2016 Honda Fit – A Well-Coordinated and Responsive Car
Compact, yet Fashionable
Marketed as the “Honda Jazz”, the Fit is a front-wheel-drive subcompact car that made its first appearance in 2001. The vehicle is a smaller version of Honda’s famous sedan, the Civic. It features a one-box, mono-space packaging concept and is one of the brand’s most practical vehicles by design. Currently in its third generation, the 2016 model has built a strong reputation for reliability, durability, and affordability. New upgrades with regards to its aesthetically pleasing hatchback design include more detailed and aerodynamic styling cues, a stronger grille, fog lights attached to the front bumper, and headlights with auto-on/off feature, all of which give the all-new 2016 Honda Fit a ton of personality.
Smooth and Fun to Drive
The 2016 Honda Fit perfectly captures the entertaining road manners and precise feel most buyers are looking for when purchasing a sub-compact vehicle. In fact, the new model comes with even better fuel economy and stronger acceleration that was previously missing in older Fit models – drawing its power from a new 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine with Direct Injection that can produce 114 pound-feet of torque and 130 horsepower.
The model also comes with two transmission options: a six-speed manual transmission and CVT. Thee manual comes with a divine shift-lever action and clutch uptake that makes it worth the buy and drive. The linkage is also more precise, shorter, and smoother, delivering exceptional gear ratios that are hard to find in similarly sized vehicles on the market. The CVT, on the other hand, is more improved than ever and also features a Sport Mode that lets the driver click through seven gears and reach amazing speeds.

To top it off, the Fit comes with exceptional crash-test scores making it one of the safest small hatchbacks available today.
