Drivers in Frankfort and Orland Park can appreciate the easy-to-drive handling and smart efficiency offered by hatchbacks like the 2017 Honda Fit or the 2017 Toyota Yaris. While either of these affordable small cars could be a great option for commuters, they’re far from equal. Just see for yourself below.

Powertrain and Performance

When it comes to power and efficiency, the Toyota Yaris will not keep up with the Honda Fit. Consider how they match up when it comes to both performance and fuel economy estimates:

  • Power: While neither is a sports car, you’ll have an easier time getting up to speed with the 130 hp 1.5L four-cylinder in the Honda Fit. The Yaris also has a 1.5L four-cylinder, but it only makes 106 hp.
  • Efficiency: With a standard four-speed automatic, the Toyota Yaris is rated at up to 30 mpg city/36 mpg highway based on EPA estimates*. The Honda Fit LX with continuously variable transmission rates at up to 33 mpg city/40 mpg highway based on EPA estimates*.

It’s not hard to see that the Fit will save you money at the pump and offer more fun behind the wheel.

Utility and Space

These two little cars offer easy to park dimensions, but the Honda Fit offers more space inside for both you and your passengers.

  • Cabin Space: The Honda Fit simply offers a larger cabin than the Toyota Yaris, whichever version of the Yaris you choose. The Fit gives you more front and rear leg room and shoulder room, more front head room without moonroof, and more front hip room.
  • Cargo Space: The Honda Fit will fit up to 16.6 cubic feet of luggage with all seats in place, and up to 52.7 cubic feet with rear seats folded down. The Toyota Yaris can fit up to 15.6 cubic feet of luggage with all seats in place, and Toyota hasn’t released figures on how much luggage it will carry with the seats folded down.
