2016 Honda Fit

2016 Honda Fit

The 2016 Honda Fit is a winning subcompact hatchback. If you’re looking for a vehicle that combines versatility, the latest features, and incredible fuel economy, then the Fit should be at the top of your list here in the Frankfort and Orland Park, IL area. But you don’t just have to take our word for it. Take a look at some of the excellent reviews that the Fit has accumulated recently!

Edmunds awarded the 2016 Honda Fit an A rating, praising the vehicle for offering “unmatched small car versatility thanks to unique rear seat design; high fuel economy; spacious seating and cargo area; [and] excellent visibility. . . . An amazingly accommodating cabin, strong fuel economy and competitive features establish the 2016 Honda Fit as a top choice in the subcompact car segment.”

Kelley Blue Book

“The Honda Fit 5-door hatchback is a great pick for two groups,” writes Keith Buglewicz for Kelley Blue Book. “First, there are off-to-college youngsters who want an affordable, efficient and reliable car with all the modern connectivity features found in more expensive cars. Then there are empty-nesters looking to downsize without compromising rear-seat or cargo room.”

The Car Connection

“The Fit sets the benchmarks for interior space, utility, and safety for small hatchbacks,” writes Marty Padgett at The Car Connection. “It’s not as entertaining to drive as it once was, and some minor fit and finish niggles could use some attention, but by a wide margin, it’s our top choice in its class.”

Kelsey Mays writes at that, “With the 2016 Fit, Honda has concocted an elixir of most things small-car shoppers want, and the results are mighty desirable. If you’re shopping for an entry-level car, make sure to fit the Fit onto your list.”

Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the Honda Accord, One of America’s Best-Selling Cars

2016 Honda Accord SedanIt has been 40 years since the first Honda Accord hit the U.S. market. Here at Community Honda of Orland Park, we realize that while this is a significant milestone for any automobile, it is made all the more notable by the fact that the Accord isn’t showing any signs of slowing down with age. Not only is the perennially young-at-heart Honda Accord the most popular four-door among drivers 35 years of age and younger, it is also one of the best-selling sedans in America, with a whopping 12.7 million sold over the past four decades.

As we celebrate the 40th birthday of the Honda Accord, let’s take a look at some of the highlights from its storied career in America.

Making the Best of the Best

Since it first went on sale in the U.S. in 1976, Americans have, on average, purchased a Honda Accord every two minutes. That alone is a pretty astounding statistic. The combination of its smart design, innovative features, and efficient powertrains, as well as the fact that Honda continually upgrades the Accord to meet the demands of consumers, has contributed to the Accord being named to Car and Driver magazine’s 10Best list* an unmatched 30 times across that award’s 34 year history. In 1982 the Accord became the very first vehicle from a Japanese automaker to be produced in the U.S., and more than 10 million have been manufactured since that date.

The current Honda Accord remains a favorite of drivers throughout Chicagoland. Appealing, well equipped with the latest tech features, and boasting impressive fuel economy numbers, the 2017 Accord can also be had with the new Honda Sensing system. This innovative suite of advanced safety features includes forward collision warning and automatic braking, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, and more.
