The 2nd generation Honda Fit went on sale in Japan this week; it comes to the US as a 2009 model.
And though LA Times car critic, new father of twins and--let's face it: size queen--Dan Neil says the new Chrysler Town & Country is "the sexiest vehicle a man could ever drive," I would just point your attention to the four major design goals for the Fit's Ultra-Seat functionality:
The four modes of "Ultra Seat" provide enhanced utility.Stretching out "for a rest" is one of the Fit's freakin' modes, people! Chrysler, ball's in your court.
Utility mode: Easy one-motion dive down and release operation of the rear seats. The luggage space can be extended to a maximum length of 1,720 mm*12 thanks to the spacious full-flat floor.
Long mode: In Utility mode, place the passenger seat in the full reclining position to create a space up to 2,400 mm long to carry long objects.
Tall mode: Fold up the rear seat cushions to take advantage of Fit's 1,280 mm roof height--the perfect way to make space for tall items like house plants.
Refresh mode: Remove the front seat headrests and put the front seats in full reclining position to stretch out across the front and rear seats for a rest.
