The 2018 Honda Civic, previously recognized by Kelley Blue Book as their “Small Car Best Buy of 2018,”2 was named on the list. “…the Civic is a well-rounded car offered as a sedan or coupe that’s comfortable, roomy, practical, efficient, packed with cool tech, and a blast to drive,” said Kelley Blue Book. “And Honda tops that off with a budget-friendly starting price and a strong reputation for reliability and resale value.”

The 2018 Civic offers an engaging combination of style, comfort, and features, all for less money than you might expect. Available in a sporty 2-door coupe and a sleek 4-door sedan, the Civic is an excellent choice for buyers in the compact segment. Sophisticated, modern styling turns heads on the road, while a technology-packed, comfortable interior makes every drive a great experience. The Honda Civic is an iconic vehicle, and for good reason. For buyers, it’s a smart choice that doesn’t require compromise.

The 2018 Honda Fit was also featured on the list. “This diminutive hatchback has a feature called the Magic Seat that gives the interior space and versatility that rivals that of a small SUV,” described Kelley Blue Book. “The subcompact Fit also happens to be fun to drive. That combination of practicality and pep at an affordable price makes this a hard car to resist.”

The 2018 Fit packs the versatility of a hatchback and the features you expect from a modern vehicle into a compact, affordable choice. The second row Magic Seat mentioned by Kelley Blue Book offers drivers four interior configurations:

  • Utility Mode — with the Magic Seat completely folded down, the Fit offers 52.7 cubic feet of maximum cargo space3
  • Long Mode — with the right rear seat and front passenger seat folded down, the Fit can haul cargo up to 7 feet, 9 inches long3
  • Tall Mode — with the Magic Seat folded up, the Fit’s rear row offers a cargo area nearly four feet tall3
  • Refresh Mode — with the front head restraints removed, the front seats can be folded back to provide lounge seating4

The 4-door Honda Fit combines fun and function in an attractive package that deserves a look if you’re in the market for a subcompact vehicle.
