Comparison Review

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.

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.

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. 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 and the Hyundai Elantra HEV have similar Destination Charges.

Since the Hyundai Accent is much slimmer than the Hyundai Elantra HEV, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Hyundai Accent, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Hyundai Elantra HEV.

With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Hyundai Accent transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Hyundai Elantra HEV.

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

In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Hyundai Accent and the Hyundai Elantra HEV. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Hyundai Accent as you will in the Hyundai Elantra HEV.
