2011 Honda Fit Performance

8.0
Performance
The 1.5-liter i-VTEC four-cylinder engine in the 2011 Honda Fit makes 117 horsepower, but that's plenty to move the Fit quite quickly with the manual transmission and adequately with the automatic. The Fit's engine is especially responsive in the middle of the rev band, which makes it better-suited to the automatic than some other models, and Fit Sport models with automatic get steering-wheel paddle-shifters. Yet overall the Fit is considerably more fun with the manual.

While the Fit might not be astonishingly fast, its handling and maneuverability is impressive. The Fit has a very responsive, tossable feel that makes it feel almost sports-car nimble yet also adequately refined and settled for highway cruising. Relative to other cars its size, the Fit feels remarkably comfortable at 80 mph.
