The 2010 Honda Fit
is a four-door subcompact that offers Base and Sport trims and several optional packages. Equipped with a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine, the Honda Fit is available with either a five-speed manual or automatic transmission. The Sport trim comes with a five-speed automatic transmission standard and paddle shifters or five-speed manual transmission are available.
Known for its nimble handling, the Fit has Honda's Magic Seat, a second row seat that folds three different ways to improve cargo capacity. The Honda Fit also has a greater cargo capacity than you might think because the fuel tanks are located beneath the front seats to ensure a flat cargo space. With top safety ratings scores, the Fit is a safe small car, but its fuel economy rated at 28 mpg city/35 mpg highway does not compare well to its rivals.
New for 2010
Since the new generation Honda Fit made its debut in 2009, the 2010 base model received no updates. However, the Fit Sport trim received 16-inch alloy wheels, a rear roof spoiler, exterior chrome highlights, VSA stability control, and floor mats. Optional are five-speed transmissions, in either manual or automatic, for both Base and Sport trims.
Engine: 1.5L I-4
Transmissions: 5-speed manual, 5-speed automatic
Body Style: Four-door hatchback
Trims: Base Hatchback, Sport Hatchback
On the Outside
A cute, practically designed subcompact, the 2010 Honda Fit maximizes space with an expansive greenhouse and short nose. The Sport trim is distinguished by larger wheels and chrome bits to spice it up.
From the Inside
The 2010 Fit is equipped with Honda's patented "Magic Seat" second row seat that folds three different ways for increased cargo area. The Base trim comes with air conditioning, power windows, mirrors and doors, while the Sport trim boasts navigation and USB port accessibility.
Quick and nimble on the road, the 2010 Fit feels faster than it actually is and does well on twisty roads, especially with the Sport trim's 5-speed manual transmission. The Honda Fit's 117 horsepower four-cylinder is pretty peppy, but fuel economy does not compare favorably to the newer subcompacts.
Standard safety features on the Honda Fit include dual front and side curtain airbags, active head restraints, and antilock disc brakes. The Fit Sport trim comes with stability and traction control.
