2017 Honda Fit Provides a Fun Experience for Birmingham Drivers

It’s not an illusion. You really are seeing more and more hatchbacks on the roads around Birmingham, Homewood, and Hoover these days. The hatchback is enjoying somewhat of a renaissance these days and one of the best subcompact hatchbacks for the money is the 2017 Honda Fit. It’s got an incredibly attractive price point, but doesn’t skimp on the features you want and need. There’s even an upscale version of the Fit available in the form of the EX-L trim that includes options like leather-wrapped steering wheel, leather-wrapped shift knob and heated power mirrors. The 2017 Fit is also built by Honda, so you know you are getting a high-quality car that’s going to last for years and years if properly maintained. Gas mileage ratings are off the charts for the 2017 Honda Fit, as it ranks as one of the most fuel-efficient gas vehicles in the entire Honda lineup.

Now’s a great to visit Brannon Honda and test drive a new Honda Fit. We think after just one test drive you’ll agree that the Fit is the “king of subcompact hatchbacks.” Stop by our Honda dealership today located at 300 Gadsden Hwy Birmingham, AL 35235.

A Look Inside the 2017 Honda Fit

Subcompact hatchbacks aren’t exactly known for offering a ton of interior space. The 2017 Fit, however, actually offers a lot more space inside the car than you might expect. The car also comfortably seats five occupants along with providing great cargo capacity in the rear. The 2017 Fit features the incredibly popular second-row Magic Seat®. This is a seating system that can be configured into four different modes: Utility, Long, Tall and Refresh. Utility mode is the best configuration for hauling cargo, as all seats are folded down and gives the Fit 52 cubic feet of cargo capacity. Long mode folds down both the passenger side seats in the front and rear and is optimal for hauling objects with extended length. Tall mode is engaged when the back seats are folded up to create up to four feet of vertical storage space inside the vehicle. Refresh mode is when the front passenger seat is folded back and the rear seat completely reclines. It’s the best option for your passenger to stretch out and relax in the 2017 Honda Fit.

The Fit is also available with technology options like a seven-inch touchscreen display. The system features “pinch and swipe” controls along with Bluetooth technology and Sirius XM satellite radio. The HondaLink® function on the 2017 Fit allows you to pipe your favorite music and podcasts through the sound system inside the car.


Exterior Review of the 2017 Honda Fit

Performance Aspects of the 2017 Honda Fit

Power is provided to the 2017 Honda Fit courtesy of a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine that is good for 130 horsepower and 114 lb-ft torque. There are two transmission options available on the car: a six-speed manual and continuously variable transmission system. As noted earlier, the 2017 Honda Fit ranks among the most fuel efficient gas-powered vehicles in the entire Honda lineup.
