2009 Honda Fit - Fun Functional
With its compact body and nimble handling, the new Fit is the ideal car for city living. Ample visibility both front and rear helps make navigation in tight quarters easier, and the versatile Magic Seat® gives the customer plenty of space to bring along an extra set of wheels. For commuting or going out for a night on the town, this car gets you there with economy and style.
Ever tried to get a plant into your trunk? If you have, you'll know that a big problem with shopping can be getting everything home. The new Fit's cargo area gives you all the room you need - and its wide-opening hatch with a low, 24-inch sill makes it easy to load it all in.
Stuff comes in all shapes and sizes. The Fit is designed to handle it. The ingenious Magic Seat® folds down at the touch of a lever to give you more than 57.3 cubic feet of carrying capacity. Fit in all your camping gear, bicycles, golf clubs, sound equipment, life jackets, paddles and everything else you need to make your weekend complete. And when you fold the front passenger seat all the way down, you'll be surprised at the long objects this car can handle - like a 7-foot, 9-inch surboard.
What do you look for in a car when planning a trip? The power to pass on the highway. A spacious, quiet interior with all the right comforts. Plenty of room for luggage. How about fuel economy to keep your expenses down? The new Fit offers all that and more. Its new, more powerful 1.5-liter i-VTEC engine delivers up to 35 mpg on the highway when matched with the available automatic transmission.
