The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.4
6.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Hyundai Accent delivers econocar basics with a high-quality interior and fun handling for a great price. The 2010 Kia Rio has a little more personality than some other inexpensive small cars, but low safety scores and a lack of refinement hamper its appeal.
