The Fit is Stop!

Antilock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution are one of many safety features you might not expect of cars in this class. They're standard in the Fit. Par for the course, though, it has rear drum rather than disc brakes. This doesn't necessarily mean the car doesn't stop well, but discs are a theoretical advantage. I found the brakes reasonably linear, but the brake pedal has a slightly spongy feel that I associate with drums.
