2007 Honda Fit Long-Term Road Test

Honda Fit: Ultimate Space Efficiency

February 01, 2007

We all know that the Fit is perhaps the most entertaining econobox out there in terms of driving dynamics. But equally impressive is its ease of use for carrying bulky items. Fold the rear seats down and there's 42 cubic feet of cargo space available, about average for the class. But unlike some small cars where the folded seatbacks angle upward, the Fit's cargo bay floor is nearly perfectly flat when in max hauling mode, making it easier to slide heavy items in from the rear hatch or side door openings.

Another small but appreciated detail is the recessed grab handle to pull the hatch down, something that cost like $5 to incorporate into the car, but something not all budget hatchbacks have.
