The Accent competes with some very well-equipped, very stylish subcompact cars.
Among them, our favorite is the Honda Fit.
The Accent is roomy, but the Fit has a flip-fold rear seat that beats the Hyundai for versatility.
The Chevrolet Sonic offers refinement and a strong list of features.
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; we prefer the Yaris iA sedan to the unrelated hatchbacks.
Finally, the Ford Fiesta offers more technology and better handling, particularly as the Fiesta ST, but its seats are uncomfortable.
