2018 Honda Fit

Pros: Outstanding interior cargo space and versatility in a small package; agile, fun-to-drive character; availability of upscale features

Cons: Engine is noisy during acceleration; touchscreen system absorbs virtually all audio functions and complicates many of them; ride is rather stiff

CG Says: Honda Fit is refreshed for 2018. Styling has been tweaked, suspension retuned, and there is more sound insulation for a quieter interior. There is a new Sport model with a unique front-end design and 16-inch alloy wheels. The Honda Sensing package of safety features is now available on all models. There is also a new 7-inch touchscreen that includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. Fit is a subcompact four-door hatchback. The lone engine on all Fits is a 1.5-liter 4-cylinder with 130 horsepower. A continuously variable transmission (CVT) is available on all Fits, and a six-speed manual is offered on entry-level LX, Sport, and midlevel EX models. Available features include autonomous emergency braking, lane-departure warning and mitigation, road-departure mitigation, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot alert, and cross-traffic alert. The Fit is most space-efficient, cargo-versatile vehicle in its class. Fit’s compact size, responsive steering, and sporty suspension tuning make it very nimble, but the ride is a bit stiff. Still, Fit remains one of the most compelling vehicles in the subcompact class.
