2017 Honda Fit

Reviews of the 2017 Honda Fit are still coming in, but it’s becoming increasingly evident that this smart and spacious subcompact is a real game-changer. After taking the Fit out for a spin, checking out its interior modes, and getting to know its standard and available features, automotive experts have plenty to say about how the Fit can meet your demands and surpass your expectations.


“Honda's "Magic Seat" rear seat setup might not be sorcery, but it sure seems close.” – The Car Connection

Few automotive features define their vehicle like the Magic Seat defines the 2017 Honda Fit. It can be moved and manipulated in order to switch between four separate cargo modes:

  • Long Mode: Fold down the Magic Seat and the front passenger seat to transport longer items.
  • Tall Mode: Create up to four feet of vertical space by dropping a rear seat cushion.
  • Utility Mode: Boost your cargo capacity up to 52.7 cubic feet.
  • Refresh Mode: Relax along the entire length of the Fit while you put your feet up.

Drive and Efficiency

“The suspension offers up the kind of predictable handling you'd expect, but with a sharpness that you don't, and it combines with good-feeling steering and the responsive engine to make this little subcompact genuinely entertaining in sharp corners.” – Kelley Blue Book

Reviews were quick to draw attention to the Fit’s fiery and engaging drive, which comes about thanks to extensive aerodynamic styling and an output of up to 130-hp and 114 lb.-ft. of torque. The vehicle remains eminently economical by making up to 33 mpg in the city and 40 mpg on the highway*.

Features and Fittings

“The Fit made subcompact cars a mainstream consideration. Today's Fit continues to offer those winning traits while adding cutting-edge technology and creature comforts such as leather upholstery and keyless ignition.” –

The Fit finishes garnering your respect and admiration by delivering plenty of high-end amenities not commonly seen within the subcompact segment, including heated front seats, leather upholstery, and a multi-angle rearview camera system.
