2016 Honda Fit
View Inventory

Both the 2016 Honda Fit and the 2015 Hyundai Accent are top picks in the increasingly competitive subcompact hatchback class. Both deliver serious fuel economy numbers, the high-tech features that Frankfort and Orland Park, IL drivers want, and fun-to-drive dynamics. You can find out which one is the better small car by following along with our comparison below!

Powertrain and Performance

It’s probably a safe bet that fuel economy is high on your priority list if you’re shopping this segment. If you drive home in the 2015 Hyundai Accent you’ll be able to expect up to 27 mpg city/38 mpg highway/31 mpg combined based on EPA estimates. Those are respectable fuel economy numbers, but the 2016 Honda Fit raises the bar. Based on EPA estimates, the Fit LX with continuously variable transmission is rated at an impressive 33 mpg city/41 mpg highway/36 mpg combined*. And there’s little difference in power output numbers, so why go with the less efficient option?

Seating and Cargo

A hatchback has the clear advantage of offering superior cargo area when compared to a sedan. The 2015 Hyundai Accent demonstrates that with an impressive 47.5 cubic feet with the rear seats folded down. That’s a solid number, but the 2016 Honda Fit can pack a massive 52.7 cubic feet total with the rear seats down, thanks to the ingenious Magic Seat configuration. The Fit also gives you more room in the cabin, at 95.7 cubic feet, than the Hyundai Accent, which only gives you 90.1 cubic feet. In layman’s terms, that’s more second row legroom, more front shoulder room, and more front hiproom in the Fit than in the Accent.

Utility and Comfort

Do you want features like 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 telescopic steering column, and a rearview camera? Then you’ll want to go with the 2016 Honda Fit, because all of those features come standard. None of those features are standard in the 2015 Hyundai Accent.
