2020 Hyundai Accent vs. Its Competition

2020 Hyundai Accent
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

What other cars should you study before you buy a Hyundai Accent? Well, there’s the Kia Rio, a mechanical twin to the Accent that lacks a fair amount of equipment when compared model to model.

The Toyota Yaris is dismal as a hatch but much better as a sedan, even though it’s plenty pricey.

The Chevy Sonic has been something of a driver’s car in this segment, as has the Ford Fiesta, but compromises abound, especially inside the Fiesta’s borderline inhospitable interior.

Still, a Fiesta ST? Sign us up—but do it quickly, since the Fiesta’s almost done with its U.S.


The Honda Fit is our pick in the small-car niche because it drives well enough and doubles as a pint-sized minivan, thanks to its flip-up, fold-down rear seats.

The Nissan Versa is new and more adept at its entry-level chores this year, but its hatchback body style is gone.

Quick Specs
The 2020 Hyundai Accent is about as basic as new cars get, and that’s where its appeal lies.
The 2020 Chevrolet Sonic looks and drives younger than its age, and still offers value and a pinch of fun.
The 2020 Nissan Versa isn't the cheapest car anymore–look to the Chevy Spark or Mitsubishi Mirage for that–and that's a good thing.
The 2020 Toyota Yaris hatchback returns, this time with desirable Mazda bones and questionable styling.
The 2019 Ford Fiesta can deliver thrills, but it shows its age in too many ways for us to recommend.
The 2019 Honda Fit is the spiritual successor to what put Honda on the map: it's small, versatile, and fuel efficient.
