The Accent isn't the value leader that it once was, but with increased feature content it still offers bang for the buck.
Though stylish and especially roomy in hatchback form, it can't compete with the Honda Fit's reconfigurable seating arrangement.
Chevy's Sonic is perhaps the most direct rival to the Accent; it also offers a strong list of features, along with the sort of refinement we don't typically expect from a subcompact.
The Ford Fiesta is arguably sportier, especially in ST trim, and offers more tech, which can be a plus or minus depending on the buyer.
The Nissan Versa and Versa Note are roomier than before, but the sedan in particular looks awkward and isn't much fun to pilot.
Toyota's new Yaris is quite stylish but not nearly as well-equipped as the Accent for the money.
