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!

My daughter had picked out her second car at Shockley via their used car webpage and when we went to look at it the next day we were greeted with fantastic customer service from the time we walk on the lot. Not only was the customer service excellent, but our salesman, Chris, was wonderful. He went above and beyond to make sure she got the car of her dreams :)

Just bought my first Honda from Shockley last night and I was very happy with my buying experience. The salesmen were upfront and honest and helped me purchase the vehicle, even an hour past closing. Shout out to Alex, Nick and the finance manager Dante for staying with me to get everything complete! Thanks!!

Went for Takata airbag recall in my '08 CR-V. Was told over the phone it would take an hour, so I planned on waiting. Upon arrival I was told that it would be more like 3 Hrs; but I had not arranged for a ride home. They kindly took me home and picked me back up in the Shockley Honda Odyssey shuttle. I would recommend this place for their service.

"Replacing car for son"

DEALERRATER
September 15, 2017

We have used this dealership several times over the past 20 years and have never been disappointed in the quality of service received. This time was no exception. We were looking for a used car for our son, and were greeted within 5 minutes of our arrival. The sales representative, Chris Curry, was courteous and helpful throughout, even though we were there for several hours and looked at many vehicles.

Went up there from Bethesda to look at a 2008 s2000 after calling and talking to Gary Brooks ( The Honda Guy) to make sure it was still available. Pulled up and it was sitting out front. Gary was with another customer when I arrived but another employee was happy to grab me the keys for a test drive. Upon return I met with Gary he helped me with no pressure and it was very laid back and friendly appearance compared to some other places that try to convince you to by something. Gary helped with my decision instead of just trying to sell me something and move on to the next customer. Would recommend anyone to check out Shockley if looking to purchase a Honda or any of their used inventory even if living int he DC area it is well worth the drive. Also the used care manger Jon Price was a great help with this purchase not only for being the manager but also being the previous owner of the car that I bought.

Nick was so helpful since the very first moment we inquired about the Pilot, he never said no to any of our requests and we were able to get to a deal super quick, I am not a big fan of car sales people as they always try to sell you things you don't need or want but Nick listened to our requirements and came back with the perfect recommendation to us. Nick's manager and Tony were also fantastic helping us with the negotiation and loan. I highly recommend the Shockley team, to get a smooth transaction. Thank you all for your help, my wife is loving her new Pilot. We will be coming back in the future.

I want to thank Nate Janes for his help in our car buying process. He was outstanding. They made it as easy as possible at Shockley. And the kids totally loved the putting green and play area while I signed paperwork. Everyone at the dealership was friendly and helpful. We had a great experience and look forward to service there in the future. Our car couldn't be in better hands. Thank you Shockley Honda!
