2015 Chevrolet Sonic vs. 2014 Hyundai Accent Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Sonic than the Hyundai Accent. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Sonic, drivers may find the Hyundai Accent a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Sonic as you will with the Hyundai Accent, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Chevrolet Sonic will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Hyundai Accent, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Sonic and the Hyundai Accent have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Sonic is much wider than the Hyundai Accent, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet Sonic takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Hyundai Accent.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet Sonic transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Hyundai Accent.

Handling
The Chevrolet Sonic has a larger turning radius than the Hyundai Accent, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Chevrolet Sonic and the Hyundai Accent.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Sonic and the Hyundai Accent. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Chevrolet Sonic as you will in the Hyundai Accent.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Sonic is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Accent.
