2019 Honda Fit vs 2019 Kia Rio Hatchback

2019 Honda Fit vs 2019 Kia Rio Hatchback

Just last year the Honda Fit received a facelift that introduced a sportier version of the subcompact hatchback sedan. With the entire Kia lineup turning to a sportier design ethos in pursuit of the same magic their new Stinger sports car created, we thought we’d see how our sophomore sporty subcompact hatchback measures up to their entry into the segment by pitting the 2019 Honda Fit vs 2019 Kia Rio Hatchback.

2019 Honda Fit Vs 2019 Kia Rio Hatchback
130 HP Horsepower 130 HP
2,522 lbs. Curb Weight 2,714 lbs.
8.1 l/100km Highway Fuel Efficiency 8.4 l/100km
5 Seating Capacity 5

Advantages of the 2019 Fit

As you can see, the two hatchback sedans are quite comparable to one another. In the first row of the table we take a look at horsepower, an area in which both the Honda Fit and Kia Rio Hatchback deliver the same specification: 130 HP. That’s plenty of power to deliver an enjoyable experience on the road, but it shows no advantage one way or the other. However, the spec in the second row does tint things in the Honda’s favor, as having a lower curb weight means less power is necessary. So, the fact that the Fit weighs nearly 200 pounds less means those 130 horses will go a bit further.

The third row offers another advantage in the Honda Fit’s favor, this time in terms of fuel efficiency. It isn’t often that a vehicle has the power advantage and the fuel efficiency advantage, but perhaps it has something to do with the power advantage coming from having a lower curb weight. Either way, the Fit utilizes 0.3 litres less fuel to travel the same 100 kilometres on the highway as the Rio Hatchback.

The fourth and final row shows that both vehicles offer the same amount of seats, giving you room for up to four passengers plus yourself. If you think you might be interested in a new 2019 Honda Fit, be sure to get in touch with us right here at Wheaton Honda.
