2016 Honda Fit

The 2016 Honda Fit was recently named one of the 10 Top Picks of 2016, aka the Best Cars of the Year for 2016, by Consumer Reports. The trusted consumer organization offers unbiased reviews and recommendations based on in-depth research. To be a Best Car of the Year for 2016, a vehicle must be a leader when it comes to performance, reliability, owner satisfaction, and safety. The Honda Fit has obviously made the cut in all of those areas.

The Fit Wins in Consumer Reports Rankings

Consumer Reports is the largest non-profit consumer organization in the country. In order to provide unbiased reviews, Consumer Reports actually anonymously purchases vehicles off dealer lots in order to guarantee that they are driving a vehicle that is representative of what other drivers would find. The 10 Top Picks of 2016, are the ten cars that Consumer Reports rated the best.

Consumer Reports has a specific way of defining what it means to be the best car to buy. The 2016 Honda Fit had to achieve top ratings in all of these areas to garner this accolade:

  • Performance: A winning car must rank among the best in its class in Consumer Reports road tests.
  • Reliability: Reliability must be at least average or better, as predicted by Consumer Reports subscribers.
  • Owner Satisfaction: To achieve Best Car status, a vehicle must achieve solid owner satisfaction scores as reported by actual drivers.
  • Safety: Every vehicle that wins a Top Pick rating must achieve successful crash test ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, if tested.

The 2016 Honda Fit excels in all of those areas. In Consumer Reports testing it achieved a Road Test Score of 67, and an exceptional reliability score. Consumer Reports said, “Thinking about the first new car for yourself or someone in your family? This Honda may just be the perfect fit.”*
