Honda smartly refuses to mess with a good thing, and the 2017 Fit is virtually unchanged from last year, which was virtually unchanged from its predecessor as well. The lone change is a new shade of silver paint.
Honda Fit is all-new for 2015. Perhaps the biggest change for the 5-door hatchback is a 4.8-inch increase in backseat legroom thanks to both a longer wheelbase and the repositioning of the rear 60/40 split folding seat.
About Honda Fit
The 2017 Honda Fit is the perfect example of how today's subcompact cars offer a lot more than basic transportation. Of course it nails the basics: Its so-called Magic Seat makes it easy for owners to maximize cargo space, but still allows for a generous rear seat; the 4-cylinder engine and continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) guarantee good fuel economy; there are plenty of high-tech options. But it's the light weight, brisk acceleration, sharp steering and nicely balanced suspension that give the 2017 Fit its primary edge over rivals like the Nissan Versa Note, Kia Rio and Hyundai Accent: Unlike those cars, the 2017 Honda Fit is actually fun to drive.
