2014 Hyundai Accent vs. 2014 smart fortwo Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Hyundai Accent and the smart fortwo in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Hyundai Accent you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the smart fortwo, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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). The Hyundai Accent is somewhat more expensive than the smart fortwo. 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 smart fortwo.

Dimensions
Since the Hyundai Accent is much wider than the smart fortwo, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Hyundai Accent, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the smart fortwo.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Hyundai Accent does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the smart fortwo.

Handling
The Hyundai Accent has a significantly larger turning radius than the smart fortwo, making it much 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 smart fortwo. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
People who frequently chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the Hyundai Accent more than the smart fortwo, due to its significantly greater seating capacity. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Hyundai Accent will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the smart fortwo.

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