2018 Honda Fit Interior Review

Note: This interior review was created when the 2018 Honda Fit was new.


Interior: 8.5

The interior is where the 2018 Honda Fit really shines. Its passenger seats are spacious, there's a ton of cargo room available, and its inventive rear seat (which has multiple configurations) gives you more hauling options than most subcompact cars. All but the base model have smartphone integration, and advanced safety features are available in every trim.

  • "Soft-touch materials and silver accent trim definitely make it feel more expensive than its price." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "The Fit may not be as comfy or as upscale as its bigger Honda siblings, but interior materials are still a cut above the rest. The cabin even looks pretty cool, especially with the available touchscreen interface." -- Autotrader (2017)


There are five seats inside a Fit. Headroom is plentiful all-around, and the car's generous passenger space means two adults can ride contentedly in the rear seat. The Fit comes standard with cloth upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and a split-folding rear seat. Upgrades include leather upholstery and heated front seats.

For child safety seats, the Fit comes with two sets of lower anchors and three tether anchors. The LATCH hardware isn't the easiest to use. The lower anchors are mounted deep in the seat cushions, which makes them tricky to find and requires extra effort to clip in a seat. The tether anchor for the middle seat is located in the ceiling, and attaching a seat here partially obstructs the view out the rear of the car.

  • "Four adults fit without effort. The driver's seat doesn't provide the combination of seat height and thigh support that I prefer, but when I consider such a complaint, I must remember that getting a leather-wrapped tilt/telescopic steering wheel and a seat height adjuster in such an inexpensive car is something of a miracle." -- New York Daily News
  • "The rest of the cabin stands pat, and that's more than fine. The flexible interior, with its multiple backseat configurations and copious headroom for all occupants, is a favorite of mine in this segment. The Fit is one of the few with a backseat I'd feel comfortable asking adults to sit in for an extended period." -- Cars.com
  • "The new Fit seats five and there's room in back for tall adults." -- Kelley Blue Book

Interior Features

The base trim of the 2018 Fit comes with a multiview rearview camera, a 5-inch display screen, four speakers, Bluetooth, and a USB port. All other trims get an upgraded infotainment system that features a 7-inch touch screen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Pandora compatibility, HondaLink (for additional smartphone integration), and six speakers. Other optional features include a moonroof, a navigation system (with voice recognition), satellite radio, HD Radio, push-button start, forward collision warning, lane departure warning, a collision mitigation braking system, a road departure mitigation system, lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, Honda LaneWatch, and a proximity key with walk-away auto lock.

The Fit's infotainment interface has a clean look, straightforward menus, and a few handy knobs that make it even easier to use. With the exception of the entry-level trim, the Fit comes nicely equipped with user favorites such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Also worth calling out is the impressive amount of advanced safety features available in this car.

  • "Addressing two of our chief complaints is a new 7.0-inch Display Audio infotainment system that comes standard on Sport, EX, and EX-L models. Finally, it offers Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, and even better, the volume knob is back." -- Car and Driver
  • "A new infotainment system debuts for 2018. Standard in Sport, EX, and EX-L trims, the Display Audio system gains a volume knob as well as smartphone projection support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Improved graphics are also a part of the upgrade for 2018. Too bad Honda continues to offer LaneWatch in the freshened Fit, instead of a proper blind-spot warning system with rear cross-traffic alert." -- New York Daily News
  • "The touchscreen's response time and swipe-and-pinch functionality are great." -- Edmunds (2017)


The Fit has a 16.6-cubic-foot hatchback, and you can lay the rear seat flat to create 52.7 cubic feet of cargo space. The back seat, dubbed the Magic Seat, does much more than just fold flat with a 60/40 split. The seat cushions can be folded up (to haul tall items), and the front passenger seat can be folded flat (to haul extra-long gear or create a bed for a rear-seat passenger).

  • "Inside, the Fit's generous people accommodation and cargo space are its greatest selling points. This is [a] roomy little car with a clever back-seat design Honda calls the Magic Seat. Split 60/40, the Fit's back seat doesn't just fold flat, you can also flip up the seat bottoms to carry tall objects, like a mountain bike." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "Rear passengers will enjoy plenty of room, and even with four bodies aboard, the Fit supplies 16.6 cu.-ft. of trunk space. The rear seat cushions continue to flip up in order to carry tall items, and fold flat in order to create a 52.7 cu.-ft. cube-shaped cargo area. That's as much as some small crossover SUVs provide." -- New York Daily News
  • "Along with a sophisticated-looking gauge cluster, there's the Fit's trademark 60/40 split rear Magic Seat, which lets you flip the lower cushion up to carry taller items or flop the seatback down, extending the Fit's heroically low and flat cargo floor." -- Car and Driver
