2016 Hyundai Accent vs. 2017 Kia Forte Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Forte 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 Kia Forte in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Hyundai Accent as you will with the Kia Forte, 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 Kia Forte. 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 Kia Forte have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Hyundai Accent is much slimmer than the Kia Forte, 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 Kia Forte.

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

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

Performance
The Hyundai Accent has less horsepower than the Kia Forte, 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 Kia Forte.

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