2016 Honda Fit vs 2016 Chevy Sonic
Hatchbacks are great. Perfect for the city, they're all about fitting tons of versatility and cargo space into a conveniently small package. Of course, some small hatchbacks get that job done better than others, as we can see when we compare the 2016 Honda Fit vs 2016 Chevy Sonic. The new Chevy Sonic and the new Honda Fit have a few qualities in common. They're two of the most stylish hatchbacks in their class, with plenty of bold, fresh color options to choose from. Both vehicles also come with excellent safety scores. However, when it comes to the basics, the 2016 Honda Fit stands a cut above once again.
When we talk about the basics, we're talking about space. Although the 2016 Chevy Sonic hatchback has a larger cargo well than some of its other competitors, it still can't match the 2016 Honda Fit. With a full 39.3" of legroom, the 2016 Honda Fit offers nearly 5 inches of extra passenger space compared to the Chevy Sonic. Your tallest friends will thank you. The 2016 Honda Fit also comes out ahead on overall cargo space.Even better, only the Honda Fit comes with versatile Magic Seats that fold backward as well as forward. With this unique setup, drivers who choose the 2016 Honda fit will be able to utilize every single inch of that extra space.

2016 Honda Fit Offers Better Efficiency, More Features
The 2016 Honda Fit gets excellent gas mileage, especially when equipped with a fuel-saving continuously variable transmission. Although the 2016 Chevy Sonic offers two different 4-cylinder engine options, neither one can match the fuel efficiency ratings of the CVT Honda Fit.*
The Honda Fit also offers a few standard features that aren't available on every Chevy Sonic model. Safety-conscious drivers will be pleased to know that the Honda Fit comes with a standard rearview camera, while the Chevy Sonic only offers it on the deluxe LTZ trim. The Honda Fit also comes standard with cruise control, which surprisingly isn't offered on every Chevy Sonic hatchback.
