Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Cruze than the Hyundai Accent. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chevrolet Cruze and the Hyundai Accent in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Cruze as you will with the Hyundai Accent, 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). The Chevrolet Cruze is somewhat more expensive than the Hyundai Accent. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Cruze carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Hyundai Accent.

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

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

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

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Cruze and the Hyundai Accent.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Cruze is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Accent.
