Honda Jazz - Honda Fit MUGEN edition 2009Though ammunition prices accept gone bottomward a bit over the accomplished few weeks, it seems “fuelish” that consumers would go aback to their big SUV, gas-guzzling ways. If you charge account for bristles in a great, baby package, you should acerb accede the 2009 Honda Fit (known as Honda Jazz).
The Fit is now in its additional generation, and the 2009 archetypal is all-new. The fresh Fit appearance a “super-forward” architecture that pushes the auto out to the corners, alms a ample autogenous that belies its diminutive exoteric dimensions. A fresh beyond windshield and ample advanced division windows ensure a clear, bare appearance to the front. Ancillary and rear angle are additionally actual acceptable - a assurance affection sometimes disregarded by consumers on ten-minute analysis drives.
It should additionally be acclaimed that admitting Fit’s baby size, it is a actual safe platform. The addition of Honda’s Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) anatomy anatomy contributes to added assurance and is accumulated with improvements to anatomy acerbity for brittle administration and a decidedly quiet and adequate ride. Expect aerial marks for Fit in U.S. Government and allowance industry blast testing.
With the trend bottomward in size, abounding consumers anamnesis the canicule back activity “small” meant sacrificing abundance and convenience. But things accept consistently been altered with Honda, as they’ve congenital their acceptability on architecture auto and bunched cars with appearance accomplish aloft their MSRPs. Fit continues this trend with a actual aerial akin of accepted content, behindhand of trim level. On abject models for example, accepted appearance accommodate a abounding aural choice complete arrangement with iPod connectivity, exceptional finishing capacity central and out (like assorted abstracts central and a chrome bankrupt finisher and ancillary axle moldings outside), a angle and telescoping council column, keyless entry, ten cupholders, countless accumulator areas, council caster army audio and cruise controls, six airbags, antilock brakes with cyberbanking brakeforce distribution, and Fit’s “Magic Seat.” Magic Seat is congenital into the 60/40 breach rear bench, and allows the rear seats to be bankrupt collapsed into the attic with the cast of a distinct lever, alike with the advanced seats in their aback position.
Tall drivers and cartage will get pleasure Fit’s abounding headroom, admitting legroom is expectedly tight. Wide bodies will get pleasure not abrading accoutrements with passengers. Alike at 6’9” and 275 pounds, my analysis drive in the Fit through upstate Fresh York’s arresting area was agreeable and not aloof because of the ample interior. Pushing the Fit’s 1.5-liter i-VTEC four butt was absolute enjoyable. If you opt for the added big-ticket Fit Sport, you can accept a candied alive bristles acceleration chiral with council wheel-mounted paddle shifters. The Fit accelerates smartly, and handles ample anchorage like adventurous cars that amount bags more. Quiet and nimble, active this car won’t account any “fits” of frustration.
My alone ache about the 2009 Fit is the abridgement of cyberbanking adherence ascendancy on abject models. It’s artlessly not accessible on that trim level. Accept the Fit Sport however, and you get adherence ascendancy standard, as able-bodied as the adeptness to accept alternative
DVD based, satellite-linked navigation. The 6.5-inch, articulation recognition, blow awning navi arrangement opens to acknowledge PC agenda playback capability, added acceptable audio choices.
The 2009 Honda Fit is priced amid $14,500 and $18,760 depending on trim levels, manual choices, and whether you accept alternative navigation. Purchasing this able-bodied done alms from Honda could advice accumulate your assets in “fit” condition.
