2015 Hyundai Accent vs. 2014 Mazda Mazda2 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Hyundai Accent offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Mazda Mazda2. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Hyundai Accent and the Mazda Mazda2 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 Mazda Mazda2, 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). Whether you pick the Hyundai Accent or the Mazda Mazda2, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Mazda Mazda2 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Accent is about the same width as the Mazda Mazda2. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Hyundai Accent, which is slightly longer than the Mazda Mazda2.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Hyundai Accent transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Mazda Mazda2.

Handling
The Hyundai Accent has a larger turning radius than the Mazda Mazda2, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Accent has a much more powerful engine than the Mazda Mazda2. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher 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 Mazda Mazda2. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Hyundai Accent will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Mazda Mazda2.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Hyundai Accent than that of the Mazda Mazda2.
