2017 Toyota Prius vs. 2017 Honda Fit: Compare Cars

The Toyota Prius hybrid remains the most fuel-efficient vehicle sold in the U.S. without a plug: 52 mpg combined for this year's all-new model. Every facet of every Prius reflects the car's designers and engineers striving for maximal efficiency from every drop of fuel.

But the smaller Honda Fit sits at the top of the subcompact economy car segment, with a combined fuel-efficiency rating of 36 mpg. It's supremely flexible, with an interior that can be configured into what passes for a small moving van, and it's also around $10,000 cheaper.

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Honda Fit gives up some fun-to-drive spunk for unparalleled interior space and flexibility. The 2017 Toyota Prius closes the gap between "driving a hybrid" and "driving a normal car," even though it still looks like nothing else on the road.
