2020 Honda Fit Review test and performance
In all reality is this car good looking at all? Probably not as nice as its predecessor sadly enough but times must move on and so does the fit. Its a decent sized small car that was dubbed sporty by Honda. We are not certain sporty fits (pun intended) However it is very practical and does a darn fine driving job.
Ok so it’s not the best look in our ever so humble opinion but it has a place in a line up of new hatchbacks manufactured in Japan. They are all a little generic but that’s Japan for you.
Our test car or rental Honda had a very light-colored interior with very nice seating for both driver and passenger however the passenger seat lacked some adjustments that the driver’s seat had. The interior was surprisingly roomy with lots of glass and few dead spots of any noticeable kind. The car comes with lane and brake assist so it can get busy inside.
It’s a nice layout with an electronic park brake which is a nice touch. The speedo is digital and easily read with lots of information for the driver to absorb. There is not that much else going on with the interior but all is done noticeably well and it’s made to the highest Japanese standards. Our car had traveled only 8,000Klm at test time so it was still nice and tight and had a great new car smell.
You must keep reminding yourself that it is a small car that is basically powered to suit the price, client, and objective design. Overall it did as asked but there was a definite lag in initial acceleration and it was just slow. There were zero urgency through the CVT gear changes whatsoever which left you wanting that little more.
Let’s be honest though. It’s a superb town car that will do exactly as asked. Just don’t ask too much if you want to get somewhere fast..
