2010 Honda Fit
One of the leaders in it's class. High quality interior. Luxury in design. The Fit falls into all of these categories and more! The new generation of the Fit, which first appeared in 2009, resembles the previous generation but with a longer, gradually sloping nose.
Design of the 2010 Fit
Honda incorporated a large sail-shaped window into each A-pillar, which visually extends the side windows forward of the front doors. Additional design changes for this generation include a wider stance, more aggressive fender flares and sharper character lines along the side.
Honda Fit Cabin
The Fit has room for five and a unique second-row "Magic Seat" that either
folds flat with the cargo floor, or flips up to carry tall items behind the
first row of seats. The Fit is large on the inside for such a small car, and the
redesign increased both backseat legroom and cargo capacity. Space inside the cabin ranges is almost-spacious in front and
adequate in back, especially for a car this size. The materials feel ample and
durable, and the center stack layout is among the easiest, most intuitively
placed schemes we've seen in some time. The large knobs that control the
environment and settings curve around the stereo controls on the driver's side,
making the design stylish and easy to reach, though the plastic controls felt a
bit thin to the touch. Honda has improved critical elements of the interior
while leaving the awesome utility of the little car mostly intact.
Honda Fit Handling and Power
Both trims of the Honda Fit are powered by a 1.5-liter i-VTEC four-cylinder
engine with front-wheel drive and a choice of a five-speed manual or five-speed
automatic. The Sport gets steering wheel mounted paddle shifters when equipped
with the automatic transmission. The 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine develops 117
horsepower and 106 pounds-feet of torque. For an economy car, the Fit is fun to
drive. For everyday driving it's an obedient and comfortable conveyance, thanks
to new seats and suspension changes that smoothed out the previous model's ride.
Furthermore, the Fit is fuel efficient, earning an EPA-estimated 27/33 mpg
