2016 Ford Fiesta vs. 2016 Hyundai Accent: Compare Cars

Ford's Fiesta and Hyundai's Accent both fall into the subcompact category, which has often included first cars for new drivers or purchased as an extra car by drivers who simply want basic transportation--usually for no more than one person.

The Fiesta and the Accent both start between $15,000 and $16,000, and you'd be hard-pressed to break $19,000 even with a heavy hand on the options list. The Hyundai is a slightly better value for money, with the more expensive base Fiesta relying on econocar classic features like wind-up windows and painted steel wheels with plastic wheelcovers.

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Fiesta offers fun and features not expected at these prices, but it lacks interior space compared to top rivals. The 2016 Hyundai Accent is a practical and economical subcompact car, but crash-test scores are below par.
