Honda Fit Japanese Car of The YearS

The second-generation Honda Fit may not be Godzilla, but it's at least a Gamera. The beloved little Honda beat out both the Nissan Skyline and Subaru Impreza for the coveted Japanese Car of The Year award. This is quite the turn around from last year, when the large, Mothra-like Lexus LS was given the award.

The second-gen Fit has been a success, garnering more than 20,000 orders in the first two weeks of sale. Honda plans to sell at least 12,000 a month in Japan, plus an untold amount in Europe and North America. This is the second COTY win for the Honda Fit. [Reuters]
