2015 Ford Fiesta vs 2015 Honda Fit


Subcompact vehicles such as the Ford Fiesta and Honda Fit continue to gain a great deal of popularity on the market, as the smaller size of the vehicles allow them to provide some of the highest fuel economy ratings on the market. Seeing as there isn’t much mass either, it doesn’t take much to propel the cars down the road, meaning the engine options found beneath the hood are often capable of producing some serious power. However, if you want to take advantage of both efficiency and power, you will be sure to find that when comparing the 2015 Ford Fiesta vs 2015 Honda Fit, one of the vehicles is more beneficial.

In terms of options, the Fiesta has a significant advantage. There are two different engine sizes to choose from, but as one comes turbocharged, you are able to get a range of power. If you don’t really need much in terms of power, you can opt for the 1.6-liter four-cylinder, which comes standard in the first three trims. The engine produces 120 horsepower which is a bit less than the engine of the Honda Fit, but as we said, there is an EcoBoost option in the Fiesta ST which allows you to take advantage of up to 197 horsepower.

With such an impressive output, it’s clear to see that the Fiesta ST is a vehicle built on performance. It is reserved for those who want to take on roads with confidence, and as it has a manual transmission, it can satisfy even the most intense desires for sheer driving pleasure. The Honda Fit simply can not match it.

Benefits of the 2015 Ford Fiesta

Perhaps one of the biggest advantages that the Fiesta holds over the Fit involves one of its engine options, which is a 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine that equips just three cylinders, allowing it to get some extremely high fuel economy ratings. While the majority of four-cylinder-equipped Fiesta models are able to get 37 mpg on the highway, the three-cylinder engine is able to stretch a gallon as far as 43 mpg on the highway, an impressive feat even for a vehicle of its size. The rating is slightly higher than the 41 mpg that comes from the four-cylinder engine of the Honda Fit, allowing you to go much further on much less.

To top it all off, the starting price of the Fiesta falls slightly below that of the Fit. The difference is only about $1,000, but when you break that down in terms of monthly payments, the lower price of the Fiesta is definitely beneficial. That is not to say that the Fit is completely outnumbered by the Fiesta. It does have a bit more space in the back with the rear seats collapsed, but if you find that you don’t often use your car for storing or hauling, the 25.4-cubic foot cargo capacity in the Ford offering is sure to suit your needs.
