Both are very good wallets and you are in charge of your bitcoins in the sense that you are not relying on third party service to hold your bitcoins.
However Multibit HD is a bit more secure in the sense that it uses a SEED and as long as you are installing it on a clean PC writing down your seed to some protected document and then keeping it on a safe place your wallet is with top security. It also uses a new address every time which is more privacy concerned so it is better. Also the fact that Multibit classic is not supported anymore (as far as I know 0.5.19 is last version but I maybe wrong about this) is also a fact that notes that the HD version is better.

Couple things to know:

1, Multibit HD is evolution of 'standard' Multibit wallet and old wallet is not longer supported.
Developers thought that HD (hierarchical deterministic) wallets will be better for users compared to the existing random key wallets.
Users were losing their private keys and there were errors caused by importing and exporting private keys.

2. HD wallet do whatever deterministic wallets do and has native Trezor support BUT MultiBit HD isn't supporting the existing MultiBit random key wallets.

3. Multibit Classic is not going to be updated with any new code or features - it is only maintained for things like network access and possible fee changes.



I would use Multibit HD - as Classic version is old, not fully supported and HD features of new wallet are really nice.

I choose multibit HD because more easy, fast and simple. I think if we use multibit HD also full secure because need more than 1 confirmation. So, I leave to use multibit classic.

HD wallet i think is very dificult, because HD wallet system addres always chance
and multibit HD its computer spec must window 64 , its 32 not run can not use multibit HD

For small (not more 1 BTC) and frequently transaction is good using for multibit HD, but for more security I suggest to use old version.

Usually newest versions have better security. I'm using old MultiBit, but i have little issues with him and i want change now for HD.. but now im confused.. Can you tell a bit more about differences in security?
