“This isn’t surprising at all,” said Keith Hofkamp, general manager of Sims Honda dealership in Burlington. “Honda prides itself on developing vehicles that get great gas mileage and are low-emissions. Whether its manufacturing, selling, or after the cars are sold, Honda wants to be low-impact on the environment.”

The Honda Fit is a hit with critics and consumers alike for its compact nature on the outside, but surprising amount of space on the inside. The Honda Civic was the best-selling car last year, in good part because of its reliable name and gas mileage. The Honda Insight is a relative unknown compared to the Fit and Civic, but obviously one that car-buyers should take a look at, especially if they want a car that’s environmentally friendly and gets fantastic gas mileage.
