Named the “Hottest Sport Compact” at this year’s SEMA Show, the 2015 Honda Fit arrived in STYLE with 9 customs to display! Six of which were part of Honda’s Fit Performance Project. Honda officially launched Project Fit  back in August and provided performance shops with a 2015 Fit to customize, for a planned unveiling at this year’s SEMA show. The progression of the vehicle projects was documented on Honda’s official Tumblr page hondaloves.tumblr.com. The performance shops featured for Project Fit included Bisimoto Engineering, Kontrabrands, MAD Industries, Spoon Sports USA, Tjin Edition and the award-winning Kenny Vinces.

The Honda booth at the SEMA Show was highlighted by the Fit customized by Tjin Edition, who was voted as the Fan Favorite in the 2015 Fit Performance Project. The fan favorite was determined by which project vehicle received the most buzz on social media. The progress of each car was documented virtually with interactive photos, videos and animated GIFs, adding a unique touch to the ambitious project!

Three additional personalized 2015 Honda Fit vehicles on display included a Fit B-spec race car prepped for competition by Honda Performance Development (HPD), Honda’s North American racing company; a Fit loaded with available dealer-installed Honda Genuine Accessories; and an additional Fit personalized by prominent tuner, Bisimoto, on behalf of Norm Reeves Honda in response to fan feedback prompted through the 2015 Fit Performance Project.

“The 2015 Fit is a worthy addition to Honda’s strong heritage of developing tuned sport compact vehicles, and it wears the mantle of “Hottest Sport Compact” well,” said Jeff Conrad, SVP & General Manager of Honda Division, American Honda Motor Co, Inc. “Fun to drive, versatile and a great value, the new Fit does so many things right, and it’s great to see it becoming a popular platform for owner personalization.”

Honda Rearview Camera First to be Recognized as Advanced Tech Feature by the NHTSA

2014 Honda Odyssey Rearview Camera

One of my favorite safety features in a new Honda are  the rearview and blindspot cameras. Honda has been recognized by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) as part of its 5-Star Safety Ratings program (also referred to as the New Car Assessment Program NCAP), with practically ALL Honda and Acura models with rearview camera systems becoming the first vehicles to be recognized by the U.S. Department of Transportation for having met its Advanced Technology Feature performance criteria. You can view safety ratings at Safecar.gov here: http://1.usa.gov/Pv0lKq

The Honda Accord Sedan, Accord Coupe, Accord Hybrid, Accord Plug-in, Civic Coupe, Civic Sedan, Civic Hybrid, Civic Natural Gas, Crosstour, CR-V, CR-Z, Fit EV, Odyssey, Pilot and Ridgeline earned the first recognition from NHTSA for application of recommended rearview camera systems (referred to as rearview video systems by the NHTSA)

“Rearview cameras are an integral part of Honda’s approach to enhance driver visibility,” said Art St. Cyr, vice president of product planning and logistics at American Honda. “By the 2015 model year all Honda and Acura models will have rearview cameras standard on all models, yet another example of how our company is committed to enhancing the visibility and safety of our customers and everyone on the road.”

NCAP advanced tech features also include Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW) systems which are also featured on many Honda vehicles. More than 94% of Honda and Acura vehicles sold in the US in 2013 were equipped with standard rearview cameras. These features all use a camera mounted behind the windshield or a front mount radar system to warn drivers of an impending collision with a vehicle detected in front, or to alert drivers if the car is moving out of a detected lane.

Honda  operates two of the world’s most sophisticated crash test facilities and is responsible for pioneering efforts in areas of crash testing, airbag technology, collision compatibility and pedestrian safety. Honda also leads the industry for 2014 in third party crash test ratings  with more models rated TOP SAFETY PICK and TOP SAFETY PICK+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) than any other manufacturer.

You can view TOP SAFETY PICKs for 2014 at  http://www.iihs.org/iihs/ratings/TSP-List to compare brands. And if you’re ready to test drive a NEW Honda OR have questions regarding safety features and more, we are here to help! Do not hesitate to contact us!
