Hatchbacks look sporty, they offer more cargo space than a sedan, and they often offer fun handling, but many end up playing second fiddle to SUVs. The 2018 Honda Fit bucks the trend by delivering just a bit more of everything. Pacific Honda looks at how it stacks up against the 2018 Nissan Versa Note.
2018 Honda Fit
Like the Nissan Versa Note, the 2018 Honda Fit offers one engine. The difference is that the Honda model offers it in two states of tune, both of which have more horsepower than the Nissan model.
We also suggest looking beyond the price tag. Yes, the Honda Fit costs more, but in the process, it proves the old adage that you get what you pay for. Even in base trim, it’s generously equipped with standard features like the flat-folding Magic Seat that maximizes cargo space, cruise control, tilt/telescopic steering wheel, and power windows and locks.
That’s not to say that premium features can’t be optioned in. Talk to your San Diego Honda dealer about adding Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Keep Assist, as well as a host of other great comfort and tech features.
2018 Nissan Versa Note
The 2018 Nissan Versa Note is often lauded for its fuel economy, but that saving comes at the expense of power. You won’t need to make the trade-off with the Honda Fit.
If you’re buying with space in mind, the two cars are only a cubic foot apart in passenger volume, but they’re more than 14 cubic feet apart in cargo volume. In both cases, the advantage goes to the Honda Fit.
Like all new Honda models, the Honda Fit is packed with standard features, many of which its Nissan competitor simply doesn’t have, or which will cost extra. These include keyless entry, automatic headlights, anti-theft system, front seats with adjustable seat height, and a rearview camera.
There’s plenty more to be said about the 2018 Honda Fit, but we suggest making an educated choice by seeing this great hatchback in person and taking a test drive. No car is perfect, but the Honda Fit certainly gives its competition a run for the money. Call (858) 694-1000 or visit Pacific Honda at 4761 Convoy St in San Diego, CA today!
