I didn't like the fit at first, thinking it really was a shrunken minivan, but I've been seeing more and more of them lately and they are nice.

I heard rumors of a possible hybrid version of the Fit coming to the states next year. 50mpg for less that 20K, would sound like a winner to me.

It doesn't look too bad actually, except for the really pointy nose, the way it drops down seems odd, but still something I might even consider when the Vibe's lease is up. (although it is a tough act to follow).Some of the ad copy I find amusing though:"Menacing looks and edgy styling""Four cylinders of Silent Thunder""Metro Dynamo""The Fit is Go"

I test drove an '08 and actually liked it quite a bit. Parked next to the Vibe you can see that they are actually the same size.
