Previously in our Germain Honda of Dublin blog, we mentioned that the Honda Fit gained points from parents far and wide by making it onto the exclusive USAA "Top Ten for Teens" list. The innovative subcompact earned a spot largely due to its high-levels of safety and reliability. Now, we're pleased to share that there's a new reason for teens to love the Fit: it's one of the coolest cars around.
Of course, young drivers aren't the only ones drawn to the Honda Fit; any consumer with an eye for affordability and a desire for fun will enjoy the auto. Why do we at Germain Honda of Dublin say this? The 2012 Honda Fit was just named to Kelley Blue Book's (KBB) list of "10 Coolest Cars Under $18,000."
Straight from the horse's mouth, KBB says about the Honda Fit, "It's easy to conclude why we're fans...It's fun to drive, has a cool back seat that flips and folds for handy storage solutions and looks like nothing else on the road."1
Oh, and a few other things. With an energetic 1.5-liter 4-cylinder engine and five-speed manual or automatic transmission, drivers are able to make the most of the auto's 117 horsepower and 106 pounds-feet of torque. As for fuel economy, the 2012 Honda Fit gets a competitive 27 mpg city/33 mpg highway*.
Germain Honda of Dublin could go on touting the Fit model's attributes forever. However, we maintain that the best way to get a feel for any new Honda vehicle would be to stop by 6715 Sawmill Road Dublin, OH 43017 and take one for a spin yourself. Simply stop by at your earliest convenience or contact us ahead of time to set up an appointment.
