Car names often consist of seemingly random words or alphanumeric jumbles, but the 2016 Honda Fit proves that literalism has its place. If there’s one thing this Honda is known for, after all, it’s the incredible amount of stuff you can fit inside its pint-sized hatchback body. Today’s Fit also has more rear legroom than ever, and it’s got a respectable roster of standard and optional technology, too. Throw in excellent fuel economy and you’ve got a uniquely talented vehicle that offers great value in this segment.
You’ll be amazed by how much gear you can load into the pint-sized 2016 Honda Fit.
As ever, one of the Fit’s standout features is its so-called “Magic Seat,” a uniquely constructed rear seat that includes a flip-up seat bottom to facilitate hauling behind the front seatbacks. Alternatively, you can leave that seat bottom down and fold the rear seatbacks forward, which opens up a cargo hold that’ll give some small crossovers a run for their money. If you’re upgrading from an older Fit model, you’ll likely be impressed by newly available upgrades like leather upholstery and keyless ignition. Happily, core Fit features such as nimble handling and excellent visibility remain present and accounted for.
With the rear seats folded down, the Fit has as much cargo room as many crossovers.
There’s nothing else quite like the Fit on the market.
