For me, the Fit does not mean Go, but for a tiny hatch car I guess the 09 Honda Fit ranks higher than others. The Honda Fit becomes even more appealing when you look at the lateset numbers showing that Honda and Toyota are now the rulers of the US market, taking over 30% of the business with GM only at 20%.
As for the second generation 09 Honda Fit, it’s got a few upgrades that would intice those sick of high gas prices. For example, the new 4 cylinder 1.5 litre engine now is capable of 117 horsepower, which hauls the shrunk mini-van to 60 in 9 seconds. Not something I’d want to pull out onto the interestate with, but hey anything to save gas money right now…right? The 09 Fit gets a reportedly 33 miles per gallon highway driving.
But let’s not forget that the pice of larger SUVs and Trucks are dropping in price right now as well. The Sport model 09 Honda Fit comes in at $17,580 and that amount will buy you a lot more car and/or truck if you are willing to sacrifice a little gas mileage. So that’s the main reason the Fit does not mean Go for me, but it looks like the perfect car for a girl getting ready to go to college.
