2019 Honda Fit vs. 2019 Toyota Yaris
Honda and Toyota both have strong histories producing efficient hatchbacks. However, for the new model year, Honda is showing its traditional rival that it has some new tricks up its sleeve. A comparison of the 2019 Honda Fit vs. 2019 Toyota Yaris will clearly illustrate why Meridian Honda customers should take a long look at the new Fit when it arrives at the showroom. For the new model year, the 2019 Fit is available in four well-equipped trims LX, Sport, EX and EX-L. Each of these trims comes with a powertrain that makes more power than the 2019 Toyota Yaris while still offering fuel economy scores* that are more than competitive – considering the performance disparity.

Hatchbacks were initially developed to provide owners with an economical and efficient mode of transportation. The 2019 Honda Fit certainly meets those criteria, but also has been updated to meet the needs of a more connected world. Customers interested in the versions of the 2019 Fit above the entry-level LX trim will be able to connect compatible smartphones to the hatchback’s infotainment system through the Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ suites. Toyota has started to introduce this capability to its lineup, just not for the 2019 Yaris. Even when considering more traditional metrics like available cargo space, the 2019 Fit has more to offer than the 2019 Yaris. Both vehicles have seating for up to five passengers. However, the 2019 Fit can configure its interior to make 52.7 cubic-feet available. The 2019 Yaris can’t come close to that mark.

Independent reviews have praised the 2019 Honda Fit for being nimble through turns and very stable at highway speeds. Under the hood of each trim grade coming to Meridian Honda is a naturally aspirated 1.5-liter, four-cylinder engine that can be attached to a six-speed manual or a continuously variable transmission. The LX, Sport and EX trims use the six-speed as standard equipment and will make 130 horsepower and 114 pound-feet of torque. Buyers choosing the EX-L will have the CVT which makes 128 horsepower. On the other hand, the 2019 Yaris uses a 1.5-liter, four-cylinder engine of its own, but its peak output comes in under 110 horsepower.
