Introduction
Just as gasoline prices were nudging up toward $3 a gallon, Honda, Toyota and Nissan introduced new sub-compact cars to the U.S. automotive market for the 2007 model year. Honda's was the Fit. The idea was to create what Honda terms "the ideal small car for a new age."

While the Fit was new to the States, it was based on a model Honda had been selling in other countries since 2001. Now, with the approach of the 2009 model year, Honda introduces a second-generation Fit that the automaker hopes will even better suit the American automotive tastes because it is longer, wider and more powerful. Honda also says the new Fit will be sportier thanks to improved suspension, steering and body rigidity.
