2009 Honda Fit: I Fit A Bit Better in the Fit

December 11, 2009

Honda Fit Front Seat

Hot on the heels of my cramped adventures in the SX4, I drew the Fit straw last night. The last Fit fit me pretty similar as the SX4 -- not enough seat travel, the back of the seat was mounted too high, there was no height adjustment and no telescoping steering wheel.

The new Fit, however, is better. There's still no height adjustment, but the back of the seat is mounted a little lower. The telescoping wheel is also a big help. I'm generally more comfortable, but I still wouldn't want to travel very far in the Fit. This isn't a small car thing, either. The Mini is fantastic and the new Ford Fiesta is pretty good, too. Hell, even the Smart was OK. I'm curious to see what the small Fiats (500, Panda) will be like if and when they show up in Chrysler dealerships.
