Which Used Honda Fit Trim Is Right for Me?

The 2019 Honda Fit comes in four trim levels: LX, Sport, EX, and EX-L. All models feature a four-cylinder engine and front-wheel drive. A six-speed manual transmission is standard, and a continuously variable automatic (CVT) is available in the first three trims and standard in the EX-L. Skip the base model and its short list of features and go with one of the higher trims, which have touch-screen infotainment systems with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. To guarantee driver assistance equipment beyond a rearview camera, you'll need to spring for at least an EX model. However, you can find features such as automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist, and adaptive cruise control in some lower trims with the CVT.

  • Honda Fit LX: Standard features in the Honda Fit LX include cloth upholstery, a multi-angle rearview camera, and an infotainment system with a 5-inch display, a four-speaker stereo, Bluetooth, and a USB port.
  • Honda Fit Sport: The Fit Sport comes with a 7-inch touch screen, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, an additional USB port, a six-speaker stereo, alloy wheels, fog lights, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.
  • Honda Fit EX: The Honda Fit EX adds a moonroof, proximity keyless entry, push-button start, and satellite radio. It also gains active safety features including forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, road departure mitigation, automatic high-beam headlights, lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, and the LaneWatch blind spot camera.
  • Honda Fit EX-L: The Fit EX-L includes leather upholstery, heated front seats, and heated outside mirrors. Navigation and HD Radio are available.

What Does Honda's Certified Pre-Owned Warranty Cover?

Honda offers two levels of certification for its certified pre-owned vehicles: HondaTrue Certified and HondaTrue Certified+. Both levels come with a seven-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, roadside assistance, up to two oil changes within the first year of ownership, and a 90-day SiriusXM satellite radio trial subscription.

The vehicle’s model year determines which program and repair coverage it qualifies for. HondaTrue Certified covers vehicles from the 2015 through 2020 model years. For vehicles still under the new-car warranty, Honda extends coverage to four years from the original sale date or 48,000 miles. For vehicles outside the new-car warranty, Honda offers a one-year/12,000-mile limited warranty. HondaTrue Certified+ is for 2019 to 2020 Hondas still under the new-car warranty. Honda extends these warranties to five years from the original sale date or 86,000 miles. Additional benefits may be available, so read Honda’s warranty page carefully.

According to our analysis, Honda’s CPO program is better than that offered by many other affordable carmakers. Still, Chevrolet, Kia, and Hyundai have better programs.

2019 Honda Fit Versus the Competition

Which Is Better: 2019 Honda Fit or 2019 Toyota Yaris?

The 2019 Toyota Yaris is a solid, midpack subcompact car, but it's not as good as the Fit. The Honda has a roomier back seat and a lot more cargo space. The Fit also has available Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, which aren’t offered in the Yaris. With only a little more than 100 horsepower, the Yaris has even worse acceleration than the Fit. The Honda has a higher safety score, and it offers several more active safety features than the Toyota. Stick with the Fit.

Which Is Better: 2019 Honda Fit or 2019 Nissan Versa?

The Honda Fit is a much better car than the lower-ranked 2019 Nissan Versa. The Versa has a cheap-feeling interior full of hard plastics, and it suffers from one of the lowest safety scores in the class. Additionally, the Versa Note's hatchback body style has far less maximum cargo space than the Fit's total capacity. You'll also find livelier handling and better fuel economy with the Fit. The main advantage the Nissan offers is affordability; it has one of the lowest average prices in the segment.

2019 Fit Performance

How Does the 2019 Honda Fit Drive?

The Honda Fit's four-cylinder engine is nicely suited for city driving, but it feels sluggish when you accelerate hard, such as when merging onto a highway or overtaking cars at higher speeds. The six-speed manual transmission helps you control power output better than the available continuously variable automatic, which makes the engine drone loudly.

Handling is a better aspect of this little Honda's performance. The Fit takes curves with agility, while remaining composed and providing good steering feedback. The suspension is a little stiff, but the Fit rides smoothly over most roads.

  • Base engine: 130-horsepower 1.5-liter four-cylinder
  • Drivetrain: front-wheel drive
  • Transmission: standard six-speed manual; available continuously variable automatic (CVT)
Does the 2019 Honda Fit Get Good Gas Mileage?

The 2019 Fit returns excellent fuel economy for a subcompact car. With the CVT, the Fit gets an EPA-rated 33 mpg in the city and 40 mpg on the highway. With the manual transmission, the car gets 29 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway.

2019 Fit Interior

How Many People Does the 2019 Fit Seat?

The 2019 Fit seats five people in two rows. The front seats are comfortable, and though it doesn't offer many seating adjustments, it's still easy to find a relaxing driving position. There's also an impressive amount of rear legroom for a subcompact car, allowing tall adults to ride in the back with little issue. The Fit boasts a pleasing design, as well as plenty of quality cabin materials that make it one of the most upscale cars in the class.

Standard seating features:

  • Cloth upholstery

Available seating features:

  • Leather upholstery
  • Heated front seats
  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel
How Many Child Car Seats Fit in the 2019 Honda Fit?

The 2019 Fit has two complete sets of LATCH car-seat connectors for the rear outboard seats and an upper tether for the rear middle seat. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave this LATCH system the second-highest rating of Acceptable for ease of use. The lower anchors are set deeply in the seats, and you might confuse other hardware for the top tether anchors.

2019 Honda Fit Features

The Honda Fit's available touch-screen infotainment system has impressive graphics and a straightforward menu structure. A dedicated volume knob separates this Fit (and the 2018 model) from earlier versions that used touch-sensitive sliding controls that could be cumbersome to use. There aren't many other physical knobs or controls, but the few that are there are large and distinct.

  • Standard infotainment features: a 5-inch display, a four-speaker stereo, Bluetooth, and a USB port
  • Available infotainment features: a 7-inch touch screen, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, an additional USB port, a six-speaker stereo, navigation, satellite radio, and HD Radio
  • Other available features: a moonroof, proximity keyless entry, and push-button start
