You can fit a WPC in a Honda Fit.

I did'nt know about a Honda Fit, but I know that a 2008 Hyundai Accent (hatchback) can easily take a WPC.

I think that car looks familiar? I think it might have carried my No Fear a few years ago.

It is surprising. A pin barely fits in my Ford Explorer due to the opening size. Lots of room inside but the openings on some of the newer SUVs is unbelievably small. Mine has less than an inch to spare.

After measuring the opening of the hatchback and the thickness of the pin/folded head I'm the one that recommended ass end first.

Yes if memory serves me correctly it has to go in to fit with the hatch down. That is the way my No Fear was loaded as well when I sold it. Although it appears not to be the same Honda Fit.
