2009 Honda Fit 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5M)


I had an 08 Honda Fit Base MT, that I traded in for my 09 Subaru Tribeca but then sorely regretted having let the Fit go, and purchased an 09 Fit Sport MT as an addition to the Tribeca. The 09 Fit feels much more substantial than the 08 Base Fit and clearly feels stiffer and more sporty. The mileage with both my 08 Fit and the 09 Fit have been significantly better than the EPA estimates - 35-36mpg in mixed driving conditions, which I am very happy with. As a repeat Fit buyer, I don't think I would be letting this little gem go, anytime soon!

Best Features

Excellent mileage, superb interior packaging, top-notch space efficiency, excellent fit and finish, sporty handling, small exterior size.

Worst Features

I liked the 08 Fit's rear hatch cover design better than the fixed version in the 09 Fit. I also like the shifter feel of the 08 Honda Fit better. Nit-picking really!
