Do the 2016 Toyota Yaris Standard Features Compare to the 2016 Honda Fit?

2016-honda-fit-taillightAre the 2016 Toyota Yaris standard features enough for our Eastern Kentucky, Southern Ohio, and West Virginia drivers, or is there a better option? We put the Yaris side-by-side with one of its top competitors, the 2016 Honda Fit, so that you can make the right decision for your needs and drive home a subcompact hatchback you’re happy with.

While Honda has been revamping what many drivers think of when it comes to standard features, Toyota has been producing the same Yaris as the previous years; can it stand up?

Which Hatchback Offers More?

One of the greatest strengths of the 2016 Honda Fit is that it simply doesn’t feel like a subcompact hatchback. It’s sleek on the outside while spacious on the inside. It has a suite of advanced tech features on the standard model and a high-end trim that competes with cars larger and more expensive. It’s hard for the 2016 Toyota Yaris standard features to compete.

Here’s a look at what you can find on the Fit:

  • Bluetooth HandsFreeLink: Sync your phone up wirelessly and stream music or make hands-free phone calls.
  • Honda Magic Seat: The rear seat on the Fit folds down in seconds, and you can also fold it up to set tall items on the cabin floor.
  • Multi-angle rearview camera: Each Fit has a rearview camera system with three different views—standard, top-down, and wide-angle—for confidence backing up and parking.
  • Eco Assist: With just the push of a button, the Fit can switch from standard driving to the economical and fuel-efficient “Eco Assist” mode.

To put things in perspective, the Yaris requires upgrades for amenities like cruise control, let alone a rearview camera or a split folding rear seat. The 2016 Toyota Yaris standard features embrace what many drivers used to expect from small cars: little to nothing.
