I expect this will change as soon as the car hits our shores though. Particularly with Quebec's mandatory winter tire law, and the expected popularity of the Mirage in la Belle Province.[/QUOTE]
Agreed. I also believe that this car, if successful, will inspire other car makers to bring their "global small cars" to Canada. It seems to me that Canadian driving is assumed to be exactly the same as in the USA, but given our lower speed limits/slower driving, less horsepower is required to go with the flow. Nissan has a new Versa that looks just like the Honda Fit, to my eye.
