2020 Honda Civic Hatchback vs. 2020 Honda Fit

Are you looking for a nimble hatchback that can accommodate any plans for the day? The versatile Honda Civic Hatchback vs. Honda Fit are ideal choices for busy Union drivers. These cars are adaptable with flexible cabin designs, as well as fuel-efficient and high-tech. But with only room for one in your garage, which will you choose? Let’s break down the key differences.

Honda Civic vs. Honda Fit: Starting Price

If budget is your top priority, the Honda Fit LX is a steal of a deal in South Plainfield at just $16,190 MSRP. In fact, every model of the Honda Fit lineup costs less than the entry-level Honda Civic Hatchback LX with CVT which has a $21,750 MSRP. However, both lineups offer amazing value with affordable price points. And if you need a little help with the budget, consider checking out our Honda Civic specials!

Honda Civic vs. Honda Fit: Performance Specs

While the Honda Fit is the champion of the pricing category, the Civic is the king of performance. The Civic Hatchback delivers a surprisingly sporty performance with its 174-hp 1.5L turbocharged, while the Fit feels more like your typical sedan with a respectable 130-hp 1.5L 4-cylinder. The Civic Hatchback LX with CVT transmission also squeezes out a few extra miles per gallon with 31 city/40 highway mpg* compared to 29 city/36 highway mpg* for the Fit. You won’t be disappointed with either, but the Civic is the more athletic of the two.

Honda Civic vs. Honda Fit: Interior Features

Both models are 5-door hatchbacks with seating for five and while the Civic has a slight edge when it comes to passenger space, the Fit achieves a shocking amount of space inside its subcompact frame. That’s because the Honda Fit is equipped with Honda’s exclusive 2nd-Row Magic Seat®, which features multiple configurations like Tall Mode and Long Mode. So no matter which vehicle you choose, you’ll enjoy a surprisingly spacious interior.
