2016 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: After a redesign last year, Fit is unchanged for 2016. The lone engine on all Fits is a 1.5-liter 4-cylinder with 130 horsepower, up 13 from the previous-generation engine. A continuously variable transmission (CVT) is available on all Fits, and a six-speed manual is offered on entry-level LX and midlevel EX models. The all-new Fit offers even more interior space, improving on what was already the most space-efficient, cargo-versatile vehicle in its class. Interior materials, available technology features, and overall noise levels are other notable areas of improvement. As before, the Fit’s compact size, responsive steering, and sporty suspension tuning make it very nimble, but the ride is a bit stiff. Still, the new Fit remains one of the most compelling vehicles in the subcompact class.
