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.
