The 'Fit' Gets Fat?

The Honda Fit that is:
While we’re fans of the sporting practicality that Honda’s five-passenger Fit has been offering to Americans for the last few years, we’re not sure that we’d be quite so happy with the package if we had to share it with three additional friends.

That’s what Honda seems to be proposing, if French web site Le Blog Auto can be believed, with these scans of a new Fit variant called the Freed, stretched to accommodate as many as eight passengers. The Freed will apparently be powered by a 1.5-liter four making 118 horsepower and hooked up to a CVT transmission.
Never heard of the Honda Fit before? US News chose it as the #1 car in their affordable cars category. Here is the Fit's official website and a look at the 2009 model.
