options in many competitors...are standard [on the Fit]
The Auto Channel

Valuable safety features and power locks and windows notwithstanding, Honda Fit drivers will notice the absence of small details that are taken for granted on other vehicles.

With neither lights nor locks for the glove box, front wipers with only a single "intermittent" setting, and no adjustments for the seat height and the steering wheel, the 2008 Honda Fit does lack some of the finer things in life. However, Cars.com mentions that because of all the standard features (many of which are options on similar vehicles) and its many other virtues, it's "easy to forget that you're in an econocar."

To be sure, the Honda Fit comes at a slightly higher price than its competitors, but when you consider all the safety features included at no additional charge, plus the air conditioning and power assists for the mirrors as well as doors, windows, and locks, the experts at TheCarConnection.com agree that the extra cost is worth it.

Kelley Blue Book reports that prospective owners of the Honda Fit can also choose from more than 30 different dealer-installed options that include upgrades for both the interior and the exterior. Cabin options that are included with the Sport version include a major stereo upgrade to a 200-watt, six-speaker system with playback capability for both MP3 and Windows Media files. Additional upgrades include cruise control, keyless remote entry, and padded automatic shift controls accessible from the steering wheel.


Conclusion

The standard safety features alone are worth the extra cost of a stock 2008 Honda Fit. If you must have all the bells and whistles, however, upgrade to the Sport edition.

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.
