Default Fit: 2009 Honda Fit - Interior

A spacious interior with added comfort and convenience

Thanks to its super-forward aero-form design the new Fit's spacious interior offers added comfort and convenience. The newly designed dashboard features large, 3D gauges and a new LCD display for fuel consumption, and all the controls are closer to the driver. The seats are redesigned for greater comfort and a new tilt and telescopic steering column provides maximum flexibility. The high-quality interior finishing details create a premium feel. A 4-speaker, 160-watt AM/FM/CD audio system (6 speakers on the Fit Sport) offers auxiliary input for audio devices. The Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™ with 6.5-inch touch screen display and voice recognition is available on the Fit Sport.

3D meters with an advanced, sporty design

The brushed gunmetal surface treatment imparts an advanced, sporty look, and the meter dials are contoured for a 3D effect. The centrally located speedometer's acrylic markers further enhance the 3D effect. Illuminated, blue-backlit gauges offer superior visibility and a high level of refinement.

LCD display shows current fuel consumption and other key information

The LCD display indicates current fuel consumption - a first in a Honda subcompact. Access to current fuel consumption data helps drivers drive more economically. The readout can also be set on odometer, trip-meter and average fuel economy modes.

Easier-to-operate A/C controls


Air conditioner controls have been moved closer to the driver, minimizing the eye and hand motions required to operate them while driving.

More efficient A/C performance

To ensure a comfortable interior in extreme climates, the air conditioning system has been optimized, reducing pressure losses in the cabin unit for a 10% increase in airflow.* Straighter ducting between the compressor and the cabin unit means 25% less pressure loss,* further enhancing the system's effectiveness. These improvements not only help keep the cabin cooler, they also improve overall efficiency and fuel economy.

*Compared to current model

More comfortable driving position with new tilt and telescopic steering column and driver's footrest

New on the 2009 Fit is a tilt and telescopic steering column that permits maximum flexibility to fit a wide range of driver physiques. The steering wheel has a telescopic adjustment range of 1.2 inches and a tilt adjustment range of 1.6 inches. A more spacious foot well provides enough room for a footrest, further contributing to driver comfort. The Fit Sport includes a driver's armrest.



A wide-open feel

One design goal was to create an interior that is not only spacious, but also feels like a larger vehicle from the inside. The base of the windshield is 4.7 inches farther forward and the top edge is farther backward, securing 1.2 times more window area. A lower, forward-sloping instrument panel edge and more compact wiper design create an unobstructed field of view for an expansive, relaxing atmosphere.


Large front quarter windows enhance visibility

An expansive front windshield is matched with large front quarter windows - three times larger than in the current model. A sculpted cut-line running from the front door linings to the front of the instrument panel provides a feeling of continuity and enhances the wrap-around feel.


Seats redesigned to provide a new level of comfort

The new Fit's front seats are built with optimized springs and pad shapes. The seat surface and side cushions are designed to achieve a combination of seating comfort and solid lateral support. The Fit Sport includes a driver's armrest. Rounded seatback shoulders secure a more expansive field of view for rear passengers. Rear seating comfort is improved with wider, deeper, thicker cushions and additional knee clearance. The rear headrests fit snugly into the seatbacks to facilitate easy seat arrangement and secure an improved rear field of vision.

Specially selected materials impart a luxururious feel

Specially selected materials and trimmings throughout the interior create a luxurious environment.

Seats and door trim: Dot-pattern fabric with textured highlights. The appearance of the fabric varies with changing light and angle of view.

Roof lining: An elegant knit material with a crisp pattern has been selected to further enhance the refreshing feel of the interior space.

Audio system

The new Fit features a 4-speaker, 160-watt AM/FM/CD audio system (6-speakers in the Fit Sport) with an auxiliary input jack for an MP3 player and Windows Media® audio playback capability. The new Fit Sport is also equipped with a USB audio interface* for connecting an iPod** or other compatible audio device. Other audio features include Speed-Sensitive Volume Control (SVC), which automatically adjusts the volume based on vehicle speed, and CD/MP3 text readout with a customizable welcome screen. New for the 2009 Fit is a display now compatible with Radio Data System (RDS). It shows supplemental programming information from participating radio stations while also offering search-by-genre capability (not available on the Fit Sport with Navigation).


* The USB audio interface is used for direct connection to and control of some current digital audio players and other USB devices that contain MP3, WMA, or AAC music files. Some USB devices with security software and digital rights-protected files may not work. Please see your dealer for details on compatibility.
