Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Hyundai Accent than in the Toyota Corolla, due to the Hyundai Accent's smaller rear head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota Corolla, the Hyundai Accent may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Hyundai Accent as you will with the Toyota Corolla, 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). Based on MSRP, the Hyundai Accent is clearly a better financial choice over the Toyota Corolla.

Dimensions
Since the Hyundai Accent is much slimmer than the Toyota Corolla, 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 Toyota Corolla.

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

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

Powertrain
With its lower torque, the Hyundai Accent doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Toyota Corolla.

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