2014 Hyundai Accent vs. 2015 Hyundai Elantra Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Hyundai Accent offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Hyundai Elantra with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Hyundai Elantra will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Accent.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Hyundai Accent as you will with the Hyundai Elantra, 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). Based on MSRP, the Hyundai Accent is clearly a better financial choice over the Hyundai Elantra. 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 Hyundai Elantra have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Hyundai Accent is much slimmer than the Hyundai Elantra, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Hyundai Accent is slightly shorter than the Hyundai Elantra, which may make it easier to park.

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

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Accent is significantly less powerful than the Hyundai Elantra. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

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

Warranty
The Hyundai Accent comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Hyundai Elantra.
