Sonic Offers Slew of Advantages Over Fit


2014 Chevy Sonic vs 2015 Honda Fit

Here at Chevy Exchange, we are constantly praising the vehicles that we sell, but many of our customers feel that we boast about our inventory simply because we have to. That’s not the case, however. Chevy models are far superior to comparable competitors—a claim that is backed by looking at the 2014 Chevy Sonic vs 2015 Honda Fit, two of the most popular subcompact cars currently available on the market.

Many of our customers here at Chevy Exchange tend to stay away from smaller vehicles as they offer a very different set of capabilities, but the 2014 Chevy Sonic is just as capable as some of the vehicles in the larger, compact segment. The 2015 Honda Fit, on the other hand, falls behind in a number of categories.

The Chevy Sonic and Honda Fit are powered by four-cylinder engines, both of which displace less than two liters, but when it comes to the power outputs, the Sonic offers a slight, yet noticeable advantage over the Fit. The engine is able to produce 138 horsepower and 125 lb-ft of torque, which is higher than the 130-horsepower rating of the smaller-displacement engine found under the hood of the 2015 Honda Fit.

When the exterior dimensions are taken into account, it’s easy to see that the Sonic and the Fit are almost exactly the same size. The biggest difference between the subcompact cars involves what can be found beneath the metal skin. For example, the 2015 Honda Fit only comes equipped with six airbags while the 2014 Chevy Sonic come loaded with 10. The airbags helped the Sonic to earn the highest-possible five-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA—a feat that the four-star-rated Fit was not able to duplicate.

To get the full experience of what separates the 2014 Chevy Sonic from the 2015 Honda Fit, we suggest that you stop by our dealership to take the safe and powerful subcompact car for a spin. We’re located just a short distance from Skokie IL, and as you can schedule a test drive right here on our website, it is more than worth your time to schedule one today and make the journey to Chevy Exchange in Lake Bluff.
