A lot can happen in 10 years; life can change and so can cars. This year Honda released the 2017 Honda Fit which puts the versatile, fun and affordable Fit line into its tenth year on the market of the United States. The 2017 Fit remains one of the most fuel efficient cars on the road today and continues to be built on its phenomenal award winning platform which earned it recognition for Best Hatchback for the Money by U.S. News & World Report,One of America’s 10 Best Back-to-School Cars by KBB.com and a Five Star Rating from NHTSA in 2016.
Boasting an amazing 36/29 Hwy/City MPG rating, the traditional, five-door hatchback is available in three different trim levels: LX, EX and the EX-L. The Fit comes standard with automatic headlights, Bluetooth and a center console with storage. Different trims levels will offer features such as a power moonroof, a 7.0-inch touchscreen display audio system and heated leather seats. Also new for 2017 is the addition of Alabaster Silver Metallic to the exterior color options.
What really sets the Fit apart from other compact hatchbacks is the amount of interior space it boasts. According to Honda, the vehicle offers class-leading passenger space and versatility courtesy of its center-mounted fuel tank and their “Magic Seat.” In fact, Honda states that the Fit offers nearly four more inches of legroom to passengers in the rear of the car. Instead of being limited in storage space, the Fit has the storage capacity of a larger SUV due to the folding ability of the seats. Car and Driver even called the original model a “diminutive road warrior with Great-Pumpkin interior volume.” How often can that be said about a compact hatchback? Not very often and the Fit owns that extra space!
