Honda’s official Fit launch party is today April 20th, 2006 perfect timing for me to get into a Fit for a week and rekindle those memories from a few weeks back when I attended the Honda Fit press event and first drive to get a feel for the car. This week I am driving a LX with a 5 speed automatic transmission.

The options on the Fit can be a little confusing at first glance and hard to tell a DX, well equipped base model, from an LX or the top of the line Sport model. The LX model comes with all standard features from the base DX model including 6 air bags, abs brakes, body coloured mirrors and door handles and CD stereo with AUX input jack. The LX adds air conditioning, 2 more speakers onto the stereo for a total of 4 speakers and power mirrors and door locks. Honda believes the LX will be their biggest selling model equipped with the automatic transmission.
The items that truly differentiate the Fit from other subcompact cars is the well finished interior with standard “magic seats body coloured door handles and mirrors, ABS brakes and 6 air bags all standard as part of Honda’s “Safety for Everyone” campaign.
Honda Fit MSRP as tested: $18,380
