The Base trim for the 2009 Honda Fit isn’t the kind of Base that comes without floor mats or a CD player. The base Fit has plenty of amenities: air conditioning, tinted glass, body-colored door handles and bumpers, a 160-Watt AM/FM/CD stereo with four speakers and a Radio Data System, and power windows and locks. And, of course, it features the things that make the Fit so appealing – the base Fit is an Ultra-Low Emissions Vehicle, gets 28/35 mpg, has 57.3 cubic feet of cargo space with the seats down, and has the 60/40 split second-row Magic Seat that allows for multiple configurations.
The 2009 Honda Fit Sport shares a drivetrain with the Base Fit, but adds a rear stabilizer bar for a sportier look and driving feel, along with 185/55 R16 83H size tires. The Sport also adds cruise control and, on vehicles with the five-speed automatic transmission, steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. The Sport stereo system also gets two additional speakers and a USB interface.
The majority of the additions for the Sport come on the exterior: 16-inch alloy wheels, a chrome exhaust finisher, a body-colored underbody kit, body-colored rear roofline spoiler, foglights, and a security system with remote entry. With the Navigation package, new for 2009, the Fit Sport gets Vehicle Stability Assist with traction control and a satellite-linked navigation system with voice recognition. The 2009 Fit Sport can also be fitted with these MUGEN accessories: an aluminum oil filler cap, front sports grille, front under spoiler, side spoiler, rear under spoiler, sports silencer, rear emblem, quick shifter, shift knob, sports pedals, sports floor mats, and mirror cover.
