2009 Honda Fit - Utility
An interior environment as convenient as it is spacious
The new Fit's interior is not just more spacious, it's more convenient as well. The 60/40 split Magic Seat® is now even more convenient, with a one-motion dive-down mechanism that allows the rear seats to be folded down with the flip of a lever. And there are four versatile interior configurations to choose from.
• Improved 60/40 split Magic Seat® with one-motion dive-down mechanism NEW
• Full complement of storage pockets, compartments and beverage holders
Storage spaces and beverage holders
The Fit interior provides lots of convenient storage spaces, including 10 beverage holders and a range of pockets and compartments in the instrument panel, center console, doors and seatbacks.
Magic Seat® with one-motion dive-down mechanism
The central feature of Fit's unique and versatile interior is its exclusive 60/40 split Magic Seat®, made possible by the centrally mounted fuel tank and H-shaped torsion beam suspension. In the new Fit, the rear seats feature a one-motion dive-down mechanism that allows the rear seats to be folded down with the flip of a lever, regardless of the position of the front seat. This is possible thanks to the new Fit's longer wheelbase, which allows for more space separating front and rear passengers, along with left and right rear headrests that fit snuggly into the seatbacks. When loading large items, the seats can be operated directly from the luggage compartment, eliminating the need to go around to the rear seat. Just pull the lever on the seatbacks and they return to upright positions in a single motion.
