2019 Honda Fit Values & Cars for Sale | Kelley Blue Book (2022)

Honda upgraded its Fit for 2018 with sportier suspension tuning and Active Cruise Control — plus available Apple CarPlay and Android Auto — so little has changed with this space-efficient subcompact hatchback. Nevertheless, the 2019 Honda Fit remains the yardstick by which other affordable subcompacts are measured, including the Chevrolet Sonic, Ford Fiesta, Hyundai Accent, Kia Rio 5-Door, Mitsubishi Mirage and Nissan Versa Note. Outstanding versatility is the calling card of the Fit, which is imbued with a spunky personality and sold in four trim levels: LX, Sport, EX and EX-L. All have Honda’s so-called Magic Seat, which folds in different ways to accommodate cargo of varying shapes and sizes. One powerplant is available: a 1.5-liter 4-cylinder that sends 130 horsepower to the front wheels via a 6-speed manual or a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) with available paddle shifters.

Used 2019 Honda Fit Pricing

A base-level 2019 Honda Fit LX with the 6-speed manual transmission carries a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $17,085, which includes the $895 destination charge. Add $800 for the CVT and only $1,000 for Honda Sensing, making that safety suite a bargain in our book. Moving up in price, the Fit Sport has an MSRP of $18,395; the EX lists for $19,055; and the EX-L (CVT only) costs $21,415. While prices are higher than those of many of its competitors, the Fit is generously equipped and competitive with the Ford Fiesta, Toyota Yaris and Kia Rio. Be sure to check the Kelley Blue Book Fair Purchase Price to see what consumers in your area paid for their Fit. In resale value, the Honda Fit historically trounces its competitors.

Driving the Used 2019 Honda Fit

The Fit is proof that a car doesn’t need gobs of horsepower to be fun. Agility and responsiveness are far more important, and the 2,600-pound Fit has both in spades, aided by a 6-speed manual gearbox with well-defined shift gates. This fuel-efficient little Honda is a comfortable everyday runabout that shines on twisty roads, aided by firm but not jarring suspension tuning and accurate electric-assist steering. Sport, EX and EX-L models wear 16-inch wheels with 185/50-16 tires; the base Fit, the LX, wears higher-profile 185/55-15s that offer a slightly smoother ride on rough roads. Extra sound insulation, new last year along with a special acoustic glass, continues to make the Fit cabin noticeably quieter than it was in 2017.

Interior Comfort

Who doesn’t love a small car that accommodates tall people and lots of cargo? That, in a nutshell, is the 2019 Honda Fit. Creative packaging is largely responsible, with Honda placing the fuel tank beneath the front seats to free up room elsewhere. And then there’s the clever Magic Seat, which splits 60/40 and folds in ways to let the owner carry a bicycle or even a surfboard. Soft-touch materials adorn the 5-seat Fit cabin, along with attractive silver-accent trim.

Exterior Styling

Early Honda Fits looked slab-sided, not unlike a miniature minivan. The 2019 3rd-generation car, introduced for 2018, shed those looks in favor of a leaner design that’s more chiseled and modern, with a steeply canted windshield and a sporty rooftop spoiler. Eight color choices are available, and if you want black wheels, they’re available only on the Fit Sport. The 15-in. wheels of the base LX are steel, with covers. Fit EX and EX-L models are equipped with fog lights, alloy wheels and extra chrome on the grille and liftgate.

Favorite Features

Honda Fit Sport, EX and EX-L models all boast a 7-inch touch screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. Honda’s own satellite-linked navigation is available only on the EX-L model.

The Fit’s suite of safety technologies — Adaptive Cruise Control, Collision Mitigation, Forward Collision Warning, Lane Keeping Assist and Road Departure Mitigation — now includes automatic high-beam headlights. Honda Sensing Suite is standard on the EX and EX-L.

Standard Features

Standard features include a 6-speed manual gearbox, rearview camera, automatic headlights, LED taillights, a 5-inch touch screen, cruise control, remote keyless entry and a one-touch up/down driver’s window. Also standard: air conditioning, the Magic Seat, audio controls on the steering wheel, a trip computer, a tilt/telescoping steering wheel, Bluetooth, and a 160-watt AM/FM/CD/MP3 sound system with a USB port. Side-curtain airbags are standard too, along with stability and traction control. Leather-trimmed seats are standard only on the EX-L.

Factory Options

The Honda Sensing suite of safety technologies (Adaptive Cruise Control, Collision Mitigation Braking, Lane Keeping Assist and Road Departure Mitigation) is available on the Fit LX and Sport, but only on models with the CVT. The Fit EX and EX-L have Honda Sensing standard, in addition to their 16-inch alloy wheels, fog lights, push-button ignition, paddle shifters, 7-inch touch screen and sunroof. They also have the nifty Lane Watch camera, which gives the driver an unobstructed view of the right side of the car on the infotainment display whenever the right turn signal is activated.

Engine & Transmission

Honda’s 1.5-liter 4-cylinder engine makes 130 horsepower in the 2019 Fit, and its eagerness to rev gives this compact Honda a feisty nature. Unlike many engines that fall a bit flat at high rpm, the Fit engine, thanks to variable-valve timing and control, makes excellent power at its 6,800-rpm redline. At the same time, it’s efficient in daily driving; the CVT model returns EPA fuel-economy figures as high as 33-mpg city, 40-mpg highway and 36-mpg combined.

1.5-liter inline-4
130 horsepower @ 6,600 rpm (manual)
128 horsepower @ 6,600 rpm (automatic)
114 lb-ft of torque @ 4,600 rpm (manual)
113 lb-ft of torque @ 4,600 rpm (automatic)
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 29/36 mpg (manual), 33/40 mpg (automatic LX), 31/36 mpg (automatic Sport, EX and EX-L)

KBB Vehicle Review and Rating Methodology

Our Expert Ratings come from hours of both driving and number crunching to make sure that you choose the best car for you. We comprehensively experience and analyze every new SUV, car, truck, or minivan for sale in the U.S. and compare it to its competitors. When all that dust settles, we have our ratings.

We require new ratings every time an all-new vehicle or a new generation of an existing vehicle comes out. Additionally, we reassess those ratings when a new-generation vehicle receives a mid-cycle refresh — basically, sprucing up a car in the middle of its product cycle (typically, around the 2-3 years mark) with a minor facelift, often with updates to features and technology.

Rather than pulling random numbers out of the air or off some meaningless checklist, KBB’s editors rank a vehicle to where it belongs in its class. Before any car earns its KBB rating, it must prove itself to be better (or worse) than the other cars it’s competing against as it tries to get you to spend your money buying or leasing.

Our editors drive and live with a given vehicle. We ask all the right questions about the interior, the exterior, the engine and powertrain, the ride and handling, the features, the comfort, and of course, about the price. Does it serve the purpose for which it was built? (Whether that purpose is commuting efficiently to and from work in the city, keeping your family safe, making you feel like you’ve made it to the top — or that you’re on your way — or making you feel like you’ve finally found just the right partner for your lifestyle.)

We take each vehicle we test through the mundane — parking, lane-changing, backing up, cargo space and loading — as well as the essential — acceleration, braking, handling, interior quiet and comfort, build quality, materials quality, reliability.
