The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.0
6.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
If frugal simplicity and penny-pinching is what you want, the 2010 Hyundai Accent has it. The 2008 Kia Rio is a good choice among subcompacts and it’s stylish, but standard anti-lock brakes and better side-impact protection would help its case against the Honda Fit.
