Vehicle Comparison Rundown

The Honda Fit and the Toyota Yaris are both subcompact cars. They both come with front-wheel drive. The Fit is available as a five-door wagon, while the Yaris comes in either a three-door or a five-door hatchback body style.

When it comes to power, the Honda Fit has the edge, with a standard 128 to 130 horsepower, depending on the transmission selected. The Toyota Yaris has 106 horsepower, giving up more than 20 horsepower to the Fit. 

The Fit also has an advantage in terms of interior space, with an amazing 95.7 cubic feet, compared to about 85 cubic feet in the Yaris. The Fit also comes with its unique Magic Seat. This feature lets you adjust the folding rear seat to maximize the available space, for carrying either very long or very tall items.

One significant advantage of the Yaris is that it offers the Toyota Safety Sense C suite of safety technology as standard equipment on all Yaris models. This includes a pre-collision system, lane departure alert and automatic high beams. The Fit offers its comparable Honda Sensing suite of safety features, but this is an extra-cost option on the two lower trim levels.

For power and interior space, the Honda Fit wins this comparison. But for the best standard safety equipment on every model in the lineup, the Toyota Yaris is the leader.
