While compact cars tend to offer high fuel economy ratings and terrific performance, many consumers are hesitant when it comes to safety in these small cars—unless they purchase the 2015 Honda Fit. The spacious subcompact hatchback was recently awarded a Five-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), following up the vehicle’s previous Top Safety Pick rating from the IIHS. With these top-notch safety scores, the Fit has proven that a small vehicle can still offer big safety.

“The Fit shows that owning a smaller car doesn’t mean you need to skimp on space, comfort or crashworthiness,” said Art St. Cyr, vice president of auto operations at American Honda Motors. “Honda’s commitment to the safety of your customers and other road users is second to none, and the Fit demonstrates this commitment in a powerful way.”

For many consumers, the Honda Fit already offers the best of both worlds with its superior passenger and cargo space, combined with innovative technologies. These technologies produce the Honda Fit’s five-star safety rating, with an Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure that improves frontal crash energy management.
