2017 Honda Fit vs 2017 Chevy Sonic near Middletown, MD

Interior of the 2017 Honda Fit

Vehicle shown above (left) is the 2017 Honda Fit EX-L in Aegean Blue Metallic. 

It’s easy to understand why the subcompact segment is a favorite among consumers nowadays. They are extremely efficient and easy to handle. However, the hard part is choosing the right one. That’s where Shockley Honda and the 2017 Honda Fit come in. This particular vehicle comes with an astounding amount of technology features that will allow you to enjoy every ride. To prove its greatness, we have pitted the Fit against the 2017 Chevrolet Sonic. Once it’s all said and done, it’ll become clear why Fit outshines the Sonic.

Let us begin our comparison by looking at what each of these subcompact vehicles offer the driver on the inside. Despite its smaller frame, the 2017 Honda Fit can still store a surprising amount of gear when you collapse the rear row. In fact, feel free to pack up the 52.7 cubic ft. of cargo space1 and spend the day at Middletown Park. A few items will probably have to be left behind in the Sonic, as it only offers 47.7 cubic ft. of room1. When you do need to accommodate your friends in the back, they’ll have 39.3 inches of legroom to stretch out in. Your passengers may find it difficult to find comfort in the backseat of the Sonic, as it only offers 34.6 inches of space for their legs.

As far as interior amenities go, the Honda Fit rises above the Chevrolet Sonic yet again. Everyone, especially you, the driver, will appreciate the comfort and easy cleanup of the leather upholstery that can be found in the Fit. The best that the Chevrolet Sonic can do is perforated leather, which does not possess the same appeal. When you opt for the Fit EX, you’ll receive a sunroof so you can let in the fresh air while driving. This is only an optional feature on the Sonic LT, which means you’ll have to shell out more cash for it. If you are someone who enjoys a certain music genre or artist, then Pandora®2 is definitely something you should get and it can be found in the Honda Fit. This is not offered at all in the Chevrolet Sonic.

We can’t conclude this competition without first seeing what driver-assist features each vehicle offers. You’ll really appreciate the convenience of Honda LaneWatch™3, which provides you with a small camera that displays live video on your Display Audio screen when you signal right. This way, your visibility of traffic on your right-hand side increases significantly. In fact, it reveals four times more than the passenger-side mirror alone. The best the Sonic offers is Lane Departure Warning4 , which only alerts you when you forget to signal, but does not provide you with a visual of the traffic on the side of you. 

With the information that has been presented to you above, it is safe to say that the winner of the 2017 Honda Fit vs 2017 Chevrolet Sonic near Middletown, MD, is the 2017 Fit! For a closer look at this one-of-a-kind subcompact vehicle, visit our Shockley Honda today at 7400 Shockley Drive in Frederick, MD. We hope to see you soon!

July 18, 2017

I've been a Shockley customer for years. I bought my first new car there, have had several cars serviced there, will be buying my next new car there (Bill Workman is great), and have had great experiences consistently. The only reason it's 4, rather than 5, stars is their current practice of charging well over msrp when buying parts from the counter. I was told it's becoming an industry standard, and maybe it is, but I can get the same brand new oem parts elsewhere for a third of their price. I really like to support locally owned businesses, and don't mind paying a slight premium to do so, but I can't rationalize it with such a price difference.

I searched throughout Maryland, PA, Delaware, and Virginia for great deal on a certified vehicle. My efforts led me to many dealerships and many test drives. After testing 4 cars at Shockley, I knew my search was complete -due to the sales rep (Bill), the quality of the vehicles, and the competitive pricing. I recommend visiting Shockley as your first place in search for a vehicle, or your last just to make sure you're not missing out on a better deal before you make a purchase.

This is our second time buying from Shockley and both times we dealt with Tom Moore, our Sales person and Phil Rau, Finance Manager. Our experience on buying these two cars was pleasant and smooth. Tom was very helpful on both times and made the purchasing experience easy. Phil was very patient and helpful too. His helpful attitude is second to none when we had to revisit him in order to change something. Thank you to Phil and Tom.

I am happy to give Shockley Honda, Tom Moore, Brian Ham, and all the other very pleasant staff members a 5-star rating. From the time I walked into Shockley Honda until the time I left I felt I was among a community that wanted me to be very pleased with the vehicle I chose. Tom Moore did a fine job of explaining to me and showing me the features of the Honda Fit. I felt no pressure. Brian Ham knew exactly what had to be done in finance and did it efficiently and effortlessly. I will be happy to tell others of my fine experience at Shockley Honda.

I recently purchased a new vehicle at Shockley. My family and I have been long time customers (this was our 7th car we bought from Shockley). They never disappoint. Nick Selby offered great help and was very friendly. When we were leaving the dealership every employee and salesperson thanked us for our business and congratulated me on the new purchase.

How pleasant and fun it was to get our new H Touring! From the time that we sat our feet on the dealership, we were greeted warmly and got straight to what we needed. Agreed on details, negotiated price and boom! Done! Shockley had a knowledgeable young fellow ,Trent, who new the ins and outs of that car and showed us how to safely handle all the new whistles and bells that come with this new SUV. It almost drives by itself. We R quite pleased with this Service. Gary Brooks is a great salesman who guided us smoothly throwghout the process . We R quite happy with this experience and highly recommend this dealership.

Mo Williams was very knowledgeable about the Honda Civic. There was a special incentive and he did not pressure us to purchase the car the day we were there. My wife had been looking at different dealers for a sedan and really liked Mo as a sales person and Shockley as a dealer. I don't remember the names of the other individuals we worked with that day but everyone was very professional and a pleasure to work with.
