There are lots of reasons for driver here in Elgin or Crystal Lake, IL to pick a subcompact hatchback like the 2016 Honda Fit or the 2016 Toyota Yaris. Both of these vehicles offer impressive efficiency and lots of versatile space. They’re both up-to-date with the latest high-tech safety and connectivity features. So which one will be better for you? Read on to find out!

Powertrain and Performance

You’re not looking for a gas guzzling sports car if you’re comparing these cars. Efficiency is a priority – but a few extra horsepower wouldn’t hurt. It’s easy to see there’s one clear winner when it comes to fuel economy and performance: the 2016 Honda Fit.

In terms of power, the Honda Fit gets a 1.5L four-cylinder engine that produces 130 hp and 114 lb-ft of torque while the 2016 Toyota Yaris gets a 1.5L four-cylinder that only makes 106 hp and 103 lb-ft of torque.

In terms of efficiency, The Honda Fit LX with continuously variable transmission earns an EPA estimate of 33 mpg city/41 mpg highway/36 mpg combined*, while the automatic equipped Toyota Yaris is only capable of up to 30 mpg city/36 mpg highway/32 mpg combined.

Utility and Space

Subcompact cars today don’t have to be cramped and they don’t have to force you to leave luggage at home. These two models both give you smartly designed space, but once again the 2016 Honda Fit just makes better use of its footprint with smart design to maximize cargo volume.

The Fit gives you 16.6 cubic feet of cargo space with all seats in place while the 2016 Toyota Yaris only makes way for 15.6 cubic feet in the four-door model.

The Fit has a total capacity of 52.7 cubic feet while the Yaris doesn’t even list a figure. Since the Fit has the Honda exclusive Magic Seat that folds into the floor, and of course the Yaris doesn’t, you can expect the Yaris to put up a figure much lower than the Fit.
