Price

When choosing between the Honda Fit vs. Honda Civic Hatchback, savvy shoppers will probably take a good look at the price tag. The good news is that both Honda models feature affordable price points that won't break the bank. The base Honda Civic Hatchback LX starts at an MSRP of just $20,050*, and even the top trim can be had for well under $30,000. But if you're looking for a truly amazing deal, then you'll love the low price of the Honda Fit. The base Fit LX starts at an MSRP of only $16,190*, and the top-of-the-line model is just above $20,000 - including a leather-trimmed interior and cutting-edge technology! You'll get a great deal for either model, but the Honda Fit is more affordable.

Performance

What kind of performance do you want out of your next vehicle? If you're interested in robust horsepower, then the Honda Civic Hatchback is the right choice for you. The base engine delivers 174 hp and 167 lb-ft of torque, and the Sport trims feature a 180-hp engine with up to 177 lb-ft of torque! What if you're more concerned with fuel economy? The Honda Fit's small size and lightweight construction contribute to outstanding efficiency. While it tops out at 130 hp, the Fit LX can generate up to 40 mpg on the highway** when equipped with the available Continuously Variable Transmission. That's an extra 2 miles per gallon when compared to the 38 mpg highway** fuel economy of the Honda Civic Hatchback (LX with a 6-speed manual transmission).

Space

Finally, which vehicle suits your everyday needs? The Honda Civic Hatchback is a larger car overall with 97.2 cubic feet of passenger volume and 46.2 cubic feet of cargo volume with rear seats down. It features a 60/40 split fold-down rear seat design, allowing for greater versatility when storing your cargo. When you compare the compact Honda Civic to the subcompact Honda Fit, you may be surprised. The Fit has less passenger volume at 95.7 cubic feet, but it can actually accommodate up to 52.7 cubic feet of cargo space with rear seats down. Why? Honda's exclusive Magic Seat technology allows you to maneuver the seats and seat backs in multiple positions for tall and long cargo. Overall, both offer incredible adaptability.
