How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.

  • Where’s the Bluetooth?

The Honda Fit remains Honda’s most affordable model in the U.S. market. The Fit, which comes as only a five-door hatchback, was completely redesigned last year but remained about the same size. Although the 2010 Honda Fit is the smallest model in Honda’s lineup, it’s about the same length and width as the Honda Civic when it was last offered in the United States as a three-door hatchback (the 2000 model year). However, the five-door Fit is significantly roomier inside due to its tall, upright body style.

To those who value style, the tall proportions arguably make it look like a scaled-down minivan in some respects, but also gives it an extremely roomy interior. What the Fit doesn’t have in silhouette it makes up for partly in the finer points; with last year’s redesign the Fit got a more aerodynamic, better-detailed look, with small side windows just ahead of the front doors to aid visibility, and a pair of character lines that run from the snout through the grille and hood. Inside, the rakish windshield leave a vast expanse of dashboard ahead of the driver, lending an airier feel than some other small cars. The swoopy, two-tiered instrument panel employs textured and matte-metallic plastic surfaces, along with upholstery and trim that are simple but sturdy. Overall, it's easy to conclude that the Fit has a higher-quality interior than some of its rivals.
