2022 Hyundai Accent vs. Its Competition

2022 Hyundai Accent
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

What other cars should you study before you buy a Hyundai Accent? Well, there’s the Nissan Versa, which is more adept at its entry-level chores since its recent redesign even though it lost its former hatchback option.

The Kia Rio is a mechanical twin to the Accent and lacks a fair amount of equipment when compared model to model.

We’d instead usher you toward two hatchbacks that act like crossovers: the Hyundai Venue, as cheap as an Accent but much more spacious, and the Kia Seltos, another hatch-over that undercuts the Kia Soul in price and size.
