The inner spaciousness of the Honda Fit is not only surprisingly expansive, but it is also amazingly versatile.
The Fit delivers four configuration modes that let drivers maximize passenger space, cargo capacity, or a combination of the two as their needs change from trip to trip. You can pack in an unbelievable variety of items when you need a hauling machine, and when passengers are your primary cargo, you and your friends or family members can travel in spacious style.
The following are the Fit’s innovative configuration modes, giving you the flexibility you need for whatever your journey demands:
Long Mode: When you need to transport a long item, you’re out of luck when the vehicle you drive is a car, right? Wrong! The Honda Fit also provides a Long Mode configuration, which lets you pack in lengthy items that you normally couldn’t carry in a car—but the Fit is no ordinary car! To activate Long Mode, simply lower the front and rear passenger-side seats and you’ll have a long, continuous space to utilize from front to back. Long Mode provides enough room to carry a ladder, skis, and much more with ease!
Tall Mode: As the name would suggest, Tall Mode is for transporting taller items. Let’s say you just purchased a tall potted plant at a nursery. You can fit it in securely with Tall Mode. Just remove the rear-seat headrests, fold up the back seats, and you suddenly have up to 4 feet of floor-to-ceiling space to carry that tall plant safely and securely.
Refresh Mode: Last but not least, Refresh Mode is one of our very favorite features in the Honda Fit. This mode is tailor-made for the humans in the car, providing an incredible space where drivers and passengers alike can stretch out for a nice nap when out on the road. If you’re getting drowsy behind the wheel, simply pull the Fit over, fold back either front seat, recline its corresponding back seat, and you’ve created a body-length space that is perfect for stretching out and getting in a nap. You can then safely resume your driving with greater alertness. Refresh Mode is also perfect if you need to turn your car’s cabin into a makeshift office. Settle back, stretch out your legs, and use your laptop or dig through your briefcase with plenty of room—no steering wheel getting in the way! Your front-seat passenger will love Refresh Mode, too. Passengers can curl up for a nice nap while you’re on the move or simply stretch out full length to get more comfortable as you drive. Additionally, if you’re trying to save money on a road trip, you can skip the hotel costs and sleep a full night inside the Fit—it’s that roomy!
The Fit’s impressive roominess continues when it comes to overall passenger space. We’ve already told you about the incredible options Refresh Mode opens up for the driver and front occupant, and the Fit’s inner space is just as impressive when the car is carrying a full load of passengers.
Breaking down the interior space into individual measurements, the Fit serves up 38.0 inches of front headroom and 37.6 inches of rear headroom when equipped with a moonroof. Sans moonroof, the headroom measurements change to 39.5 inches up front and 37.5 inches in back.
In terms of legroom, Fit occupants will enjoy 41.4 inches in front and 39.3 inches in back. Hip room is an impressive 51.5 inches up front and 45.1 inches in the rear.
Shoulder room in the Fit is 54.8 inches in front and 52.6 inches in back.
The Fit’s generosity doesn’t end there. Passenger comfort is even further enhanced with available features like heated front seats and leather seating—each of which comes standard in the top-level Fit EX-L trim.
