You could do worse than to sign up for ZipCar's new ONE>WAY car-sharing service, which will use the new Fit exclusively when the model makes its debut.
ONE>WAY could be the most convenient car-sharing option yet, promising not just one-way travel--you probably guessed that from the name--but a guaranteed parking spot at the end.
Users will simply pick up a 2015 Fit from a designated nearby location, and drop it off at another with a guaranteed parking spot.
ZipCar's images and promotional materials show the 2013 Fit, but users themselves will get to drive the latest model.
ZipCar is stressing the time and environmental benefits of its system, since guaranteed parking means an end to endlessly circling city blocks looking for a space--wasting fuel, adding to congestion and causing pollution.
Scattered throughout cities, and at certain airport locations, these guaranteed spots offer the usual car-share benefits of spontaneity and freedom, with the benefits of a free parking space at the end.
ZipCar has chosen the fit for its small-outside, big-inside practicality--with up to 53 cubic feet of cargo space--as well as versatile seating and of course, its good fuel economy ratings.
The 2015 Honda Fit, equipped with a 1.5-liter, 130-horsepower four-cylinder, has EPA combined gas mileage of 36 mpg, with 33 mpg in the city and 41 mpg highway--all with the continuously-variable transmission.
ONE>WAY users should find them matching those figures without too much difficulty, if our own gas mileage test is anything to go by--though of course, one of the benefits of car-sharing is not having to stand around filling the tank...
