Vehicle Safety Rating
When it comes down to vehicle safety, the 2016 Chevy Sonic is the clear winner. With a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Safety Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there is no better choice for crash safety. With only 4 stars, the 2016 Kia Fit does not even compare.
The Kia Forte features a great warranty package with better Bumper-to-Bumper and PowerTrain Limited warranties. However, the Chevy Sonic’s warranty coverage has two advantages. First, it’s Roadside Assistance Program outlasts the Kia’s by 40,000 miles, and second, it comes with a 2-year Maintenance Program that the Kia Forte lacks entirely. So the choice between the two is left to you; which advantages are more important to you?

With its great fuel economy, excellent value, and exceptional crash safety ratings, there no doubt that the 2016 Chevy Sonic is the better choice for smart car buyers in this side-by-side comparison.
