The Toyota Yaris is an efficient small hatchback that might save you money on gas when compared to plenty of other vehicles. When you compare the Toyota Yaris to the 2016 Honda Fit, however, you’ll find that the Yaris looks practically like a gas guzzler. Take a look at the estimates from the Environmental Protection Agency below, and you’ll see just how far ahead the Fit is.
Fuel economy isn’t complicated—the EPA gives accurate estimates for exactly how far you’ll be able to get on a gallon gas depending on the style of driving you’re doing. Take a look at how the Fit and the Yaris match up:
- The Honda Fit LX with continuously variable transmission earns an EPA-estimated 33 mpg city/41 mpg highway/36 mpg combined.*
- The Toyota Yaris earns an EPA-estimated 30 mpg city/36 mpg highway/32 mpg combined with 4-speed automatic transmission.
It’s clear that the Honda Fit earns superior fuel economy figures.
Even with those better efficiency numbers, the Honda Fit makes more power than the Yaris:
- The Honda Fit comes standard with a 1.5L 4-cylinder engine that cranks out 130 hp and 114 lb-ft of torque.
- The Toyota Yaris also comes with a 1.5L 4-cylinder, but it only makes 106 hp and 103 lb-ft of torque.
The Honda Fit clearly offers more horsepower and torque, making it more fun to drive, and allowing it to accelerate to highway speeds with less drama.
The Honda Fit and the Toyota Yaris are both affordable small cars. The Honda Fit simply comes with more equipment. Even the base model LX gets highlights like:
- A rearview camera for easy parking and reversing
- Cruise control
- Steering wheel–mounted controls for audio and cruise control
- Remote keyless access system
- Automatic headlights
- Vehicle and stereo theft-deterrent systems
The Toyota Yaris is lacking every one of those features.
