Hatchbacks have always been appealing to the drivers who’re seeking everyday practicality. The 2019 Honda Fit remains one of the best options in the segment. Not only is the Honda Fit incredibly fun to drive, but it also provides enough space for families. Great safety features give you another reason to love the new Fit. Some drivers will also be looking at the 2019 Toyota Corolla hatchback. Let’s find out which one of these small hatchbacks wins this head-to-head comparison.

Performance

Both of these cars come standard with an efficient four-cylinder engine. You can have fun without spending a lot of money on fuel. While the 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback is a solid commuter car, it’s not as engaging to drive. The Honda Fit’s sharper handling gives it a clear advantage. You’ll grow to love the Fit’s playful driving dynamics. Because the Corolla Hatchback is roughly 500 pounds heavier than the Honda Fit, it doesn’t feel as responsive. When taking a curve, you’ll definitely notice the Corolla Hatchback’s extra heft.

Interior

The 2019 Honda Fit is among the roomiest cars in the segment. While both of these hatchbacks can seat up to five people, there’s no overlooking the Fit's more spacious design. Families will certainly experience more comfort in the Fit. It gives your backseat passengers an extra 9.9 inches of legroom. Even adults will enjoy a relaxing ride. Honda’s Magic Slide seat also gives you greater cargo flexibility. Both cars come standard with a satisfying list of equipment. However, certain features are not available on the Toyota Corolla Hatchback. Only the Honda Fit offers Android Auto, which makes it easy for Android phone users to access mobile apps.

Safety

You can trust the 2019 Honda Fit to provide great impact protection. While the Toyota Corolla provides valuable driving aids such as automatic emergency braking and lane departure warning, Honda offers some exclusive safety technologies. Designed with a passenger-side camera, the Fit’s LaneWatch system helps you to spot vehicles hidden in your blind spot. You can also take advantage of Honda’s Road Departure Mitigation system. It can actually prevent you from veering off the road.


Although the 2019 Toyota Corolla proves to be a good hatchback, it loses this comparison. The 2019 Honda Fit’s responsive performance, more spacious interior design, and exclusive safety features give it the edge.
