2013 Honda Fit Overview

Is the 2013 Honda Fit a Good Used Car?

A used 2013 Honda Fit is an excellent choice in the subcompact car class. Its interior has plenty of room for five occupants, while sharp, precise steering makes it a joy to drive. When the 2013 Fit was new, we named it our 2013 Best Subcompact Car for the Money and 2013 Best Hatchback for the Money. Still, some competitors get better safety scores and have more commanding engines.

Used 2013 Honda Fit Performance and Interior

Powered by a 117-horsepower four-cylinder engine, the 2013 Honda Fit struggles when trying to pass cars or travel up steep hills. Additionally, the brakes aren’t as strong as those in rivals like the Kia Rio. A five-speed manual transmission is standard, but some models have a five-speed automatic. Models with the manual transmission are more energetic than models with the automatic. Handling is adept – especially in the Sport trim – and the Fit maintains composure during cornering maneuvers. This Honda delivers 27-28 mpg in the city and 33-35 mpg on the highway, which is good for the class.

The Fit seats five in two rows of roomy seats, and a high seating position in the first and second rows provides a commanding view of the road. Head- and legroom are abundant in both rows, which means adults should have no problem fitting in the back seats. However, the Fit suffers from a firm ride, and competitors like the Kia Rio have more refined interiors. Nonetheless, cargo space is plentiful. The 60/40-split-folding rear Magic Seat folds up or flat to accommodate your cargo needs. There are two sets of LATCH car-seat connectors on the outboard rear seats, as well as an upper tether on the middle seat.

The Fit has a limited standard features list, which includes a USB port, a four-speaker audio system, and cruise control. Some models come with a navigation system, Bluetooth, voice recognition, a six-speaker audio system, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

Is the 2013 Fit the Best Model Year to Buy?

The 2013 Honda Fit is the last model year of a generation that started in 2009. No major changes were made between 2012 and 2013, which means you can probably get similar features for less money by choosing a used 2012 Fit. The 2012 Fit introduced available Bluetooth and navigation. If those features aren’t important to you, you can opt for a used 2011 model to reduce your costs even further.

Which Used Honda Fit Is Right for Me?

The Fit comes in two trims: base and Sport. The base trim doesn’t come with much, so you’re better off going for the higher trim. When the 2013 Honda Fit was new, a navigation system was optional in the Sport trim.

Even though the Fit gets a great reliability score, you might consider a certified pre-owned model. Honda extends its original new-car limited powertrain warranty to seven years or 100,000 miles for all certified pre-owned models, and it extends the new-car non-powertrain warranty to four years or 48,000 miles. If the CPO Honda you purchase is more than four years old or has more than 48,000 miles, you’ll receive a one-year/12,000-mile non-powertrain limited warranty. Honda CPO vehicles must pass a 182-point inspection. Additional benefits like towing and roadside assistance may be available, so read Honda’s warranty page carefully.

2013 Honda Fit and Other Cars to Consider

Which Is Better: 2013 Honda Fit or 2013 Toyota Yaris?

Just like the Fit, the 2013 Toyota Yaris has an excellent reliability rating (4.5 out of five) and plenty of rear-seat legroom. The Toyota’s interior, however, is made of low-end materials. Its automatic transmission also isn’t the best; the Yaris struggles to get up to highway speeds. Still, its fuel economy (30/36 mpg city/highway) beats the Fit’s. The Honda is the superior car overall, but the Toyota will cost you less over the long haul.

Which Is Better: 2013 Honda Fit or 2013 Kia Rio?

The 2013 Kia Rio has plenty of power for day-to-day driving, an attractive cabin, and a rearview camera in some models (not available in the Fit). Still, the Fit has more cargo space and a higher reliability score. The Fit is the better option, but you’re likely to pay a few thousand dollars more for a used model.
