2016 Hyundai Accent vs. Its Competition

2016 Hyundai Accent

While the Hyundai Accent is roomy, the Honda Fit has the Accent beat in versatility with its configurable seating.

The Chevrolet Sonic offers refinement and a strong list of features.

The Ford Fiesta offers more technology and is sportier, particularly the Fiesta ST.

The Nissan Versa and Versa Note are roomy but not much fun to drive and the sedan styling is awkward.

The Toyota Yaris is stylish but it is not as well-equipped and the value equation is not as strong.

Quick Specs
6.6
The 2016 Hyundai Accent is a practical and economical subcompact car, but crash-test scores are below par.
7.8
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.
7.6
The 2016 Fiesta offers fun and features not expected at these prices, but it lacks interior space compared to top rivals.
8.0
The 2016 Honda Fit isn't as entertaining to drive as it once was, but it's unmatched in safety and space, thanks to the Magic Seat.
6.2
The 2016 Nissan Versa sedan and Versa Note hatchback are no-frills transportation with plenty of space, but poor safety and performance ratings.
6.8
The 2015 Toyota Yaris gets an eye-catching new face, spruced-up interior trims, and a somewhat quieter interior, but it lags behind the current crop of U.S.-market subcompacts in many ways.
