2016 Honda Fit Review
The subcompact market is a bit of an outlier. Most people like the aspect of driving a smaller car for maneuverability purposes, but tighter cabin space usually outweighs this perk. And we can’t blame shoppers: Who wants to sit with their knees to their chin riding in the back seat?
The 2016 Honda Fit is an all-star subcompact that relies on a different approach to seating and storage to seriously challenge the subcompact notion. Denver, Centennial, and Aurora area interested buyers after a model that brings top fuel efficiency and supreme small car versatility can read Mile High Honda’s review of the 2016 Honda Fit below.
Energetic Inside and Out
From the outside, the Fit reads smart and chic. Cinched-in stylized body lines accent its teardrop shape and your choice of eye-popping metallic primary hues or subdued neutrals allow you to choose the Fit that best represents your style. After its total redesign for the 2015 model year, the 2016 Honda Fit doesn’t receive any major changes this year.
The Honda Fit’s main engine model is a 1.5-liter four-cylinder motor that produces 130 horsepower and is mated to your choice of transmission, either a six-speed manual or an automatic-equivalent continuously variable transmission. Smooth transitions, peppy power, sharp steering, and 33/41 mpg city/highway* makes driving the Fit a joy-filled experience whether you’re zipping around downtown Denver or traveling Aurora’s hilly expanses.
No Need to Squeeze
What doesn’t cease to amaze test drivers again and again is the 2016 Fit’s ultra-roomy seating space that measures in far from what one might expect from a subcompact. And when it comes to cargo versatility, the Fit is considered to have one of the (if not the) most forward-thinking setups.
With the Honda Fit’s Magic Seat, drivers can flip and fold seats to achieve configurations to match just about any combination of passengers and cargo. With all rows unaltered, the Fit has 16.6 cubic feet free behind its back seat. With the backseat tucked away, in what Honda calls Utility Mode, the car has 52.7 cubic feetavailable, a cargo volume that’s totally unmatched for the class. The front passenger seat can even fold down to make room for lengthy items like skis for your next mountain getaway.
More Fun in the Fit
Trimmed in soft-touch fabrics and posh touches, the interior of this city-savvy model is upscale and comfortable. Standard media features equipped in the Fit LX offer everything you need to stay entertained whether you’re driving your daily commute or embarking on a cross-country escape. Base features include a four-speaker audio system, USB audio interface, Bluetooth audio streaming, hands-free phone capability, and a 5-inch color LCD display screen.
In terms of safety, the Honda Fit comes loaded with the protective elements you need to keep you, your travelers, and your cargo safe. And to help the Fit heighten its visibility to other drivers, Honda added extra-bright features to its exterior including LED brake lights, multi-reflector halogen headlights with automatic function, and available integrated turn indicators.
