Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Elantra HEV than the Hyundai Accent, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Hyundai Elantra HEV will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Accent.

Convenience
With the Hyundai Elantra HEV you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Hyundai Accent, due to its tank size and 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). Based on MSRP, the Hyundai Accent is clearly a better financial choice over the Hyundai Elantra HEV.

Dimensions

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

Performance
The Hyundai Accent has less horsepower than the Hyundai Elantra HEV, so it will probably be somewhat slower.
