Offering notable competition, the 2016 smart fortwo is a stylish two-seater designed for narrow streets and tight corners.

Read on to see how the 2016 Honda Fit and the 2016 smart fortwo compare!
Comfort and Technology Features
From the base LX to the top-tier Navi, the cabin of the 2016 Honda Fit includes plenty of comfort and convenience features for a relaxed, easy-going ride. Inside, you’ll find cloth upholstery, air conditioning, cruise control, a USB port, and Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity. For a much lower starting MSRP, the 2016 smart fortwo integrates all of the above features, and even includes a few standard and optional amenities not offered on the Fit, including:
- Cross Connect App: With the optional phone cradle, Cross Connect App turns your smartphone into a touchscreen controller, and even provides access to a navigation system – which isn’t included with the base Honda Fit.
- Optional Panorama Roof: Standard on the fortwo prime, the panorama roof lets you enjoy a skyward view, the warmth of the sun, or a cool breeze as you zip down Alpharetta streets and roadways.
- Optional 8-Speaker Sound System: Listen to your favorite tunes in concert-like quality, thanks to the available 8-speaker JBL sound system.
- Optional Sport Package: Available with the Twinamic transmission only, the Sport Package integrates everything from alloy pedals with rubber studs, to shift paddles, to a lowered, sport front and rear suspension system.
Standard and Optional Safety Equipment
The 2016 Honda Fit delivers comprehensive safety – wrapped in a small package. Multi-airbag protection, keyless access, traction and stability control, a rearview camera, and optional Honda LaneWatch are just a few of its technologies. While the 2016 smart fortwo doesn’t include a rearview camera or Blind Spot Assist, it does offer its own exclusive set of driver-assistive features, which include:
- Crosswind Assist: Using course-correcting brake intervention, this system helps the fortwo avoid instability due to harsh, side-blowing winds.
- Optional Proximity Warning Function: Using radar-based technology, this system alerts you if a collision is likely, based on the distance between you and vehicles straight ahead.
- Optional Rear Park Assist: Bumper-integrated sensors help you avoid damage by detecting obstacles within proximity of the rear bumper.
