2014 Honda Civic 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 Honda Civic than the Hyundai Accent. The Hyundai Accent will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda Civic.

Convenience
The Honda Civic will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Hyundai Accent, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Honda Civic 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 Honda Civic and the Hyundai Accent have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Honda Civic 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 Honda Civic, which is slightly longer than the Hyundai Accent.

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

Handling
The Honda Civic 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 Honda Civic 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 Honda Civic and the Hyundai Accent. The Honda Civic 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 Honda Civic is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Accent.
