2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback vs. 2019 Honda Fit

Toyota hatchbacks were introduced to American customers during the height of a global gasoline shortage. These vehicles were prized for their affordability, quality and outstanding efficiency. While this is a great foundation, these things just aren’t enough for 21st-century buyers. A comparison of the 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback vs. 2019 Honda Fit will be a very clear way to see how Toyota has responded to changes in the marketplace and have found innovative ways to boost performance without sacrificing fuel efficiency as well as equipping vehicles with the latest available connectivity technology. The 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback is available right now at the Colonial Toyota showroom. Customers can schedule a test drive or technology demonstration today by calling, 203-403-6890.
Both the 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback and the 2019 Honda Fit offer similar layouts to potential owners. Each vehicle has a highly adaptable interior and two rows of seating with room for up to five passengers. However, that’s not the area where the 2019 Corolla Hatchback really shines. All trim grades of the 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback are equipped with a smartphone-compatible infotainment system that can work with both Apple CarPlay™ and the Amazon Alexa digital home assistant. The 2019 Honda Fit offers similar capabilities, but they are not available across the board. Additionally, the 2019 Corolla Hatchback was among the first Toyota vehicles to feature the in-car high-speed 4G Wi-Fi hotspot. This feature isn’t available in any form on the 2019 Honda Fit.

Performance and Efficiency Specs

Toyota and Honda have made a single power plant option available for both hatchbacks. Under the hood of the 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback is a naturally aspirated 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine which can be attached to a six-speed manual or a continuously variable transmission. It will make 168 horsepower and 155 pound-feet of torque. This is significantly more power than what is produced by the naturally aspirated 1.5-liter, four-cylinder engine used by the 2019 Honda Fit. The Honda hatchback will produce 130 horsepower and 114 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed manual or CVT can also be employed by the current Honda Fit.

Not only does the 2019 Corolla Hatchback make more power, but it’s also more efficient when it's properly equipped. Using the CVT, the 2019 Corolla Hatchback can record 32 miles per gallon in the city and up to 42 miles per gallon on the highway. The best the 2019 Fit can offer is about the same across the board.
