Car and Driver
Surprisingly, if you get a 2012 Honda Civic, you'll end up with better mileage than you will from the Honda Fit.EPA estimates rate manual transmission Honda Fits and Honda Fit Sports with the automatic at 27 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway. The base Honda Fit with the five-speed automatic fares slightly better, with EPA estimates of 28 mpg city and 35 mpg on the highway. In a class where 40 mpg highway ratings are becoming the norm, that's not all that impressive.
The 2012 Honda Fit is no standout for gas mileage; in fact, it's outdone by the larger Civic.
