Re: It's Finally Coming to the USA!

The Fit still seems like a great little car, however I think the new VW Rabbit will blow the Honda out of the water! It's built on the Jetta/ Audi A3 frame.
With a 5-cylinder engine, top safety features and way more options than Honda...... only reliability, acceleration and mpg have a chance to keep the Fit in the game.

Re: It's Finally Coming to the USA!

The Fit and the Rabbit really aren't even in the same class. The Fit is designed for a daily driver car. Good fuel economy and lots of cargo space. Maybe I'm wrong, but I see the Rabbit as more of a performance oriented car than that.

Re: It's Finally Coming to the USA!

The Rabbit is a commuter/ small family car with 4 doors/ hatchback. It only has 5 normally aspirated cylinders which is appropriate for its weight. The version of the Rabbit that is "performance oriented" would probably be the Audi A3/ VW GTI. Those versions are quicker. If Honda made a Fit-si then it would be up against the A3/ GTI I believe. I've seen both in person. Hopefully IIHS will test both of them soon as my family will be buying the safer one.

Re: It's Finally Coming to the USA!

The FIT is awesome! I am a huge lover of Honda (DUH!) My family swears by them. But we parked next to a FIT on Saturday and I looked in it. It was awesome! And for all you Honda Homies (god im a loser haha!) SUPER STREET just bought one for their new "Project Car." So you should subscribe (I love SS) or just pick up the next few months issues!!!
