Honda's throwing a new Fit in New York, and unlike those thrown by the celebuclowns over on Gawker, this Fit is entirely deserved.
In a press release posted late last night, Honda says that an all-new Fit will make its debut at the New York auto show next month.
"The current Fit has been a tremendous success for Honda with its spacious, versatile interior and a wealth of standard features in a compact, fuel-efficient and affordable package," said Honda's Dick Colliver, in the release. "The all-new Honda Fit will reconfirm that small can in fact be big."
The Fit only joined the U.S. lineup for the automaker as a 2007 model, but had been on sale in Japan since 2001 until Honda showed a second-generation car at the 2007 Tokyo motor show. That car, when it makes it to America, will likely come with a 118-hp, 1.5-liter four and a choice of manual or automatic five-speed gearboxes.
Along with the new Fit, Honda will also bring its Pilot concept and the FCX Clarity fuel-cell car to its display at the Javits center.
