The 2013 Honda Fit vs. The 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT
There are a ton of subcompact vehicles to choose from these days, but the 2013 Honda Fit has emerged in recent years as the clear choice in the segment. Honda’s focus on reliability, comfort, and award-winning safety has made the Fit a hot commodity here at Silko Honda in Raynham, the preferred Honda dealership in the Easton area.
With so many other automakers vying for the top spot in the subcompact market, there are many other models for the Honda Fit to compete against, such as the 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT. However, while it is a quality vehicle, the GT pales in comparison to the Fit’s standard conveniences, features, and security.
Honda’s Model Will Fit into Your Budget and Lifestyle
Even though the 2013 Honda Fit offers you more than the 2013 Elantra GT, the Fit’s MSRP of $15,425 is $3000 less than that of the Elantra GT.* For this lower price tag Honda provides superior safety features, including:
Active head restraints, which in the event of a rear-end collision will move the headrests forward to prevent whiplash or more severe spinal injuries.
Smart airbags with vehicle speed sensors that deploy with different levels of force or don’t deploy at all depending on the severity of the accident and the point of impact.
Along with the aforementioned features, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety rated the Fit as a “Top Pick” for 2012. The Elantra GT has not yet been tested and lacks any such prestigious rating.
Honda Gives You Reliability, Comfort, & Convenience
Honda makes their models easier to own in all aspects. The single overhead cam in the Fit’s engine results in a much simpler design than the Elantra GT’s dual overhead cams, making it considerably easier for the engine to be fixed.
There are also over 73% more Honda dealers than there are Hyundai dealers in the United States, so the search for quality maintenance is a breeze for Fit owners. As far as a comfortable ride goes, the Fit has more front and rear headroom than the GT, with rear seats that recline to boot. Road trips have never been more enjoyable in a subcompact!
