Review: 2015 Honda Fit

The 2015 Honda Fit is a brand new redesign inside and out, nothing like the Honda Fit you’re used to. But it still has that world-famous cargo space capabilities, high MPG and everything else that makes this the perfect vehicle for any urban commuter.

SO WHAT’S NEW

Everything is new with the 2015 Honda Fit. Honda took the year off in 2014 to completely rebuild the new one, giving it a more grown up, refined look. The new Fit has an updated front fascia with a new thin, aggressive front grille and thin front headlines. New leading lines and refined edges across the side and down the back of the new Fit give it that more aggressive look and in the rear the Fit gets new thin vertical tail lights and an optional rear spoiler for the first time.

VEHICLE BROCHURE: 2015 HONDA FIT 

The Fit looks bigger, but it’s actually slightly shorter, but the wider wheelbase give you more legroom on the inside.

The Fit is completely updated under the hood as well, with new optional direct engine technology that is a perfect blend of power and fuel economy. The Fit now also offers a 6-speed manual transmission or a new CVT. Combined MPG ranges from 32-36 MPG, depending on the model you pick.

THE MAGIC SEAT 

But the Fit is famous for its ability to fit basically anything or anyone inside.  The 2015 Honda Fit features the “magic seat” with plenty of options for space and people. So let’s break down all the options for your Fit, one by one:

1. To start with, the 2015 Honda Fit offers room for five to fit comfortably inside, and five adults will be able to fit comfortably for a summer road trip.

2. With all the seats up, you’ll fit 16.6 cubic feet of cargo, and Honda says that with five people in the car, you can still fit four pieces of luggage in the trunk area.

3. The Fit offers a utility mode, offering you 52.7 cubic feet of cargo space when the magic seat is completely folded down. For example, a full-size bike can fit inside with the magic seat folded completely down.

4. The Fit’s long mode offers you 7 feet, 9 inches of wide storage, folding down 40% of the rear seat and the passenger’s front seat. For example, in long mode you can fit a full-sized surfboard and all the luggage you’ll need for the beach.

5. In tall mode, there are 47 inches of vertical cargo space available. For example, a full-sized potted plant would be comfortable to store.

6. Your passengers are going to love the available refresh mode. They can sit in the back seat and completely fold down the passenger’s seat, turning it into a makeshift lounger

SAFETY FIRST

The 2015 Honda Fit is an IIHS Top Safety Pick, one of only two cars in the “minicar” class to receive this highest score. Learn more about this award.

The Fit received the Top Safety Pick Award in part to the great technology options, including a n optional multi-angle rearview camera that gives you the view you need when backing up into a tight space — choose between wide view, normal view or overhead view to always park safely. Optional Honda LaneWatch that was previously available on Civic and Accord models is now available on the 2015 Honda Fit. Where we once had the backup camera, we now have the blindspot camera, where when you put on the turn signal or push a button, the center console will show you what’s happening on your right side.

The 2015 Honda Fit also offers a Tire Pressure Monitoring System, Daytime Running Lights, Anti-lock brakes and more to keep you safe on the road at all times.

WHAT OTHER’S ARE SAYING 

 Kelley Blue Book:

“The 2015 Fit is affordable, easy to drive and can haul as much as a compact SUV. Perfect for off-to-college youngsters or empty nesters looking to downsize without sacrificing rear-seat legroom, the Honda hatchback offers new safety and connectivity features you’d expect in class-above vehicles like the Dodge Dart and Mazda3.”

The Car Connection: 

“The 2015 Honda Fit might not up the ante in sportiness, but it offers up exactly what urban small-car shoppers want in safety and convenience features—and it’s still as good as some utility vehicles or vans with its wondrous, unmatched Magic Seat setup.”

ABC News:

“Fans of Honda’s innovative and spacious Fit hatchback will love what the car becomes for 2015 — quieter inside, more powerful and yet more fuel efficient, more refined in its ride, roomier and better equipped.”

Edmunds:

“The 2015 Honda Fit has a composure at freeway speeds that was lacking in the outgoing car. Directional stability is far better, so it’s much easier to keep the car in a lane. It’s also notably quieter at those higher speeds, making long trips more enjoyable. The 2015 Fit feels sharper and more confident when going around turns compared to its predecessor.”

AutoBlog:

“In a class where cars have to be everything to everyone, you could certainly do a lot worse than this capacious little Honda.”

So as you can see, the Fit is the perfect choice for the driver who needs space, high MPG and everything else offered in the modern vehicle.
