2016 Honda Civic vs. 2016 Honda Fit Review

Comparison Review

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

Convenience
With the Honda Civic you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Honda Fit, due to its larger tank size and better 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). The Honda Civic will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Honda Fit, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Honda Civic and the Honda Fit have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Honda Civic is much wider than the Honda Fit, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Honda Civic, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Honda Fit.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Honda Civic does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Honda Fit.

Handling
The Honda Civic has a larger turning radius than the Honda Fit, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Honda Civic has a much more powerful engine than the Honda Fit. 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 Honda Civic and the Honda Fit. The Honda Civic has significantly less cargo room than the Honda Fit, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Honda Civic comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Honda Fit.
