Default Honda Civic vs. Honda Fit?

This summer I'm going to buy a new car. My criteria are: good gas mileage, reliable, and because I'm a poor college student, affordable.Initially, I was going to replace my Ford Focus with a new one. After doing some research, I found that overall it seemed that the Honda Civic was a better car. After looking at Civics, I stumbled across the Honda Fit. I like the fact that the Honda Civic has more space. Although it has less gas mileage highway (33, to the Civic's 36), it has more mpg city (27, to the Civic's 25). I don't like the small gas tank on the Fit, but I think I could get over it. My question is, which do you think is better and why?Also, if anyone has any input on a car other than these two that fit my criteria listed above, by all means give me your suggestions!

The Civic should fit your needs however, if you carry stuff or people around often, the Fit would be the good choice. The Fit is actually a good idea just in case you need that little bit of room for a trip or something.

I sat in both a civic and fit in the showroom and the Fit seemed alot roomier, even though it appears small on the outside.Trunk space is good too.The fit also fits all your other requirements aswell.

I was looking at both the Fit and the Civic. I was able to rent a Civic for a long trip. After the trip, I chose the Fit...Reasons:I like the Hatchback and lay flat seats...The Parking Brake Handle on Civic was in STUPID place. It dug into my leg...

Default Re: Honda Civic vs. Honda Fit?

Well, first of all, a poor college student should not be buying a new car! Settle for a used Civic. The best ones are the HX, VX, or CX - easily 42 + mpg old cars.

I have a 99 HX Manual Transmission and nonhypermiled I get 44 mpg. I'm hypermiling my current tank and am at 53.6 mpg.

If you get a new car, wait for the 2009 Fit. Bigger and more mpg too.
