2013 Honda Fit vs. 2013 Mazda MAZDASPEED3 Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Honda Fit offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Mazda MAZDASPEED3 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Honda Fit and the Mazda MAZDASPEED3 in the front seats.

Convenience
The Mazda MAZDASPEED3 requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Honda Fit, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Honda Fit is clearly a better financial choice over the Mazda MAZDASPEED3. 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 Fit and the Mazda MAZDASPEED3 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Honda Fit is much slimmer than the Mazda MAZDASPEED3, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Honda Fit, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Mazda MAZDASPEED3.

Drivetrain
The Honda Fit has much less torque than the Mazda MAZDASPEED3, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Honda Fit has a smaller turning radius than the Mazda MAZDASPEED3, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Honda Fit is significantly less powerful than the Mazda MAZDASPEED3. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Honda Fit and the Mazda MAZDASPEED3. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Honda Fit will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Mazda MAZDASPEED3.

Warranty
The Honda Fit comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mazda MAZDASPEED3.
