Hatchbacks are natural cargo-haulers because of their unique geometry. While both the 2020 Honda Fit and the 2020 Toyota Yaris Hatchback have room for five passengers, with very similar dimensions for legroom, the Honda hatchback is able to easily eclipse its rival for cargo volume. When people are occupying the rear seat of the Honda Fit, there is still 16.6 cubic-feet of cargo volume available. Folding the rear seats down will open the available cargo volume up to 52.7 cubic-feet. Not only is this significantly more room than what the 2020 Yaris Hatchback has to offer (15.86 cubic-feet), but it also rivals many small crossover SUVs. Finally, tech-savvy customers will have access to the latest Honda technology in the Sport trim and above with a smartphone-compatible infotainment system. Owners of the 2020 Fit will have access to both the Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™.
