It’s difficult to get the proportions right in a small, tall hatchback like the 2010 Honda Fit. Judging by the responses of a wide range of reviewers, Honda nailed the details, but the Fit’s overall effect can leave people hot or cold.

Reviews read by TheCarConnection.com show that most are less than impressed with the new styling on the 2010 Honda Fit. The Fit is "a subcompact four-door hatchback available in two trim levels: base and Sport," according to reviewers at Edmunds. Compared to the previous (2008) Honda Fit, Motor Trend finds that the latest model is "longer by 2.2 in., wider by 1.4 in.," and "longer in wheelbase by 2.0 in.," though it is still among the smaller cars on the road today. Jalopnik describes the revised Honda Fit as "more bulbous, less of a bullpup and more of a breadvan." Reviewers at Motor Trend point to a number of details, including “larger front quarter windows, larger, shapelier headlights, and sportier body-kit-like moldings."

The interior of the 2010 Honda Fit fares consistently well with reviewers. Car and Driver thinks that the interior is much improved versus the previous version of the Fit, asserting that "Honda went for refinement...from a dynamic, interior, and styling standpoint." Jalopnik reviewers first notice the "abundant blue LEDs at important marks" on the instrument dials, but they lament the "poorly integrated but functional" navigation system. ConsumerGuide reviewers are impressed with the "high mounted, handy, and clearly marked" audio controls, as well as "rotary climate controls [that] are stacked to the right of the steering wheel and are easy to reach and use."

Conclusion

The 2010 Honda Fit makes a slightly awkward first impression, but its interior strikes the right look.

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.
