I thought the Fit was about the best value out there, with the best interior storage design, until I test drove one. Now I think it's still the best value out there, if you don't mind a lot of noise and are somewhat shorter than 6' 2". I just could not fit in it. I had sore legs after sitting in it, twice, for 15 to 30 minutes, which I can't say has ever happened in lots of other cars.
The TDI wagon was wonderful when I test drove it, the engine, interior, lack of noise, and so on. It has a much longer load floor, and about 12 more cubic feet of storage. But it's at least $5K more than a Fit, if you can find one.
