2020 Honda Fit video

MARK TAKAHASHI: I'm Edmunds editor Mark Takahashi. And here's an Expert Rundown with the 2017 Honda Fit. There is a lot to like about the Honda Fit. it gets great fuel economy, handles surprisingly well, and is pretty fun to drive for an economy hatchback. Some drawbacks, however, is its lack of power, weak braking performance, and noticeable road noise. It may seem small on the outside, but it's surprisingly spacious inside. In terms of cargo capacity, it's huge for the class, rivaling that of crossover SUVs. Adding to that the unique flip-up magic rear seat provides a floor-to-ceiling cargo space. And the full [? flat ?] front seat allows for items up to eight feet long. Honda's frustrating touchscreen interface is one of the few drawbacks. But it's probably not a deal-breaker. Its closest competitors are the Kia Soul, Ford Fiesta, and the Ford or Toyota Yaris. But the bottom line is, you can't beat the Fit for versatility on a budget.

Should I lease or buy a 2020 Honda Fit?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
