This car has been great so far. Good gas mileage, and plenty of power. Compared to the 2012 Fit which I love also "still have it" the 2017 gets a little better gas mileage, more power, and feel as if it is a little heavier car. the 2017 doesn't have the room of the 2012 but enough for me. My wife loves the Bluetooth that works with her cell phone, the backup camera, and lane watch camera. Over all I'm well pleased and my wife also which is a plus for me.
Small, but well-designed. Comfortable seats. Great mileage, and good performance. The car is generally quiet, but some engine noise when accelerating; quiets down afterwards. Fan can be noisy. Bluetooth/phone integration works, speakerphone is great, but some glitches using voice dialing. Interface for USB could be better. My driving is mostly highway, Massachusetts Rt 2 west of 495, 495 north of Rt. 2 to Rt 3. Anyone who drives there knows road speed is high. Car handles well, and accelerates well enough to merge easily. And that is in regular, not sport mode. (Sluggish in economy mode, but that is expected). It is a Fit - which means you can fit a lot in it. But the cargo cover is needed, but not good this year. The 2012 cover was a lot better. This one falls off its pins because it is too narrow. For commuting, though, this car is great. And I get over 37 MPG. Note the 5 miles from my usual gas station to home, on secondary roads, MPG exceeds 40.
Although this car is a good car, very disappointed in the interior. Let me start by saying this is my 4th Honda so I love the Honda brand, always great quality and look. This car is wonderful from the outside but it fails on the interior, yes you can pay a lot more for upgrades but then it defeats the purpose of purchasing an affordable car. The seats are not very comfortable, buy seat cushions, it helps, the knobs on instrument panel are cheap looking and I am hoping they last but my biggest complaint of all is the flooring. I could not afford to buy the carpet mats as I was at top of my budget, was going to purchase my own well come to find that is not doable, the flooring on the front seating of Fit is nothing, no plain carpet just plastic that doesn't allow for anything to be put on it, any mats you try slip and slide and make it very dangerous to drive. I have NEVER purchased mats on my new car and used less espensive ones that worked perfectly because they stayed in place on carpet below, not on this car, no carpet so no mats. Your only choice is purchasing the Honda mats which are way too expensive. I suggest Honda look at this for future models and at least add some sort of carpeting in the front, think of your customers and their safety! Like I said as a 4 time Honda customer I am very let down by this.
I spend most of my driving on the freeway going back and forth to work so wanted a small car with good gas mileage but had to have great cargo area - the Fit hit all those areas wonderfully! I was shocked in how much room is in this small car - with the back seats down there is so much space to haul things and then flip the seats up and there is incredible room for tall things. It handles like a dream and I like the fuel economy mode that helps guide me to drive the most efficient way to maximize my MPG. My only real complaint is the lack of detailed instructions on how to use everything and the touch-screen display is not kind of clunky to get around but overall I am very impressed!
