One of the biggest challenges automakers have when it comes to their bargain models is fitting in something fun for those of us who need to shop at the lowest end of the price range. The Honda Fit has a lot to offer including the Magic Seat that allows you to improve your cargo space or give the rear seat space for passengers and great powertrain to enjoy, but this car gives you much more by being a fun car to drive. While some others are having a hard time getting fun into their cars, Honda has mastered it with the Fit.
While you know the Fit won’t have a huge horsepower number, it does have all the horsepower you need and accesses it quickly to make your ride fun.
