Honda spares little when it comes to advanced safety features for the 2008 Honda Fit, making these available as standard offerings on the base vehicle rather than pricey options.

The Auto Channel reports that anti-lock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution are also standard on the 2008 Honda Fit, as well as a tire pressure monitoring system.

TheCarConnection.com notes that the Honda Fit received consistently high marks from both the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) as well as the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The 2008 Honda Fit received five-star ratings from the NHTSA in all areas except for passenger side impacts and rollover ratings; the Fit got three and four stars respectively in these areas.


Conclusion

The 2008 Honda Fit’s safety package is good, but its size and design don’t make for great passenger-side impact ratings.

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.
