2017 Honda Fit Exterior

This hatchback is one of the most stylish compact options in the industry. Though the previous Honda Fit models looked slightly like an undersized minivan, for the 2017 model year its silhouette has vastly improved. Its short hood combined with a long roofline give the 2017 Fit a quirky, adorable style that is difficult to ignore. Add the Fit’s futuristic-looking front fascia and its sculpted body lines, and you have one hatchback that is anything but typical.

2017 Honda Fit Efficiency

As you would expect from a compact hatchback, the 2017 Fit gets great fuel efficiency numbers. It has an EPA-estimated 33 mpg city and 41 mpg highway, which means it gets 36 mpg combined. For the manual gearbox, numbers drop a bit to 29 mpg city and 37 mpg highway, giving the Fit a 32 mpg combined.
