The Honda Fit Is An Excellent First Car

August 17th, 2013 by


2013 Honda Fit (6)With its compact body, low price tag, and great list of features, the 5-passenger Honda Fit is proving to be a favorite among new drivers. The 2013 Fit is available now at Middletown Honda, one of the area’s most trusted dealerships. We’re located at 520 Route 211 in Middletown, right next to Gander Mountain and a short drive from many area towns like Mahwah and Newburgh.

Great Performance

The Fit may be small, but it’s tough. The hood hides an inline 4-cylinder engine with a power output of 117hp and 106 lb-ft of torque. When equipped with the 5-speed automatic transmission, it can achieve an EPA-estimated 35 mpg* on the highway.

Features You Can’t Ignore

Despite its low price tag, the Fit comes with a great list of available features, including:

  • Bluetooth connectivity for handsfree calling
  • Illuminated steering-wheel mounted controls for audio, cruise, and phone, so you rarely have to take your focus off of the road
  • Air-conditioning with an air filtering system
  • A tilting and telescoping steering wheel
  • A 60/40 split second row seat for increased storage options

The Fit also houses a surprising amount of cargo space. With the seats up, the Fit has 20.6 cubic feet of cargo room. When you fold down the rear bench, this room increases to 57.3 cubic feet.
