2016 Honda Fit vs 2016 Toyota Yaris near Arlington, VA

And the Winner is... the 2016 Honda Fit!

Finding the right vehicle for you is no easy task, and it’s safe to say you could spend all weekend researching available hatchbacks. Or, you can save yourself some time and check out our 2016 Honda Fit vs 2016 Toyota Yaris near Arlington, VA, comparison, here at Honda of Chantilly, to see which of the two options comes out on top.

It all starts under the hood, as both the 2016 Honda Fit and the 2016 Yaris are powered by 1.5L 4-cylinder engines, but the similarities stop there. In the Fit, you’ll cruise down I-66 with 130 horsepower and 114 lb.-ft. of torque. In the Yaris, you’ll only be moved by 106 horsepower and 103 lb.-ft. of torque. Even despite its more powerful performance, the Fit is more efficient with an EPA-estimated 32/38/35 MPG city/hwy/combined1. However, the Yaris will make you stop at the fuel pump more with a fuel rating of 30/36 MPG city/hwy2.

Our comparison of the 2016 Honda Fit vs the 2016 Toyota Yaris near Arlington, VA, looks at more than just what’s under the hood. In terms of cargo space, the Fit simply gives you more way to configure the backseat, with Utility, Long, Tall, and Refresh mode for all types of cargo3. However, you’re limited with the Yaris’ 60/40 split-folding rear seat. Even if you leave the seats in place, the Fit beats the Yaris with 16.6 cubic ft. of cargo space3, while the Yaris only has 15.6 cubic ft. of storage room4. The Fit also has more space for your passengers to stretch out with 95.7 cubic ft. of passenger volume. You’ll only find 85.1 cubic ft. of passenger volume in the Yaris.

Let’s talk features, as both the 2016 Fit and the 2016 Yaris have a lot to offer. However, the Fit makes rides more comfortable with standard cruise control, a tilt/telescoping steering wheel, and available leather seats. To compare, the Yaris only has cruise control on higher trims, only comes standard with a tilting steering wheel, and doesn’t offer leather seats on any trim level. And while the Yaris comes standard with a 6.1-inch touchscreen, you’re limited to that size. Althugh the Fit only comes standard with a 5-inch screen, higher trims kick this up a notch to a 7-inch display.

There is also a long list of features the Fit has available that you won’t find in the Yaris no matter how high of a trim level you drive. For instance, the Fit comes standard with a rearview camera5, so reversing out of tight parking spaces is easy. You won’t find a backup camera6 at all in the Yaris. Enjoy tons of music choices in the Fit EX and EX-L, as they boast SiriusXM® Satellite Radio7 and Pandora®8, which you won’t find in the Yaris. Better yet, you can get on the road faster in the Fit with available push button start, and feel the breeze off the Potomac River when you open the available moonroof. As you may have guessed, both options aren’t available in the Yaris.

We hope that this 2016 Honda Fit vs 2016 Toyota Yaris near Arlington, VA, comparison has made it clear which hatchback you should make your own. Check out all the exciting features, cargo space, and efficiency in the Fit with a test drive here at Honda of Chantilly today!
