Unless Honda would attempt to certify a new WR-V in the U.S. too. Then maybe offering the Fit with the WR-V nameplate as if it was only an aerodinamically-enhanced front clip. Even though certifying the Fit through the "light truck" loophole that has benefitted the SUVs for a long time might seem to go against its purpose, I'm sure Honda won't decrease the efficiency to exploit this loophole.

Iím sure Honda will convert most potential Fit customers to a HR-V or Civic.
Probably most potential Fit customers might be pushed to the HR-V than to the Civic, even though nowadays that Honda resumed offering the Civic with a hatchback bodystyle it might become easier to attract the Fit owners. Well, maybe with a smaller engine...
