2017 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 unchanged for 2017. 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 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.
