Drivers seeking the best small cars in the Milwaukee Metro area have no shortage of options available to them, but we think Honda vehicles are some of the best choices for area drivers. You surely already know of the Honda Civic, and the latest model is available in both sedan and coupe body styles, but the Honda Fit is also a great choice for a small, fuel-efficient car for city or suburban drivers.
Many drivers come to small cars like these for their price and fuel economy, and while the Civic and Fit are both affordable and efficient, there’s so much more that helps to make them so popular among Milwaukee drivers.
The 2016 Honda Fit LX 6MT is priced at just $15,890 (MSRP),* and specs like these make this five-passenger hatchback a smart choice for many Milwaukee drivers:
Fuel Economy: The 2016 Honda Fit LX with CVT earns an EPA-estimated 41 mpg on the highway** from its peppy 1.5L 4-cylinder (capable of 130 hp, giving this small car quite the zip).
Features: The 2016 Fit’s base LX trim comes with a multi-angle rearview camera, Bluetooth for phone and audio, steering wheel–mounted controls, and the Honda Magic Seat for an easily expandable and customizable cargo area. Upgrades like leather upholstery and satellite-linked navigation can take your Fit to new levels.
Spacious Interior: Don’t let the “subcompact” label fool you; the Fit is spacious, seating five passengers in up to 95.7 cubic feet of space. The rear cargo area goes from 16.6 cubic feet to as much as 52.7 cubic feet.
It’s tough to sum up just what it is that makes the Civic so remarkable without simply putting you behind the wheel, but we think features like these make it one of the best small cars:
There are quite a few similarities between the 2016 Civic LX Sedan with 6MT, priced at $18,640 (MSRP)* and the 2016 Civic LX Coupe with 6MT, priced at $19,050 (MSRP).* Honda differentiates the two as well, giving the interior of the coupe a sportier style and some bolder color options to help evoke the sports car look and feel many drivers look for in a small coupe. The Civic Coupe trades the EX trim of the Civic Sedan for the LX-P trim, and changes up a few of the standard features, but you will be able to find many of the same amenities on the coupe as on the sedan.
It’s all of these options combined with the fuel economy and technology of the Civic that make it one of the best small cars on the market.
