2015 Honda Fit

There are few options in the subcompact hatchback segment right now that can match up to the 2015 Honda Fit and the 2015 Hyundai Accent. Both of these impressive small cars provide leading efficiency numbers, impressive performance, upscale design, and high-tech features. But which one offers more bang for your buck here in the Frankfort and Orland Park, IL area? Let’s find out!

Powertrain and Performance

Many drivers are putting fuel economy at the top of their list when it comes to priorities these days – especially if those with a long daily commute. The 2015 Hyundai Accent is rated by the EPA at an admirable 27 mpg city/38 mpg highway/31 mpg combined. Still, the 2015 Honda Fit offers a clearly superior EPA estimate of 33 mpg city/41 mpg highway/36 mpg combined*. When it comes down to power they both provide ample acceleration, so the choice seems cut and dry.

Seating and Cargo

While the 2015 Hyundai Accent is able to carry a respectable 47.5 cubic feet of cargo with the rear seats folded down, the 2015 Honda Fit does considerably better. The Honda Fit can carry 52.7 cubic feet total thanks to its Magic Seat fold-flat rear seats. When it comes to cabin space the Honda Fit continues to come out ahead with 95.7 cubic feet of passenger volume compared to only 90.1 cubic feet in the Hyundai Accent. That manifests in more second row legroom, front shoulder room, and front hiproom in the Honda Fit.

Utility and Comfort

While priced similarly these two vehicles aren’t exactly equipped identically. The 2015 Honda Fit gets standard features that include:

  • A vehicle theft deterrent system
  • Fog lights
  • A stereo anti-theft system
  • An exterior temperature gauge
  • A second row split folding bench seat
  • Cruise control
  • Steering wheel mounted audio controls
  • A rearview camera

The 2015 Hyundai Accent doesn’t come standard with any of those features.
