I say the Fit. I don't have a Honda bias or anything, I just think the Yaris commercials are annoying:laughing: . I have never driven either, so I can't really give an informed opinion.

I heard the new fit might have 4WD supposedly. I like the fit but 108HP seems underpowered and drum brakes only?! WTF? how much are you willing to spend?

the yaris is a cool car. i saw a video where tsuchiya drove the vitz supercharged. imagine haha. i love fits though, economic cars with much aftermarket bling avail. i think the fits designing is perfect.

Are you tired of the benz already?! LOL the thing that threw me off from getting the fit is its FWD only and rear drum brakes there are no disk brakes for the rear at all!. The Toyota Yaris is crap dont get it,as are the scions. I really like the Nissan Versa it has 110 HP and intelligent key plus disk brakes all around go check it out.

If you are looking for an inexpensive, non-performance car there is nothing wrong with drum brakes. It is a way for manufacturers to keep costs low and they work fine.

i acutally really like the fit, was gonna get it over civic till my dad gave the green light on the si.

im just confused why it doesnt actually get better mileage than the civic, its lighter and has less hp

I dig the Yaris, and like Cybergypsy said, there's something about the front. I would seriously twist the washer things to the right and pretend I'm in that commercial all day. They're not fast, but they're pretty peppy, like the Fit.
