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 Toyota Prius. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Honda Fit and the Toyota Prius in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Toyota Prius you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Honda Fit, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). Based on MSRP, the Honda Fit is clearly a better financial choice over the Toyota Prius. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Honda Fit will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Toyota Prius.

Dimensions
Since the Honda Fit is much slimmer than the Toyota Prius, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Honda Fit, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Toyota Prius.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Honda Fit transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Toyota Prius.

Handling
The Honda Fit has about the same turning radius as the Toyota Prius, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Honda Fit has a much more powerful engine than the Toyota Prius. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Honda Fit and the Toyota Prius. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Honda Fit as you will in the Toyota Prius.

Warranty
The Honda Fit comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota Prius.
