2017 Honda Ridgeline RTL-E redThe brand new 2017 Honda Ridgeline is in stock now here at Community Honda, and according to new testing conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the Ridgeline Black Edition and RTL-E offer the best headlights of any pickup on the market today*. When equipped with the available LED projector beam headlamps that come standard on the Black Edition and RTL-E trim levels, the Ridgeline received the best possible Good headlight rating according to the IIHS*.

Ridgeline Headlights Outperform Competition

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety instituted this new test for this year. Out of eleven different pickup models tested, the Honda Ridgeline when equipped with the LED projector headlights in RTL-E and Black Edition trims was the only one to achieve the Good rating*.

The difference between the ratings is stark. The Ridgeline with the LED low beams illuminated 358 feet of roadway ahead, while the worst performing model, the Chevrolet Colorado, lit up only 123 feet of roadway*. For reference, the Colorado is a midsize truck and a direct competitor of the Ridgeline. Even the 2017 Ford F-150 received the Poor rating from the IIHS, and they noted that the LED lights produced an unacceptable level of glare*.

The 2017 Honda Fit Combines Versatility and Efficiency

2017 Honda FitThe 2017 Honda Fit might be a subcompact, but it offers a surprising amount of versatility. Thanks to intelligent engineering, the Honda Fit delivers both amazing interior space and utility paired with exceptionally high fuel economy estimates from the EPA. That’s the kind of combination that should appeal to any driver in the Frankfort area looking for a small car right now.

The Honda Fit Versatility

To achieve unheard-of versatility in such a small footprint, Honda engineers had to think creatively. They moved the fuel tank into the center of the vehicle rather than put it in under the rear seat like usual. What does that achieve? It makes the Magic Seat possible. The rear split folding Magic Seat doesn’t just fold down – it folds down flat. The seat also folds up so that you can fit tall, standing items, where the seats would usually be. To add exceptional capacity for long items, the front passenger seat can also fold forward, making it possible to fit even more cargo in the cabin. All said and done, the Honda Fit can carry up to 52.7 cubic feet of luggage with the rear seats folded down.

Honda Fit Efficiency

In the Honda Fit LX trim level with continuously variable transmission, you get an EPA rating of 33 mpg city/40 mpg highway*. The Fit offers efficiency that’s among the best in its class, and drivers from Orland Park will appreciate having to fill up less.

The Honda Fit Offers All Around Reliability

The Honda Fit gives you high fuel economy and plenty of cargo space. That should make it appealing to any driver who needs a budget-friendly commuter, or any driver who needs a versatile and efficient car for long drives.
