Honda Fit: Seating Position
March 05, 2007
Among the many user friendly features of the Honda Fit is its seats. Thanks to what car designers call a "high hip point" (which means the seat cushion is rather high), it's easy to slide into the Fit, whether you're getting into one of the front or rear seats. Another benefit of the higher seating position is the better view outward it allows. Visibility out over the small hood and out to the sides is excellent and an asset when dealing with the cut and thrust of city driving.
Typical of a Honda, the Fit provides plenty of cubbies. The open slot next to the parking brake is ideal for my wallet (I stopped leaving it in my back pocket when I started having lower back trouble).
