2010 Honda Fit Sport Car Review

It’s not the prettiest thing on the road but that isn’t the point is it? It’s the cheapest way to

get into a Honda but what about the tech?

The Fit’s always been one of my favorite low cost cabins it’s been a little bit massaged.

There are these little bright light markers on the gauges now that I don’t know they appeal

to me, not a big deal. They’ve reworked this remember there used to be these three big

knobs right here for the HVAC that looked kind of clowny to me. This is a nice little

layout, a little more offset. Unfortunately I’ve seen this Honda head unit before and I’m

just kind of tired of it. It’s not bad, it’s just old and stale but this is the optional navigation

rig here common to so many Honda products you see it all across Civics and Accords and

their various SUVs and crossovers there’s really nothing to report new on it to be honest.

And because this one happens to be such an old product, it is still DVD based not hard

drive based. You’re not going to rip anything to this guy.

Also behind this tilt panel, you’ve got your single CD slot and there’s no DVD playback

here but you can play, home burn, WMA and MP3 disks. Here’s the odd ball which

shows you how old this thing is, it’s still got a PC card slot. Rounding out your sources is

AM/FM radio, no HD going on here. Compact disk, I’ve just showed you the card and

yeah like you’ll ever use that. Auxiliary goes to a couple of things. Now first of all I’ve

got an aux plugged in here an analog mini and when that’s plugged in that’s what that

refers to. Yank that out and aux has a different meaning entirely. Now you’re connecting

to a USB dongle here in the other glove box. Sound system is common on all of these Fit

Sports, you’re looking at 160 watts, no fancy processing: bass, treble, fader, balance and

your speed volume control.

Interestingly Bluetooth hands free is ala carte, it’s not part of any advanced head unit you

put in this car which this is the only one. A couple of other oddities about this system

more reasons why I wouldn’t get it. If you get NAV, you have to have an automatic

transmission. There’s no connection it’s just how they’ve got their manufacturing line set

up and oddly enough, the navigation version of the car is the only way to get the stability

control system, the vehicle dynamics control that Honda has. So there’s some weird tying

of features around that NAV head unit.

Now one of the reasons people love this car so much is they’ve done a really good job

with the interior volume usage. In other words, you can do a lot of things with the seats.

First of all, they call this a magic seat or some damn thing. Get a little yank here on the

lever and notice what’s happening, the seat bottom and the seat back are kind of

cantilevering down together as a unit to create a particularly low, flat load floor. It’s

pretty clever. The other thing you can do with these seats when they’re up like this just

pull the cushion up, wow like that, fold this kind of cheap looking camp stool leg down, it

stays up do that to the other side as well and then you got a place to put your bike with

you know the wheels off but still it’ll stick.

The Fit Sport is cheap. Eminently practical, very economical and wears a Honda badge.

That usually is enough for a car to go off the lot. But the sport part is a little rich. There’s

nothing really sporty about it. Our car in blue sensation pearl is only sporty in that it has

larger 16-inch wheels and their alloys and fog lights. I’ve always enjoyed driving the Fit,

even the first gen car that had the world’s worst pedal ergonomics. All the fun was carried
