Given how much the Civic has grown, Honda doesn't have a small sedan, but I think a Fit sedan would be great for incremental sales. Do it as a mid-level model and keep it near 17K and it would be OK.
The Civic is essentially a $20K+ vehicle for all intents and purposes.
I've forgotten the name of the "crossover" that was created by putting a body kit on a Fit, but such a vehicle could easily augment the Fit for sales.
It would NOT surprise me to see the next US Fiesta come with the "crossover" body kit as an option because that would likely make it sell more.
