What price fashion? The 2009 Honda Fit Sport sacrifices a couple of fuel-economy points for cosmetic add-ons.
Good to see visibility improvements. As an owner of a 2003 model, I know that visibility is a problem on the Fit/Jazz. Besides the A-pillar obstructions, the rear wiper on my car seems to be designed for a right-side drive version, leaving a large blind spot to the rear-left. And the convex outside mirrors (both sides in Europe) are not good for spotting much, let alone gauging distance.
These pictures don't show the rear of the car. I'm pretty sure the rear aerodynamics are where a lot of fuel economy is lost. Fuel economy is still better than any other car I have ever owned.
Can you load a Mountain Bike inside? This car would be a
great ride for Bikers.....
