Big punch in a little car
Paul S,06/16/2017
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! [One year into my "new" Fit and I have to say I am just as impressed as I was a year ago - great car!]
Little red rocket.
Frankie N.,01/22/2017
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.
Very nice for the price. Superb mileage
Steven Kovner,05/12/2017
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.
Still Disappointed After 1 1/2 yr Mark
Murph,02/27/2017
Everywhere I have been reading about the wonderful MPG and it was MAIN reason I purchased this car, well since buying in Feb. 2017 been having terrible MPG averaging around 26 combined and 30 if I am lucky on highway. Dealer has worked on car two times, first time found the specs were off and had to fix gave car back and still the same, next time they found issues with fuel injectors so had to replace, gave the care back, same problem. Now they don't know what to do, they suggested it was how I drove the car, yeah right, my friend took for a couple of days and she had the same MPG as I did. Had to call Honda Corp and they are working with dealer to find the issues, have to take car back again. This is my 4th Honda, all others were great, this one not so much and am very disappointed and frustrated with the whole thing! I am hoping they can fix issue, or either replace the car all together or give me full refund, it will fall under lemon law soon. I really want the car so I am hoping something can be worked out. But wanted others to know just in case anyone else is having the same issue.

MARK TAKAHASHI: I'm Edmunds editor Mark Takahashi. And here's an Expert Rundown with the 2017 Honda Fit. There is a lot to like about the Honda Fit. it gets great fuel economy, handles surprisingly well, and is pretty fun to drive for an economy hatchback. Some drawbacks, however, is its lack of power, weak braking performance, and noticeable road noise. It may seem small on the outside, but it's surprisingly spacious inside. In terms of cargo capacity, it's huge for the class, rivaling that of crossover SUVs. Adding to that the unique flip-up magic rear seat provides a floor-to-ceiling cargo space. And the full [? flat ?] front seat allows for items up to eight feet long. Honda's frustrating touchscreen interface is one of the few drawbacks. But it's probably not a deal-breaker. Its closest competitors are the Kia Soul, Ford Fiesta, and the Ford or Toyota Yaris. But the bottom line is, you can't beat the Fit for versatility on a budget.

More about the 2017 Honda Fit

The 2017 Honda Fit is the smallest car Honda sells in North America and the most efficient one that isn't a hybrid. This isn't a car that's built upon advanced technology or exotic materials, but a cleverly engineered small machine that doesn't feel compromised by its small size.

Going into 2017, the front-wheel-drive Fit is in its 10th year in America. But its heritage actually stretches back to 2001 when it was introduced in Japan. The current Fit is actually in its third generation here in the States, and the current iteration was introduced for the 2015 model year. An all-electric version was offered during 2014, but so far one has not returned to the line.

There are three basic things at which the Fit excels. It gets great fuel mileage, it has plenty of room for passengers, and there's also room for their stuff. The cleverness comes most obviously in the form of the "Magic Seat" feature. That's the rear seat that uses a flip-up bottom cushion to provide a flat cargo space from hatch to front seats that's bigger than that in some of the small crossovers. If the Fit can't haul it, maybe it should just be left where it is.

All Fit models — LX, EX and leather upholstered EX-L — are powered by a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine producing 130 horsepower. The base LX is available with a slick six-speed manual, but most customers will opt for the continuously variable automatic transmission that's standard in all the other models. Even in a car as small and feathery as the Fit, 130 hp isn't a lot. So no one will be intimidated by its acceleration.

But almost everyone can appreciate the Fit's fuel economy. The stingiest is equipped with the CVT transmission and is EPA-rated at 33 mpg in the city and a full 40 mpg on the highway with the combined rating coming at 36 mpg. The manual transmission version drops to 29 mpg in the city, 36 mpg on the highway and 32 mpg combined. Those are pretty impressive numbers for a vehicle that can seat five.

As straightforward as the Fit is, the process of buying a new car can still be a daunting adventure. So use the tools here on Edmunds.com to make the purchasing decisions that are right for you, have a happy buying experience and get a great deal.

Should I lease or buy a 2017 Honda Fit?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
