The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
4.7
4.7
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Hyundai Accent has a bargain pricetag and lots of space, but its safety scores aren't competitive. The 2017 Kia Rio is a subcompact competitor that's falling behind the times. There are better cars out there for sure, but are there better deals?
