2017 Toyota Yaris vs 2017 Honda Fit in Joliet, IL

When you’re looking for a subcompact hatchback that delivers in a big way in terms of keeping you connected and safe, it may be hard to narrow your search to the best options. Here at Thomas Toyota of Joliet, we aim to make the car-buying process as easy as possible, so we have done the research for you with our 2017 Toyota Yaris vs 2017 Honda Fit in Joliet, IL, comparison. Read on to see all of the ways the Yaris comes out on top.

The differences between the 2017 Toyota Yaris and the 2017 Honda Fit start off as soon as you have a seat inside. You’ll notice that the Yaris comes standard with a high-definition 6.1-inch touchscreen that is feature-packed. In the Fit, you’ll only find a 5-inch LCD screen as standard, which doesn’t have touch capabilities, so you’ll have to fiddle with knobs and buttons to use its features. Those who are looking to discover new music will love that the Yaris comes standard with HD Radio™1, which is a luxury you’ll only have in the very top trim of the Fit. Similarly, every song you play in the Yaris is pumped out through six standard speakers. Your tunes won’t sound as great in the Fit with only four standard speakers.

Beyond technology to make each drive more fun, our side by side look at the 2017 Toyota Yaris vs 2017 Honda Fit in Joliet, IL, also compares which subcompact hatchback has the technology to keep you safe. For starters, the Yaris comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense™ C2, which bundles features that either only come in top trims of the Fit, or are not offered at all. In this package, you’ll find the Pre-Collision System3, which helps to avoid front collisions as it warns you with both an audible and visual alert. If you do not activate your brakes and this system detects the high probability of a collision, it can apply the brakes for you, helping to reduce potential impact.

You will also have the innovative Lane Departure Alert4 within this bundle. This feature uses a special camera to detect when painted street markings on the road, and will warn with an audible beep and a flashing signal on the instrument panel you if you start to drive out of your lane without activating your signal. For prime visibility once the sun sets on I-55, Toyota Safety Sense™ C2 also boasts Automatic High Beams5, also only found in the 2017 Yaris. It uses its own camera to detect the headlights of oncoming vehicles, and will automatically switch between low and high beams for you. You won’t have such convenience in the 2017 Fit.

If a collision does occur, only the Toyota Yaris goes one step farther to ensure your protection with standard Whiplash-Injury-Lessening front seats6. They were specially designed to reduce the motion of specific parts of your body to minimize injury during all types of possible road accidents. No such peace of mind is found in the Honda Fit. And, if that isn’t enough, the Yaris comes standard with nine airbags7, while the Fit only has six standard airbags.

With tech to keep youboth connected and protected, our 2017 Toyota Yaris vs 2017 Honda Fit in Joliet, IL, comparison makes the choice clear.

2 Drivers should always be responsible for their own safe driving. Please always pay attention to your surroundings and drive safely. Depending on the conditions of roads, vehicles, weather, etc., the system(s) may not work as intended. See Owner’s Manual for details.

3 The Pre-Collision System is designed to help reduce the crash speed and damage in certain frontal collisions only. It is not a collision-avoidance system and is not a substitute for safe and attentive driving. System effectiveness depends on many factors, such as speed, driver input and road conditions. See your Owner’s Manual for further information.

4 Lane Departure Alert is designed to read the lane markers under certain conditions, and provide visual and audible alerts when lane departure is detected. It is not a collision-avoidance system or a substitute for safe and attentive driving. Effectiveness depends on many factors. See Owner’s Manual for more information.  

5 The automatic high beam system operates at speeds above 21 mph. Situations such as a dirty windshield, variable weather, lighting conditions and hilly terrain will limit effectiveness, requiring the driver to manually turn off. See Owner's Manual for details.

6 Whiplash-Injury-Lessening front seats can help reduce the severity of whiplash injury in certain rear end collisions.

7 All the airbag (AB) systems are Supplemental Restraint Systems. All ABs (if installed) are designed to inflate only under certain conditions and in certain types of severe collisions: frontal and knee ABs typically inflate in frontal collisions; side and side curtain ABs in side collisions; Roll-Sensing Curtain ABs at a severe tilt degree, roll or lateral G-force. In all other accidents, the ABs will not inflate. To decrease the risk of injury from an inflating AB, always wear seatbelts, sit upright in the middle of the seat as far back as possible and do not lean against the door. Do not put objects in front of an AB or around the seatback. Do not use a rearward-facing child seat in any front passenger seat. The force of an inflating AB may cause serious injury or death. See your Owner’s Manual for further information/warnings.
