The 2016 Honda Fit and the 2016 Kia Forte5 are small hatchbacks that should appeal to anybody here in Frankfort and Orland Park, IL who wants more versatility than is offered in a sedan. Both of these vehicles provide big efficiency and plenty of up-to-date features, so which one do you pick? Just take a look at our detailed comparison below!

Fuel Economy

We know that fuel economy is important to anybody shopping in this class. The 2016 Kia Forte5 earns an EPA estimated 25 mpg city/33 mpg highway/28 mpg combined, which is actually quite a bit below average for this high efficiency segment. The 2016 Honda Fit LX with continuously variable transmission is a leader in the subcompact class with an impressive EPA rating of 33 mpg city/41 mpg highway/36 mpg combined*.

The 2016 Kia Forte5 received good rankings in most Insurance Institute for Highway Safety test scores, but received a ‘Marginal’ crash test score in the small overlap front test. The 2016 Honda Fit received an ‘Acceptable’ ranking in that crash test. Oddly, the Kia Forte5 has yet to be rated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration completely, but in tests that have been conducted, the Kia earned a 4-star rating in the front side crash test, where the Fit earned a 5-star rating**.
