Benson Honda is here with some very exciting news about the 2015 Honda Fit! The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) just finished fully testing the new Fit in their rigorous series of crash measures, and the Fit passed with flying colors! In fact, the NHTSA gave the new Honda Fit an overall safety rating of 5 stars. This is the top score given by the government testing administration, and it’s quite an honor for the Fit!
Because of their small bodies, it’s hard for subcompact cars to ace crash tests. The Fit, however, goes above and beyond with its next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure. It did exceptionally well in front and side-impact crash tests administered by the NHTSA.
The 2015 Honda Fit is also an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) Top Safety Pick. In order to receive this title, the Fit had to perform well in a number of rigorous safety measures. The IIHS and the NHTSA are the two major safety-testing organizations in the U.S.
The Fit’s comprehensive suite of safety features also gives it a distinctive edge in terms of safety. Things like a standard rearview camera, motion-adaptive electric power steering, hill start assist, blind spot mirrors, and available Honda LaneWatch set the Fit apart from the competition.
Interested in a subcompact car that stands out from the pack as a safety leader, that’s earned prestigious accolades from both the NHTSA and the IIHS? Consider the 2015 Honda Fit at Benson Honda! Let us know if you want to test drive a Fit soon! We’re ready to hand over the keys!
