Honda Fit Ranked First on the 2016 10 Best Back-to-School Cars List

Fall is almost here! For many teens, young adults, and parents, that means it’s time to start planning… planning commutes to and from campus, work, shopping centers, sporting events, and various social activities. With all that to plan for, it’s important to have a reliable vehicle. Hence, the automobile industry experts at Kelley Blue Blook annually create a 10 Best Back-to-School Cars list.1 With over 80 years of experience, Kelley Blue Book serves as the perfect vehicle evaluation and information source to help you find a vehicle for all your plans.

And, we at Keenan Honda are excited to announce that the 2016 Honda Fit is at the top of that list! Beating out all other vehicles; including competitors such as the 2016 Kia Soul, the 2016 Mazda3, the 2016 Nissan Versa Note, the 2016 Subaru Impreza, the 2016 Mazda CX-3, the 2016 Ford Fiesta, and the 2016 Chevrolet Spark. This victory marks the Honda Fit’s third consecutive year taking the first place spot on the list.

The Fit is a compact, sleek vehicle often sporting vibrant colors. Despite its efficient use of space, however, the Fit does not sacrifice comfy cabin space. While being able to enjoy their ride in the Fit, passengers can admire the leather-trimmed interior option. Therefore, it is no surprise that style most likely had an influence on the 2016 10 Best Back-to-Schools Car list. As the executive editorial director and executive market analyst for Kelley Blue Book’s, Jack R. Nerad, said. “The kids involved [students] also prefer to have a car they’re happy to be seen in, which suggests that style is part of the equation too.”

Additionally, Nerad emphasized that safety serves a major factor in determining the rankings. This makes sense considering the Honda Fit comes equipped with premium safety features. The Fit’s Multi-Angle Rearview Camera expands drivers’ scope of vision, and thus, helps to prevent accidents. Likewise, the Fit’s Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control prevents accidents by adjusting brake and engine power when drivers oversteer or understeer. And, even though the Fit may seem petite, the Fit is mighty! It’s ACE™ Body Structure monitors the distribution of pressure when collisions are unavoidable. This reduces the chance that occupants will experience any injuries. No wonder the National Highway Traffic Safety Adminstration (NHTSA) awarded the Fit top marks for safety and a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score! 2

Overall, the 2016 Honda Fit acts as a reliable vehicle that fashions a fun flare, which is how the Honda Fit Ranked First on the 2016 10 Best Back-to-School Cars List. Combining style and stability, the Fit makes a perfect back-to-school ride. For all of your upcoming plans, plan on getting to them with the Fit!
