2020 Honda Fit Review test and performance

Exterior

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.

The Interior

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 its 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.

Summary

The 2020 Honda Fit is yet another overly practical car from the Japanese automotive maker. It was not designed to set your world on fire so don't expect it too. What you will get is a generous economy with good cabin space and starting as low as $16,500 for a base-spec new car it's hard to avoid. We enjoyed driving the Fit even if we thought it a little ugly. Because of the fuel economy we can easily see this car being a practical cheap car for Tanzania, Kenya, or Zimbabwe, etc.
