Speaking of the Honda Fit, those ads about cargo space aren’t kidding. I just got back from a car camping trip in which I carried food, beer and supplies for eighteen on the way out and leftovers, tents, mattresses, folding gazebos and folding chairs on the return. The gnomes at Honda make the back seats fold down in a way that creates an amazingly roomy space for about as much crap as the little engine can credibly pull without stalling out on steep hills. I’m not saying that the car rivals a minivan with removable seats, but compared to the impression that you get looking at the outside (kind of a feline Geo Metro) the car’s interior is almost TARDIS-like. I feel safe predicting that when gas costs a couple more bucks per gallon, everybody who still owns a car will want one of these.
