Honda Adds a New Safety Feature to the Fit: Active Braking
With this new low-speed active braking system, the 2014 Honda Fit will be able to help drivers prevent collisions.


It's with great pride that the team at Bommarito Honda of Hazelwood announce Honda's continued dedication to the safety of area drivers through the new active braking system of the 2014 Honda Fit. The Fit has long represented Honda's commitment to vehicle safety, sporting some of the most advanced safety equipment available, and active braking will join the Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure, full complement of airbags, and many other safety features of the vehicle.

In effect only at low speed (under 18 mph), active braking takes advantage of sensors in the vehicle that can tell when a collision with an inanimate object or another vehicle is likely. When it senses that a driver is about to get into an accident, the Fit will apply the brakes and should come to a stop before colliding. This technology will be especially beneficial at preventing some of the most common city accidents: rear end collisions.

Before this, however, the Fit was a remarkably safe vehicle already, with an Alabama driver having rolled it over seven times and walking away unscathed. In fact, he was eager to get behind the wheel of a brand new Fit as soon as possible.

Other drivers looking to find themselves in a Honda Fit can discover the current model at Bommarito Honda. Special savings underneath the 2013 Honda Really Big Spring Event make it easier than ever to drive home a Fit. Qualified drivers can lease the basic model at $169/month for 36 months.

Many other vehicles are included in the savings as well, such as the award-winning Honda Accord and Civic, the CR-V, Odyssey, and Pilot. Once the Spring Event is over, the savings continue with regular new vehicle specials at Bommarito Honda.

For more information on when the 2014 Fit will be available or to set up a test drive of the current version, drivers can contact the sales team at Bommarito Honda. Located at 330 Brookes Drive in Hazelwood, Missouri, their showroom is open six days a week and features both the full line of new Honda models as well as a wide variety of pre-owned models.
