Honda Fit Overview
The Honda Fit is classed as a supermini which is produced by the Japanese automobile manufacturing company Honda. This vehicle has been in production since 2001 and is also known as the Honda Jazz, depending on which market. It is known as the Fit in China, Japan, North and South America and as the Jazz elsewhere. These cars are very spacious despite their small appearance and they are also very reliable. They have good safety features but lack refinement and the handling is pretty poor. They are very practical, hold their price and are cheap to run, but they are not that well equipped. Does this sound anything like your experience of this vehicle?
Honda Fit History
The first generation (2001-08) was introduced in 2001 and was very successful in Japan. It soon overtook the top selling Toyota Corolla and the large amount of space in the rear of the cabin due to the design of the car was a huge part of this success. This car is built on the same platform as the Honda City, using the global Honda small car platform. This vehicle was produced in six different locations around the world to meet demand.
The second generation (2008-present) was a slightly larger version, being both wider and longer than its predecessor. This latest version also improved on some previous features that were lacking, such as the ride and handling. This is the current version on the market.
The Honda Fit is available in 1.3 or 1.5L petrol engines and a 1.3L hybrid engine. The 1.3L hybrid is the most economical, offering around 62mpg with the same sized petrol engine offering around 54mpg. Which engine do you have and how does it perform economically? The age, fuel type and engine size are determining factors when considering fuel economy.
The Honda Fit is available in 5-speed manual, 5-speed automatic and CVT gearboxes. Which gearbox do you have and how do you rate its performance? If you are needing Fit gearbox parts then why not check out our Honda gearbox section today.
