2017 Honda Fit Review
It’s the small car with big attitude. The 2017 Honda Fit is in its 10th year, and it continues to grow in recognition. US News and World Report even named the Honda Fit as the 2017 Best Hatchback for the Money, and that’s because of its incredible bang for the buck. See why the 2017 Honda Fit is the right vehicle for your lifestyle.
What’s New for 2017
How do you improve on a winner? The Honda Fit continues to make great use of its efficient 1.5-liter engine and still offers the choice for a 6-speed manual or CVT transmission. Its design is modern and attractive with striking features and athletic lines in a segment dominated by bulky, lifeless shapes. So, to keep the 2017 Honda Fit fresh, a new color is brought into the lineup – Lunar Silver metallic.
Making Hatchback Sexy
The 2017 Honda Fit isn’t your typical hatchback. While never deviating from its functional, versatile purpose, the Fit is the hatchback you want to be seen in. As the Honda Fit approaches, an aggressive and sporty front comes into view. A bold black center grille stands out from the body-color bumper and highlights the ‘H’ fitted on the front. The hood dives down low, giving the Fit an athletic appearance that continues through to the back.
Body lines and a high window beltline draw your eye up toward the back. The hatch ties in seamlessly, and a roof-mounted spoiler finishes the join. Bumper accents and a flashy chrome applique complete the look out back.
Attitude continues into the driver’s seat, where you’re surrounded by the high-quality materials and layout Honda is known for. Of particular note is the 2nd-row Magic Seat, a 60/40 split rear seat with four different configurations possible. When the rear seats are down, the Fit has an astounding 95.7 cubic feet of cargo space.
Comfort is a guarantee for everyone in the 2017 Honda Fit. Seating for 5 is not just possible – it’s comfortable. Heated seats are available for the driver and front passenger, and with the EX-L trim, leather seating surfaces are also available.
Also offered on upper trim levels are incredible tech features. Honda LaneWatch, Satellite-Linked Navigation System, and Push Button Start with Smart Entry are available, while a Multi-Angle Rearview Camera, Bluetooth connectivity, and Display Audio infotainment are standard on all Fit models.
Efficiency Takes Center Stage
