2016 Honda Fit vs 2016 Mazda 3
The Honda Fit was one of the most exciting small cars of the last model year, as it was completely redesigned for 2015. While nothing much has changed for the 2016 model year, the new model is just as exciting as it was last year and we cannot wait to help you get behind the wheel. In an effort to show you just how much better it is than the competition, we decided to see how it measures up to one of its biggest competitors, by comparing the 2016 Honda Fit vs 2016 Mazda 3.
Advantages of the 2016 Honda Fit
Glancing up to the table above you can tell right off the bat how superior the 2016 Honda Fit is to the compact 2016 Mazda 3. Glance down at the third specification, 52.7 cubic feet of max cargo capacity, actually 5.5 cu. ft. more than the Mazda 3. While that is impressive in and of itself, what makes it even more impressive is the fact that the Honda Fit is a subcompact while the Mazda 3 belongs to the segment a step above, in other words the Fit is physically smaller yet offers more space.
Let’s backpedal a moment and look to the fuel efficiency ratings. At this day and age in the industry, fuel efficiency has become perhaps the most important specification of all, so while its advantages might not be that significant, the 0.8 l/100km city and 0.2 l/100km highway certainly add to the appeal of the 2016 Honda Fit. Lastly, let’s glance at the vehicle’s power. I know what you’re thinking, horsepower isn’t listed above. No, but curb weight is. While we didn’t have space to showcase the fact that the Fit has 25 less horsepower than its competitor, we did want to show that it weighs just under 500 lbs. less than the Mazda, thus decreasing that lead significantly.
