2009 Honda Fit - Overview

Efficient meets cool. All over again.

A spacious, versatile interior and premium features in a compact, affordable, fuel-efficient package made the original Fit a huge success. The all-new Fit is even better. Outstanding fuel economy makes it affordable and environmentally responsible. It's even more spacious, and more powerful, with a super-efficient new 1.5-liter i-VTEC engine. The Magic Seat® now dives down at the flip of a single lever, and flexible interior configurations help you get it all done. Honda's Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure and other advanced safety features help protect vehicle occupants and provide injury mitigation for pedestrians. And with its super-forward aero-form design, the new Fit has a cool new look. It's already won awards and fans all over the world, but the Fit is not standing still. The ideal small car just got better.
