2017 Honda Fit interior

The updated interior of the Fit is spacious and well-appointed, although the luggage carrying area has lost a bit of volume. While it may be difficult to see many changes inside, particularly in the dash area, the little Honda is packed with technology; multifunction media system with Bluetooth connectivity and a USB port.

It is also worth noting that smartphone connectivity is easy and can be used for navigation, although of course it doesn’t have to be a smart phone; any android device will work.

Overall, the style (interior and exterior) of the Fit is unmistakably Honda; the interior is very similar to that of the Accord and the Civic.

The little Honda seems to be more of a hatchback rather than MPV, but the MPV market is more demanding and popular.

2017 Honda Fit redesign

With a large windshield and small hood, the visibility at the front is excellent, the whole front end has had some restyling, including new fog lights, aerodynamic styling, new headlights and a restyled front grille in the shape of aircraft wings.

Although the roof-line is low, perhaps a little too low at the rear, entrance to the vehicle is easy thanks to the large doors. The rear tailgate is also pretty sizeable, giving a practical feel to the vehicle.

Under the hood, a new 1.5 liter, 4-cylinder engine gives up to 130 BHP, driving either a manual transmission or CVT.
