In base trim, the Honda Fit is simply a more versatile, powerful and value-packed ride than the Toyota Yaris. For starters, every Honda Fit comes with four doors and a liftback (5-door) which makes the loading and unloading of passengers and cargo a breeze. The Yaris base model is a 3-door car (two side doors plus the hatch), and you will have to upgrade to get into a more practical 5-door model. As Honda's Fit is larger than the Yaris, it should come as no surprise that the Fit provides greater passenger space, cargo volume and maximum cargo capacity than the Toyota. Plus, nothing that the Yaris offers can stack up against the Fit's Magic Seat, which converts the rear bench seat into a variety of forms to accomodate a variety of cargo.
It turns out that the Fit subcompact is only a 'subcompact' by classification. Inside its cabin, you will find many of the latest high-tech features from Honda that you would get on a larger model like the Civic or CR-V. In other words, the Fit is by no means an economy car! With its high-tech cabin, spacious seating and fold-flat rear bench seat, it is no wonder that Honda's Fit is routinely rated higher than other cars in its class like the Toyota Yaris. The Yaris slots below the Corolla in the Toyota lineup and is meant to be an economy car and nothing more.
With its significantly more powerful engine and low weight, the Honda Fit feels vastly more capable out on the road than the Toyota Yaris. If you are looking for a small car that you will enjoy driving in the straights and the corners, then the Honda Fit is for you!
