The 2009 Honda Fit has a higher starting price than most of its competitors, but it also comes nearly fully loaded.
Reviews read by TheCarConnection.com show that automotive experts are impressed by what Edmunds calls the "generous standard features list" on the 2009 Honda Fit. The base model of the Honda Fit includes just about all the features found on the Honda Fit Sport, including "air conditioning...tilt/telescopic steering wheel," power accessories, and an "AM/FM/CD/MP3 player," according to ConsumerGuide. ConsumerGuide goes on to report that the Honda Fit Sport adds a "leather-wrapped steering wheel w/radio controls, cruise control," and "remote keyless entry" as standard features.
Optional features are not one of the 2009 Honda Fit's strengths. In fact, Cars.com notes that "Honda's touch-screen navigation system and a USB port for accessing iPods and simple flash drives through the stereo" are the only available options on the Honda Fit. This dearth of options disappoints some reviewers, especially those at Car and Driver, who report that they are "surprised about the Fit's lack of available satellite radio and Bluetooth."
