2014 Ford Focus vs. 2014 Hyundai Accent Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Ford Focus offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Hyundai Accent with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Ford Focus, 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 Ford Focus 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 Focus 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 Ford Focus and the Hyundai Accent have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Focus is much wider than the Hyundai Accent, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Ford Focus, which is slightly longer than the Hyundai Accent.

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

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Focus is somewhat more powerful than the Hyundai Accent.

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

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