Benefits of Driving a 2012 Honda Fit Hatchback

The Fit appeals to frugal shoppers who want the most space and versatility in a very small, easy-to-park size. Thanks to its tall, upright body style and clever Magic Seat setup, the Fit is arguably the most space-efficient vehicle in its class and is one of the few vehicles its size with a back seat roomy enough for most adults. Performance is a step above its class, with nimble handling, a perky engine and an available 5-speed automatic. Safety is also a strong in the Fit, featuring standard anti-lock brakes, vehicle stability assist and traction control across the lineup.

What's new for 2012?

For 2012, the Honda Fit Sport features a new front fascia, revised wheels and body-colored mirrors. Base models now include a security system, and Bluetooth hands-free connectivity has been added to Fit Sports with navigation. Blue Raspberry Metallic and Orangeburst Metallic are new additions to the exterior color palette.

Model Strengths

  • Space-efficient design
  • excellent seats
  • nimble handling
  • safety and convenience features not usually found in an inexpensive small car

Model Review

The Fit is very fun to drive, thanks to a 117-horsepower, 1.5L 4-cylinder engine that features Honda's i-VTEC variable valve timing system. The engine provides enough power even with the available automatic transmission, which has five speeds for better passing response and more relaxed highway cruising. A precise-shifting 5-speed manual is standard, but for those who want the best of both worlds, the Fit Sport model, when fitted with the automatic transmission, features paddle-shifters alongside the steering wheel.

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.
