The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.6
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Hyundai Accent is a practical and economical subcompact car, but crash-test scores are below par. Despite its five years largely unchanged, the 2016 Chevrolet Sonic remains stylish and comfortable, and it scores big not only on safety ratings, but also driving fun.
