Watch out, Toyota—Honda is coming for you in the green car segment! The editors at Green Car Journal recently announced that the 2015 Honda Fit is a finalist for Green Car of the Year—a prestigious award that recognizes the most eco-friendly cars in the industry. With a complete redesign and class-leading EPA-estimated fuel economy, the Fit is a top choice for this award, showing that you don’t need to go hybrid to be fuel-efficient.
“The new Fit shows once again that Honda understands the need to not only deliver desired levels of style, functionality, and performance in its new products, but enhanced environmental achievement as well,” said Ron Cogan, editor and publisher of Green Car Journal and CarsofChange.com. “When you can make a model like the Fit more stylish and versatile than the one that preceded it while also providing greater power, higher mpg, and lower greenhouse gas emissions, that’s an achievement deserving of recognition.”
The 2015 Fit offers an EPA-estimated 36 mpg combined to consumers, while providing fun-to-drive performance with its Earth Dreams Technology 1.5-liter engine and either six-speed manual transmission or CVT. Combining this terrific fuel economy, along with its ample cargo room, the Fit is the perfect car for anyone who needs a versatile mode of transport.
