The 2013 Honda Fit vs. the 2013 Chevy Sonic

2013 Honda FitThe 2013 Honda Fit has proven to be a great car for Middletown and Mahwah drivers looking for a low-cost, compact, well-equipped vehicle. Like the rest of Honda’s line, it comes with a strong reputation for safety and strong performance.

The 2013 Chevy Sonic is a similarly-priced vehicle in the subcompact vehicle class. But with a better fuel economy, and more standard features, some drivers may prefer to go with the 2013 Honda Fit. We’ll take a closer look at both models.

Fuel Economy

Drivers expect to get as many miles as they can out of each gallon on a subcompact vehicle. The 2013 Honda Fit with automatic transmission gets an EPA estimated 31 mpg combined rating, compared to the 28 mpg average on the Chevy Sonic. That adds up to big fuel savings over the vehicle’s lifetime.

Vehicle Features

The Fit also comes with a full suite of features that drivers expect from their vehicles. Despite a similar starting price, the Sonic misses many of these features. Here are a few of the features on the base automatic transmission Fit drivers are enjoying that are missing on the 2013 comparable Sonic model:

  • Power windows
  • Cruise control
  • A second-row, split row bench, increasing your storage options
  • A CD player with a stereo anti-theft feature
  • Cargo area tie-downs
  • A rear wiper
  • Power-adjustable, folding exterior mirrors

Cargo Space

The Fit also has a total cargo volume of 20.6 cubic feet, compared with the 14.9 cubic feet available on the Sonic. This means more room for groceries, gear, or whatever you need to pack along.
