Comparison: 2018 Honda Fit vs. 2018 Toyota Yaris

There’s a lot to love about a small, compact vehicle, especially if parking in the city is a concern of yours or if you have a new driver in your family. Both Honda and Toyota are known for making great vehicles. Here we’ll compare the Honda Fit to the Toyota Yaris.

Comfort and Convenience

Honda Fit

Drivers and passengers alike will be more comfortable in the 2018 Honda Fit than with some if it’s competitors. The rear seats fold all the way down, as do the front seats, allowing you to really pack it to the gills. You’re getting 16.6 cubic feet of cargo space, and if you’re packing up the car for a long trip, you know that you need every bit of space that you can get!

The 2018 Honda Fit gets an EPA estimated 40 mpg highway*, which means that you’ll be able to go further in-between stops to fuel up. Being small and low to the ground, the Fit can zip around in traffic and is a breeze to park.

Toyota Yaris

There are two versions of the Yaris: the Yaris iA, which is a sedan, and then there is also a hatchback version. Generally, we are used to seeing hatchback models offer more versatility for drivers, but in the case of the Yaris, the iA is a much more impressive vehicle (although still leaves a lot to be desired). While the Fit offers 16.6 cubic feet of cargo, the 2018 Toyota Yaris only offers 15.3 cubic feet. This also means that the interior isn’t as roomy as the Fit and can really only fit two adults and be comfortable at all.

As far as fuel economy goes, the Yaris is pretty impressive. Sedans equipped with an automatic transmission are rated by the EPA at 32 mpg city, 40 highway, 35 combined. The hatchback models are rated at 30 mpg city, 35 highway, 32 combined.

Trims and Features

Honda Fit

There are our different trim levels to choose from with the 2018 Honda Fit: LX, Sport, EX, and EX-L. Every Fit comes with keyless entry, a rearview camera, cruise control, Bluetooth, and a 5-inch touchscreen. The base price of the 2018 Honda fit is a bit more than its competitors, but once you start adding features to the Yaris it quickly gets more expensive than the Fit.

Honda also offers impressive advanced safety and driver assistance technology, including Honda Sensing, which is a suite of safety technology features that comes standard on any trim that comes with a CVT transmission.

Toyota Yaris

In contrast, the 2018 Yaris iA is only offered in one trim. It does come with your standard equipment as well as Toyota’s 25,000-mile prepaid maintenance program.

The hatchback model has a few more trim levels: the L, LE, and SE. Unfortunately, there’s nothing really too exciting about any of these models. The best features that the SE trim offer are 16-inch wheels, a rear spoiler, and a better, more attractive instrument cluster.

As you can see, even for an economy vehicle, the 2018 Honda Fit gives you a big bang for your buck. A slew of top-of-the-line safety features that come standard, flexibility to choose the trim level that’s right for you, and impressive fuel economy make the Honda Fit worth looking at!
