2011 Honda Fit Safety

8.0
On Safety
The 2011 Honda Fit is one of the safer small-car picks you could make. Its occupant protection record is strong, with the Fit achieving top good ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) in frontal offset and side categories—though its roof-strength result was a step down, at 'acceptable.'

The Fit hasn't yet been rated by the federal government, with its revised 2011 test methods and ratings system; however, last year's model achieved five stars for front occupants in both frontal and side-impact tests.

The 2011 Honda Fit offers an especially strong body structure, along with a long list of safety features including front seat side airbags, full-length side-curtain bags, and anti-lock brakes. And for 2011 you no longer have to get the navigation system in order to get stability control; ESC (or, as Honda terms it, VSA) is standard for 2011.

The 2011 Honda Fit has an impressive crash-test record and a good set of standard safety features.

Outward visibility is considerably better than in most other small cars, thanks to a nice, low beltline with extra front and rear quarter-windows to help.
