The Fit, a mainstay of Honda's lineup since 2007, is a small hatchback with seating up to 5. The Fit has offered Android Auto and Apple CarPlay since 2018. Exceeding the average MPG (miles per gallon) for its class, it reduces fuel costs and the carbon footprint. Honda offers a 3-year, 36,000-mile basic warranty, and a 5-year, 60,000-mile powertrain warranty on its lineup.

The 2018 Honda Fit is very unsafe compared to all vehicles.

Comparison to all vehicles.  This plot shows RSC safety scores on the horizontal axis vs. the number of vehicles with each safety score (depicted by bar height and percentages at the bottom). Colors reflect vehicle safety, ranging from red (not that safe) to green (safer). For reference, a score of 0 implies a 0.15% chance of driver death (13% chance of driver injury) over 15 years, and a score of 100 reflects a 0.016% chance (1.4% chance of driver injury). The 2018 Honda Fit has a score of 65, implying a 0.061% chance of driver death (5.5% chance of injury). If equipped with optional advanced driver safety features, the chance of death falls to 0.053%, and the chance of injury falls to 4.7%.

We estimate that the 2018 Honda Fit has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0614% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 7.0148%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0614% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 7.0148% chance of being injured.

Compared to the average vehicle, the 2018 Honda Fit is 32% more likely to result in a fatal accident. Compared to other sedans, hatchbacks, and wagons, the 2018 Honda Fit is 22% more likely to result in a fatal accident.

2018 Honda Fit offers AEB optionally. With AEB, the vehicle lifetime fatality chance drops by 14%.

And it is less safe than many comparable cars.
