Expert Quotes:

Front seats are welcoming and pleasantly contoured
Edmunds

there's plenty of headroom front and rear, but legroom in the back seat is modest
Orlando Sentinel

Though ride quality is firmly smooth on pristine pavement, it can verge on harsh when the surface gets patchy, and it’s a harshness that’s accompanied by road noise.
Car and Driver

The interior of the Fit clearly isn't a luxury car, but the shapes, color combinations and textures of the hard plastics keep it from feeling excessively cheap.

they've added a secure storage drawer beneath that seat
Popular Mechanics

If you're cross-shopping a lot of small cars, you'll notice that while appointments are simple and sturdy in the 2012 Honda Fit, something is very different—in a good way—about its interior packaging. It will likely have you stepping back out and doing a double-take the first time you get inside. More than almost any other vehicle's design, the Fit makes the most out of a small space, for both passengers and cargo.

The 2012 Fit is one of the most comfortable-riding cars in its class, with a firm but compliant suspension--though of course there's no way you could call it luxurious. Switchgear is high-quality, but the look and feel of cabin appointments is quite good for the money.

Honda has looked to minivans and larger MPVs for inspiration in the Fit's cabin design, and the results are phenomenal. There's enough headroom and legroom for two adults—or three kids—in back, and the so-called Magic Seat folds flat by lifting a single lever and pushing the seatback forward, with no need to remove rear headrests in the process. In front the driving position is upright but comfortable, with a good view forward. And the steering wheel telescopes on all modelsThe cargo floor is especially low for easy loading, amassing an impressive 20.6 cubic feet of EPA cargo room.

In addition, there are two glove compartments (upper and lower), plenty of cup holders (redesigned in the center console for 2012), and many useful storage compartments and cubbies in the center console, dash, and doors—as well as under the back seat.

 

Conclusion

The 2012 Honda Fit works some interior-design magic that makes it a small-car standout.

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.
