The Best Small Cars for Albany Drivers

  • 2016 Honda Civic

    Finding the best small car can feel like searching for a needle in a haystack; there are just so many vehicles to choose from. Honda has built a reputation for affordable small cars, and we think a Capital Region Honda Dealer is the right place for you to start looking for the best small car in the Albany area.

Priced at $15,890 MSRP (for 6MT models),* the 2016 Honda Fit LX is one of the most spacious and well-equipped hatchbacks available to Albany drivers. With three different trims available and claiming awards like U.S. News & World Report’s Best Cars for the Money 2015** and a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Safety Rating from the NHTSA,*** we’re confident the Fit is one of the best small cars on the road.

Standard Features: As one of the leaders in standard features, Honda has equipped the Fit with Bluetooth HandsFreeLink, a multi-angle rearview camera, daytime running lights, an Eco Assist feature, cruise control, and more.

Honda Fit

Interior Space: The cabin of the Fit has up to 95.7 cubic feet of passenger space, but if you need to expand the 16.6 cubic feet of cargo room, just fold down part or all of the second-row Honda Magic Seat to maximize cargo space.
