New 2013 Honda Fit with 2013 Honda Fit Release Date, Specification, Review, Features and Price. The subcompact Honda Fit competes with the Hyundai Accent, Scion xD and Toyota Yaris. It serves as Honda’s entry-level model but has an aggressive design that Honda describes as “super-forward aero-form.” A versatile, configurable interior is one of the Fit’s highlights, and it has room for up to five people.
The Fit’s passenger cabin gets points for stylish design, though the quality of the materials is just so-so. Cars like the Ford Fiesta and Kia Rio have a more premium feel. Seating comfort is good all around, including a rear seat that can accommodate two adults with nary a complaint. Unfortunately, the lack of driver seat height adjustment means some drivers will struggle to get comfortable.
What really sets the Fit’s interior apart, though, is the cleverly designed 60/40-split “Magic” rear seat. Flipping up the seat bottom creates a tall, narrow opening that accommodates taller items that would not otherwise fit within such a small car and also reveals a handy storage compartment. The Fit is also a great choice for those with large dogs — Fido can easily lie across the floor. Fold both rear seatbacks down and you have a flat load floor with 57.3 cubic feet of cargo room, which is just as much as in several small crossovers. If that’s not enough, the Fit’s front seat also folds flat to allow you to squeeze in items nearly 8 feet long. Edmunds
2013 Honda Fit Performance
The 2013 Honda Fit only offers 117 horsepower; yet it has a way of feeling surprisingly frisky when you’re driving around town.
One of the keys to that isn’t its power output, but that the attention given to steering, handling, and maneuverability all help make the most of it. In all those respects, the Fit is all stellar for a small, frugal hatchback. On tight streets and in places where precision matters, the Fit feels crisp and tossable.
Especially with the five-speed manual gearbox, the Fit feels lively and responsive, with the 1.5-liter i-VTEC four-cylinder engine revving eagerly. The five-speed automatic that’s available comes with paddle-shifters in Fit Sport trims, and compared to some other automatics in this segment it does well for responsiveness–though you should be aware that you get some added coarseness and noise.

Some small cars trade off low-speed responsiveness for a nervous attitude at highway speeds; but the Fit feels just fine at 80 mph; there is some engine and road noise, but Honda claims to have made some recent improvements.
2013 Honda Fit Feature
Whether or not the 2013 Honda Fit satisfies with respect to features could depend a lot on your expectations surrounding connectivity. On one hand, it’s definitely no stripped-down small car, and you won’t find manual windows or have to skip air conditioning. But on the other hand, you won’t find satellite radio on offer at all, and Bluetooth connectivity is reserved for top Fit Sport models optioned with the navigation system–stickering over $20k.
