Drivers shopping for a subcompact car for its superior fuel economy will be glad to hear that the 2017 Honda Fit is the most fuel-efficient subcompact car on the road. It easily beats the competition, and offers drivers more power and features than any other subcompact. Let’s take a closer look at everything it can offer drivers in the Capital Region.
Offering better fuel economy means that the Honda Fit can lead to more savings down the road and over time than some other subcompacts. Starting with the Fit, the estimated fuel economies of some of the most popular entry-level subcompacts are:
- 2017 Honda Fit LX CVT – EPA-estimated 33 city / 40 highway mpg*
- 2016 Nisan Versa Note S Plus – 31 city / 40 highway mpg
- 2016 Ford Fiesta S Hatchback – 28 city / 36 highway mpg
- 2016 Kia Soul Base – 24 city / 30 highway
The Fit Has More Power
To achieve a superior fuel economy, some drivers might think that the Fit lags behind in terms of horsepower. But the Fit has its competition beat there, too. Unlike the Versa Note, which is the closest behind the Fit in fuel economy but drops significantly in hp, the Fit still produces up to a muscular 130 hp @ 6,000 rpm. To compare, the other vehicles mentioned above produce:
- Versa Note – 109 hp @ 6,000 rpm
- Fiesta – 120 hp @ 6350 rpm
- Soul – 118 hp @ 4850 rpm
More Features on the Fit
You’ll also find more features inside and out on the Honda Fit. It’s one of the most well-equipped vehicles and offers equipment you won’t find on the other models such as:
- Power windows
- Cruise control
- Rearview camera
- Second-row 60/40-split bench seat
- Stereo anti-theft
- Under-seat storage
- Automatic headlights
To find the same equipment on the Versa Note, Fiesta, or Soul, you’ll have to either add them as options if available, or explore higher trim levels. Either way, that means paying more. So, not only does the Fit offer more power to go with its better fuel economy, but the overall better value lies with the Fit, too, as you’ll get more features and equipment as the standard.
