Specs on the 2010 Honda Fit revealed

Honda announces the specs of the 2010 Honda Fit.

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.

The Honda Fit has received multiple awards including the prestigious Car and Driver Magazine's 2009 "10Best" list and Kelly Blue Book's "Top 10 Green Car" and "Coolest New Cars Under $18,000" awards.
