2009 Honda Fit: MPGs In The Land Of SUVs

October 12, 2009


"Nice car. What kind of mileage does it get?"

The guy directing people on where to park their vehicles at yesterday's Fresno Fair was asking me about the Fit as I shut off its engine and began unloading my family for a day of cows, corndogs, amusement rides and famers' tans.

"Oh, about 35 mpg on the highway."

"Thirty five?" he asked. "Dang, that's pretty good. What car is this? A Honda?"

I told him it was a Fit and that they cost about $16,000. "Huh," was all he said, but I took that to mean that he was at least a little impressed. I, however, was quite pleased to have the Fit. Its luggage area had enough space for our gear, its small footprint made it easy to park, and its orange paint made it easy to spot once we were leaving. The more I drive our Honda Fit, the more I truly like it.
