Subcompact cars can be rooted in Europe or Asia wherein customers overlook size and refinement for a budget-friendly car that can be used as a means of commute. Honda has an answer for the crowd who demands such one for a vehicle: the 2015 Fit EX model. With the price tag starting at $18,225 it suits the description and just something to brag about—Fit Ex ranks high in the subcompact category and directly challenges Scion iA, Ford Fiesta and Chevrolet Sonic.
Body and Design
The bullet-shaped automobile with dimensions of 160 x 67 x 60 inches can easily put you in tight spaces in the parking area. Honda efficiently combined the interior qualities of a mid-size sedan into the interior of their own Fit. The result is astonishingly impressive that does not sacrifice the comforts during the ride. Even the big boys seem to fall short in this achievement.
Aside from the very friendly price tag, it comes with an efficient fuel economy. Achieving 29 miles per gallon within the city bounds and 37 on highways is a great feat. Additionally, if you’re imagining shortcoming for inside comforts, know that Fit has power windows, A/C power mirrors, Bluetooth audio, rearview camera, cruise control and a five-star safety rating. So what do you think now of this little pony?
