Efficiency and Performance
The 2018 Honda Fit runs on a 1.5L inline-4 engine, and when mated to a continuously variable transmission, it returns an EPA-estimated 33 mpg city and 40 mpg highway* It also achieves 128 hp and 113 lb-ft of torque. Meanwhile, the 2018 Ford Fiesta is powered by a larger 1.6L inline-4 engine, yet it musters just 120 hp and 112 lb-ft of torque while also coming in below the Fit in terms of efficiency at 27 mpg city and 35 mpg highway.
If you’re choosing a hatchback, then chances are, you prioritize space, which is why you’re likely to be quite intrigued by the 2018 Honda Fit’s dimensions:
- Standard cargo volume of 16.6 cubic feet
- Maximum cargo volume of 52.7 cubic feet
- Passenger volume of 95.7 cubic feet
Compare those figures to those of the 2018 Ford Fiesta at 14.9 cubic feet as standard, 25.4 cubic feet maximum, and 85.1 cubic feet for passengers, and your decision should be clear. What’s more, the Fit promises features like a 60/40-split folding rear seat and cruise control as standard, but the Fiesta does not.
