2019 Volkswagen Golf vs 2019 Honda Fit
Automotive shoppers have many choices for the compact hatchback segment, but a model that stands out from the pack is the 2019 Volkswagen Golf, with its stylish design, pleasing driving dynamics, an upscale and versatile cabin, high-level safety, and generous warranty coverage. One of the hatchback competitors of the VW Golf is the Honda fit. See how the two models stack up in this 2019 Volkswagen Golf vs 2019 Honda Fit comparison.
One of the biggest advantages of the 2019 Golf is its very generous warranty coverage. It has the backing of a 6-years/72,000-miles bumper-to-bumper Limited Warranty. The 2019 Fit has a 3-years/36,000-miles basic warranty and a 5-years/60,000-miles powertrain warranty. And for even more peace of mind, the Golf provides high-level safety with its standard safety features like the Automatic Post-Collision Braking System and Intelligent Crash Response System, which unlocks the doors, turns on the hazard lights, and shuts off the fuel pump if the vehicle gets into an accident. The Fit doesn’t offer either of these features.
