The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.6
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Hyundai Accent is a practical and economical subcompact car, but crash-test scores are below par. The 2016 Kia Rio is starting to fall behind, though an attractive design and good feature content offset its cramped rear seat and only adequate safety ratings.
