Excellent Small Car
By James on
2010 Honda Fit Sport 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5M)
I selected the 5-speed manual as the automatic stole too much power from the engine. The manual offers surprising performance, smooth acceleration, and is averaging a 28-30 MPG around town. Very fun to drive and has good handling for small car. It can be loud at highway speeds due to road noise and high engine RPM. No problems with front seat comfort as others mention I am 6'2". The rear magic seat is amazing. With everything folded down, the fit will swallow an unbelievable amount of cargo, surpassing many small SUVs. Audio system is excellent. Interior design is simple and functional, but does not feel cheap. No other small car can provide so much value and versatility.
Fun to drive. Rear magic seat. Audio system. Value for money / low operating costs. Build quality.
Should have 6th gear to reduce engine RPM at highway speeds. Shifting and engine response can be clumsy at times during light acceleration, but is turbine smooth when you step on it. Would have expected slightly better MPG due to light weight and small engine.
