17 elegant 2015 Ford Fiesta Vs 2015 Honda Fit Two SubCompacts Face Off

the Honda Fit And Ford Fiesta Two Cars Adored By The Young Thrusters Go Head-to-head In A Five Category Comparison. I'm Your Host Alistair Weaver And.

I'm Joined By Two Men Who Were Once Both Young And Thrusting Representing The Ford Fiesta Is Mike Monticello Championing The Honda Fit It's J Cavanaugh The First Category Up Is Fun To Drive Mike The Fiestas Always Been A Hoot Right Yeah It Sure Has. I Mean The Fiesta Is The Driver's Car Of This Segment With Quick Steering Well Tuned Suspension Unlike The Fit The Fiesta Is Actually Fun To Take Through A Corner Now The 4-cylinder Isn't Totally Inspiring, But The 1-liter 3-cylinder Makes These Fun Growling Sounds And The Turbo Just Adds To The Excitement The Twin Clutch Transmission In The Fiesta Can Be Shifted Manually Not In The Way We're Used To It Has This Weird Rocker Switch, But It Does Split The Throttle On Down Shifts Well The Honda Fits All New This Year And It's Come A Long Way From The Previous Kind Of Dartie Fit The Steering Has Been Vastly Improved And It Feels Much More Stable And Planted, But It's Still Really Possible And Nimble Now Is It As Much Fun As The Fiesta To Put Through A Corner Like Mike Says Probably Not, But The Fiesta With The DCT Is Really Not A Lot Of Fun It's Slow Shifting And The CVT In The Fit Is Actually A Whole Lot Better. So, For Me This Is All About Your Choice Of Transmission, If You Really Want A Fun To Drive Subcompact Choose The Fiesta, But Choose It With A Manual Gearbox One Point To The Fort Moving On To Comfort J Is The Honda Fit For Chillin For Chilling Well In A Way For Sure Because Of The Fits Got This Ingenious Packaging And Really All Of Its Comfort Stems From Just How Vast And Huge It Is Inside In The Front There's About The Same Amount Of Room In The Fit As There Is In The Fiesta, But In The Back Seat It's Just No Comparison There's Eight Inches More Legroom In The Fit Than The Fiesta.

So, For Backseat Passengers You're Living In The Lap Of Luxury And The Fit Has This Really Low Belt Line And Slim Pillars And A Huge Greenhouse. So, Visibility Is Just Outstanding It's True The Fiesta Can't Match The Fit In Terms Of Sheer Interior Volume And Its Seats Are A Little Short On Padding, But According To Our Sound Measurements The Fiesta Is Considerably Quieter Than The Fit Whether You Get The Three Cylinder Or The Four Cylinder At Both 70 Mph Cruising And Full Throttle Acceleration Floor The Throttle And The Fit And It's CVT Gets All Wound Up. So, The Fiestas Quattro At Speed, But You'll Only Really Get Comfortable In The Back Of The Honda Which Gets My Point.

So, Mike What About The Rest Of The Fiestas Interior Well. I Don't Think Either One Of Us Is Super Thrilled About The Control Layouts In In Either Car The Fiestas Are It's High On Forum, But Kind Of Low On Function It's A Little Hard To Decipher Some Of The Controls, But This Car Is Really Easy To Get In And Out Of Especially Considering How Small It Is The Rear Entryway Is A Little Tight Take Some Contorting Or Contortionism. I Don't Know, If Either One Of Those Is A Word, But Also The Fiesta Is A Really Easy Car To See Out Of It Doesn't Come With A Backup Camera And You Know What It Doesn't Need It Okay Nothing In The Segment Can Touch The Fitz Interior Volume There's More Cargo Space Behind The Back Seat And When The Back Seats Folded There's More Than Twice The Cargo Room In The Fit Than In A Fiesta Now We've Not Been Super Impressed By Honda's Latest Touchscreen, But All Of The Cabin Appointments Have Been Nicely Upgraded In This New Fit And Come On The Fitz Magic Back Seat It's.

So, Versatile It Can Be Configured. So, Many Different Ways That The Fiesta Can't That It's Really No Comparison For Me Calling It Magic Is Probably Stretching The Point A Bit Far, But There's No Denying That The Honda's Rear Seats Are Incredibly Clever And The Trunks Huge. So, It Gets Another Point Now Joe These Kind Of Cars Are Generally Bought By People On A Bit Of A Tight Budget.

So, How Much Value Does The Fit Offer Me Well You Do Pay A Little Bit More For The Fit Than You Do For The Fiesta, But When You Look At The Total Value Equation That The Fit Offers From Its Cargo Space To The Fuel Economy To The Clever Touches The Fit Is Really The Car To Beat In This Class Now Some Of The Touch Points In The Fit Are Harder Than They Are In The Fiesta, But The Features List In The Hunt Is Really Impressive You Get A Standard Back Up Camera Whether You Need It Or Not And It Has An Optional Lane Watch System Which Basically Puts A Camera On The Side View Mirror It's Really Clever And Also Let's Not Forget About Fuel Economy The Fitz 36 Mpg Combined Beats All Other Fiestas Irrespective Of Transmission And It Ties The EcoBoost Fiesta Which Is Only Available With A Manual. I Don't Even Know What Irrespective Means, But You Know J Did Make Some Good Points For Me Like The TAS That Starts At About Fourteen Thousand Dollars Which Is Two Thousand Dollars Less Than The Fit And That's A Big Savings In This Class And The 1-liter 3-cylinder Has An Epa Highway Rating Of 45 Mpg Which Is Several Miles Per Gallon Better Than The Fit And The Fiesta Also Comes With Complimentary Roadside Assistance For Five Years 60,000 Miles For Me There's A Clear Winner In This Category And It Is The Ford. So, It's All Down To Our Final Category Of Performance Mic Make Your Final Plea For The Fiesta Well.

I'll Admit That The Fit Has Gotten Pretty Quick And It's About A Half Second Quicker To 60 Miles Per Hour Than The Regular Fiesta Four-cylinder, But The New 1 Liter 3-cylinder Turbo Did 60 Mph In Just Eight Point Nine Seconds Which Is Only A Tenth Slower Than The Fit Now Unfortunately It's Only Available With A Manual Transmission Find For Me. I Don't Know About The Rest Of The World Now J Is Going To Tell You That The Twin Clutch In The Fiesta Four Cylinder Is A Bit Jerky In Low Speed And At Low Speed And That's True It's A Bit Of A Bummer That Ford Hasn't Fixed That Yet, But Once You Get Rolling. I Actually Prefer It With It's Has Very Quick Shifts And None Of The Higher Rpm Droning That V CBT Does Look Mike We Got To Compare The Volume Sellers In This Class Of Car And That's Going To Be The Automatic Transmissions Whether It's The DCT In The Fiesta Or The CVT In The Fit And When You Do That You'll See Like You Said That The Fit Is Significantly Quicker Zero To 60 And It's A Difference You Can Feel Just Drive Them Around In Town You Point It Out Also At The DCT Is A Little Bit Indecisive And.

I Totally Agree It's Easily Confused Whereas The CVT And The Fit It Always Seems To Be Doing The Right Thing At The Right Time And It Has Paddle Shifters On The Steering Wheel Which You Don't Get In The Fiesta Now In Days Go By The Ford With A Monster This Category, But Honda's Come Fighting Back And It Nick's The Final Point. So, J Wins With Three Points Mike Is Their Bitter Loser With Two. So, That's How.
