Jalopnik Reviews: 2007 Honda Fit Sport, Part 3

Why you should buy this car: Because you want an economical yet sporty car that gets very respectable fuel mileage, has a good measure of practicality, and throws fun to drive into the soup pot of miserly subcompact automotive selections. Because you fancy yourself a apex-carving Pompurin.

Why you should not buy this car: Because you have lived your life maintaining that economy cannot possibly be fun. Because you fancy yourself a tough guy. Because you care more about burnouts than mileage. Because you have a multi-kidlet family.
