2014 Hyundai Accent vs. 2015 Kia Forte Koup Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Hyundai Accent than in the Kia Forte Koup, due to the Hyundai Accent's smaller rear head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Kia Forte Koup, the Hyundai Accent may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

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 Koup, 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 Koup. 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 Koup have similar Destination Charges.

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

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

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Accent is significantly less powerful than the Kia Forte Koup. 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 Kia Forte Koup. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Hyundai Accent will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Kia Forte Koup.

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