U.S. New & World Report in their ranking, 'Best Subcompact Cars', gave the #1 nod to the 2017 Honda Fit. They say, "The 2017 Honda Fit surpasses subcompact car rivals in many categories.

On the Fiesta they say, "... we give the Ford Fiesta a very low overall rating. There are things about it we find very charming, particularly when it's trimmed out as a sporty ST."

Car and Driver gave the 'Honda Fit'  a 5 star rating and a #2 ranking for the Honda Fit.  Comments on the Fit include, "A flexible interior, an efficient powertrain, and agreeable pricing make the Fit an easy recommendation.
