humm... yah, i suppose the 17's (current gen impreza) is better on mpg vs the 16 impreza, but still not at the level of the GK's. but that is a KILLER price imho.. ive driven the impreza and it is leagues better and more compliant/comfy ride than the GK. GK to me is a bouncy little mess when i get into it each time.. great for short surface-road errands but would not want to drive that for long distances everyday.. but then im not so young either so..

We're in our 60s and take our Fit on a 5k trip every summer (4 years). It's really terrific to drive for long distances.

Exactly. It's a lot more money too. It's also slow with only 152 horsepower and is only a 5-speed manual. I also don't find the interior quality any better than the Fit. It weighs more than my Si with 53 less horsepower. I'm in Canada and see a lot of winter but AWD is overrated and not worth paying extra for. For a few years there I used to drive a Miata in the winter. It was a blast.

We've taken the Fit on long distances and you're right, it's fine. I just prefer the additional horsepower the Si has for longer highway drives.
