2016 Toyota Yaris vs 2016 Honda Fit
We love comparing two of our similar models against one another to showcase the similarities and difference between them, but especially if they’re both new. The Toyota Yaris was completely overhauled for the 2016 model year, while the Honda Fit entered a new generation last year for the 2015 model year. We thought we’d take a closer look at the two subcompact hatchback sedans, by comparing the 2016 Toyota Yaris vs 2016 Honda Fit to see exactly how similar they are and what their strengths might be.
Differences Between the 2016 Toyota Yaris, Honda Fit
Let’s go about this by simply taking a look at each specification detailed in the table above, starting with city fuel economy. When driving through city streets like those found around Edmonton, both subcompact hatchbacks utilize 7.1 litres every 100 kilometres. Expanding the similarity the two vehicles have in terms of fuel economy even further, the 2016 Toyota Yaris only utilizes 0.1 l/100km less than the 2016 Honda Fit, which amounts to essentially nothing.
Moving on past fuel economy, the next specification we compared between the two hatchbacks was horsepower. Horsepower isn’t nearly as important in these little sedans as it might be in a truck or performance sports car, but having an extra 24 horsepower is certainly a welcomed advantage for the 2016 Honda Fit. However, the 2016 Toyota Yaris makes up for this by weight a little over 100 lbs. less. The lighter a car is, the less horsepower it needs to do the same work. So each vehicle has an advantage here as well.
