Exterior

The Fit currently comes only as a four-door hatchback in base and Sport trim levels. The Sport adds front and rear fascias and side skirts that make the car look as though it sits lower. There are also standard front fog lights and a spoiler above the liftgate. The Fit is a wedgelike affair that resembles many of today's larger vehicles that attempt to straddle the line between wagon and minivan. Of course, there are no sliding doors, and the rear end avoids the frumpy look of a minivan's.
