2015 Honda Fit Video Review

  • This Honda Fit video review provides a quick look at this all-new, redesigned sub-compact hatchback. We cover fuel economy, pricing, interior space, competitors and what it's like to drive. For more information, read the 2015 Honda Fit review.

    The Honda Fit may be a sub-compact car on the outside, but inside, there's nothing sub- compact about it. If you want to get the most space and versatility out of an economical and efficient car, this is it.

    Just like the past two generations, the secret to this all-new Honda Fit' s versatility is its so-called Magic Seat. It folds completely flat into the floor, creating a total capacity of 52.7 cubic feet. That's nearly as much as some compact SUVs.

    But that's only part of the "magic." You can flip up the back seat bottoms to provide a place for a big screen TV box, a bicycle or a big dog. For people, the back seat now has more legroom, making it the most spacious in the segment - by far.

    There's some more room up front for the driver as well, with a more comfortable seat. More notably, though, the Fit's cabin is now up to par for the segment, with better materials and available niceties like heated leather seats.

    We're less enamored with the EX trim's new touchscreen interface. There are too many steps required to go between menus and the touch-operated volume control is annoying.

    Power for the new Fit comes from a new 1.5-liter four-cylinder that's matched to either a six-speed manual or a continuously variable automatic. With the CVT, fuel economy ranks at the top of the segment.

    Although we'd recommend checking out the Ford Fiesta and Hyundai Accent - especially if you'd prefer a sedan - the 2015 Fit's improved interior and driving experience, along with its continued unmatched versatility, make it one of our top-rated subcompact cars.
