2014 Hyundai Accent vs. 2014 Scion xD Review

Comparison Review


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

Convenience
The Hyundai Accent will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Scion xD, making it more convenient to drive.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Hyundai Accent will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Scion xD. 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 will cost more in transportation costs than the Scion xD.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Accent is a little narrower than the Scion xD, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. 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 Scion xD.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Hyundai Accent and the Scion xD do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Accent is somewhat more powerful than the Scion xD.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Hyundai Accent and the Scion xD. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Hyundai Accent will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Scion xD.

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