Looking for a Dog-Friendly Car? Take a Look at the Honda Fit

There’s nothing like letting off steam after a long week in Silicon Valley by taking your dog out for a drive. Whether you’re just heading out for a pup cup, or planning to make friends at Roy M. Butcher Dog Park, you want a vehicle that’s comfortable for the both of you. The good people at Autotrader recently put together their list of the “10 Best Cars for Dog Lovers", and the Honda Fit earned a spot on the roster!

Autotrader editors determined a handful of factors that make a vehicle better for dogs, including available easy-clean leather seats, tinted windows, and low, level cargo floors. A car that also offers rear air vents and cargo-are tie-downs is also an advantage, since the air vents team with the tinted windows to keep your pupper cool, while the tie-downs can be used to secure either a harness or a crate.

The Honda Fit was named thanks to the compact car’s tall roof and flat-folding rear seats, which combined to make it easier for dogs to stand up in the cargo area. A low stance makes it easy for all types of dogs to enter and exit the vehicle, while the versatile interior can be equipped with leather seats and the convenience of Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ smartphone integration to provide entertainment for your travels.

We invite you to swing by our San Jose Honda dealership, conveniently located near I-280, to check out the Honda Fit or any of the other new Honda models we offer. We look forward to seeing you soon!
