5. Unimpressive fuel-economy

Once a fuel economy king, times have changed and the car’s 31 mpg combined rating is short of rivals like the Accent, Fiesta, Yaris and Rio. Worse still, I only managed 29 mpg. This in an era, and a segment, defined by fuel economy.

     I do not find the center stack ugly. It’s clean and easy to use to me. And not faddish.
    Some FIt owners get mileage better than EPA posted values.
    Reliability should be superior to all the other cars you listed for comparison.
    Overall I agree with Consumer Report that the Fit is the best value and best buy all’ round.
    Next model change should see improved gas mileage and horsepower.

    Sorry. Reliability of Fit is about on par with the Yaris, not superior to Yaris.
    Yaris less sporty in handling.
