While both the Honda Accord and the Honda Fit are both superb vehicles they have been suffering with sales slowdown. The slowdown has been said to be down to the latest 10th gen Honda Civic being even better.
The new Honda Civic costs around $2,000 more than the Fit and it is cheaper than the Honda Accord. However the Civic does offer up great value and it does compete with the best qualities of the Honda Accord and Fit.
In regards to size the Honda Civic is just a few inches smaller than the Honda Accord. In fact when looking at the two side by side you cannot tell much difference. The Civic comes with a 1.5 litre turbocharged 4 cylinder engine and this offers almost as much power as the Civic Si and offers around 42mpg.
This means that the Honda Civic offers better fuel economy than the Honda Fit. Along with this the power to weight ratio is better than that of the Honda Accord. But is the Accord and Fit falling out of favour?
