While SUVs and crossovers are currently the hottest commodity at the dealership, practical shoppers interested in finding a great deal still know that the sedan and hatchback market is where to look. Plus, with smaller fuel costs overall compared to larger gas-guzzling models, a sedan or hatchback can provide additional savings each month on fuel costs.
Two competitive models in the compact sedan and hatchback segments are the 2019 Toyota Yaris and 2019 Honda Fit. With similar starting price tags and well-equipped lineups, we decided to put these two models head to head to see which one came out on top. Find specs and a pricing and cargo space comparison for both models below.

|13.5 cubic feet||Cargo Space||16.6 cubic feet|
The largest and most obvious difference between the 2019 Toyota Yaris and the 2019 Honda Fit is the 2019 Yaris offers a sedan body style and the 2019 Fit offers a hatchback body style. Though, in many other ways these lineups are very similar. The price for both models can’t be beat, especially for the standard and available features found inside. But, when it comes time to decide between the two, which one provides the most bang for your buck?
It really depends on how you plan to use your vehicle. If you foresee a lot of circumstances where you would want/need to haul larger pieces of cargo that wouldn’t fit in the back seat of a traditional sedan, the 2019 Honda Fit is the obvious way forward. However, when the rear seats on the 2019 Honda Fit are upright, the cargo space between the two models isn’t as different as car shoppers might think. The 2019 Fit offers a healthy 16.6 cubic feet of space behind the second row, but the 2019 Toyota Yaris isn’t that far behind with 13.5 cubic feet for cargo of its own.
Plus, though both models are affordable, the price tag and fuel economy on the 2019 Toyota Yaris lineup can’t be beat. It offers savings on the starting MSRP and a better fuel economy score for savings right off the bat at throughout the course of ownership when filling up the tank. If you don’t need to extra cargo room that the 2019 Fit provides, we think the 2019 Toyota Yaris is the better buy.
