The 2018 Honda Fit is a top subcompact hatchback - especially if you're a speed-loving, luxury-aspiring driver on a budget. Inside, it's got the comfort features you crave and even some that you didn't know you needed, like the rear Magic Seat, an exclusive item that helps you rearrange the cabin for extra cargo or lounge space. The Fit's tech features keep you connected and guide you through unfamiliar cities. If sporty is your goal, the Fit is ready to show off.
2018 Honda Fit
When you choose the 2018 Honda Fit, you can expect to save money. In addition to its thrifty price tag, this hatchback conserves fuel, earning up to 33 city/40 highway mpg. However, the Fit never shorts you on performance. In fact, it supplies you with plenty of power for quick acceleration. And, with its responsive handling, this hatchback even feels sporty down winding roads. There aren't many competitors who even come close to the Fit's blend of fuel economy and athleticism.
It might be entirely affordable, but the newly redesigned 2018 Honda Fit still manages to come fully loaded with comfort and convenience features. Seating is roomy and comfortable, even if you plan to spend hours on the road. And the clever dash design puts everything you need within close reach of the driver seat, so it's easy to get what you want. Then there's the rear Magic Seat, which folds in four different ways to create extra cargo space or passenger comfort. You can even mold it into a La-Z-Boy-like lounger that lets a rear-seat passenger spread out over both rows and maybe even take a nap.
The latest HondaLink infotainment system is better than ever. Use its intuitive touchscreen to sort through the apps menu. Voice controls come in handy when you want to access these features without turning away from traffic. This year, the Fit provides complete smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. These connectivity features display your smartphone apps on the central touchscreen, so you can reach over and make a phone call without ever having to pick up your actual phone. They also treat you to seemingly endless entertainment options, including Pandora and all your favorite podcasts.
Safety is another big part of the 2018 Honda Fit's appeal. In government crash tests, this hatchback earned a perfect five star rating for overall protection. When you engage your turn signal, the unique LaneWatch blind-spot system displays the passenger-side blind spot on the central touchscreen. It's designed to help you avoid hitting a car that you didn't know was there. With the Honda Sensing suite, driver aids like lane keeping assist monitor your surroundings and give you important feedback on danger. This technology keeps you on your toes, so you can respond quickly to any given situation.
The good news is that Honda offers some impressive features on all of its trims, especially the EX and EX-L. In fact, you'll find very few differences between the EX and EX-L, until you get to the driver safety aids. Only available options on other trims, features like adaptive cruise control, collision mitigation braking, lane keeping assist, and road departure are standard and make driving the smart, sporty, and leather-trimmed Honda Fit safer and easier.
Don't bother fumbling for your key--keep it in your purse or pocket with the Smart Entry system. It will recognize your key as you come closer, allowing you to open your door with a button.

You're not going to find another hatchback in this price range that can do all the things that the 2018 Honda Fit can do. It saves you money on gas, but it's also speedy and fun to drive. Inside, you'll find class-exclusive features like the Magic Seat that maximize passenger comfort. It's hard to imagine another subcompact car doing as much as the Fit does to give you both the performance, style, and features you want.
