2017 Chevy Sonic vs 2017 Honda Fit
Though not the largest segment in the automotive industry, the subcompact car class has plenty of options for anyone buying on a budget. With their relatively low price and excellent fuel efficiency, these vehicles are made for getting from point A to point B without hassle. But although the subcompact segment suits drivers who don't need or desire many frills, not all vehicles are made the same, requiring some research to make sure you find the best option.
When it comes to researching and comparing the 2017 Chevy Sonic vs the 2017 Honda Fit, two models that are likely near the top of your list, the Sonic is certainly the cheaper option when comparing entry level MSRPs. Not only that, but it could also be considered the model with greater value due to its standard 7-inch color touchscreen infotainment display, a much more appealing option than the Fit's standard 5-inch LCD screen. On top of that, the 2017 Sonic comes standard with 4G LTE Wi-Fi, something you won't find on the Fit no matter how much you pay.

The 2017 Sonic Proves to Offer Great Value in the Subcompact Segment
Under the hood, the Sonic proves once again that big things can come in small (and inexpensive) packages. Of course, no subcompact is engineered to tear up the track, but that doesn't mean your drive should be a dull one. That's why the Sonic's standard engine delivers more horsepower and torque than the engine found in the 2017 Fit. Plus, whereas the Fit doesn't offer you any additional engine options, the 2017 Sonic delivers additional torque to those who want it through an available powertrain pumping out 148 lb.-ft.
You may be a buyer on a budget, but when you can get so many additional amenities at a starting MSRP that is still nearly $1,000 less than that on the Fit, it only makes sense to choose the vehicle with far greater value.
