Safety

The Fit hasn't been crash tested, so we'll concentrate on the safety features. In addition to dual-intensity front airbags, the Fit includes front-seat side-impact airbags and side curtain-type airbags as standard equipment. The front passenger seat includes Honda's Position Detection System, which disables the backrest-mounted side airbag — and lights a warning near the speedometer — if the passenger is leaning toward the door in a way that might cause injury should the airbag deploy.

As mentioned above, four-channel antilock brakes are standard and include electronic brake-force distribution.

There are adjustable-height head restraints for each seating position, and all extend high enough for an adult except the center rear one, and even that one is pretty close.
