Subcompact sedans are no longer the penalty boxes on wheels they once were. Witness the 2018 Kia Rio and the 2018 Honda Fit, two pint-size cars with good room inside, decent fuel economy, and available high-tech features accompanied by price tags that won’t break the bank.
We rate the 2018 Fit just ahead of the 2018 Rio, at 6.0 versus 5.4 out of 10 overall. The Fit noses ahead on account of its roomy, versatile hatchback configuration. The Rio is also offered as a hatch, while a conventional sedan is the far more popular body style.
