You Got to Be Kidding Me!

2009 Honda Fit

Posted in Four Wheels, Going Green, Uncategorized by Stacy McMahon on August 20, 2008

AutoblogGreen has a first drive report on the ’09 Fit. Along with scooters, the Toyota Yaris (available as a 5-door for ’09) and various hybrids, the ’08 Fit became a leading indicator of the gas price crunch. Underappreciated by buyers for the first half of the model year, then sold out for the second. The automotive press appreciated it from the beginning, though, and it sounds as if the solid handling and refined (for a microcar) ride and NVH have been successfully retained in the new model. While I know the best economic option is to keep my existing car, this one (along with the Fiat 500, which will hopefully come across the pond next year) is on my shortlist should I need a replacement.

Update: Car and Driver has their first drive posted, and they confirm what I’ve been reading on sites like TOV – the new Fit will be more refined and less teenager-y, but with the same downtown parkability and sustainable gas mileage. Perfect!
