TORRANCE, Calif., Nov. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The 2015 Honda Fit has claimed a spot on the prestigious 2015 AUTOMOBILE All-Star list (automobilemag.com/2015AllStars). The brand's editors, who judge each vehicle on its performance, features, and overall value, applauded the Fit (automobiles.honda.com/fits) for its refined powertrain, excellent ergonomics, and fun-to-drive dynamics.
"The Fit remains the benchmark for packaging, versatility and value in its segment," said Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of the Honda automobile division for American Honda. "AUTOMOBILE's recognition of the Honda Fit validates our ongoing efforts to deliver best-in-class vehicles for our customers, and our continued investment in North American manufacturing."
"We'd argue there isn't a better car on the road today starting under $20,000 than the Honda Fit," said AUTOMOBILE editor-in-chief Mike Floyd. "It's fun to hustle around, especially when its updated engine is mated to its new six-speed manual. It's pulled off adding more rear seat and cargo area—all while decreasing its overall footprint. And it's available with more options and safety features than ever before. The Fit is still very much go, and it's a 2015 AUTOMOBILE All-Star as a result."
This win for the 2015 Fit marks the 20th time a Honda has been named an AUTOMOBILE All-Star since the award's inception in 1990. Past Honda All-Stars, in addition to the Fit, include the Civic, Element, Prelude, Odyssey, Accord and Ridgeline.
