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?

Honda Float Leads 2012 Tournament of Roses Parade

 

The 123rd Tournament of Roses Parade was, as always, impressive. American Honda’s 2012 float, “Sweet Dreams” led the 123rd Tournament of Roses Parade. A celebration of imagination, the float paid homage to the company’s belief in the power of dreams. 2012 represents more than 50 years of collaboration between American Honda and the Tournament of Roses, bringing family entertainment to people around the world and enhancing the Southern California communities where we work and live.

The 2012 Rose Parade  presented by Honda, employed several of Honda’s innovative environmental technologies to help provide greater efficiency and reduce the carbon footprint of the event. Honda’s Rose Parade float was powered by a specially configured hybrid, low-emission engine. In addition, Honda’s 100% electric Fit EV was the Pace Car for the Parade. American Honda’s relationship with the Tournament of Roses began in 1960 with a supply of two-wheeled vehicles and generators for parade operations.

Honda Fit EV Debuts

Honda’s lastest electric vehicle, the Fit EV, was officially unveiled at the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show. The Fit EV is 100% electric and features cutting-edge technology like a 20kWh lithium-ion battery, three driving modes and a smart phone app to keep tabs on your battery’s state of charge.

Charging a depleted battery can take as little as three hours using a 240-volt circuit. And now that charging stations have become more commonplace, you could top off the battery and get your shopping done at the same time.  The Fit EV will be available for lease in select California and Oregon markets next summer and is expected to expand to six East Coast markets in early 2013.

Honda Sponsors 2011 LA Marathon

On March 20, 2011, more than 20,000 runners, walkers and wheelchair participants braved heavy showers and cold temperatures to participate in the 26th annual Honda LA Marathon. Honda is proud to be the title sponsor of this prestigious event. The race cut a cross-section of Los Angeles, from downtown, to West Hollywood to Beverly Hills to the Veteran’s Administration to Santa Monica. However, runners and volunteers from throughout the Southland participated. The race course began at Dodger Stadium and finished near the Santa Monica Pier, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Two of the biggest hits of the weekend were a pair of Odyssey minivan pace vehicles covered with the names of 16,000 marathon participants. The vans were constantly surrounded by runners taking pictures of their names. After pacing the field, they were displayed at the Finish Line Festival

Honda also supports Students Run L.A., an after-school physical fitness and mentoring program that encourages at-risk youth in grades 7 through 12 to run and compete in the Honda Los Angeles Marathon. The program has served more than 42,000 students since 1989. In addition, Honda funds much-needed running shoes for the students as well as general training support that includes a marathon-day uniform.

Have you seen the Honda CR-Z?

The Honda CR-Z is an all new model for 2011, and represents Honda’s third hybrid, following the Insight and the Civic Hybrid. The CR-Z, though, offers consumers a chance to own both a hybrid and a sports coupe at the same time, and gives a distinctively sporty and exciting driving experience. The front-wheel-drive CR-Z is now the only hybrid in years to offer a manual transmission as well as an automatic. The six-speed stick is standard; a continuously variable automatic transmission is optional and includes steering-wheel shift paddles for a manual step-gear feel. Like other Honda hybrids, the CR-Z uses a relatively simple system that puts an electric motor in tandem with a gas engine, in this case a 1.5-liter four-cylinder. Though the engine shuts off when the car is stopped, it’s always turning over when the car’s in motion. The engine and motor combined produce 122 horsepower, which is 24 hp more than the Insight does.
