Honda Women Auto Trends Blog New Westminster BC
If you’re a young lady shopping for her first car, you might feel overwhelmed. You want something cool and stylish, but you know that soon you’ll graduate and head off into the workforce. Then, you’ll need a vehicle that is practical and can get you around reliably.

Fortunately, the 2018 Honda Fit Sport is a wonderful choice for young women in your shoes. This subcompact is athletic and filled with racecar-like touches. It definitely makes a statement in the school parking lot. Still, it has the reliability you need, as well as plenty of cargo space (2.1 cubic yards). Even better, you won’t spend a fortune at the pump, thanks to great fuel economy.

To start off, the Fit Sport gets 13.2 km/L, perfect no matter where you drive it. This Honda’s excellent fuel economy is thanks in part to its 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder engine
and continuously variable transmission. It boasts 128 horsepower and 113 lb-ft of torque.

The Fit Sport keeps you feeling pampered, thanks to a WiFi hotspot, heated seats, and a leather steering wheel. Canadian Auto Review was impressed with the vehicle, saying it’s “better than it should be” for the price. Subtle orange body pinstripes throughout contribute to its high-end look.

2018 honda fit sport for sale courtenay duncan bcIf you’re in the market for a new or preowned vehicle in Duncan or Comox Valley, BC, you’ve come to the right place. Car buying can be tough for women for a variety of reasons. We are trained to believe that we know less about the auto industry and how things work under the hood. Many people, men and other ladies alike, believe this, as well. Age is also a factor. If you are both young and female, walking into a dealership is often very intimidating.

I’m here to tell you that it doesn’t need to be. Here are several tips for ensuring a pleasant and productive car-buying experience.

1. Do your research. Don’t expect to stroll into a dealership with limited background information and walk away with a fantastic deal on your next vehicle. You’ll need to arm yourself with specs and prices. It pays to know how much people are paying in your area for the cars you’re looking at.

2. Expect respect. Island Honda is one of many dealerships whose sales staff are courteous and respectful, no matter who you are. If you have experienced less than this anywhere in the past, don’t go back. It’s that simple.

3. Take as long as you need. I once took a guided test drive that was essentially only around the block. Make sure the salesperson you are working with knows about your commute and the type of driving you’re used to so you can mimic it while out on the road.

Ready to stop in for a test drive? The 2018 Honda Fit Sport is a fantastic vehicle just begging to be taken out for a spin. Hurry in today!
