2014 Hyundai Accent vs. 2014 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. The Hyundai Accent and the Chevrolet Cruze have similar Destination Charges.

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

Handling
The Hyundai Accent has a smaller turning radius than the Chevrolet Cruze, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

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. The Hyundai Accent has less cargo capacity than the Chevrolet Cruze, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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