The new Fit is so far ahead of the class that its the a the stereotypical Asian child in the classroom. Good driving dynamics, check, unbelievable packaging, check, refined drive, check powerful engine, check, check, check, check. This car is as good or much better in all parameters than any car in its category period. It irritates me to no end when the only criticism someone can level at a car is that they object to the styling, it goes a long way to establish the commenter's lack of intelligence. BTW, to my eye it looks pretty darned good.The EX without leather is the best deal, add a Garmin and go.
Excellent interior space.
Excellent driving dynamics.
Excellent NVH for the price.
For the money it simply doesn't get better than this.
Not a of fan of CVTs in general but as far as CVT's go this is one of the best the breed.
