This is the fourth year in a row the Honda Fit has claimed the Best Resale Value Award crown among subcompact cars. In addition to basking in the halo of Honda's renowned reputation for delivering trouble-free transportation, the automaker's most affordable entry is remarkably roomy and flexible, offers plenty of top technology and is even a little bit fun to drive.
Rear-seat passengers will be pleasantly surprised by the Fit's generous headroom and legroom, but the Fit is even more impressive as a cargo hauler. The second-row "Magic Seat" doesn't just flip down to create an expansive cargo hold: the seat cushions can also fold up to create a floor-to-ceiling space for taller items. Even the front passenger seat is part of the magic with its ability to fold back, creating space for long items like a surfboard or, with the rear seatback up, an impromptu chaise lounge.
And the Honda Fit has been made even better for 2018, as detailed in our full review: "Improved with a retuned suspension, a quieter interior and new safety and in-cabin technology -- including available Apple CarPlay and Android Auto -- the 2018 Honda Fit is a fun, fuel-efficient and affordable subcompact with class-leading versatility. Honda calls it the 5-door car with attitude. We call it the yardstick against which all other subcompacts are measured, including the Toyota Yaris, Hyundai Accent, Ford Fiesta, Nissan Versa and Chevy Sonic."
With prices that start just a tick above $17,000 and top out around $22,000 for a leather-lined version with navigation, the 2018 Honda Fit is a great value right out of the gate.
