2013 Honda Fit vs. 2013 smart fortwo Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Honda Fit and the smart fortwo in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Honda Fit as you will with the smart fortwo, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 Fit is somewhat more expensive than the smart fortwo. 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 will cost more in transportation costs than the smart fortwo.

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

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

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

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

Utility
People who frequently chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the Honda Fit more than the smart fortwo, due to its significantly greater seating capacity. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Honda Fit will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the smart fortwo.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Honda Fit is not as nearly as extensive as that of the smart fortwo.
