Fit is still the best B-segment car (but for how long)
By mhadden1 on
Vehicle
2011 Honda Fit Sport 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5M)
Review
This thing is a blast to drive, has respectable mpgs (above EPA estimates), and has more space than anyone could guess from the outside. Although the materials in the cabin are decent, it won't take you long to see they are relatively cheap. You'll also notice the "small" things that you may be use to are not present (heated mirrors, adjustable intermittent wipers). Small gripes, but noticeable. The manual trans shifts smoothly, but a 6th gear is needed to bring the rpms at 60mph below 3k. The Fit is still nice, but other cars are catching up to it (material quality and options, not to mention lower priced). The question is whether or not they will match Honda's long-term reliability...
Favorite Features
5-speed manual, general exterior styling, Honda's "magic seat", USB interface, "hidden" second glovebox above "normal" glovebox.
Suggested Improvements
Heated mirrors (with integrated turn signal) and larger capacity washer fluid tank for US cars, 6th gear for the manual (5th gear at 60mph is 3k rpm!), ADJUSTABLE intermittent wipers. In general, why not bring more of the options and refinement available overseas to the US (panoramic roof, power fold mirrors, auto-climate, etc) since small cars are going to be here to stay?
