2011 Honda Fit Review and Prices

About 2011 Honda Fit

As the 2011 Honda Fit speeds onto the market, it received mixed reviews from auto critics. First off, it does not introduce any drastic changes from the previous model, which is reason enough to heave a sigh of relief for those who did not want the formula to be tinkered with. But on the other hand, it leaves one to question as to whether they should settle for the 2009 model or venture into the unknown.

The Fit 2011 model comes with four-door hatchback and have enough room for five passengers total. The roofline is tall but it comes with petite wheels, leaving it suitable for highway driving. The styling for this vehicle is very reminiscent of Japanese city cars, wherein the Honda vehicle styles were first innovated. Although 2011 Fit might not be the largest vehicle in the market, it manages to efficiently use its interior space. There are three trim lines available for the Fit, which are as follows: base Fit, Fit Sport, and the Fit Sport equipped with a Navigation system.

Pricing Details

Since the 2011 Honda Fit was released in Summer of 2009, many were pleased with its advance listing of features while ensuring that the prices remain affordable for the general consumers to afford. The base model comes with the manual transmission system and prices begin at $15,610. Meanwhile, the base models that are equipped with automatic transmissions are priced slightly higher at $16,410. Honda promises more option to come out in the coming years to serve as upgrade to the current Honda Fit model, but you can expect corresponding price increases for those.

The Bottom Line

The 2011 Honda Fit is your best option if you are looking for a vehicle model that is small on the outside, but big on the inside. Although this one sees not much a variation from the 2009 Fit, any changes made were significant enough to make it more powerful, strategically enhance its size, and make it more appealing. If you can leave with its current EPA rating, then you’re good with picking this one up. If not, then you might have to cash in on a more expensive subcompact SUV to give you better fuel economy.

    The 2011 Fit Sports will come standard with Honda’s VSA (Vehicle Stability Assist) which was only available in 2010 models equipped with their Navigation. Since the Nav cars only came with automatic transmissions, it meant you were forced to pay an additional $1,850 just to get VSA if you really didn’t want their Nav. These days, you can buy EXCELLENT portable Nav units for only a few hundred dollars. In addition, Nav cars are significantly more expensive to lease. The 2011 Fit Sports will also come standard (finally) with floor mats which was a bit of an insult previously

    From Joel. Am I correct in assuming VSA is NOT available in the base Fit 2011? Also, do you know when 2011’s will be on sale? Now? (Nov. 22nd) Thx for getting back to me @ obmamamoy@cox.net @Karter Smith
