2017 Volkswagen Golf vs 2017 Honda Fit

Hatchbacks are popular among drivers looking for more capability without having to upgrade to a larger vehicle. Volkswagen’s original hatch, the Volkswagen Golf, is still one of the most popular hatchbacks on the road. To demonstrate how the Golf stacks up against a top competitor, Findlay Volkswagen put together a comparison of the 2017 Volkswagen Golf vs the 2017 Honda Fit.

The highest trim levels were compared—the Golf Wolfsburg and the Fit EX-L. The Golf costs a few thousand dollars more than the Fit—but for good reason. Both the Golf Wolfsburg and the Fit EX-L are equipped with plenty of premium features, including a rearview camera and a power moonroof. However, the Golf outshines the Fit in terms of capability. The Golf offers more cargo space with all five seats in place, and delivers more horsepower for a thrilling driving experience.
