Quickest source I could find was wikipedia.
Although the second generation Honda Fit was introduced in the Japanese market in 2007, the first generation Fit was still sold in the North American market for the 2008 model year. The second generation Fit for the North American market was unveiled on 19 March 2008, at the 2008 New York International Auto Show for the 2009 model year.
Oh, and the 1st generation engine is coded L15A1. It's a 2-stage i-VTEC with max 109 hp. The 2nd generation's L15A7 engine gets a 3-stage i-VTEC that boosts top power to 117 hp. (yay?)

I confirmed your gear ratio chart, though. They DID change the final drive for the 2012 mid-cycle refresh. (4.62 to 4.625)

11-mile commute: 100 mpg - - - Tank: 90.2 mpg / 1191 miles
