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.

Are you in the market for a new vehicle? Do you fear that your age and being female may put you at risk of discrimination when you shop? Here at Island Honda, we believe in treating all customers, regardless of gender or experience behind the wheel, with the utmost in respect. We will never belittle or talk down to you.

It’s important to consider your needs before you head to the dealership. Below, we’ve broken down a few possible situations you might find yourself in, and vehicles that could be well-suited to your life stage.

1. I live alone and just need something small.

If you’re living on your own, chances are you don’t require a gigantic vehicle. In fact, if you want to keep it simple, the 2018 Honda Fit Sport might be perfect for you. Under the hood, this subcompact features a 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder engine and a continuously variable transmission. It has power despite its size. In addition, it offers an impressive 15 km/L, which can help you save at the pump!


2. I’m married and we like to travel with our dogs.

If you and your partner are often on-the-go with your pups, you might want something a little bigger. The 2018 Honda CR-V LX could be a fantastic choice for you. In addition to plenty of legroom, this vehicle also offers a number of safety features, including collision mitigation braking and warning, active lane-keeping assist, road departure help, and adaptive cruise control. Rear all-season tires and heated side mirrors are perfect for extra peace of mind when ice and snow are flying.

3. I often drive my grandchildren from place to place.

If you’re forever out with your grandkids, you might want a vehicle that can accommodate a bit more. How about the 2019 Honda Odyssey EX-L Res? This brand new van is well known for its excellent interior space (929 cubic litres behind the third row) and driver legroom (1,040 cubic millimetres). In addition, it boasts 280 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 262 ft-lb of torque at 4,700 rpm.
