Generous standard features list
An optional navigation system in the Fit Sport's Navi package
A USB port for accessing iPods and simple flash drives through the stereo
Those who like a reasonably well-equipped car will be pleased to see that the 2010 Honda Fit isn’t offered as a stripped-down special. The Fit costs more than most of its competitors, but shoppers likely won’t feel the need to add many options.
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.
There are few options available on the 2010 Fit, and some tech options are sorely missing. 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 extras on the Honda Fit. This dearth of options disappoints some reviewers, especially those at Car and Driver, who confess that they are "surprised about the Fit's lack of available satellite radio and Bluetooth."
The 2010 Honda Fit comes well-equipped, and you’ll be happy, provided you aren’t looking for any leading-edge tech features.
