2010 Honda Fit makes its debut

Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

This is the 2010 Honda Fit, the five-door fuel-efficient and fun-to-drive small sporty car, which truly takes after its name and could "fit anything." It's interesting how it's compact on the outside and yet, it's incredibly spacious inside. Using multifunctional interior and high levels of refinement, the car offers multiple seating and cargo-carrying configurations.

For excellent outward visibility, the exterior design has a "super-forward aero-form" that contributes to its aggressive, sporty stance. The 1.5-liter, i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine produces 117 horsepower at 6,600 rpm and 106 lb-ft. of torque at 4,800 rpm.

A 5-speed manual transmission is standard but a 5-speed automatic transmission is available too. Under the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) city/highway fuel economy rating, the automatic transmission Fit achieves f 28/35 miles per gallon. The manual transmission Fit and Fit Sport with either a manual or the available automatic transmission achieves an EPA city/highway fuel economy rating of 27/33 miles per gallon.

Safety features include the Advanced Compatibility Engineering's (ACE) body structure, standard anti-lock brakes as well as dual-stage, multiple-threshold front airbags, dual front-side airbags with passenger-side Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS) and side-curtain airbags.

These are standard equipment on all models. Vehicle Stability Assist's (VSA), commonly referred to as electronic stability control, is included on Fit Sport models equipped with the available Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System. Standard amenities include air conditioning, an AM/FM/CD audio system with four speakers, MP3/WMA playback capability, Radio Data System (RDS), auxiliary audio input jack, power windows, power mirrors and power door locks.

The Fit Sport adds alloy wheels, an underbody aero kit, rear roofline spoiler, fog lights, security system with keyless remote entry and cruise control. In addition, the Fit Sport audio system provides six speakers, a five-mode equalizer and a USB Audio Interface. The Fit Sport is available with the Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System with Voice Recognition, featuring a 6.5-inch screen and more than 7 million points of interest.
