Because safety is always a top priority, it is important that your new compact car has all the latest in safety features. The 2016 Hyundai Accent Makes sure you have the extra stopping power you need in an emergency situation. The Brake Assist System will immediately apply the maximum braking force needed to stop in the shortest amount of time. The 2016 Honda Fit also comes with this feature, but it is sorely lacking in the 2016 Ford Fiesta.
In the event of an accident, you’ll want advanced features to help keep you and your passengers free of injuries. This is why the Hyundai Accent comes with Active Front Head Restraints, which help reduce whiplash injuries. Neither the Fiesta nor the Fit come with this technology.
Along similar lines, you might not think that having a panic button on your key fob is an important safety feature, but the Accent does. The Fiesta doesn’t offer this option. You’ll also get the added bonus of a heated exterior mirrors, helping you see better as you reverse or change lanes snowy conditions. This feature is offered on the Hyundai and the Ford, but not the Honda.
When it comes to the interior, this 2016 Hyundai Accent competitor comparison in Virginia shows that the Accent takes the need for comfort and convenience to the next level. Having easy to reach commands is a must if you want to stay safe on the roads, which is why all three compact cars come with steering-wheel mounted controls. However, the Hyundai Accent comes with more options to control than the competitors. For example, SiriusX® Satellite Radio and an auxiliary jack come standard in the 2016 Accent and the 2016 Fiesta, so you will have endless hours of music entertainment. The Fit doesn’t offer this level of entertainment, except on the base model.
Of course, if you want to know one of the best reasons to drive home the 2016 Hyundai Accent over the Ford Fiesta or the Honda Fit, it is all in the warranty. The Hyundai warranty gives you almost double what the competitors give you in terms of coverage. For example, you’ll get basic coverage for 60-month/60,000-miles1 with the Accent, but only 36-month/36,000-miles with the Fiesta and Fit.
