2015 Honda Fit vs 2015 Hyundai Accent
Subcompact hatchbacks have come a long way in the last twenty years. The 2015 Honda Fit and the 2015 Hyundai Accent both distinguish themselves for offering progressive design, high-tech features, and high efficiency. They’re both affordable, fun to drive, and offer plenty of practical space for area drivers in Schaumburg and Elgin, IL. So which one will be the better option for your needs?
Powertrain and Performance
We’re willing to bet that most drivers shopping these two cars are going to put fuel economy at the top of their priorities list. So which one will burn less gas? The 2015 Hyundai Accent is rated by the EPA at 26 mpg city/37 mpg highway/30 mpg combined while the 2015 Honda Fit is rated at an impressive 33 mpg city/41 mpg highway/36 mpg combined*. The Fit is clearly superior when it comes to fuel economy.
Seating and Cargo
The 2015 Hyundai Accent is capable of fitting up to 47.5 cubic feet with the rear seats folded down. Those numbers sound good until you notice that the 2015 Honda Fit is rated at 52.7 cubic feet total with the rear seats down. The Fit also offers more passenger space with up to 95.7 cubic feet in the cabin compared to only 90.1 cubic feet in the Accent. Additionally, you’ll find more second row legroom, more front shoulder room, and more front hiproom in the Fit.
Utility and Comfort
Both of these vehicles are well-equipped, but the 2015 Honda Fit might be more so. The new 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
