2019 Honda Fit vs 2019 Toyota Yaris
At Mel Rapton Honda, we take a great deal of pride in working hard to keep our customers informed. It is for that reason that we often try to compare and contrast our new Honda vehicles with those of other carmakers. This time around we thought we'd match up the sporty 2019 Honda Fit with the 2019 Toyota Yaris. Let's take a closer look at what both of these subcompact cars have to offer drivers in and around Sacramento.
2019 Honda Fit
The first thing that will jump out at prospective buyers is the efficiency, price, and performance that the five-door 2019 Honda Fit for sale in Sacramento brings to the table. This model is available in four trim levels, eight exterior colors. Despite its smaller size, the 2019 Honda Fit offers a good deal of performance. The Honda Fit comes with a 16-Valve DOHC i-VTEC in-line four-cylinder engine with an 11.5:1 compression ratio that puts out up to 130 horsepower at 6,600 rpm and 114 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,600 rpm. To give drivers control of the Honda Fit it can be equipped with either a six-speed manual transmission or the CVT with Sport Mode and available Dual-Mode paddle shifters that can offer an impressive EPA-est. 40-mpg highway/33-mpg city in fuel economy.* The ride of this subcompact is smooth and predictable due to the MacPherson strut front suspension, torsion-beam rear suspension, and electric power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering. As with all the 2019 Honda vehicles from Mel Rapton Honda, the Honda Fit comes standard with Honda Sensing. This exclusive safety system includes active safety features including:
· Lane Keeping Assist System
· Adaptive Cruise Control
· Road Departure Mitigation System
· Collision Mitigation Braking System
· Lane Departure Warning
· Forward Collision Warning
You'll also drive with confidence because of the Stability Assist with Traction Control system and Multi-Angle Rearview camera. To keep you comfortable and connected the 2019 Honda Fit is packed with the latest cutting-edge tech features. Depending on the trim level, drivers and passengers will benefit from the seven-inch display with High-Resolution WVGA Electrostatic Touch-Screen, HondaLink, and Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System with Voice Recognition. If comfort is your thing, the 2019 Honda Fit is both flexible and luxurious thanks to the air conditioning with air-filtration system, available heated leather-trimmed seats, and leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob.
2019 Toyota Yaris
While the 2019 Toyota Yaris is a perfectly serviceable subcompact car it does fall short in a number of categories. Available in just three trim levels, the Toyota Yaris comes with a 1.5-liter engine that puts out 106 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 103 lb.-ft. of torque. When combined with the six-speed automatic or manual transmission the 2019 Toyota Yaris gets a max of 32-mpg city/40-mpg hwy in fuel economy.** While it doesn't have the benefits of Honda Sensing, the Yaris does feature Dynamic Stability Control, Traction Control System, Brake Assist, Active Safety System, Low-Speed Pre-Collision System, and a Brake Over-Ride System. Some other benefits of the Toyota Yaris include a cabin air filter, rear seat heater ducts, and steering wheel-mounted audio controls.
