Let's see how the 2016 Honda Fit stacks up against the Nissan Versa Note.
If you are looking at subcompact cars, chances are that fuel economy and value are crucial to you. On the fuel economy front, the 2016 Honda Fit provides significant cost savings over Nissan's Versa Note. With an EPA-estimated 33 city/41 highway mpg rating*, the Fit hatchback achieves a full 2 mpg greater in the city, and 1 mpg better on the highway. The city mpg ratings are likely the most significant for subcompact vehicles, since most drivers of these small vehicles will spend more time driving in cities, where the agile characteristics of subcompacts really shine.
While most subcompact car drivers probably aren't racing their vehicles on the weekends, it is still nice to have some added power under the hood, for merging onto freeways or using the passing lane. The 2016 Honda Fit's 1.5-liter engine develops a highly capable 130 horsepower and 114 lb-ft of torque, which gives Fit drivers a whopping 21 hp and 7 lb-ft of torque advantage over drivers of the Versa Note. Anyone who has driven a lightweight car like these subcompacts can appreciate that an additional 21 horses can make a world of a difference in real-world driving.
With better fuel economy and more power, the 2016 Honda Fit is the clear winner in this subcompact hatchback battle. When you are ready to test drive a 2016 Honda Fit hatchback near Petaluma, Rohnert Park, Sebastopol, and Sonoma, visit Manly Honda, located at 2777 Corby Ave., in Santa Rosa, CA.
