Unfortunately GM has nothing in the B-segment that will even come close to touching this car. Sorry, the Aveo 5 does not come close. Even the 1st generation Honda Fit is superior to the Aveo.

Beat, please!

The vehicle appears very odd.

Although its acceptible in the asian market due to large amounts of traffic and huge populated areas, a compact car sure is the direction, when small individuals can fit inside without any restraints.

But in the US that car is the size of a golf cart.

I dislike it because I am 6'5 and about 220, no way can I enjoy the drive in this micromachine, I need a GM.

Unfortunately for Honda's competition, this vehicle was actually engineered very well. It is projected to receive 5-star crash test ratings all around, with possibly the exception of the rollover test. For a vehicle that is approximately 160" in length, it actually is very safe and has quite a bit of room. Typically this type of vehicle (small hatchback) would not be very popular in the U.S., but Honda dealers could not keep this car on the lot last year. I read that some Honda Fit customers waited more than 4-months to get their Fit. I guess many were having "fits" waiting for their Fit. Sorry, could not resist! :rolleyes:

We will have to wait and see how popular this second generation will be. Based on the pics I've seen, I actually like the fit and finish of this car.

I really liked the way the 1st generation drove and handled. I never thought a subcompact could drive so well. It looked dorky however, and that has carried over into the 2nd generation. If I had a long commute, this would be at the top of my shopping list.

The Fit is so dorky looking.
The fit may be a lot of things, but hot is something I can't see. It's about as hot as an Aveo.

Say what you like. The proof is in the sales figures.

Looks like a shrunken KIA Rondooo!!

For all the credit Honda gets for products and market savvy, the Fit doesn't offer a sunroof. I know, most of its competitors don't either. However, for me no sunroof is a deal breaker!
That's a pretty darn good point. I do enjoy my sunroof from time to time. I have a feeling in a subcompact where inches are so precious, the sunroof just cuts too much head room.

The HHR is 2.5 inches taller with 1" less head room and still offers a sunroof. For that matter the Nissan Versa is .4" taller with the same head room and offers a sun roof. I suspect it's the thinking that your buying an inexpensive car so you don't deserve options, or we don't want it to steal any Civic sales. Either way it's a turn off IMO.
