2015 Ford Fiesta vs. 2014 Hyundai Accent Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Accent than the Ford Fiesta, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Ford Fiesta and the Hyundai Accent in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Fiesta 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 Ford Fiesta is somewhat more expensive than the Hyundai Accent. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Ford Fiesta and the Hyundai Accent have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Ford Fiesta is a little wider than the Hyundai Accent, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Ford Fiesta takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Hyundai Accent.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Ford Fiesta doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Hyundai Accent.

Handling
The Ford Fiesta has about the same turning radius as the Hyundai Accent, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Ford Fiesta has less horsepower than the Hyundai Accent, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Ford Fiesta and the Hyundai Accent. The Ford Fiesta has less cargo capacity than the Hyundai Accent, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Ford Fiesta is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Accent.
