Honda fans doubt 2015 Fit to outsell Civic anytime soon
Looking to the history of the Honda Civic, still North America’s number one selling compact, Torque News took American Honda Motors lead and stated the obvious.
The redesigned, sportier and better handling 2015 Fit utility hatch would eventually overtake and unseat the ever popular Honda Civic sedan. Our readers argued that Fit could not possibly replace the aging Civic concept based on volume sales alone. Several Honda Civic fans put Torque News through the proverbial wringer over this assertion. None the less, we shall press the argument.
Young drivers love the look and utility of Civic Sport Hatchback. Honda doesn’t produce one for the North America market. A petition to bring the Civic R Type to the U.S. has(to date) fallen on deaf ears in the halls of Honda. None the less, watching the unveiling of the 2015 Fit at the New York International Auto Show, Honda’s message was clear. The redesigned and more powerful entry level hatchback was targeting the Gen-Y demographic.
Civic: Supersize me…
