KBB Expert Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By Keith Buglewicz


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.

You'll Like This Car If...

Whether you're a college student first starting off, an empty-nester looking to downsize, or just want an inexpensive new car with all of today's connectivity, the 2017 Honda Fit has you covered. It offers excellent front- and rear-seat room, combined with great cargo utility and a fun-to-drive character.

You May Not Like This Car If...

All this goodness comes at a slight price premium compared to many of its competitors. It's also better equipped than its rivals, but it's worth noting in this price-sensitive segment. Additionally, it comes only in hatchback form (for now), leaving sedan shoppers out in the cold.

What's New for 2017

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.

Driving It Driving Impressions

The 2017 Honda Fit isn't fun to drive because it has gobs of horsepower or neck-straining handling. Instead, it's just how the whole thing works together. The suspension offers up the kind of predictable handling you'd expect, but with a sharpness that you don't, and it combines with good-feeling steering and the responsive engine to make this little subcompact genuinely entertaining in sharp corners. While all three models -- LX, EX and EX-L -- offer the same engine and transmission packages, the 16-inch wheels and lower-profile tires on EX and EX-L models, thanks to a stiffer structure and improved suspension, mean they both handle just as well as the previous-generation's Sport model. Yet around town, picking up groceries, or just slogging through traffic, the Fit still leads the pack in utility, and it's that combination that makes the Fit so endearing.

Favorite Features

MAGIC SEAT
Technically it's not magic, but it's shorter than "Cleverly Engineered Space-Saving Seat That Sacrifices Neither Cargo nor Passenger Space for the Sake of the Other Seat." You can fold the seatbacks down and get a flat floor, or flip up the seat bottom and carry tall objects, like a Great Dane.

MOTION ADAPTIVE ELECTRIC POWER STEERING
One of the 2017 Fit's high-tech features is Motion-Adaptive Electric Power Steering. It combines vehicle speed, steering angle and Vehicle Stability Assist, to determine if the Fit is sliding from its intended path, and then uses steering force to prompt the driver to take corrective action.
