2016 Ford Fiesta

The 2016 Honda Fit has proven itself to be the subcompact car to buy. Combining Honda’s world-renowned quality with the latest in comfort and convenience, the 2016 Honda Fit delivers an experience that’s as easy as it’s fun. Nothing illustrates the joy of a 2016 Honda Fit quite like driving one, but a quick comparison between the 2016 Honda Fit and its competition, the 2016 Ford Fiesta, is a close second.


With its 4-cylinder aluminum alloy engine and Honda’s patented EcoAssist system, the 2016 Honda Fit delivers a sporty, athletic driving experience. With a respectable 130 horsepower, the Fit drives comfortably and confidently without being overaggressive. This makes it perfect for the highway, the city, or the suburbs, and it can handle heavy traffic or winding roads like few other cars in its class. Best of all, the 2016 Honda Fit achieves this performance while getting 33 mpg city* and 41 mpg highway*.

The 2016 Ford Fiesta, by comparison, features a 1.6L Ti-VCT engine, which only delivers 120 horsepower. Higher ends models of the Fiesta do improve on this, but you have to go to the highest end model, the ST hatchback, to beat what comes standard on the 2016 Honda Fit. The downside is, that model of the Fiesta requires premium fuel. The Fiesta’s fuel economy – 36 mpg combined – is comparable to that of the 2016 Honda Fit. However, it doesn’t make up for what it lacks in performance, handling, and style.


In addition to beating the competition in performance and handling, the 2016 Honda Fit also outshines similar cars in available features. Read on, and see for yourself:

Buying a car is a big decision, but the specifications of the 2016 Honda Fit and Honda’s reputation for quality makes that decision that much easier.
