New For 2013

Honda added an all-electric Fit EV in select markets and replaced orange burst metallic paint with midnight plum pearl.


It’s rare when you find a car that combines driving pleasure, great fuel economy, and utility at a price that makes it seem like an incredible bargain. Granted, the Fit is quite small, but its high roof gives it the look and feel of a small minivan. The rear Magic Seat folds eight ways to Sunday and, combined with that high roof, creates a versatile cargo area that measures 57.3 cubic feet behind the rear seats—more than in the Crosstour. The Fit’s 117-hp, 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine isn’t overly powerful, but it is willing to rev and is efficient, returning up to 35 mpg on the highway. It can be paired with a manual or an automatic transmission, both with five forward speeds. The Sport model has steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters that help you get the most out of the automatic. If that powertrain isn’t green enough for you, Honda is offering an all-electric Fit EV only to lessees in select markets (initially in California and Oregon, expanding to six east-coast areas in 2013) that delivers 123 hp and the equivalent of 118 mpg. Both electric and gasoline vehicles provide the Fit’s signature package of convenience and driving prowess.


Front, side, and side curtain air bags are standard, as are ABS, traction and stability control, and a tire-pressure monitoring system.
