The 2020 Honda Fit is the last year for this practical hatchback

The Honda Fit packs SUV-level cargo versatility into a small hatchback. Folding down the rear seats opens a massive cargo space, and the front seat can be folded flat as well for longer items. You can also fold the rear seat cushions up, like you can in some pickup trucks, for another great storage option. That gives you a lot of ways to haul a lot of stuff in a small car that gets an EPA-estimated 31 mpg combined. Fuel economy figures are based on EPA estimates for when vehicle sold as new. Fuel economy may vary for reasons like driving conditions and vehicle history. Unless specified, figures are for vehicles equipped with an automatic transmission. See The Fit isn’t quick by any measure, and the interior materials are pretty utilitarian, but this car’s focus is definitely more on practicality.

2020 was the final year Honda sold the Fit in the United States. The similarly-equipped (and similarly practical) Honda HR-V is another option if you’re looking for a more recent small Honda.

5 reasons to buy the 2020 Honda Fit

What We Like

Passenger space: The Fit’s upright seating arrangement makes getting in and out easy and creates enough space for adults both front and back. Passengers over six feet may want to stick to the front seats, though.

Cargo versatility: With multiple configurations that let you store bulkier and longer items, the Fit’s ability to haul stuff is definitely its best trick. It’s doubly impressive considering the Honda Fit’s compact size.

Available tech: You can get Apple CarPlay® and Android Autoon all but the base LX trim. Forward collision warning with emergency automatic braking and adaptive cruise control are standard on any Fit equipped with an automatic transmission.

What Needs Improvement

Driver aid limitations: We appreciate that the Fit offers driver aids at all, but they won’t live up to everyone’s expectations. Adaptive cruise only works above about 34 mph, and instead of blind-spot monitoring, the Fit has a camera system that shows a moderately-useful view of your blind spot.
