2009 Honda Fit Sport: Will it Fit?
June 08, 2009
In the spirit of Blendtec's internet sensation "Will it Blend?", we introduce "Will it Fit?", featuring our long-term Honda Fit (how fitting). None of my personal vehicles are capable of transporting a 15.5 gallon beverage container (also known as a half barrel/full keg), so I gave it a shot in our Fit...
The short answer is an emphatic "Yes!" But I was actually surprised how easily an empty keg of Boddingtons fits. So easily in fact, that I may be able to fit two in the hatch. But an empty keg only weighs 30 pounds, making it fairly effortless to hurl it into the trunk. I would suspect that a 170 lb. full keg would be a job for two people and cause quite a bit of wear and tear to the interior trim during loading, despite the relatively low liftover height. And just so you know, the keg only takes up 2.75 cubic feet of the Fit's 20.6 cubes.
So there you have it. What do you think we should try to fit next? (I think if we had our Smart ForTwo "cubed" at a wrecking yard, it'd fit in the Fit.)
