2014 Ford Fiesta vs. 2014 Honda Civic Hybrid Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda Civic Hybrid than the Ford Fiesta, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Ford Fiesta and the Honda Civic Hybrid in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Honda Civic Hybrid you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Ford Fiesta, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Based on MSRP, the Ford Fiesta is clearly a better financial choice over the Honda Civic Hybrid. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Ford Fiesta will cost more in transportation costs than the Honda Civic Hybrid.

Dimensions
The Ford Fiesta is a little narrower than the Honda Civic Hybrid, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The Ford Fiesta is slightly shorter than the Honda Civic Hybrid, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Ford Fiesta transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Honda Civic Hybrid.

Handling
The Ford Fiesta has a smaller turning radius than the Honda Civic Hybrid, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Fiesta has a much more powerful engine than the Honda Civic Hybrid. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Ford Fiesta and the Honda Civic Hybrid. The Ford Fiesta has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Honda Civic Hybrid.

Warranty
The Ford Fiesta comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Honda Civic Hybrid.
