The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
5.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The all-new 2009 Honda Fit’s appearance might not be pulse-quickening, but with a peppy fun-to-drive character, an astonishing amount of interior space, and a high-quality feel throughout, it’s close to the perfect affordable small car. The 2008 Toyota Yaris is one of the cheapest, and cheapest to run, of all new vehicles.
