Deciding to buy a new Honda is easy to do as its current lineup is filled with impressive vehicles. If you are in the market for a smaller vehicle that delivers excellent performance, you may be trying to decide between the 2019 Honda Fit and the 2018 Honda Civic Hatchback. You may quickly learn that the new Fit is included in the line’s third generation, and it is classified as a supermini. The Civic Hatchback is classified as a compact car and has been a mainstay in the Honda line since 1972. Similar in many ways, these two vehicles also differ in essential areas that you should learn about before making a new car purchase.

Style

As you compare the 2019 Fit against the 2018 Civic Hatchback, you will notice that the Fit’s exterior dimensions are much smaller. The Fit is offered with two or four doors, and it has a relatively horizontal roofline to ensure comfortable passenger seating in the front and rear rows. The Civic Hatchback, on the other hand, has a sharply-angled roofline that adds style to the exterior. The sportier Civic Hatchback is only available in a two-door coupe-like design. When you stop by the dealership to compare the exterior design for both of these vehicles, you will notice that they share many exterior colors and are both available in several trims.

Performance

The 2019 Honda Fit is priced several thousand dollars lower than the 2018 Civic Hatchback, and one reason for this financial savings may be found in the powertrain. The Fit is loaded with a 130-horsepower, inline 4-cylinder engine. The Civic Hatchback for 2018, on the other hand, has a similar engine that delivers 158 horsepower. Higher-level trims have more powerful powertrains for both of these Honda models. Your comparison of the Civic Hatchback versus the Fit will reveal that many mechanical features are shared. For example, they both come with hill start assist, a drive-by-wire throttle system, an automatic transmission, an electric parking brake, Eco Assist, anti-locking brakes and several other features.

Interior Features

Selecting a new smaller car that is well-appointed is essential for your comfort and convenience behind the wheel. The good news is that the 2019 Fit and the 2019 Civic Hatchback have similar interior features, but the features vary based on the trim that you decide to take home. Some of the features that you may benefit from in both models include power door locks, power windows with an auto-down function, a radio data system, at least a 5-inch color touchscreen, Bluetooth technology, active and passive safety features and more.


The 2019 Honda Fit and the 2018 Honda Civic Hatchback both offer drivers an exceptional on-the-road experience, but they differ in their style, size and performance capabilities.
