The 2010 Honda Fit promises to be compact on the outside yet spacious inside. The exclusive 60/40 split rear Magic Seat offers multiple seating and cargo-carrying configurations--tall object mode, long object mode, and utility mode--in addition to the standard five-passenger mode.
The 1.5-liter, i-VTEC four-cylinder engine is tuned to deliver a combination of power and fuel economy. A five-speed manual transmission is standard and a five-speed automatic transmission is available. Steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters on Fit Sport models equipped with the available automatic transmission allow for manual gear selection.
The engine produces 117 horsepower at 6,600rpm and 106 lb-ft. of torque at 4,800rpm. The Fit equipped with the available automatic transmission achieves an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) city/highway fuel economy rating of 28/35 miles per gallon. The Fit with a manual transmission and Fit Sport with either a manual or the available automatic transmission achieve an EPA city/highway fuel economy rating of 27/33 miles per gallon. Emissions ratings are CARB ULEV-2 and Federal EPA Tier 2, Bin 5.
The 16-inch wheels, for the Fit and Fit Sport, feature 175/65 R15 84S (Fit) and 185/55 R16 83H (Fit Sport) tires. The standard antilock braking system (ABS) with electronic brake distribution (EBD) uses 10.3-inch ventilated discs in the front and 7.9-inch drums in the rear.
