2015 Honda Fit vs 2015 Volkswagen Golf
For the 2015 model year the Honda Fit was completely repackaged in a generational overhaul, coming out the other side better than ever. While the vehicle was first introduced in 2001, and entered its second generation in 2007, the vehicle only continues to improve like it did when entering its third generation in 2015. We won’t detail every single upgrade the vehicle received, but the improvements do continue to help it be one of the best in the segment. Speaking of which, we thought it might be a good idea to compare subcompact against one of its competitors, so we took a closer look at the 2015 Honda Fit vs 2015 Volkswagen Golf.
Advantages of the 2015 Honda Fit
Taking a look at the table above you can tell that the Honda Fit has quite a few advantages, but the Volkswagen Golf has its bright spots as well. For instance, the Volkswagen model does have a pretty hefty lead in horsepower with 40 hp more than the Honda Fit. What the table leaves out, however, is that the Honda has a curb weight roughly 450 lbs. lighter than the Volkswagen, definitely closing that 40-horsepower gap quite a bit if not completely.
The Honda Fit does indeed trump the Volkswagen Golf in many other categories as well, including both city and highway fuel efficiency. Driving through the city streets of Edmonton would save you quite a bit of gas in the Fit, as you’d utilize 2.3 l/100km less. Jump on the highway and you’re still saving by using nearly 1 l/100km less. But the Fit’s major advantage is in terms of cargo capacity, its claim to fame. The 2015 Honda Fit has more than double the space that the cargo area of the Volkswagen Golf has, therefore making it the better choice in our opinion.
