Even though you are shopping for a low-priced small car, you still want it to be as safe as possible, right? The new Honda Fit has received top honors from the NHTSA in its crash tests, garnering a 5-Star Overall Rating. In fact, the Fit did not just average a 5-Star rating; it scored five stars on a vast array of NHTSA crash and safety tests. The new Hyundai Accent was also tested by the NHTSA and did not fare as well; the Accent received a 4-Star Overall Rating which included mostly 3- and 4-Star ratings in the same tests at Honda's Fit.
On top of its impeccable safety record, the Honda Fit also is top-notch when it comes to available cargo space in a subcompact car. While the Hyundai Accent is a worthy competitor when it comes to maximum cargo capacity, the Honda Fit still surpasses it by quite a large margin. In passenger volume the story is the same; the Honda Fit is exceptionally spacious for both occupants and cargo. When you need to maximize cargo space, the Fit's second row of seating folds down completely flush with the floor of the rear cargo area -- without even removing the rear headrests!
Unlike Hyundai, Honda has outfitted its subcompact car with many of the same high-tech features that its larger cars, crossovers and SUVs get. For instance, the new Honda Fit can be had with the innovative Honda LaneWatch as well as a Multi-Angle rearview camera. The Honda LaneWatch system projects live video onto the center screen of the Fit and displays vehicles or obstacles that may be in your passenger-side blind spot. No such feature can be had on the Accent subcompact car.
