Comparison Review

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

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Sonic as you will with the Honda Fit, 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 Chevrolet Sonic is somewhat more expensive than the Honda Fit. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Chevrolet Sonic will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Honda Fit.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Sonic is a little wider than the Honda Fit, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet Sonic takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Honda Fit.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet Sonic transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Honda Fit.

Handling
The Chevrolet Sonic has about the same turning radius as the Honda Fit, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Sonic is somewhat more powerful than the Honda Fit.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Sonic and the Honda Fit. The Chevrolet Sonic has less cargo capacity than the Honda Fit, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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