2017 Hyundai Accent

Subcompacts are the best of several worlds–a smart, reliable, comfortable car that will get you where you want to go but will also make your budget happy as well. Among the subcompacts, the 2017 Hyundai Accent is one of the best. Stylish, comfortable, and economical, the Accent is the total package.

Subcompact cars are the most likely vehicles to give you the best gas mileage without opting for a hybrid or an electric. The Accent boasts 27 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway. That’s more highway miles per gallon than either the Toyota Yaris or the Honda Fit. So when you’re commuting to work, you can know that your car is taking a smaller chunk of your paycheck than some of the other vehicles you may be looking at.

The Hyundai Accent comes in either a sedan or hatchback option, which gives you style options that you may not get with other models. Not only does the Accent give you better highway mpg, it also sports best in class 5-door cargo space in the hatchback. The back row can be folded down in a 60/40 split to give you adjustable options for multiple combinations of seating and storage. The Accent hatchback comes with a spacious 21.2 cubic feet of cargo space, more than any other subcompact. If you carry people and their stuff, and don’t want to feel like you’re in a clown car, the Accent has what you need.

The 2017 Hyundai Accent has great integrated technology for a car in this price range. Steering wheel controls give you the ability to change radio stations, set your cruise control, and activate your voice command feature without taking your hands off the wheel, which is important if you’re driving. Bluetooth capability lets you make calls and answer calls hands free. One impressive perk is the Accent’s three free months of Sirius XM satellite radio–that’s a feature that normally comes on much larger, much more expensive vehicles. USB and AUX ports also make it easy to play your own digital music from your phone, Mp3 player or flash drive. Though the Accent is a budget-friendly car, the tech doesn’t feel dumbed down.

Accent Warranty

One of the best things about the Hyundai Accent is the Hyundai Warranty, otherwise known as America’s Best Warranty. This warranty goes as twice as far as the normal new car warranty by giving you a 5 years/60,000 mile limited warranty. But you get more than that, with a 10 year/100,000 mile powertrain warranty. Want more? Your new Hyundai also comes with 5 years and unlimited miles of roadside assistance. The amount of confidence that Hyundai has in their new cars and their willingness to stand behind them definitely provides a peace of mind when you buy one.

For a fuel-efficient commute or a city-friendly subcompact ride, the 2017 Honda Fit simply can’t be beat. Its best-in-class cabin and cargo space set it apart from competitors, with head and leg room for days. Believe it or not, Fit rear-seat passengers enjoy more legroom than you’ll find in the Accord. The Fit also puts an affordable price tag on all the latest tech gear, including a road-trip-friendly navigation system. Comfort, performance, plus excellent fuel economy puts this lively hatchback on the top of everyone’s wish list.

2017 Honda Fit

With so many great things to say about the 2017 Honda Fit, it’s almost tough to know where to start. It certainly bests competitors in terms of passenger and cargo space. With more legroom than the Honda Accord, this subcompact hatchback is a great pick for urban socialites and families who want to save more than they spend on a new car. When you flip down the rear seats, you’ll create as much max cargo space as in some small crossover SUVs: 52.7 cubic feet. Although you wouldn’t normally think to bring your subcompact hatchback on an IKEA run, now you certainly can. The clever 60/40-split Magic rear seat further sets the Fit apart from other cars in this segment. Its flip-up cushion gives you floor-to-roof cargo space when you need to stow tall items, including garage sale furniture finds like end tables and lamps.

More than roominess, the Fit is known for its excellent fuel economy. The continuously variable transmission is specially designed to help you save on gas, and it’s EPA-rated to earn 33 city/40 highway mpg. That means you can spend more money on brunch dates, late-night outings, and more fun in general. This subcompact hatchback might be thrifty with gas, but it still maintains a snappy around-town presence. When you kick things into gear on winding roads, the Fit supplies sporty handling and athleticism that you might not expect from a subcompact. Driving enthusiasts will love the manual transmission, which helps you get up to speed in one quick jaunt.

If you’re also in the market for tech gear, the Fit offers a surprisingly long list at an excellent rate. The HondaLink infotainment system is your central hub for everything from smartphone integration to turn-by-turn navigation, and it does a great job of supplying you with the apps you want in a timely fashion, with a responsive touchscreen and intuitive menus. For iPhone users, voice-activated Siri Eyes Free technology supplies endless convenience, letting you alter music settings or send voice-to-text messages without looking away from traffic.

Besides playful style, best-in-class cabin space, and frugal fuel economy, the 2017 Honda Fit also supplies excellent standards in safety. In government crash tests, it earned a perfect five-star rating for overall safety. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the 2017 Honda Fit its top score of “Good” in every crash test.

The Mazda 6 isn’t far behind, with a long list of infotainment options of its own. Like the Legacy, it makes it easy to stream music or make hands-free calls. The central touchscreen even displays your text messages. LED daytime running lights help make your presence known.

Passenger Protection

This competition was almost too close to call, but we like the Mazda 6. In government crash tests, it earned a perfect five-star rating for overall protection. The rearview camera makes backing up a snap. Advanced technology, including blind spot alert, maximizes driver vigilance.
