    "All new" '09 Honda Fit... already?

    Hell, the car has only been out for a year....

    American Honda Motor Co., Inc., announced that its all-new Honda Fit will debut at the 2008 New York International Auto Show (NYIAS).

    "The current Fit has been a tremendous success for Honda with its spacious, versatile interior and a wealth of standard features in a compact, fuel-efficient and affordable package," said Dick Colliver, executive vice president of American Honda. "The all-new Honda Fit will reconfirm that small can in fact be big."

    Additionally, a prototype of the Honda Pilot will make its first appearance in New York at the Jacob Javits Center. The prototype conveys design features of the more boldly-styled 2009 Pilot, set to debut in spring 2008, and emphasizes authentic SUV styling, clever and more accommodating interior packaging and advanced technologies for safety, fuel efficiency and convenience.

    Along with the Pilot prototype, the FCX Clarity will make its New York debut. The FCX Clarity is a next-generation, zero-emissions, hydrogen-powered fuel cell vehicle based on the Honda V Flow fuel cell platform. Featuring tremendous improvements to driving range, power, weight and efficiency - and boasting a low-slung, dynamic and sophisticated appearance previously unachievable in a fuel cell vehicle - the FCX Clarity marks the significant progress that Honda continues to make in advancing the real-world performance and appeal of the hydrogen-powered fuel cell car.

    The Fit has already been on sale in other countries for several years. While it's only been in the US for two years, it's actually a 4-5 year old design.

    I'd like to see them make a coupe based on the Fit platform.
