2007 Honda Fit Long-Term Road Test

2007 Honda Fit Sport: Looks Aren't Everything

August 20, 2007

Sorry, I know this isn't a picture of our silver long-term 2007 Honda Fit but I left my digicam at home. Anyway, ever mistake the Fit for the Chevy Aveo hatchback? I do all the time, well, on the rare occasion that I spot an Aveo on the road. Sure, it only takes a second for me to realize my error but the fact that I pause at all says something to me. Of course the Fit appears to have more tone, looking like an Aveo that's spent too many hours at the gym. But its similarity was one of the reasons I wasn't keen on the Fit at first. It ain't exactly cute.

But looking at both photos the Fit definitely has more attitude and flair. Check out those side skirts. And its windows look bigger than the Aveo as well, affording better visibility.

Personally, I think the Honda looks better than other doppelganger subcompacts like the Scion xA and Nissan Versa. What do you think?
