Last year’s US News & World Report best cars for the money in both the Subcompact and Hatchback categories returns in 2017 to wage war again in the affordable car battlefield. Its weapons of choice are fun performance, snazzy style, and surprising large and highly functional interior.
The 2017 version of the 5 door Fit remains the same from last year – why fix what’s not broken? Fun to drive, with cargo capacity that rivals larger cars, and great fuel mileage, the Fit is a more than willing warrior for 2017, making any large-scale changes unnecessary.
A 4-cylinder 16 valve DOHC i-VTEC produces a scintillating 130HP in the Honda subcompact. The Fit’s spunky motor can be had with a six-speed manual transmission or in the EX-L trim, a CVT sport mode with paddle shifters. It is all backed up by a Drive-by-Wire throttle system with Hill Start Assist.
The sports edged aerodynamic exterior matches the fun performance attitude of the Fit. The interior is well laid out, attractive, and makes better use of space than most cars on the market. Vision inside the Fit is 360° of outward connection to the road environment.
Audio, phone, voice command and cruise control functions are steering wheel mounted, allowing hands to stay on the wheel and eyes on the road.
Safety is affirmed in the small compact with side, front and side curtain airbags, along with a solid list of advanced safety features found on vehicles with twice its cost. Honda’s ACE™ body structure helps distribute energy away from front passengers in the event of a collision. Vehicle Stability Assist automatically adjusts brake pressure and engine power in sudden potential oversteer or understeer situations.
Multi-Angle Rear View Camera, standard on the Fit, keeps information about what’s behind, always available. Honda Lane Watch automatically provides warning to what’s coming from the sides. A USB port and charging dock are positioned in the center console.
All the combined features of the Fit, along with its unique style and attributes make the price tag for customers even more attractive. The affordable 2017 Honda Fit knows what its mission is and can carry it out with friendly wink and a smile.
