I have an 08 Scioin XB and a 09 FIt. I like both but use them very differently. The Fit is around town and short out of town day trips as it is great on gas. For my long trips I use the XB. The XB has a better ride to me, a lot more room and still fairly good on gas. I really like how the XB lets me sit up higher. I also feel safer in the XB since is came with traction control and the Fit didn't. So when the weather is bad and the roads really wet I"ll be in my XB if at all possible. Overall I really like them both and feel fortunate to get to pick which one I'l drive on any given day.

It's funny that while the XB is quite a bit larger on the outside, the behind the second row cargo space is equal at about 21 CuFt; however, you do get 5" more legroom in XB and more cargo space when you fold down the 2nd row. So if you're carrying 4 average size people (or 2 adults and 2 kids like in our case), then the Fit seems like a winner based on the fact that you're getting the same cargo space behind the 2nd row, yet are getting a lot better MPG (50% better MPG with the Fit), but it really depends on your needs/uses.

Your right about the space behind the second row. What I like and need is the space in the XB when the seats are down. I have hauled home full size chester drawers in the XB that would never have made it in the Fit. When the seats are folded down in the Fit I can get my dog crate in and a few more things but not enough for a long trip with the dog, two coolers and suite cases. They are both great cars as far as I'm concerned.
