2015 Honda Fit vs. 2015 Volkswagen Golf Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda Fit than the Volkswagen Golf. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Honda Fit and the Volkswagen Golf in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Volkswagen Golf you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Honda Fit, 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 Honda Fit is clearly a better financial choice over the Volkswagen Golf. 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 Volkswagen Golf have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Honda Fit is much slimmer than the Volkswagen Golf, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Honda Fit is slightly shorter than the Volkswagen Golf, which may make it easier to park.

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

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

Performance
The Honda Fit has less horsepower than the Volkswagen Golf, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Honda Fit and the Volkswagen Golf. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Honda Fit as you will in the Volkswagen Golf.

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