 2013-2014 Fit EV, 2007-2014 Ridgeline, 2013-2016 Acura ILX, 2013-2014 Acura ILX Hybrid, 2007-2016 RDX, 2005-2012 Acura RL, 2009-2014 Acura TL, and 2010-2013 Acura ZDX vehicles. The affected vehicles are equipped with a dual-stage driver frontal air bag that may be susceptible to moisture intrusion which, over time, could cause the inflator to rupture.

Consequence
In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the driver's frontal air bag, the inflator could rupture with metal fragments striking the driver or other occupants resulting in serious injury or death.

Honda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the inflator, free of charge. Remedy parts are expected to be available in Summer 2016. Interim notices will be mailed to owners during March 2016. Owners will receive a second notice when remedy parts become available. Owners may contact Honda customer service at 1-888-234-2138. Honda's numbers for this recall are JY0, JY1, and JY2.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Dynamic (moving) test results (Tip or No Tip) and measured rollover-related properties determine vehicle's risk of rollover in single vehicle crash and its rollover rating. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is.
