Just because you have a tight budget, doesn’t mean you don’t want something cool. If you are shopping for a new car and want to stay under $20,000, we have some great news. Both the 2018 Honda Civic and Fit were named to Kelley Blue Book’s list of “10 Coolest New Cars Under $20,000 for 2018.”*
This recognition is given out to vehicles that are not only affordable, but also offer great features, versatility, style, comfort, and a bit of fun.
The Civic received high praise for its well-rounded nature and the fact that it is available as either a sedan or coupe. KBB editors were also impressed with its abundant technology, practicality, fuel economy, and overall fun-to-drive personality.
For the Fit, Kelley Blue Book’s editors noted, “This diminutive hatchback has a feature called the Magic Seat that gives the interior space and versatility that rivals that of a small SUV. The combination of practicality and pep at an affordable price makes the Fit a hard car to resist.”
Another benefit to both the Civic and Fit is the availability of advanced safety features even on the base trim levels. The CVT-equipped Fit comes standard with adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning and intervention, and forward collision warning with emergency automatic braking. These features are available on the Civic as part of the Honda Sensing package.
