Honda Fit rated KBB ‘Best Buy’ sub-compact for 2015

Only one sub-compact made it onto Kelley Blue Book’s small car “Best Buy Award” list of finalist. Is Honda’s all new Fit the best car choice for you?


Only one sub compact car made it into final consideration for KBB’s “Best Buy Award” in the small car category. Honda Fit went crumple zone to bumper with the competition in the segment and found itself tied in the top four. 2015 Honda Civic took top honors with Fit, Mazda 3 and Volkswagen Golf in the runner’s up position.

As Kelley Blue Book most eloquently stated: ”None of the Best Buy winners is the best buy for everyone.” That’s the truth, those wanting affordable “Zoom,Zoom” and cutting edge good looks may turn to Mazda while V.W. Hatch fans look to the sometimes formidable and infinitely transformable Golf for a metric performance fix; we honor personal preference and have driven all.

2015 Honda Fit surprises: The first time we drove the all new Honda Fit we were collectively blown away by the EarthDream ™ direct injected i-VTEC 4 cylinder engine and CVT transmission with paddle shifters. It wasn’t so much that the earlier generations of Fit lacked in drivability and utility, for 2015 Honda Fit performs and handles like a much larger car.

Here lies the success of Fit: One doesn’t have to justify the purchase based on price and fuel economy alone. Fit’s good looking, sports a nicely appointed quality finished environment and exceptional driving experience while offering class setting interior volume and utility.

While not the lowest priced vehicle offered in the segment,($15,650-$19,925)when standard base features, transformer like ability and cost of operation is factored into the equation, Fit comes out on top.

For 2015 Kelley Blue Book predicts that Honda Fit will once again rank as one of the highest residual value used cars in North America; just the icing on the cake.You may read Fit price and specification details here.

Just spent a week with the 2015 EX 6-speed manual. Very high on the fun-to-drive meter, I was very impressed with this subcompact. If you haven't driven the new 6-speed gearbox, you need to, it's the way to go for driving enthusiasts. I can see why it's getting so many accolades!

I just got the FIT on 1/3/2015 automatic as a gift. I can't wait to really get to know my new car. I have enjoyed driving it home from the dealer!
