The 2013 Honda Fit vs. the 2013 Kia Rio
If you’d like a sporty subcompact that is built for navigating the urban jungle, then the versatile 2013 Honda Fit is the car for you. This little car has it all, and at Middletown Honda, one of the leading Honda dealers for Goshen, we are thrilled to offer a great selection of these efficient, fun to drive, fully-loaded road warriors. There really isn’t another subcompact that offers the flexible functionality of the Fit, despite all the competition. Just take a look at how it matches up to the Kia Rio.
Built to Handle Any Challenge
The competition between attractive, zippy, well-rounded subcompacts has increased dramatically in recent years, but the Honda Fit is still the leader of the pack.
Featuring an efficient and surprisingly powerful 4-cylinder 1.5L engine, the front wheel drive Fit comes with a standard manual transmission. Known for its remarkable handling, this is a vehicle that is ready to take on any challenge the urban landscape presents.
Versatility is the key to the success of Honda’s 4-door hatchback. With a maximum cargo capacity of 57.3 cubic feet, to the Rio’s 49.8 cubic feet, and passenger volume of 90.8 cubic feet, to the 88.4 cubic feet of the Kia, the roomy interior is a pleasant surprise in a car of this size, ensuring you’ll have enough room for friends or storage.
A wide range of standard features helps round out the package. Among these features are many that you won’t find with the Rio, including:
- Power windows and power door locks (which you will pay to upgrade on the Rio)
- Cruise control with steering wheel-mounted controls
- Telescopic steering column
- Stereo anti-theft system
- Under-seat storage
With a 5-star front driver crash rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (the Rio is rated at 4 stars), the Fit is another fine example of the commitment to vehicle safety that Honda is so famous for.
