The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.0
5.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Kia Rio has a perky driving feel and roomy interior, though the lack of refinement, low safety scores, and dated styling limit its appeal. The 2011 Hyundai Accent, while a cheap and thoroughly adequate commuter car, lacks the sophistication and design flair seen in many other newer models its size.
