Driver's seat view in the 2016 Ford Fiesta

For drivers looking for maneuverability, low fuel consumption, and features at an economical price, it's smart to look in the subcompact segment. While the name may bring to mind sardine-can cars with minimal power, nothing could be further from the truth. While subcompact cars, like the two vehicles in this 2016 Ford Fiesta vs 2016 Honda Fit comparison aren't massive vehicles, both offer the discerning individual a spritely and economical option for the daily commute and other life journeys. Still, between two vehicles there are always advantages and disadvantages, and for a little more fun the 2016 Ford Fiesta pulls ahead.

The 2016 Honda Fit is a four-door hatchback, while the four-door 2016 Ford Fiesta is available in either hatchback or sedan form. These vehicles, no matter the body style, have more interior space than you might expect from the compact exterior, while offering excellent steering and mileage. The Ford in particular offers extremely responsive handling, especially on curves. This makes this car extremely fun to drive.

2016 Ford Fiesta features and powertrain advantages

While this is enough to get the Fit where you need to go, it's not necessarily a powerhouse. The 2016 Ford Fiesta on the other hand is available with three engine options. The standard 1.6-liter four-cylinder generates 120 horsepower, and an optional economical Ecoboost 1.0-liter turbocharged three-cylinder offers 123 horsepower and 43 mpg on the highway. A top turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder is available only in the sport optimized ST trim, and delivers a top horsepower of 197.

When it comes to features, the 2016 Ford Fiesta offers slightly more advanced options, especially when comparing the elite Titanium trim to the top Honda Fit EX-L trim. Features like automatic air conditioning, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and voice recognition are standard on the 2016 Fiesta and optional or not available in the Fit. The Ford SYNC 3 system available on the Fiesta also offers very useful and intuitive controls.
