Default Which Honda?

I'm in the market to buy a new car, and I'm debating between the Honda Fit Sport (in the dark gray, MT form) and a Honda Civic Coupe DX (in dark gray as well, with a MT). What are the benefits of both vehicles compared to each other? Which is the better choice? And if you've owned both, your input would be especially helpful-thanks all!I appreciate opinions, but would prefer substantiated facts to back them up-thanks again!

I've owned a Honda Civic Coupe EX and it is an extremely nice vehicle and saves great on gas! Not too sure on the Honda Fit Sport....I would prefer the Coupe because it's alot nicer than the Fit...hence the name fit meaning you really gotta try to "fit" into that car!

I used to sell Hondas about 10 years ago and I'll tell you right now the people who get the best price on Hondas are the Asian folks.. They always come in as a family and talk to each other in Chinese then talk to the Salesman and on and on.. They come in knowing exactly what they want and they get it.. They always want all the bells and whistles , sunroof etc. (i think that is usually the EX model) and they always pay the price of the base model.. So in essence they are getting a (loaded car) for the same price as the base model.. They never budge on the terms and will spend an hour or more just calmly sticking to their position... This is the gods honest truth and if you don't believe me..the next time you see an Asian family driving a new Japanese car you'll notice it always has a sun roof.. And they always got it for free... The salespeople are already prepared for this and don't mind giving in because they know they are going to buy that day-period. You will always get the best deal when they are confident you'll do business that day.. And if they say that your offer is too low or below invoice, don't worry because they still make a profit called a "holdback" This means that they are actually paying about 1500 dollars less then the invoice as long as they pay for the car to Honda USA within 30 days of delivery, which most do.. But never bring up holdback to the dealership that will really ticks them off. They consider it off limits.. Good Luck P.S. Some hot moving colors are not as negotiable.. Be flexible..

The DX is the bottom of the line in the Civic trims. You will not get the following in the DX.A/CPower windowsPower locksRemote entryCruise controlRadioCD playerMP3 connectionAlloy wheelsThese will all be standard on the Fit Sport. In my opinion you will get so much more for your money with the Fit Sport. If you add on the items missing from the DX that you want you would be able to move up in trim levels after paying for parts and labor to install them.I'm surprised you were able to find one at a dealer, we don't order them at all.

One tiny advantage to the Fit is that is is a slightly larger vehicle inside where it counts. Taller and a bit wider than the Civic line, it is a more comfortable car to drive.If you like your interiors tight, get the Civic. If you need legroom and headroom, get the Fit.
