Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda Civic than the Hyundai Accent. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Honda Civic 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 Honda Civic 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 Honda Civic 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 Honda Civic and the Hyundai Accent have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Honda Civic 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 Honda Civic, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Hyundai Accent.

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

Handling
The Honda Civic has a significantly larger turning radius than the Hyundai Accent, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Honda Civic 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 Honda Civic and the Hyundai Accent. The Honda Civic has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Hyundai Accent.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Honda Civic is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Accent.
