I agree with that statement. Mine says "Sport" on the back and has plenty of utility. Does this mean my registration cost will go up?

Yikes! That did not hold up very well. Doesn't look like a GK btw.

In my opinion, the Fit being a sub-compact, removes it from the category of "Sports Utility Vehicle".

It's a Sporty, very utilizable hatchback. But IMO not a by definition Sports Utility Vehicle.
I think you need a starting point baseline of HRV, CRV, or Toyota Rav4 type size.

Subcompacts are subcompacts.

It's a vehicle.

So, it's a SUV

Honda forbids you from calling it an SUV because if the public was to believe that then more people might start buying the Fit instead of Honda's big SUVs which sell for a big bloated price providing Honda with most of its profits.

Well, the "reporter" is as stupid as the two thieves. Some stretch and pull it into to make the letters make it an SUV. There's enough auto confusion .. sports car, pony car, muscle car I've seen Mustangs described as, well choose one./c'asspc

Size Matters.
And the Fit is a subcompact,

Hey, I love the Fit, I've bought two of them. BUT....
It's NOT an SUV.

A Nissan Juke is within a few inches in dimensions as a GK and it's considered a crossover suv. Crossovers are just hatchbacks with a little more ground clearance so it wouldn't be surprising if the dumb media gets the details wrong.

A Fit is sportier & more utilitarian than 99% of SUV on the road so it works.
