2017 Honda Fit vs. 2017 Hyundai Accent: Compare Cars

Both the Honda Fit and the Hyundai Accent are economy cars, but each has some distinct appeal for buyers. The question is, which one fits you best?

We rate one of them higher by a wide margin, but before we divulge the winner, some basics. Both are sold as hatchbacks, but the Fit doesn't also offer a sedan model—which the Accent does. The Fit was entirely redesigned for 2015, while the Accent has remained pretty much unchanged since its launch as a 2012 model.

The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.0
4.7
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Honda Fit gives up some fun-to-drive spunk for unparalleled interior space and flexibility. The 2017 Hyundai Accent has a bargain pricetag and lots of space, but its safety scores aren't competitive.
