2016 Toyota Yaris vs 2016 Honda Fit
The Toyota Yaris might not be the most popular or well-known vehicle on the lineup, but it makes for an excellent subcompact hatchback or sedan. With several different options and configurations for the model available, including 3-door and 5-door hatchbacks, the possibilities are wide open for what kind of Yaris you can get. And considering it isn’t quite as popular as other models out there, we wanted to see how it measured up to one of its biggest competitors by comparing the 2016 Toyota Yaris vs 2016 Honda Fit..
Advantages of the 2016 Toyota Yaris
Looking at the table above, it is plain to see that the two vehicles are pretty comparable to one another. The Yaris doesn’t have any huge advantages over the Honda Fit, though starting from the top of the table it does have a slight nod in highway fuel efficiency. 0.1 l/100km would barely be noticeable, but it’s something. And tethered to the slight advantage in fuel tank capacity – 2 litres – it does make a slight difference.
As for power, it’s plain to see the Honda Fit unfortunately has a pretty clear advantage. But looking at the third row you can see that the Yaris weighs 267 lbs. less the Honda Fit. That might not completely eliminate the Fit’s advantage in power, but it definitely stifles it by quite a bit.
Other than the specifications listed above, the Yaris is packed with great features and safety technology to make it an excellent choice of subcompact hatchback. In this battle, it might come down to whether you’d prefer a slight advantage in power or a slight advantage in fuel efficiency, and if your answer is the latter then the 2016 Toyota Yaris is perfect for you.
