One word: Insight.

Same platform as the Fit, but the taper starts earlier and continues farther back and farther down.

Looks a lot like that Citroen, actually.

I took a closer look at the Fit here at work. The middle does taper down, but the two sides have a little flare up. I wonder what purpose that serves...

My friend and I were looking at the spoiler on my Fit yesterday. It's purely ascetic and has no function. I figure if I continued the shape for another 1 1/2 feet I wouldn't loose rear visibility and make a big difference in the low pressure back there. I plan to build one once it gets a bit warmer and I figure out how to take the spoiler off without breaking anything. Also, if you look at mid 2000 Mitsubishi Evo, they have vortex eliminators on the upper part of the rear window. this made the air flow cleaner, I wonder how hard it would be to put that into play with a Partial Kammback for the fit.
