It’s hard to imagine a hatchback with more to offer than the 2018 Honda Fit. In addition to offering dozens of standard features and an enormous, flexible interior, the new Fit easily outperforms the competition when it comes to fuel efficiency. Hampton Roads drivers can see how the Fit LX CVT measures up against the 2017 Chevrolet Sonic Hatchback LT Auto, the 2017 Nissan Versa Note S Plus, and the 2017 Kia Soul Base by reading on below.

The Fit’s Top Competitors Fall Short

When it comes to efficiency, the new Fit is in a league of its own. Although it comes standard with a manual transmission, a fuel-economy-boosting continuously variable transmission is available even in its baseline LX trim. With the CVT equipped, the Fit gets an EPA-estimated 33 mpg city and 40 mpg highway,* ratings that none of its major competitors can match.

The estimates for the Sonic Hatchback and the Kia Soul Base are especially lackluster. The former provides fuel economy of just 24 mpg city and 34 mpg highway. Drivers who choose the Soul will be even worse off, with 24 mpg city and 30 mpg highway.

The 2017 Nissan Versa Note S Plus, with 31 mpg city and 39 mpg highway, is the only top competitor that really comes close to matching the Fit’s potential. With that being said, the Note S Plus is hardly an even match for the Fit in other regards. This Nissan’s horsepower, torque, safety ratings, and standard features all seem disappointing when compared to the Fit.
