SAFETY | 8 out of 10

Expert Quotes:

'Good,' frontal offset; 'good,' side impact; 'good,' roof strength
IIHS

Four stars overall; four stars, frontal; four stars, side impact; two stars, side pole
NHTSA

the bigger front quarter-windows actually improve the driver’s view of what’s going on out there
Car and Driver

Visibility out of the Fit is also excellent thanks to thinner A-pillars, larger quarter windows at the base of the more steeply raked pillars and a larger rear window.

With a good set of safety features, as well as a reputation for strong occupant-safety scores, the 2012 Honda Fit remains one of the better picks among small cars—although it's not a top performer in all respects.

The Honda Fit has earned great safety ratings from the IIHS--earning back its Top Safety Pick award for 2012 with an improved 'good' rating for roof strength. However its results in the federal NCAP testing program are less impressive--mostly four stars, although with a worrisome two-star rating in the side pole test.

That said, the 2012 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, electronic stability control, and anti-lock brakes.

The Fit's rather low beltline aids outward visibility--so most drivers tend to get a good view for parking or lane changes.

 

Conclusion

The 2012 Honda Fit gets ratings that shouldn't scare away safety-conscious shoppers who want a small car.

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.
