The Accord, Civic Hybrid & Fit all make the Forbes List!
Recognized for helping to make the daily grind a little less grueling, three Honda models were recently named to Forbes’ list of “Best Cars for Commuters, 2011.”
The annual rankings are based on data from Consumer Reports’ evaluations, observed fuel efficiency in CR testing, and both front headroom and front legroom. As a result, the vehicles making the grade here are all ideal choices for the 42 million Americans who spend more than half an hour each morning on the way to the job—and the 7 million whose a.m. commute takes over an hour.
Accord—Honda engineers focused significant energy on improving the Accord’s fuel efficiency for the 2011 model year, and that effort paid off with both the EPA and with CR. The former rated Honda’s popular mid-size sedan as being capable of 23 mpg city/34 mpg highway/27 mpg combined, while the latter returned an as-observed highway mark of 37 mpg. The Accord also delivers an impressive 41.4 inches of front headroom and 42.5 inches of front legroom.
Civic Hybrid—One of the country’s fastest-selling hybrids—sales of the car jumped more than 155 percent to kick off the year—the Civic Hybrid returned a stellar highway fuel-efficiency mark of 47 mpg for Consumer Reports, while it’s EPA rated at 40 mpg city/43 mpg highway/41 mpg combined. And notably, the 2012 model, set to debut later this year, is slated to showoff an EPA combined rating of 45 mpg. Front headroom/legroom in the current model: 39.4 inches/42.2 inches.
Fit—Highly acclaimed for its surprisingly roomy interior—boasting 40.4 inches of front headroom and 41.3 inches of front legroom—the Fit can achieve EPA marks of 28 mpg city/35 mpg highway/31 mpg combined, but CR upped the ante here by reaching 39 mpg highway in its own testing.
Plus, all three offer Honda’s traditionally high levels of standard and available content, including premium audio systems and advanced navigation systems, to help lower the tension levels during the trip to work.
Commuting to work may never exactly qualify as “fun,” but as this research clearly shows, it helps to have a Honda
