The Honda Fit is a compact hatchback originally introduced in the United States for the 2007 model year. (The Fit is also sold as the Honda Jazz in Europe and Asia.) In the US market, the Fit competes directly against the Ford Fiesta and the Mazda2. Now in its second generation (last redesigned for the 2008 model year), the Fit receives standard stability control, cruise control, keyless entry, and a USB/iPod interface for 2011.

The 2011 Honda Fit is offered in two trim levels: Base and Sport. The base models are equipped with air conditioning, full power accessories, cruise control, tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, split-folding rear seats, 4-speaker audio system, 15-inch steel wheels, and more. The Fit Sport model is upgraded with a leather-wrapped steering wheel, fog lamps, rear spoiler, 6-speaker audio package, sport body kit, 16-inch alloy wheels, and more. A navigation system, though not included in standard base or Sport models, is available on the Fit Sport with Navigation. That version is only available with an automatic transmission.

All models of the 2011 Honda Fit share the same 1.5-liter 4-cylinder engine rated at 117 horsepower. A 5-speed manual transmission is standard on both base and Sport models, with a 5-speed automatic optional. Fit Sport models with an automatic transmission are fitted with steering-wheel-mounted shift paddles. All 2011 Honda Fit models are front-wheel drive. The EPA rates the fuel economy of the 2011 Honda Fit between 27 mpg city and 35 mpg highway, depending on transmission.

The 2011 Honda Fit starts at a base price of around $15,500 and tops out with the Fit Sport with Navigation, which starts around $20,000.
