The 2018 gets driver aids and smartphone connectivity

The Honda Fit is a small but surprisingly roomy hatchback with the kind of cargo versatility that can put an SUV to shame. The Fit’s rear seats can be folded down to open up a massive space, and the front seat can be folded flat to fit longer items. The rear seat can also be folded up, giving you another storage option in the second row. All this in a compact package 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 fueleconomy.gov. The Fit isn’t a quick car, and the interior materials are basic but sturdy.

For 2018, Honda revised the Fit’s exterior looks, added more sound insulation to make the cabin quieter, and refined the suspension and steering to improve handling. Additionally, a new touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ became available, along with driver aids like adaptive cruise control. Unfortunately, blind-spot monitoring isn’t an option, and higher trims have to make do with Honda’s LaneWatch™ side-view camera system.

5 reasons to buy the 2018 Honda Fit

What We Like

Passenger space: Often vehicles as small as the Fit lose out on passenger space, but the Fit’s almost SUV-like seating arrangements mean there’s space for adults both front and back, and they won’t have any trouble climbing in. Just be aware that people over six feet may want to stick to the front seats.

Cargo versatility: The Fit’s best trick is just how much stuff you can fit into it, and multiple configurations make it possible to fit longer items than even much larger vehicles can carry. Nothing else packs as much cargo room into a vehicle that can fit in such a small parking space as the Honda Fit.

Available tech: For 2018, Honda added Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to 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: Having driver aids at all is notable for a budget-minded hatchback from this era, but it’s worth noting that adaptive cruise only works above about 34 mph, and without blind-spot monitoring, you’re stuck with a camera system that shows an only somewhat-helpful view of your blind spot.
