2016 Hyundai Accent vs. 2016 Chevrolet Cruze Review

Comparison Review

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

Convenience
With the Chevrolet Cruze you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Hyundai Accent, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). Based on MSRP, the Hyundai Accent is clearly a better financial choice over the Chevrolet Cruze. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Hyundai Accent will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Chevrolet Cruze.

Dimensions
Since the Hyundai Accent is much slimmer than the Chevrolet Cruze, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Hyundai Accent, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Chevrolet Cruze.

Drivetrain
The Hyundai Accent has much less torque than the Chevrolet Cruze, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Performance
The Hyundai Accent has less horsepower than the Chevrolet Cruze, 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 Hyundai Accent and the Chevrolet Cruze. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Hyundai Accent as you will in the Chevrolet Cruze.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Hyundai Accent than that of the Chevrolet Cruze.
