2007 Honda Fit: Do I Fit in the Fit?
August 13, 2007
I have tried my best to avoid driving the Fit home at night. I love the little Honda -- it's a blast to drive and is a marvel of packaging -- but based on past experiences I ironically just don't fit in the Fit. Knowing that I didn't have to amass great distances this weekend, I grabbed the key to see if a little more seat time would change my impression. While it still doesn't provide nearly enough 6-foot-3-friendly space, it was a little better than I remembered it...
I wouldn't want to drive to Vermont in the thing, but around town, I was comfortable enough.
In fact, after driving our new long-term Honda Civic GX, I found that I was more comfortable in the Fit. The bigger Civic's leg room is pretty bad too, but the Fit's higher seat cushion gives it a slight tall-dude advantage. I couldn't possibly buy either car, but it's good to know that I don't have to so readily dismiss the Fit for a night.
