Maybe, that would be cool if it did. How could I tell if it would fit without trying it?

Any other cars that would be a good fit for me if I can not find a rear for a FIT. Is the CR-V a crazy idea, some other car I have not thought of that has both AWD and FWD options?

The rear differential assembly is not the same as the CR-V or the Civic. All I know is it will be expensive anyway.

Hey OP you might look into a Toyota Yaris sedan, if that fits the bill. Might not be capable of the towing level you want, but it's possible to get a manual transmission. Has electric mirrors, windows, and power steering.

That said, it was difficult for me to track down an '09 Yaris sedan with manual back in 2012, so it might be really difficult to find one now. The reason I can recommend it the most is that I did literally nothing but oil changes, and replaced the serpentine belt once. Drove it from 28,500 miles to ~100,000 miles and had absolutely 0 mechanical issues. And due to hypermiling I was still on the factory brake pads.

Looks like the real difference is the JDM fit awd has a saddle in the middle of the twist beam for the rear diff.

Otherwise it looks like the driveshafts just barely clear the springs.
