The 2014 Mazda2 vs. the 2013 Honda Fit

2014 Mazda2When you want a new car in the Tampa area, you have plenty of choices available to you, but if you want a stylish, affordable small car like the 2014 Mazda2, we hope you know to visit us in Bradenton at Cox Mazda. We’ve got the full Mazda lineup here, and that includes this sporty, efficient small car.

There are many vehicles that compete in the Mazda2’s class, though, and we want you to make sure you’re making the right choice. So how does it compare against competing vehicles like the 2013 Honda Fit?

Drivers Save in the Mazda2

When you want a great priced and stunning looking vehicle, Mazda is the way to go, and the 2014 Mazda2 falls right in line with those goals, especially when compared against the Honda Fit. To start with, you save money when you choose to drive home the Mazda2 Sport over the basic Honda Fit. Mazda’s car is priced at $15,515 (MSRP) compared to the Fit’s $16,215 for a savings of $700.

The savings keep coming too. The Mazda2 gets an EPA-estimated 35 highway mpg compared to the Fit’s 33 mpg on the highway—it may not seem like a lot, but that’s a difference that will add up day by day.

Vehicle Features

While both of these vehicles come comparably equipped at each of their two trim levels, there’s one thing that stood out to us as a red flag for the Honda Fit. In order to get Bluetooth connectivity, a feature that many drivers expect these days, the Fit has to have a navigation system upgrade.

While we’re sure many people would like the addition of a navigation system to their vehicle, it’s quite costly for drivers who just want to be able to stream music or take calls from their phone while driving. Bluetooth is much easier to add on in the Mazda2.
