Honda's totally-redesigned Fit (Jazz to the rest of the world) is set to debut at the 2008 New York International Auto Show. "The current Fit has been a tremendous success for Honda," U.S. exec veep Dick Colliver boasts [via PRNewswire] "The all-new Honda Fit will reconfirm that small can in fact be big." Yes, well the old Civic did that and look how that thing porked-up. Anyway, Honda will also be showing (in the pregnancy sense of the word) a prototype Pilot that "emphasizes authentic SUV styling." NYIAS is going down at the Jacob Javits Convention Center from March 21st through the 30th (full schedule here). TTAC's Robert Farago and Justin Berkowtiz will be confronting the suits on your behalf, only earlier.

Terrible Front Leg Room = Jeep Liberty. One of the worst and most difficult SUVs to get into the drivers seat if you are > 6' tall. Plus it hardly has any room inside. Just a complete failure on Chrysler / Jeeps part. I wonder if the Nitro has the same problem - I won't go near it for fear of it's dog electrocutions.
Well, was the initial naming of this car, "the Honda Fitta", one of the first viral marketing campaigns? The tagline "Small on the outside but large on the inside" made the name even more fun. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honda_Fit#Europe 10 Most Unfortunate Car Names http://www.oddee.com/item_93544.aspx
an aborted Dodge Journey fetus, perhaps?
