The automotive market has become so expansive, that finding the perfect option can be a nightmare. Even if you whittle it down to a specific segment, there are generally still a wide array of options from which to choose. That’s why we create comparisons like this one, to give you a better idea of how our favorite Honda vehicles measure up against their segment competitors. So we thought we’d help all of you shoppers in the market for a subcompact hatchback, by comparing the 2017 Honda Fit vs 2017 Ford Fiesta.
Advantages of the 2017 Honda Fit
The table above takes a look at four different aspects of the two small hatchbacks, and these are four of the most important aspects to consider when shopping for vehicles like these – or any vehicle really. To give you a better idea of why we think the Honda Fit makes a better option than the Ford Fiesta, we thought we’d work our way right through the table row by row. So the first thing we look at was combined fuel efficiency, in which the Honda Fit already kicks things off with a pretty big lead. Utilizing 1.2 litres less fuel to travel the same 100 kilometres as the Fiesta, the Fit will save you quite a bit of money at the gas pump over time.
Sometimes, superior fuel efficiency can translate to a disadvantage in terms of power, but the Honda Fit also offers an extra 10 horsepower more than the Ford Fiesta. 10 HP isn’t a mind-blowing advantage by any means, but it can translate to a more enjoyable driving experience for all of those drivers with lead feet. But in addition to fuel economy and power, the Honda Fit trumps the Fiesta in terms of space as well, as the last two rows depict.
Behind the back seat, the Honda Fit offers an extra 1.7 cubic feet of space to fill with luggage, groceries or whatever it is you need to bring on the road with you. And in the cabin, it offers a whopping 12.3 extra cu. ft. of space for you and your passengers to stretch out and get comfortable in. If these advantages make you think the 2017 Honda Fit is the right subcompact hatchback for you, then be sure to schedule a test drive right here at Wheaton Honda.
