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