Honda Fit Sport: Sticks Are for Kids...

March 08, 2007

...of course I mean that in a good way. I know the Honda Fit Sport is available in automatic (with steering-wheel-mounted shift paddles nonetheless), but I can't imagine that would be as much fun to drive as the stick-shift model. Something about zooming around traffic and flicking the gearshift to get that boost to pass that makes this little econocar go-kartlike. Sure it has just 109 horsepower and five gears to run through, but here it's not about the speed but about the zip...

This morning, I actually enjoyed my little 3-mile commute on city streets. Instead of zoning out and just focusing on getting to Point B, I danced the Fit around the other drones. And for a second I daydreamed I was playing GT4...except slower of course.
