2013 Honda Fit Reviews, Specs, and Pricing

2013 Honda Fit Reviews, Specs, and Pricing

The Honda Fit retains its spot as the resale value leader in the subcompact car class for a third straight year, and it##Q##s easy to see why.

With the Fit, Honda hands drivers a bargain-priced tool that is neither pretty nor powerful. In place of all that is something rarer: density of thought. There##Q##s more intelligence packed into the Fit than in many cars nearly twice its size. It##Q##s the defining small car—mechanically precise, pared of excess fat, respectful of gasoline, and graced with fluid handling.

The icing on the Fit##Q##s cake, though, is just how much fun this vehicle is to drive. The 2013 Honda Fit##Q##s 117-horsepower, 1.5-liter 4-cylinder engine gives this little mover good motivation without compromising fuel economy.

2013 Honda Fit Linked to a 5-speed manual transmission or a 5-speed automatic, this powerplant provides zippy acceleration and fuel economy of up to 35 mpg. We are particularly smitten with the Fit Sport, which has paddle shifters for its automatic transmission and a “sport” mode for surprisingly lively response.

117-hp, 1.5-Liter, 16-Valve SOHC i-VTEC® Engine

The 1.5-liter, 16-valve i-VTEC® engine gives the Fit a generous amount of horsepower in relation to its size and impressive fuel efficiency[1]. One-hundred six-pound-feet of torque at a low 4800 rpm means drivers can enjoy quick acceleration, creating a comfortable driving experience.

Steering Wheel-Mounted Paddle Shifters

All automatic transmission-equipped Fit Sport models feature sports car-inspired paddle shifters. Mounted to the steering wheel, the paddles provide more control by allowing the driver to shift the car manually.

Drive-by-Wire Throttle System

The Drive-by-Wire throttle system helps enhance the driving character of the Fit. With smart electronics connecting the throttle pedal to the throttle butterfly valve in the intake manifold, the engine response can be optimized to suit the driving conditions and to better match the driver##Q##s expectations

All-new Jaguar F-Type Coupe & R

5-liter supercharged V8 engine and will reach 60 mph in 4.0 seconds, and a top speed of 186 mph (electronically limited)2. The F-TYPE S Coupe and F-TYPE Coupe are powered by 3-liter supercharged V6 engines in 380hp and 340hp forms respectively, giving 0-60 mph in 4.8/5.1 seconds and top speeds of 171/161 mph2.

The F-TYPE Coupe visual message is defined by three key ‘heart lines’, that visual message beginning with the formidable grille. It is from the twin ‘shark gill’ openings that sit either side of the grille that the essential first heart line – which mirrors the design of the F-TYPE Convertible – flows and begins to take shape. Running up through the headlamp, and accentuated by the LED ‘J blade’ signature running lamps, the line then arcs up over the front wheel arch before dropping elegantly as it runs through the door, washing out into the muscular rear haunch.
