Design

2015 Honda Fit EX:
1. Muscular Renault R5 Turbo style rear quarters
2. Civic-like front fascia and grille look
3. Sly tapered headlights, trimmed in LEDs
4. Top-tier EX trim tester fitted with optional 17″ diamond cut style alloy wheels. The 1976 Honda Civic boasted increasing wheel diameter from 12″-inches to 13″-inches.
1.5L twin-cam direct injected gas I-4 engine makes a solid horsepower jump; Powertrain sounds thrash only above 3500 rpm; Continuously Variable Transmission locks fast in Sport Mode, without engine getting hung up; Manumatic steering wheel shift paddles endowed with 7 simulated “gear ratios”; sub-9 second 0-60 miles-per-hour is the Hare here ; even a “lead foot” can achieve 31 combined mpg.

2015 Nissan Versa Note SR:
1. More Nissan and less old Renault Clio to the eye
2. Far less sterile than the price-leading Versa sedan
3. Lower fascia could mirror that from a Nissan Quest maxi-van
4. Trademark boomerang light housings Similar raked windshield and tapered roof ending in a spoiler as on the Fit.
5. Lower rear valance trimmed in faux, but sporty carbon fiber.
6. Bright LEDs bring up the tail.
1.6L twin-cam gas I-4 lacks direct injection, hence the 20% power deficiency to the Fit; Powertrain makes racket above 2200 rpm; Despite a bigger ratio spread, CVT is using U.S Mail Parcel Post to lock ratios; No manumatic shift mode; Near 10 second 0-60 time has all the hustle of a Turtle dragging a lead bar; Obtaining 32 combined mpg demands a “cotton ball foot.”
