2017 Honda Fit Review
If you’re looking for a zippy little commuter car for your drives around Panama City, Springfield, and Callaway, look no further than the Honda Fit. This classic subcompact car is incredibly easy to maneuver, and achieves impressive fuel efficiency ratings. Plus, for its tiny size, this hatchback offers fantastic cargo space. This 2017 Honda Fit review from the team at Honda of Bay County will tell you everything you need to know about the Honda Fit, so you can decide if it would be a good fit for your needs.
Honda Fit Performance
The 2017 Fit comes standard with a 1.5L 4-cylinder engine that produces 130 horsepower. The engine is paired with a 6-speed manual transmission, or a continuously variable transmission (CVT), which acts like an automatic. With the manual transmission, the 2017 Fit is EPA-estimated to reach a fuel efficiency rating of 29 city/36 highway MPG*. Opt for the CVT, and you’ll get 32 city/37 highway MPG*. Front-wheel drive is standard, and you’ll enjoy sharp steering and nimble handling.
Honda Fit Interior
When you hear the word “subcompact,” spaciousness might not be what comes to mind, but the Honda Fit interior certainly does come equipped with plenty of room for both passengers and cargo. The vehicle seats five passengers and comes with standard cloth upholstery.
In the front seat, you’ll have 39.5 inches of headroom and 41.4 inches of legroom. Rear passengers will have 37.5 inches of headroom and legroom measuring 39.3 inches, which is spacious for a subcompact car.
Honda Fit Cargo Space
The 2017 Fit’s most notable feature is the Magic Seat®, which can transform into four different modes, depending upon what you need to pile into the car: Utility, Long, Tall, and Refresh. That means you can fold the second row flat, fold the second row and front passenger seat flat, recline completely for comfort, or even fold the seat up to create a large vertical space for tall cargo.
With all five seats in use, you’ll have 16.6 cubic feet of cargo space in the back of the Fit. With the rear Magic Seat® folded forward, you’ll have access to a total of 52.7 cubic feet of cargo capacity, which is large enough to haul just about anything you could possibly need for your day.
