2009 Honda Fit Sport: Small Made Easy

August 14, 2009

I am not a big fan of small cars - I'd rather have a 5 year old large or midsize sedan than any new subcompact (I know, I'm part of the problem blah blah blah). Still, when comparing super small cars like the Fit, Yaris, Smart and others I'm forced to admit that the Fit is not that bad. Keep the RPMs low and you don't get that thrashy engine noise like on other subcompacts. The reconfigurable rear seats also make the small Fit MUCH easier to live with. If you're a fan of the first Fit - you will like this one even more - a lot more. Got a cash for clunkers car you want to trade in for a more fuel efficient model? The Fit is an excellent choice as is the Ford Focus.

BTW - does anyone out there actually prefer small cars for reasons other than better fuel economy?
