2015 Honda Fit vs. 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage in San Antonio

If you’re looking for a subcompact car, you’ve probably noticed that sometimes these small cars don’t offer quite as much in terms of frills as larger cars. They’re priced pretty low in comparison too. That doesn’t mean you have to totally settle for less when you invest in a subcompact car, though. One subcompact car in particular, the 2015 Honda Fit goes above and beyond in its class. The 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage is one of its top competitors, but over here at Benson Honda, we don’t think the Mirage can hold a handle to the HR-V.

First of all, the HR-V has all these safety features that the Mirage doesn’t: active head restraints, daytime running lights, a standard backup camera, and blind spot mirrors. Plus, the Fit outperformed the Mirage in IIHS as well as NHTSA crash tests.

The Fit also handles better than the Mirage. Its tires are larger, which add extra traction. Additionally, it has front and rear stabilizer bars and a longer wheelbase than its Mitsubishi rival. All of this makes a difference in terms of handling. Oh, and did we mention that the Fit also stopped shorter in Car and Driver brake tests?

Ergonomically, the new Honda Fit is definitely the champ of these two cars too. It has more space for occupants and a lot more space for cargo thanks to its Magic Seat, which folds flat into the floor. The Fit also stands out with standard smartphone integration and standard Bluetooth. Bluetooth costs extra for Mirage owners, and the Mirage doesn’t come with smartphone integration.

So, what are you waiting for? Get to know the new Honda Fit at Benson Honda!
