2016 Honda Fit

The 2016 Chevrolet Sonic and the 2016 Honda Fit both provide affordable, efficient, fun-to-drive transportation. Both could be the perfect recipe if you’re searching for a new car in this segment. Before you make up you mind, make sure you take a close look at how they stack up side-by-side below.

  • Power: The base Sonic uses a 1.8L four-cylinder that generates 138 hp and 125 lb-ft of torque, and a turbocharged 1.4L is available for 138 hp and 148 lb-ft of torque. The one powertrain in the Fit is a 1.5L four-cylinder engine that makes 130 hp and 114 lb-ft of torque. The Sonic will almost definitely be quicker.

  • Efficiency: The Honda Fit earns a 29 mpg city/37 mpg highway with a manual, or 32 mpg city/38 mpg highway with a continuously variable transmission in most trim levels. The Sonic is rated at 29 mpg city/40 mpg highway with turbo 1.4L four-cylinder and the manual transmission or up to 27 mpg city/37 mpg highway when equipped with the automatic transmission and the 1.4L four-cylinder.

  • Warranty Coverage: Chevrolet covers the Sonic with up to 100,000-miles/5-years of powertrain coverage. Honda only offers 60,000-miles/5-years of powertrain coverage for the Fit. Both automakers offer roadside assistance for the length of the powertrain coverage.

  • Included Maintenance: The Chevy comes with two years of included maintenance service, while Honda does not offer any maintenance. You’ll have to pay for that out of pocket with the Fit.

  • Telematics: Like every Chevrolet model, the Sonic comes standard with OnStar telematics and 4G LTE wireless connectivity with in-car WiFi hotspot. None of those features come standard on the Honda Fit. In fact, none of those features can even be ordered on the Fit for any price.

  • Price: The most affordable Sonic starts at only $14,345. The Honda Fit starts at $15,790 MSRP.
