Introduced in the mid-2000s just as gas prices were beginning to race skyward, the Honda Fit immediately became a hit with frugal car shoppers. A subcompact four-door hatchback, the Honda Fit has earned praise for its engineering and design, and it has found its niche with consumers drawn to its space-efficient design and easily reconfigurable rear seats. With any generation, you'll find crisp handling, solid build quality and impressive cargo capacity. For shoppers needing to carry pets or musical instruments, the Honda Fit represents an almost ideal package.
In reviews, we've found the Honda Fit a pleasure to drive. The car has a solid feel to it, countering the perception of vehicles in this class as tinny econoboxes. Although other hatchbacks might offer a sportier driving experience or slightly better fuel economy, the Fit is a good option for anyone seeking a small car with big-time practicality.
