Subcompact cars are the perfect vehicles for Capital Region drivers, who enjoy a fast-paced lifestyle that demands adaptability and versatility. The 2016 Ford Fiesta S Hatchback has been getting a great deal of attention lately, but many drivers are still unsure of how its standard features hold up under scrutiny. To help you get a better sense of what this affordable small car is offering, we’ve compared it to the similarly priced 2017 Honda Fit. As it happens, drivers who want access to today’s most useful standard features will be better off behind the wheel of this year’s Fit!
The Fit’s Features Put You in Control
Pricing isn’t everything in the world of small cars, and it’s wise to be wary of the 2016 Fiesta’s low starting price. Ford’s subcompact starts at $14,880 MSRP, but only a few useful standard features are included with your purchase. A keyless entry system and steering wheel–mounted controls do come standard in the Fiesta, but if you want these features and more, you’ll have to choose the Fit! For just $15,990 MSRP,* the base-model Honda Fit LX 6MT offers the above features plus a rearview camera, delayed power retention, and auto-off headlights.
By choosing the Fit, you’re opting for a car that will help you to be ready for whatever life throws at you. Whether you’re ferrying friends or transporting cargo, you’ll find that the task is much easier and more enjoyable when you’re driving the 2017 Fit. The 2016 Ford Fiesta S Hatchback offers only 85.1 cubic feet of total passenger space and a paltry 25.4 cubic feet of cargo volume! The Fit, on the other hand, has been equipped with under-seat storage and a second-row 60/40-split Magic Seat as standard features! These flexible features allow your Fit to respond to your needs, so you’ll have 95.7 cubic feet of passenger space when you want it, and 52.7 cubic feet of cargo volume when you need it.
