LOMA LINDA, Calif., March 25, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Toyota and Honda have been long time rivals on a couple of different continents and through many different countries. When that battle hit American shores, the war for supremacy among compact car owners remains hotly contested today. With gas prices seemingly never finding a hard ceiling, and with the need of people to still get the daily commutes and errands finished, finding a car with high fuel-economy and room to allow enough functionality to be worthwhile as a compact cargo hauler. Of the models that each automaker offers for comparison, the 2013 Honda Fit and the 2013 Toyota Yaris pop into mind for many.
When comparing the 2013 Honda Fit vs. the 2013 Toyota Yaris in Riverside, CA, starting with the engine characteristics would be seemingly the most logical. Both vehicles offer 1.5-liter, four-cylinder engine that comes paired with a five-speed manual transmission as a standard feature. However the 2013 Honda Fit near Riverside, CA does offer a four-speed automatic as an available option. The Toyota offering does receive a slightly better Environmental Protection Agency rating of 30 mpg (city)/37 mpg (highway) opposed to the 27 mpg/33 mpg of the Honda Fit. However, the new Honda Fit in Riverside, CA does have lots of other positive qualities that make up for this miniscule difference in fuel-efficiency.
The new Honda Fit offered for sale at Spreen Honda in Loma Linda, CA has an impressive array of standard features with its base model like, a full suite of power accessories such as locks, windows and keyless entry. All three of these are not available on the Toyota Yaris, while the Honda Fit continues to offer air conditioning, cruise control and a 60/40 folding back seat. The Yaris again comes up empty in the cruise control department.
The Riverside 2013 Honda Fit really shines over the Toyota Yaris in terms of cargo capacity. The rear seats on the Honda Fit offer convenient storage bins under the back seat and that folding rear seats folds down nearly flat to open up 57 cubic-feet of cargo space; a measurement that places it near the top of its class.
