2017 Toyota Yaris Hatchback vs 2017 Honda Fit
The subcompact Toyota Yaris was originally introduced back in 1999, and it’s been a steady little car for the brand ever since. It might not have the notoriety of a Camry or Corolla, but with both a hatchback and sedan version of the Yaris it has become quite popular, especially here in Canada – where it was just overhauled for the 2016 model year. We thought we’d take a look at it in comparison to another subcompact vehicle that has been dependable for its brand, by pitting the 2016 Toyota Yaris vs 2016 Hyundai Accent.While it has remained the same in other markets like the United States, thanks to a partnership between Mazda and Toyota de México the 2016 Yaris was remodeled and is now built on the same platform as the Mazda2.
Advantages of the 2017 Toyota Yaris Hatchback
The table above showcases four different specifications for each vehicle that will make it easier to get a grasp of how the two hatchbacks differ. The first row looks at combined fuel efficiency, and considering both Toyota and Honda are known as extremely fuel efficient brands we’re not surprised that they’re nearly identical. Even still, the Yaris Hatchback does utilizes 0.1 l/100km less fuel, which technically gives it an advantage, but you’d have to use a lot of fuel to notice the savings.
The second and third rows look at a horsepower and curb weight respectively. Unfortunately, the Honda Fit does offer 24 horsepower more than the Yaris Hatchback. But those 24 horses are diminished by the fact that the Yaris Hatchback weights nearly 200 lbs. less than the Fit, as the lighter a vehicle is the less power it needs to move the same way.
The final row depicts fuel capacity, which might not seem like a big deal but does offer another nice perk. Because the Yaris Hatchback offers an extra half gallon of fuel you won’t have to fill up as often. This is especially nice in long road trips, where you won’t have to make as many stops.
