Introducing the New And Improved 2015 Honda Fit

Since its introduction to the US in 2007, the subcompact has gained respect for its versatility, fuel efficiency and practicality. What reviewers rave most about is how much space the seemingly small Honda Fit has to offer.  While the Honda Fit has had a successful run, it still had a couple complaints, including its lack of refinement and at times an engine that felt underpowered.  Honda has addressed these concerns for the 2015 model, and the result is the best Honda Fit yet.  If you were a fan of the Honda Fit before, get ready to fall head over heels in love again.  Here are 5 things that will make you go googly-eyed over the 2015 Fit:

1)      Quiet Ride.  Thanks to Honda’s determination to improve the noise, vibration and harshness of previous Fit models, the 2015 is now the quietest sub-compact on the market today.  In order to accomplish this, Honda added soundproofing material throughout the body, including the floors, ceiling, doors, fenders, instrument panel and center console.

2)      Power Machine:  The power in the new Honda Fit has improved by 11% compared to previous models, with a 1.5 liter 4-cylinder engine now producing 130 horsepower.  Thanks to the newly improved quiet cabin, you can be going over 70 mph and not even realize it!

3)      Interior Evolution:  With their center-mounted fuel tank,  the Fit is able to achieve best-in-class space with class-leading cargo capacity.  Compared to its closest competitors like the Nissan Versa and Ford Fiesta, the Fit has more front shoulder room, rear legroom and passenger volume.

4)      New Standard Features:  Honda didn’t want anyone to just settle for the Fit, they built it in such a way that it would be competitive to the next class up, which would be the Honda Civic.  Features that will be sure to blow you away are new LED brake lights, auto on-off headlights, smart entry push button start, moon roof, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink and center storage console with armrest.  Probably one of the most exciting new features is the all new heated leather seats available for the first time in the Fit.

5)      Fuel Economy:  Both the manual and the CVT have vastly improved compared to older models.  If you’re number one priority is fuel savings, we recommend going with the CVT as you get 33/41 city and highway mpg. For a more enjoyable and fun ride go with the manual, which is still impressive at 29/37 city highway mpg.

And there you have it.  5 reasons that will make it hard for you to say no to the new love of your life, the 2015 Honda Fit.  With strong fuel economy, a quiet cabin, cargo flexibility and exciting new features,  Honda has made it very easy for you to fall in love.  If you live in the Los Angeles area and can’t wait to get your hands on the new Fit, come and visit us here at Airport Marina Honda! Our friendly sales representatives will be happy to answer any questions you have about the new Fit for sale. What are you mostly looking forward to in the new 2015 Honda Fit?

Find the Honda CR-V in LA!

The all-new 2012 Honda CR-V is the fourth generation of Honda’s popular and widely acclaimed first venture into the SUV market. New on the 2012 CR-V is the Eco-Assist system, which will adjust transmissions shift points and gently retard acceleration. Eco-Assist can be switched on and off by the driver. Honda has given the new CR-V some equally new drivetrain technology. The 2012 CR-V gets hill-start assist, which applies the brakes when the car is stopped on an incline and releases them when the driver touches the accelerator. The clutch that sends power to the rear wheels on the AWD models has a pre-load function that prevents any initial slippage when moving off from a stop. On freeways and surface streets, the ride and handling is solid without being overly firm and stable with little body lean in corners even at elevated speeds.

Is the CR-V right for you? Find it today, by visiting our large selection at Airport Marina Honda!  View our inventory of the 2012 CR-V!

Honda Safety : Real World Research

 

Honda continues to show its dedication to making the safest cars possible, as well as staying on the cutting edge of the latest automotive safety technology. Although all automakers must pass there vehicles through federal safety regulations, Honda’s commitment goes beyond that, as they focus on safety in real world situations.

In 2000, Honda opened the world’s first indoor multi-directional crash test safety facility, located their  major R&D center in Japan. In 2003, they added a new Automotive Safety Research Facility to our R&D center in Ohio. Two of the world’s most advanced indoor crash safety research facilities, these centers conduct a variety of tests to provide Honda with a deeper understanding of what happens in real world collisions as the basis for new technologies that advance safety.

Honda’s indoor crash test safety facility in Japan is as large as a major league baseball field. This enables Honda to conduct crash tests from a variety of directions, at varying speeds, and between vehicles of different sizes. It took Honda three years to create the world’s first “pitching sled test” at the new Automotive Safety Research Facility in Ohio. By simulating how a vehicle’s rear end lifts up in a frontal collision, they can better measure the real world performance of safety systems as a means to help minimize the danger of such collisions.

Honda’s safety research facilities are playing a critical role in our better understanding of collision dynamics and the development of new technologies that improve safety in the real world.  Aren’t you glad you drive a Honda?
