Great big little car
By UofAalum on


2010 Honda Fit Sport 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5M)


Traded a 2008 Altima 6-speed manual for the 5-speed manual base Fit (which was hard to find, but I only buy manuals). Amazing interior room for the exterior size. Great ride and handling. While it wouldn't win a drag race with the Altima, it is just as much fun to drive. Test drove the Sport with the paddle shifters, but the manual is much more responsive -- sure, there's some engine noise when you get up into the power range (>4K RPM), but it's smooth as silk at all RPM and if you keep it in its power range it's very responsive. Getting 31 mpg in town and up to 40 on the road at speeds of 60- 70. Above 70 mph the MPG drops fast as RPM go well above 3K. Great car!

Best Features

Slick manual transmission that, when used correctly, makes it a fine performer. Great interior room and very supportive seats. Great ride for a car of this size. Nice dash and controls. Exterior looks are good to me, but fairly radical and may not suit everyone. Fun to drive factor is a 10.

Worst Features

Needs a 6-speed manual for freeway cruising at lower RPM. Lack of standard keyless entry on base model. Power lock control is only available at the drivers seat. Huge A-pillar blocks view on sharp left curves on mountain roads.
