Real-World Testers Choose Honda Fit as Best Sub-Compact Car

In a neat little feature for USA Today, a real-world married couple tested seven sub-compact vehicles. Their choice? The Honda Fit (now available at Sims Honda, Northwest Honda and Apple Valley Honda dealerships).

After testing cars like the Toyota Yaris, Kia Rio, and Nissan Versa “they settled on the Honda Fit hatchback as their clear favorite for its power, comfort and visibility.”

While this ‘regular’ couple, Robyn and Erik Rose, noted that they do not particularly like the look of the Honda Fit, they admitted it was a great car and would be their choice over the seemingly ‘cheap’ Nissan Versa and said that if someone gave them a Rio, they would “trade it in for a motorcycle” (ouch).

“Just like this couple noted, the Honda Fit really is a great car,” said Dave Pitcher, sales manager at Sims Honda dealership in Burlington. “It handles awesome; it’s really fun to drive. It is a really a great choice for individuals and couples who don’t need a bigger vehicle. Just like almost all of Honda’s vehicles, it gets good gas mileage and is a solid, dependable car.”

In fact, this couple said “thought the Honda Fit could do little wrong during their drive.”

“As soon as you sit in it and drive it, you feel at home,” Erik said.

This is a funny little article because this couple’s commentary is very honest and colorful. I love how Robyn (the wife) said that in driving the Ford Fiesta, it seemed like, “They want you to forget that it’s a Ford.” (Again, ouch)

If you are looking for a ‘great’ sub-compact car, head to Sims Honda in Burlington, Northwest Honda in Bellingham or Apple Valley Honda in Wenatchee. Maybe you will find yourself feeling “at home” in the Honda Fit, too.
