Most people want a cut-and-dried answer to this question but the truth is, it really comes down to a series of circumstances so the answer that is true for one individual may not necessarily be true for another.

Generally speaking, a Hyundai Accent is cheaper to insure than the Honda Fit. Despite the fact that the Accent is a larger automobile that costs more to purchase, it is still usually cheaper to insure. This is largely because of its safety record. In crash tests, the Hyundai Accent is considered to be far superior to the Honda Fit. In addition, there have been a number of recall notices issued by Honda that involves serious safety concerns for the Fit. As a result, a lot of insurance companies have gotten to the point where they are almost afraid to insure this vehicle. Rest assured, anyone that does insure it is going to charge more money for insuring a vehicle that might be considered to be more dangerous.

Other factors related directly to the cost of insuring either vehicle will include the individual's driving record and where the vehicles will be based. It is often more expensive to insure a vehicle for someone that has a number of accidents or tickets, as well as a vehicle that is based in an area where a lot of damaging storms occur. When all of these things are combined, it can become quite expensive to insure a Honda Fit, a vehicle that is designed for the purposes of economics and fuel conservation. Therefore, some people might find it easier to purchase the more spacious Hyundai Accent and insure it for less money. Over the life of the car, this might make enough difference to sway prospective buyers of the Honda Fit over to the Hyundai Accent.
