The 2016 Hyundai Accent might look like a good deal. It’s affordably priced, it offers some compelling features, it provides decent fuel economy, and it has a reasonably powerful engine. Set the Accent next to the 2016 Honda Fit, however, and you’ll quickly see that the Hyundai Accent just can’t stack up to this competitor. Take a look at our detailed comparison to see for yourself.
Compare the Fit LX and the Hyundai Accent SE and you’ll find that the Accent is missing some important features that you probably don’t want to go without.
- The Fit comes standard with Hill Start Assist, a feature that prevents the car from rolling backward on a steep grade. The Hyundai Accent makes that safety feature optional.
- The Fit gets a rearview camera standard. This feature helps drivers see what’s behind them when they might otherwise miss an obstacle or hazard using only a rearview mirror. The Accent doesn’t offer this feature in the base model.
- The Fit come standard with a split 60/40 folding rear bench seat. This gives you more flexibility to handle cargo and passengers. The Accent does not offer this feature in the base model.
- The Fit gives you both a stereo anti-theft system and a vehicle theft-deterrent system to help protect your investment. Neither of those features come standard in the Accent.
- The Fit offers a telescopically adjustable steering wheel, which makes it easier for drivers of all sizes to drive safely. The Hyundai Accent does not offer that feature in the base trim.
- The Honda Fit comes standard with steering wheel–mounted audio and cruise controls, while the Hyundai Accent only offers these as an upgrade.
