Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda Fit than the Honda Civic Si. The Honda Fit will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda Civic Si.

Convenience
The Honda Civic Si requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Honda Fit, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP).

Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Honda Fit and the Honda Civic Si have similar Destination Charges.

Drivetrain

Handling
The Honda Fit has a smaller turning radius than the Honda Civic Si, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.
