New Toyota 2020 Yaris Hatchback vs. the Competition for Sale in Warwick, RI
The hatchback body style blends the practicality of a sedan with the resourcefulness of a crossover, but at a generally more affordable price. This class of car – basically a sedan with extra cargo space – is a great choice for those who’d like a no-fuss yet accommodating vehicle. If this sounds like you, then you ought to take a look at the newly redesigned 2020 Toyota Yaris Hatchback. While the Yaris has been around for a while as Toyota’s most value-focused four-door, the five-door version grants more cargo-carrying convenience than its counterpart. But the Yaris Hatchback nevertheless has to go toe to toe with close rivals like the Honda Fit, Kia Rio 5-Door, and Chevy Sonic Hatchback. The purpose of this page is to look closer at that competition in some of the categories that matter most to today’s buyers.
The 2020 Toyota Yaris Hatchback is one of the most fuel-efficient vehicles in this comparison, returning 32 mpg in the city and 40 mpg on the highway. In contrast, the Fit only gets 29 city/36 highway, and the Sonic Hatchback is rated for 26 city/34 highway. While the Rio 5-Door gets 33 city/41 highway, the difference is not all that drastic. The base 2020 Toyota Yaris Hatchback also has push-button ignition, a feature that cannot be found on any other car in this comparison, making those rivals seem less modern. In addition, the base 2020 Toyota Yaris Hatchback comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, both of which are left off the base Fit, as well as a six-speaker audio system (the base Fit and only gets four speakers).
On that note, the Honda Fit has not been redesigned since the 2015 model year, whereas the Yaris begins a new generation with this 2020 model. The Kia Rio was last redesigned in 2017, and the Chevy Sonic, which debuted in 2012, is still in its first generation, meaning that it has yet to be redesigned. Toyota also offers some unique paint colors for this new generation of Yaris Hatchback, bringing a little excitement to its drivers.
The 2020 Toyota Yaris also offers an edge with its standard fog lights, which help you navigate (and, just as importantly, be seen by other drivers) in poor visibility better than traditional headlights. The Rio and base-model Fit don’t have fog lights.
