Lots of automakers have tried to make some kind of an SUV that gives you truly good performance and handling. Until now, only the Subaru Outback came close for me, but Mazda’s smallest crossover, the CX-5, may take the crown.
When the folks at Honda dropped off a shiny, yellow Fit at the office, it was snowing. I found myself wondering, how will this little front-wheel-drive economy sedan fare in that daily Iditarod that is my winter commute.
A lot of folks may forget that Honda was the first of the Japanese makes to create a luxury division, like Cadillac or Lincoln. And like the two domestics, they took their bread and butter sedans, fitted them for a tux, jacked up the price and voila! You have instant luxury.
