The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.2
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Hyundai Accent isn't exciting to drive, but it's one of the most comfortable, well-equipped cars its size--and still a great value. The 2014 Chevy Cruze is comfortable and practical--and now it offers a diesel engine that can return 40 mpg in real-world use.
