Benson Honda, the premier San Antonio, TX Honda dealer, is proud to announce that recently the 2012 Honda Fit was named the Cars.com/USA Today/MotorWeek $16,000 Subcompact Shootout winner. Several reasons lead to the Fit winning including its overall versatility, fuel efficiency and value.
In order to be qualified for the Subcompact Shootout subcompacts had to meet the following guidelines including; seating for least four, four doors, more than 35 miles-per-gallon on the highway and a sticker price less than $16,000. After sorting through the qualifications, 7 vehicles underwent extensive testing via Cars.com, USA Today and “MotorWeek” with the 2012 Honda Fit coming out victorious. They specifically monitored; gas mileage, practicality, user features and comfort.
Michael Accavitti, American Honda’s VP of Marketing Operations, was proud to see the Fit stand up to the competition so well, stating that, “We are thrilled to have the exceptional package that is the Honda Fit recognized by such a well-respected group of automotive media. To have topped such a wide group of competition in such a thorough, real-world evaluation demonstrates that Honda versatility, value and fun are standard even in our most affordable model.”
The results of the Subcompact Shootout should serve as a tool for consumers as gas prices and used car prices will/have been increasing lately.
