Honda likes to call the 2018 Fit a subcompact hatchback “without compromises”.

And Fit is an apt name, not just because of the commodious interior, but also for the many ways it can be used.

How they do this is with Honda’s Magic Seat, which is like a Swiss Army knife in the way it can be configured.

First, Honda located the gas tank under the front seats, opening the room between the rear wheels.

Second, the rear Magic Seat itself has four “modes” starting with the Utility Mode, where the seat is folded flat creating 1,492 litres of cargo volume and a cargo floor length of 1.7 m, big enough to swallow a mountain bike.

for 2009, the Fit continues to see strong sales across all demographics, proving Americans will buy hatchbacks so long as they offer the right blend of style It may have the same basic shape as the first-generation model, but look closer and you'll find the 2009 Honda Fit is actually a bit bolder and

In Long Mode, the driver can fold down the right side of the rear seat and fold back the front passenger seat to create a tunnel more than two metres long that can take a surfboard.

In Tall Mode, the seat cushion can be folded backwards and up, creating 1,200 mm top to bottom.

Refresh Mode is when the driver takes off the front head restraint of either front seat and folds either seat flat to create a very nice lounge chair for reading, snoozing or just relaxing with legs extended.

All versions of the 2018 Fit are produced with a 1.5-litre direct injection twincam four-cylinder engine driving the front wheels.

A six-speed manual transmission is standard on the DX, LX and Sport models with a CVT available on the latter two. The CVT is standard on the top trim EX and EX-L Navi.

Why the Honda Urban EV concept is a success, and how Honda could replicate it in America

  Why the Honda Urban EV concept is a success, and how Honda could replicate it in America FRANKFURT, Germany — One of the big surprises at this year's Frankfurt autoThis design is such a success because it both bucks the trend of EVs primarily being ultra-futuristic and aerodynamic machines, and it does that with classically attractive design cues. It allows the Urban EV to stand out from slippery-looking amalgam of Hyundai Ioniqs, Chevy Volts and Bolts, Teslas, Nissan Leafs (Leaves?), and even Honda's own Clarity line. And it shows that traditionally appealing elements like wide fenders and a low, forward-leaning stance that have been successful on internal combustion cars for ages can work just as well on an electric car.

Fuel consumption is rated at 8.1/6.6/7.4L/100 km city/highway/combined for the manual and 7.0/5.9/6.5 with the CVT.

Note the CVT outshines the manual at the pump and the CVT also boasts an “Econ” button that you feel when it is engaged.

Rolling on the highway in normal mode, the revs drop dramatically and it feels like you popped a drag chute the way it slows for more economical travel.

Tested here is the LX CVT, which brings with it the Honda Sensing suite of safety features that includes Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Collision Mitigation Brake Braking System (CMBS) incorporating Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) and Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) with Lane Departure Warning (LDW).

Besides the multi-use interior, new for 2018 is a larger, seven-inch touchscreen for the infotainment that includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto on all but the DX model.

Surprise! McLaren and Honda finally call it quits

  Surprise! McLaren and Honda finally call it quits Toro Rosso will get Honda power.When Honda first announced it was returning to F1 with McLaren, fans had visions of Fernando Alonso and Jenson Button reliving the glory days of Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost in the late 1980s. The truth couldn't be further removed. At points, McLaren has struggled to make it the full race distance, much less win races and fight for championships. Frankly, it's been embarrassing for both Honda and McLaren. No one comes out a winner here. Honda has sullied any reputation it had in F1, while Alonso's talent and McLaren's engineering expertise were both wasted the past few seasons.

One of the little things I like is the cupholder set up high on the left side of the instrument panel that is great because you don’t have to look down to find your coffee.

Now in its third generation, the Fit started life as the Honda Jazz and is now produced around the world in 10 plants and eight countries.

For 2018 it retains a MacPherson strut suspension system and the front and a twist beam at the rear. Unchanged are disc brakes up front and drums at the back.

With the CVT, especially in Econ, it can be sluggish off the line, but perks up nicely after the first few metres or so.

Power with the manual transmission is 130 hp and 114 lb/ft of torque that falls slightly to 128 hp and 113 lb/ft with the CVT because it takes a few horses to run, but the increase in mileage is more than worth it.

The LX rides on smallish 15-inch steel wheels with plastic covers and is rather tall for a sub-compact hatch and thus is susceptible to strong side winds.

The RME-A11 and RME-A89 ecus are found in the 2007-2008 GD Honda Fit and Honda Jazz and can be found behind your passenger side glovebox, mounted above the lower dash cover. The Honda Fit ECU is easily removable and shares many of the same pinouts as the 2001+ EP3 Honda Civics.

The best part, besides the stowage, is how nimble it is, especially in its turning circle of 5.3 meters, which is pretty good for a front-driver.

Thanks to the high roofline, the windows are also big, which makes for great outward visibility.

The Fit is nevertheless just over four meters long, thus pushing the boundary between what is a compact and what is a sub-compact car.

Thanks to the wedge styling, you don’t sense that length, but the resulting passenger volume of 2,710 litres is huge for a car in this class and you notice it immediately, especially if you are seated in the back.

For this year a fifth trim level called the Sport has been added, because Honda has set pricing to be attractive to the widest range of not just Gen-Y, but Boomers too.

If you fancy a sub-compact hatchback with the room of a compact, why not book a test drive and see if it’s the right Fit for you?

Honda Civic Type R crate engine will make your mild car wild .
It's significantly more affordable than Mopar's Hellcrate, but you do get a bit less power.Honda announced Monday that it will offer up a crate version of the K20C1 turbocharged I4 that resides in the 2017 Honda Civic Type R. This hi-po four-banger puts out 306 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. Presumably, you'll need to mate it to a six-speed manual -- your standard Civic's CVT is probably not capable of handling its torque.
