More 2008 Honda Fit pictures





That is one roomy little guy.
Just about 2 inches longer than the current model.

I like it! It looks like a Mercedes A-Class, but half the price! It should do well in Europe, but Americans are still a little reluctant to the "wagon" idea.

It does look less pokemon than the current model. Looks like it was designed by someone that did not watch saturday morning cartoons.

Does the Fit still have the back seat bottoms that flip up for tall items? It's be a shame to lose that unique feature.

And when will the bottom of the windshield meet the front bumper? Next year? Seems to be the trend to just push it further and further away from the driver. How strange to have a tiny car with a dashboard bigger than the rear seat.

Speaking seats, the front ones do look comfy for an economy car.

The Fit is a great little car.

It looks like the Mercedes Benz A-class now.

Nice chick car.

Having the cowl far forward is great for aero, which is great for MPG, which is great for the buyer of this type of vehicle who is cross-shopping for fuel economy and price.

This car seems even better, but I'm just not a fan of extra windows in front of the front doors.....that is what turned me off the new civic as well...

I agree with michael on the front windows. But what a great design, small but roomy, good mileage, and handles well. Reminds me in some ways of my old Saab 900 - it could swallow a whole fridge and still close the hatch..... what happened to the hybrid Fit idea for under 20K ?

Where are the rear headrests in this thing? The ugly Ford Focus doesn't have them and this ugly thing doesn't have them either. I rode in a FIT zipcar two weeks ago and I was totally unimpressed. Pony-up and get a Mini.

Look again.
These are headrests, they are seperate parts from the bench. They do move up. Or you keep them down if noone seats in the back...
I agree they are pretty thin, but they are there.

AWD optional, VB?

Douchebag Jones said...

this is too small to be solf in the us
cars are getting smaller and smaller because they are more and more foreign cars from asian countries where the people are much smaller than american men
these small cra[s aren not safe to drive in out bifg roads
this ewill not be sold here or aoi i n do not now

Vince Burlapp said...

Not sure about AWD. Maybe in Japan.

But not in the US.

Mr. Bag,

Get your head out of your rear end. This car is already sold in the U.S. It is called the Honda Fit, you know, that one that is called the Honda Fit.

Vince, maybe you should start looking in the "Bigotted American Dictionary" for words to use so that Douchebag follow along. He is having trouble understanding your title "More 2008 Honda Fit pictures."

From what I understand, the "Fit Hybrid" idea... that so called Mule/prototype? It will be a model, (separate?) from the lineup.....
wholly hybrid only..no other versions(gas only, diesel only, etc..). And, It was a disguise... a Fit Front end, with some weird wagon(van?) they sell overseas(Japan), and they were doing some disguised testing, and I thought they said it might be slightly larger than the Fit.
Who knows?
I do not know if it is planned as a Civic replacement, or Honda is making a version from the Fit...
but I hope they say something "official" soon....before Summer of 08, when I will be looking @ new vehicles.
Even a 20K Hybrid with 50+ MPG, and useful....would be ok by me.

From the rumormill of 1 honda dealership: 2009, Hybrid,maybe Fit platfrom,but sporty looking.
And really inexpensive.
This Fit , though, went from weird wagon looks to odd minivan looks.
Why?
I would rather have a small 5 door hatch that does not look like a minivan/wagon thing.
They have been built( Elantra GT and Reno) before, and looked good, like a normal car should, lol.

I was really excited when I saw the road test for this on insideline...until they stated it has no spare to allow more cargo room. Really, no spare? Sorry but I like to know if I get a flat I won't be stranded in the middle of nowhere. Huge mistake by Honda here. They lost a potential buyer on that alone. I'll wait for the Nissan Cube, which will hopefully not be foolish enough to remove a spare tire for a minor amount of extra cargo space.

Has anyone else noticed the ignition switch? I'm not sure if "Keyless ignition" is already available in the JDM version, or if it will only be available in the new '09 JDM version, but it certainly appears in these photos to have a keyless ignition set-up. My sister has the same set up in her Nissan Versa and it's quite handy.

Are you sure that it doesn't have runflats or something. Runflats do seem expensive for a car of that size and price, but you would think that these days they would have to have some backup system in place.
